Founders by Tadarida Founders by Tadarida
Godric Gryffindor, Rowena Ravenclaw, Helga Hufflepuff, Salazar Slytherin. I just recently noticed how boring and goddamn ugly my old drawing of Hogwarts' founders was. So, here's another one. I wish there was more about them in canon. I'd like to get to know Godric's dark side, Salazar's light side and so on.

By the way, does anybody think that the Sorting Hat is in fact Gryffindor's horcrux? That thing is freaking alive!

Like others have said, kudos for making them look era-appropriate. I suppose Renaissance and Victorian attire is more widely known but it's still a pet peeve to see. Clothing aside, very well done!

Absolutely gorgeous! When I saw it I immediately thought: Yes, that's how they must have looked like!
I'd like to believe that Salazar's light side was Helga, but that's just what I'd like to believe :P And that Godric is a bit narrow-minded and prejudice...

I agree about Godric. I also think that the concept that three of the founders were always noble and courageous and Slytherin was the root of all evil is a bit naive ;) I think they all had their dark sides. I don't know about Helga and Salazar, but that's actually not a bad idea at all...

There are no such people, everyone has a dark side of some sort :)
