The Other Minister by madcarrot The Other Minister by madcarrot
For the Harry Potter Art Project.

My first of 2 chapters, this is for Half-Blood Prince, chapter 1, 'The Other Minister'.

In which we meet Rufus Scrimgeour, hard-arsed former head of the Auror Department, and the Prime Minister of Great Britain is momentarily blinded by Fudge's bowler, much like a deer in headlights.

This particular image comes from the end of the chapter, at the point where the PM asks why they can't just use magic against Voldemort. Scrimgeour is hugely unimpressed by this outburst, and Fudge is just thinking WTF.

You have no idea how much pleasure it gave me to colour Fudge's bowler. That is the Power of Canon, ladies and gentlemen.

Oh - that's not the British PM, that's Cornelius Fudge, with the amazing lime-green bowler. Both he and Scrimgeour are staring incredulously at the British PM, who would effectively be the viewer. :)

I love Scrimegeour and I love your depiction of him best! Very leonine (love his sideburns...). Oh and Fudge's green bowler hat--perfecto! :)

Given that this is canon art, and they're just standing beside one another, I... can't imagine what gives you the impression it's pairing art. :P

I think Fudge is supposed to represent left-wing defeatist politicians who have no balls while Scrimgeour is supposed to represent right-wing national security buff politicians who want to prop up illusions of security.

The hat does look so much fun to color. I guess it's just one of those things artists do.

And Fudge's expression just says some form of: "I'm trying to look like Scrimgeour with the eyebrow thing but really I'm scared of him." and a dash of "HELP ME!!!"

You can be involved! There's no talent or skill prerequisite.

And Ani is in DESPERATE need of participants, due to the amount of people who've dropped out or failed to come up with any art.

Srsly, go and join, there are a load of chapters available.

I'm really impressed with the pinstripes, especially around the folds of the clothing, and I love that they're both wearing...almost...the same thing, but the pop of color on Fudge's hat is really fun. Yay for canon!

And your Rufus is just awesome. Your rendition of him is making me rethink the character. Thanks. :)
