Wizarding Wednesdays #1: Hagrid

There's a tumblr that I stumbled upon last year through artists that I follow. It's called Wizarding Wednesdays, and it's blog devoted to Harry Potter fan art. The admin post a character from the series once a week, and the community, in turn, draws the character according to how they imagined them while reading the books. It's a fun exercise for me to keep current with my art, and I've done every single one up to the week of this post.
I've basically glommed-on to Tumblr, using it to find inspiration and post current art, but I'm going to try to do better about updating this blog as well. I know many of you that read this are my personal friends and family, and I want everyone that's interested in my work to be able to keep up with what I've been doing lately, however contrarily it may have appeared as of late.
This one, for those of you how can't immediately recognize the characters, is primarily of Rubeus Hagrid, the abundantly kind half-human/half giant gamekeeper at Hogwarts (with an eleven-year-old Harry thrown in for size comparison).
