Time Out New York: Rupert Grint

This week's "Hot Seat" portrait for Time Out New York was Ron Weasley himself, Rupert Grint!

My first thought in terms of background was to reproduce a page from the Harry Potter books featuring Ron Weasley, but that quickly gave way to something I thought would work better visually--a piece of stock art of a castle that looked Potter-ish.

I faded it a bit, and then added the blue glow to give the whole thing a more hazy feel, which contrasted better with the portrait.

(Attention Ms. Rowling: If you would like to buy this piece from me, please send me a Paypal payment of $100,000 U.S. I know you can spare it. Thanks!)
