Golden Snitch



_______________________________________________________________



“The Golden Snitch, or Snitch for short, is the fastest and smallest ball on a Quidditch match. It’s known for being extremely hard to see and almost impossible to catch.

The team that catches the Snitch gains 150 points. Catching the Snitch also ends the match and it’s the only way it can be ended.

The Snitch is the size of a walnut and it’s almost always made of gold. The reason why its color is yellow is because it’s the hardest color for the human eye to notice, thus making it even more challenging to catch.”

Tried to make it look like an actual Wizard book. Well, as if Harry would force himself to read something Quidditch related. xD

Great art!!! I got Petrificus Totallus-ed by it !!! really like your series, but it always bugged me in the Harry Potters (only seen the movies though), why are there goals if catching the snitch is the only way to end a match??

It's been a while since I logged into deviant art so I was surprised, at first I thought it was someone else but I saw your style and I remembered. Glad your making with colors now. So no more black cats? Hahaha. Quick question, though, what do you use for coloring? and are the letters hand drawn, cause at first glance it seems type-written. I wouldn't be surprise if it isn't, though. :o (Eek)

Actually, yellow is the most noticable color to the human eye, which is why taxis are yellow.
