I've been wanting to do a new Hogwarts Founders picture for quite a while but could not resolve what I wanted to do. I settled on a series of stained glass windows of sorts with each of the founders holding their respective artifacts.
Above them, I have included the Latin phrases I found that pertain to each house:
Here are the translations:
Honoris Causa: For the Sake of Honor
Absit Invidia: Let Ill Will Be Absent
Sapienti Sat: Enough for the Wise
Pro Se: For Oneself.
As a note, Rowena Ravenclaw's pose is based off of on the John Singer Sargent Painting "Ellen Terry as Lady Macbeth."
Ever since I saw the painting, I've wanted to depict Rowena Ravenclaw in a similar fashion albeit less menacing.
Enjoy!

Hogwarts Founders JK Rowling

Do you mean the link for the "Download" file? It works fine for me, but I re-uploaded the file anyway. I hope that works!

Ohhhh that I have no control over, unfortunately. I will remove them from my description though, so thank you for brining it my to my attention! The Sargent painting is "Ellen Terry as Lady Macbeth" if you wanted to Google it.

This is amazing!!!! I love the latin phrases you used...it suits the houses well!
I also saw your designs for them...are they by any chance for sale as t-shirts?
Well done with the glass-stained window style!! Very nice :)

One of my founders favourite... Because they are "realistic", more natural and not " beautifuly / wonderfuly persons "

I like the way your represents this founders on the medieval window with latin inscriptions.

This reminds me of church paintings, which kind of works, because in the HP Universe, and especially in Hogwarts, we get the feeling that they are really powerful, and like saints or something similar. :)

OMG BOOOCH this is AWFUL! If you have any sense of decency you would off yourself right now!!!!! Seriously, just slit your wrists or something. Your art work is not only awful, but it is an offense against the Lord! Everything about you is wretched and miserable! Every time I think about you I shake my hands to the heavens and curse God! UGGGGGGGGHHHHH!

Ohhh, this is DEFINITELY your best founders piece to date! I really love the concept, and you've executed it beautifully! I love the texture in the background, and I really love Gryphdor's fur cloak thing and Ravenclaw's clothes especially. Beautiful job!

oh Mikey my dear friend, I was wondering when you were going to do more Harry Potter stuff scarcely an hour ago! Beauty is in the image, naturally, the coloring is amazing (far better than my own bright colors, I don't think they'd suit this much), the drawing is beautiful.... *claps* Nothing less than greatness from you! You really are amazing, Mikey. AND stunningly handsome too! Yay, flattery!

I suppose I was simply bending to your wishes! I am happy that you are enjoying my most recent foray into Harry Potter. And between you and me (and I guess whoever else reads this comment) the colors were much brighter until I put a layer of color and a texture over the original ;)

lol. we could totally pass divination, you and me. Trelawney would love us. I've gotten better at giving texture and making stuff have a slightly more realistic effect, mostly thanks to the training I got using your pictures. Thanks so much :D
