omg Claire. omg. Of course your art would turn up when I did a DA search for Sirius Black. XD (I had an idea for a lovely picture of Sirius getting to have a good look at Harry for the first time and being quietly stricken by how much he looks like his parents. But I no draw good enouuuugh! )
I've been watching your stuff for awhile, but was thinking about Buckbeak lately. I love your representation here. I thought the movies take by using the head of a Monkey-eating eagle (or Philippines eagle) was really cool, but I think I enjoy your hawk/kestrel look a bit better!
