Harry Potter Picture Help

Tags: , ,
Does anybody know of a decent drawing of the Marauders that:

1. Actually includes all four of them (yes, that means Peter).
2. Is in color.
3. Doesn't include a mangled, bloody, atrociously scarred Remus.
4. Isn't Anime, chibi, or whatever Japanese fad style is currently floating around.
5. Doesn't suggest a homosexual relationship for any of the four.

I didn't realize just how much I was asking with those five requests, but apparently my taste in MWPP artwork is far from the norm.

The best I've found is this one, but it is used in the front page of fiction alley and I am uncertain I can get permission to use it on another web page.

EDIT: Forgot to add, I don't care if Lily is in the picture or not.
Feeling: busy
Listening: Time in a Bottle - Jim Croce

Funnily enough, not so long ago I was looking myself with a similar shopping list. The first one is one of the nicest I've seen; the second is cute but they do look about twelve! Don't know if they appeal or are usable for what you want.


Very Young Marauders

That first one is a rather good drawing of them. I might contact the artist. Thanks.

Have been looking for the same thing myself to make some Maruader/Moderator icons for Meta - and have found the selection sadly lacking.

Maybe you could submit a search query to Hogwarts Today and see what shows up there? Maybe someone will take pity on us and draw one, lol.

It's amazing how much Marauder art there is and how little of it I would consider truly good. Maybe I really am just too dern picky. Of course, it rather sounds like I'm in good company :)

Here's link to a collection of Marauders era art by Tinaling.


One of the pictures gilpin25 supplied is by her and she has an excellent portfolio. Good luck.

I'm working on a MWPP picture but it doesn't include Prongs. Odd, I know but when it's done, you'll understand.

I rather like this one, though again they look a bit young. It is definitely on my very short list of ones that might actually work. Thanks!

And I am looking forward to your pic, even if it is Prongs-less.

Bummer. I tracked down the artist's actual webpage and they won't allow anyone to use any of their images if the images will be modified in any way, including cropping and resizing. Full sized just won't work for me. On to the next option.
