New Concept Art including Dumbledore's Funeral for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Movie Art

Artist Adam Brockbank has updated his website again with some truly stunning concept art he did for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Most notable and perhaps most moving, is this lovely and sad piece depicting the funeral for the late great Professor Albus Dumbledore. Fans will recall of course, this scene was not in the film alas.  Other work of note include this sketch of Argus Filch, secrecy sensor in hand as well as the Gnome atop the Christmas Tree at the Burrow and  the stuffed armchair o' Slughorn. Most striking (caution to parents of younger children!) are these of the Inferi one and two, and the cave scene, with the rest available here.

Thanks much to Christian from Harry Potter Xperts de for the heads up!

The Dumbledore funeral was absolubtly beautiful! It made me remember the song ‘Beautiful Day’ in this musical I’m in called Scrooge. It’s sung by Tiny Tim, and it really is beautiful.

I don’t know why they didn’t put the funeral in the movie…I thinks it’s a really dramatic and important part of the story =(

Man! He designed the painting of the dancing trolls! That is so GREAT! It would’ve been fun to see it in the actual film…

Those are fantastic! Although I wish they could’ve included the funeral in the film. But whatever, it was great anyway. And the Inferi are scary… it’s brilliant.

I love the fact that tonks hair is blue in this. I don’t recognize too many people in these tho. They look a little too dark, but I’m sure that it’s just the artist opposed to the art.
