The Duel by 0theghost0 The Duel by 0theghost0
They say, still, that no Wizarding duel ever matched that between Dumbledore and Grindelwald in 1945. Those who witnessed it have written of the terror and the awe they felt as they watched these two extraordinary wizards do battle.

The duel between Albus Dumbledore and Gellert Grindelwald. Though mine does not appear to be full of terror or awe. They look like they're dancing. Oh well.

You know, they are supposed to be 60-something, right? I still love it!

I'm pretty sure its obvious from the picture that I didn't care what their ages were supposed to be.

Good point. From the preview, I thought it was the 3-way duel from 1899.

I'm just guessing Dumbledore is on the left. If so that is long hair.

Well Dumbledore had auburn hair so yes you are correct. And, yes I did make it really really long.

I can't brain, so no coherent comment from me. But I think this is beautiful and the poses are very dynamic!

Oh WOWWWW! This is really good! I like the dancing-like battle. When I saw Dumbledore and Voldy dueling in Order of the Phoenix, the battle played out similarly to me. And this has all of the awe/terror that the quote inspires- I can see it clearly!

And for some reason, I recognize two of my favorite anime characters in your portrayal of Gellert and Albus.
I always believed that Albus was a blonde, actually. I know he probably wasn't, due to the fan sites I've been to, but for some reason I can't see the red head/auburn haired guy being Dumbledore.

He was described as having auburn hair in the books. The only rule I broke was that Gellert is described as being taller than Albus, but I always imagine Albus being really thin and really tall.

Yeahhh… It's probably one of the few things I completely disregard in canon. I wholeheartedly believe in making the characters your own, which is in essence what I did with Albus. (And what you seem to have done with the height difference!)

I agree with this to a certain degree. I love that the way I perceived certain characters is mine and mine alone. But I love Albus having auburn hair since he's my favorite character, and my natural hair color is auburn. But I really don't like blonde hair. Just me being nit picky.

And since the reason is a personal one, now this is just a matter of different opinion. Shall we agree to agree that we two are nitpicky and are at a bit of an impasse?
