This piece is stunning! I love the expressions on their faces, expecially Merida's and Rapunzel's, you can actually see the excitement on their faces! This drawing reminds me a lot of the lanterns in the tangled movie and when I saw the thumbnail that was the first thing I thought! You also did an amazing job with the coloring and the shadows on them. Just one thing: the boats are too small and they look like they have short legs or something... Overall it is a really good drawing of the Big Four Hogwarts AU and one of my favourite pieces of art!
I love the expressions. The feeling of fear, but also of excitement, is definitely there in this picture, which is the case for a lot of first year students. Hogwarts knows I felt it during my first year of high school, and then of college.
