Gryffindor Fire
A common scene, our trio studying by the fireplace.
About this creation








Here's Harry, Ron and Hermione sitting by the fire in the Gryffindor common room. They spend a lot of time in those seats. I was interested in building a curved wall and this seemed like a good place to start. I'd seen this technique used in other castles and I liked the way it looked. I used a bit of artistic license on the wall. It should be a lot less curved. I wanted to accentuate the curve and the encapsulate the scene with the wall. It looks kind of cozy in there.








I wanted to use the tan bricks, it's close to the color used in the movie Hogwarts, and I have a lot of tan bricks. I don't remember reading anything in the books that described the color of the building, it could be gray for all I know. Maybe JK will put that into her encyclopedia. There's no mention of the building color over at the Harry Potter Lexicon. There isn't a lot of detail in much of the series. The Gryffindor common room is round, and it's got armchairs and tables and a fireplace. Nothing much else is mentioned. I seem to build a lot of fireplaces in the stuff I make. I wonder what that means?

This is great! It's better than the Gryffindor dormitories I have in my Hogwarts that I built. I am on the 6th book and this is almost what I imagine the common room to look like! 5 STARS!~Ginny (P.S. This is my forst time reading any of the books. So I have not read 7.)

Wow, really detailed just like all the sets. I mean, who couldn't like Harry Potter? I've re-read the series about 6-7 times now.

Nice looking MOC! It definitely has that cozy feel to it, without feeling cramped or cluttered. I like how you've got Hermione with her nose stuck in a book, and the fireplace section is beautiful. There's so much that can be done with the Harry Potter series, I'd love to see more. In fact you've inspired me...maybe I'll give some HP stuff a try one of these days. Anyway, nicely done!!

Excellent Curved wall. I like how you transitioned the top. The windows would be better if they had an arch above them rather than the empty space. I agree with Lee that the fireplace is the best part. Cool how you incorporated the hinges as a mantle. Furniture has some good detail with the grills and raisers. I bet its not too comfortable though.

Nice job on the wall to be sure, but my favourite element is the fireplace. Lee.
