HP-T for thankfulness by koenta HP-T for thankfulness by koenta
heh. T, get it? tea! Im just rubbish when it comes to titles...
anyways, let's not forget about the Dursleys!! As horrible as they were, I thought the bit where Dudley said "I don't think he is a waste of space" (or something along those words) and the tea offering bit very touching and sweet. I even had tears in my eyes D8 <strike>but then i have tears for everything</strike>

I didn't make Dudley as fat as he might be. Coz when boys grow up and get taller, they stretch and just dun appear as heavy as they really weight...? AAhh...I have no idea what i just said. you guys can just ignore it all.

ps, the funny thing is, I was listening to "For Good" from Wicked. XD It felt so weird coz I suddenly had this feeling that Harry might have been the one who changed Dudley "for good." XDDD ooooookay, mb i should really shut up now.

I like this. It's a good design for him, and he looks so awkward and annoyed by what he's doing. :XD:

Really nice.

As for fatness, Dudley by the seventh book was a big bulky beefcake with precious little fat. He was also the regional junior boxing champ.

That's is very sweet! He is giving his cousin a cup of tea! Sweet Dudders! He's not so bad after all...

From what I've heard, JK said that what truely made Dudley change was the Dementor's kiss. Since nothing truely tragic happened to him, he instead saw how much of a horrible child he was.

It seemed like at first, Harry had everyone against him, but as the years went by his petty enemies moved out the way to show the real monstrous villains he has to face. I like the way you captured him

I'd really like a follow up t the series when we find out Dudley turns out alright or something. :D

I've always thought he'd own a gym or a weight-loss clinic later in life.
Apocalyptic-Hero Featured By Owner May 11, 2010
I have this huge secret (not so secret) love from Dudley. He's someone that had his life changed so drastically and instead of just going back to what was commonplace and easy for him, he actually did something about it. Well I imagine he did. I hope he did. :)

This makes Dudley positively enduring! I'm a bit behind on the movies and am now dying to see the whole Harry saving Dudley scene I've heard so much about. What movie did this happen in? Scratches head. Is turning into a Dudley fan.

Hi there! Wanted to let you know that this piece was stolen for a quiz.


The quiz is here: [link]

They admit to stealing the fanart and say that they will take down when contacted by artists. :\

Just wanted to let you know.

Crow-Sensei Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2007
He's so adorable! And I think Dudley is a really interesting character, actualy. Especialy with the last bit...

Hey, have you read this? It's all about Dudley and it's brilliant! [link]
koenta Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2007
oh awesome! thanks so much for the link! 8D
IceniFaoiltiarna Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2007
i agree with you, i didnt picture him to be quite as chubby in this book. it does mention he is lifting weights after all....
MissAnj Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2007
Awww, this is really adorable. I love his expression! And I'm glad he finally tried to be nice to Harry. I've never seen Dudley looks so cute :D
dumphan Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2007   Photographer
Aw, I just got the same feeling when I read the book. :XD: You know, the really "naaaaw, how sweet!"-feeling, but without the mixed feeling of "wtf! How did this happen? Dudley is... nice..."

I think that you did a really good job, his expression is like I imagined it to be. :)
jenna-ginny Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2007
aw! For Good. so cuuute. I think you did Duddykin's fat-but-muscular stature justice. I like it.
emlan Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2007
Rowling does describe him as "muscular" instead of fat in the chapter <3 And yesssss the tea was such a cute thing and this is such an cute picture :D
MistressJKaiba Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2007  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
ahaha, when Dudley said that I was like .. D: AND HES NEVER GONNA SEE THEM AGAIN D:
LunaJane Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2007  Hobbyist General Artist
I LOVE TEA!!!! and Dudley looks really thoughtful, I really liked that part... I spent my crying in Hedwig.
And just for the record, kids do strech out and look thinner than they are as a result, so what you said is accurate... I was a physical therapist;)
sparkpenguin Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2007  Hobbyist General Artist
no idea who this is but i love the pose and the face, especially. the whole emotion of it is so vivid.
scrumpleberry Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2007
Oh that is so sweet. Absolutely perfect. And the way you pictured his hair is very intruiging, I always saw him as blond, but he probably did dye it, so ya, thoughts and stuff.
TeaAndCookies Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2007
faved cuz it's great, AND I luv Wicked!
chupachup Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2007
omg babyyy i LOVE YOUR DUDDIEKINS. i think his body ratio proportion whatever is perfect :) what you said makes sense ! i know some guys who were pretty chub chub when they were younger, but stretched out when they got older/taller :) i love his expressionnnn and haha his hair!! <33 :) i loved that part in the book too *3*
Batata-Tasha Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Aww. I love grateful Dudley. That was sweet, and so is this. <3
jcho Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2007  Hobbyist General Artist
Aww, I loved that part! It made me get all teary too. So sweet.
OhSadface Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
That scene was pretty sad I didn't really give a crap about the other two (even if i the part where Petunia was having a crying fit over Dudders was funny to me) But I did find this super sweet. I like your design for him alot it really works. Great job, I love his expression!
InorganicBoy Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2007
I think it was really wonderful that JKR did that, it really said so much that Dudley wasn't going to grow up to be just like his parents and that he really had learned something from Harry...

Even though Petunia didn't really do anything, the fact that she paused and /tried/ to say something to Harry before leaving the house sort of meant something too, I think.

I know what you mean about boys stretching as they grow :] I think it was a good decision to draw Dudley the way you did. :heart:
kyria Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2007  Professional General Artist
AHHHHHH THAT'S WHAT I THOUGHT TOOO. And I nearly cried, too, except Petunia ruined it for me. I really feel bad for Dudley with that woman, uerhgh.

yeah cute teacup =D
SteamyDumpling Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2007
lol I couldn't really imagine Dudley getting highlights, since Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon would probably say no.

But then again, who am I kidding? Dudley always gets his way. XDD

Love how you captured Dudley in his awkward moment-ness! :3
Kiche-Mokuren Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2007
That's so cute! I was happy when Dudley said that. :D
vectorsmash Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2007
AHA! You don't get much Dudley fanart, and this just rocks. Yah.
TaintedxPyro Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2007
This makes me happy.

I think I probably teared up for them too, I was like, "GHJHJ OMFG C: HE'S SO SWEET AND CUTE AND AWWW"
KanameKururugi Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2007
"I don't think you're a waste of space". I thought it was awesome too :)

I thought it was sweet of him to leave Harry tea too (though he probably should have watched where he put it better!)

Commenting on Dudley's body shape: I think it's appropriate :)

JKR said that Dudley's worst memory that the dementors from Order of the Phoenix caused him to see was seeing himself for what he really was. Also, he had been on somewhat of a diet since book four (at least, we can hope the diet continued!)

I don't recall Deathly Hallows actually saying anything about Dudley's weight.. and if not (I may have just missed it), it'd be the only one that didn't - that could be significant!

wow long comment xD

Great work!! :hug:
little-immorality Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2007
Yup yup, DH did mention his weight.. instead of "fat" "piglike" or "the size of a baby killer whale" (as Harry so lovingly puts it... :( ) Dudley is described as "large and muscular", and it is said that he brought his weights with them into hiding.

I like this a lot.. especially his stance, how you can tell he's nervous. The guy has been caught between his parents, his cousin, his friends, his weight issues.... no wonder he's had problems with himself. I was just glad he took the iniative to apologise (in that Dudley way) and actually be human. He was one of the only ones in the series to do so. ;/
koenta Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2007
wow! Thanks so much for the info! :love:
and im slowly being converted into a Dudley fan!! LOL
KanameKururugi Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2007
You're welcome! :glomp:

And me too, I went from hating to loving Dudley the instant those words came out of his mouth!
vectorsmash Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2007
"JKR said that Dudley's worst memory that the dementors from Order of the Phoenix caused him to see was seeing himself for what he really was."

Whoa, did she really say that? You learn something new everyday...
KanameKururugi Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2007
Yeah, she has said a lot in interviews since Deathly Hallows came out - she's answered a lot of questions that went unanswered, such as that!
Byakkoya Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2007
That's super sweet. :hug:
loppi Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
Haha! Aww! I like how you depicted him! In my mind he turned out more 'thick' than fat, I think you got it down perfect! :3
Red-o Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2007
awwwww dudley is so cute x3 I JUST WANA CHOKE HIM HES SO CUTE!!! D:
morbid-lizard Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2007  Student General Artist
Aw, I had tears in my eyes too when I read that part, as silly as that could sound ç_ç...I find that scene so...adorable in a way...
And if I remember correctly, it was mentioned that Dudley grew up to be some kind of buffy, muscly big boy...Not that fat anymore, I guess, so the drawing is alright =3
