Danse Macabre by sullen-skrewt Danse Macabre by sullen-skrewt
One of my favourite classical tunes ever is Danse Macabre by Camille Saint-Saens. It's based on a French poem by Henri Cazalis, whereupon Death calls the dead from their graves and then proceeds to play the fiddle for them whilst they dance (Hey, whatever floats your boat, I suppose)

Anyway, I've tweaked it a little and so now the dead cast of Harry Potter are having a boogie:

Lily dances with Snape, James tries to cut in.
Moody loses to Fred at Exploding Snap. Hedwigs not pleased.
Dumbledore is dancing with his sister Ariana.
Lupin and Tonks, still in love (aww)
Sirius, watching the exploding snap game.
Just behind him with blond hair and a camera-Colin Creevey.
Dobby and Pettigrew (as Scabbers) dancing on Bellatrix's grave..MWUHAHAHA

I've decided that Death in this case is Voldy!! Who knew he could play the fiddle?

Obviously not all of the DH dead on here because, well just because...

One more point, I scanned this in several times with CrapScan which is why its a bit pixelated...Again.

Oh, Done in ACRYLIC!!!! :D Phew...

LOVE Danse Macabre. I like version of the song used in the short on Disney's House of Villains with Mickey and Minnie as Hansel and Gretel. This pic rocks :):)

This is absolutely beautiful!! I adore Hedwig's expression. Actually everyone's expression is just amazing.

Random thought: MuggleNet is making a HP fan art book for charity, and I bet this could make it in if you were interested.

Anyway. Keep making amazing art!!

I adore this picture. Fred's death was the worst for me :cries: and I love that he's still at it even after his death. This picture literally made me cry, it is so beautiful. I think my favorite part is that Snape and Lily are dancing. I love the whole thought that he loved her even after all that time. My next favorite would absolutely have to be the Dumbledores. Albus being reunited with Ariana: magnificent. Finally I love that Colin is included. He is far too often forgotten in artwork that honors the dead of Harry Potter. Everything is just beautiful and so wonderfully done!! :heart:

this is a beautiful concept and very well done. Like RenThe Warrior, Snape's death was one of the worst for me. Readind his backstory was physically painful. But all of the deaths in DH were awful. I love the thought of all of them reunited on The Other Side...

I love this. I hated every single one of these character's deaths, even Wormtail's. Snape's was one of the most painful, for me. Oh my god, I seriously LOVE this, seeing all these characters 'alive' again. C: <3 it.

I finally found this pic! I saw this in a youtube video a few years (I think it was years...) ago, and I saw this and I said I'd find it because there was no link as to where the pics in the vid could be found, but didn't know what to place in the search bar. So now (with a few years of intelligence knocked into me) I finally was able to think of what to place in the search bar. I found it at last! And it's beautiful! :love:
