I love the look of the Harry Potter movies - which is always going to be a big deal, as a lifelong fan - but it's still totally fascinating to see the concept art that started it all.

Artist Adam Brockbank's original drawings are beautiful in their own right, but just take a look at some of his coolest pictures - and how they often differ from the final version in the Harry Potter movies...

The Death Eaters

I'm guessing that's Lucius Malfoy from the luscious mane of hair...

----------------------------------------------------

Dumbledore's Funeral

Gah, just when I'd recovered from reading this in the book, you had to go showing this heartbreaking concept art. Typical.

----------------------------------------------------

Voldemort & Bondage

Voldemort: evil in any format.

----------------------------------------------------

Flying High

That is the kind of broom I'd like to ride - one with comfy ankle stirrups.

----------------------------------------------------

The Giants

I'm gonna go ahead and say these giants are much scarier than the ones in the movie!

----------------------------------------------------

Tentacles...

Tentacles are never a great thing to be anywhere near, especially if they're big and strong enough to break through ice.

----------------------------------------------------

Hagrid's Hut

Here's Hagrid's hut in the movie for comparison:

----------------------------------------------------

Quidditch Injuries

Yup, it's pretty much the most dangerous sport in the world.

----------------------------------------------------

Hogwarts from a distance

Every Harry Potter fan's dream.

----------------------------------------------------

The Centaurs

Totally majestic.

----------------------------------------------------

The Hogwarts Express

And Hedwig *sniff* everyone loves Hedwig *sniff*...

Poll

Do you think the Death Eater masks looked better in the movie or the concept art?
