Mad Eye Moody

MAD EYE is the next installment in my series of Harry Potter sketches.  The challenge with sketching these guys is trying to capture their essence and not trying to caricature the actors. Often difficult since the actors bring so much of the character to life. My interpretation of Mad Eye is that of a bad ass wizard who hasn't had the luxury of pondering life philosophically. Mad eye doesn't prefer a wand like his peers. He follows in the footsteps of his wizarding predecessors of Tolkien's Middle Earth, Saruman, Gandalf and the other wizards who all carry staves.
