HP: Peter Pettigrew by prongsie HP: Peter Pettigrew by prongsie
My design for Peter aka Wormtail is done, this is my recent style for him. Perhaps much people aren't happy because I draw him, lol.

Before you're gonna kill me, let me explain why I like Peter.
In a writer mood, he's a good character, his personality and the way he surprised us with his true side, to me it became really good. I know that most of fandom hates Peter and I don't blame them, he killed my favorite character of HP (my beloved James Potter, so I have more reasons to hate him, right?). One of the things that I see is that Peter is like a real person, he's not the kick 4ss, not intelligent, not strong... he's a coward! And for some reason, most of the people don't like -real- characters, they like the ones who always have that high ideal that all we dreamed to be. So, for that reason, I like Peter, but not for what he did. Ok? So, don't flame me... tehee.

I feel sorry for him. I mean, when Sirius said he should be secret keeper, he had no idea what Peter was and thought of him as loyal and believed him to be their friend. But he chose Peter because he thought he was so weak and worthless that Voldemort would never think to go after him. That's a really horrible thing to think about someone who is meant to be your friend.

To me, I think the friendship started out good, they were untied by trying to help remus by becoming Animagi and being marauders. But as the years went on, James and Sirius got a bit too arrogant, they were bullies and thought themselves just a bit too clever. Peter started to become more of a groupie or fanboy than an actual friend and they didn't treat him so well. James did grow up but I think the damage was done and by th time he'd grown up, he was starting to focus more on Lily. Peter really should have been allowed to drift away form them but I think James if the type who would never allow that even if it would have been for the better. 

Obviously, it was Peter's choice to go dark but I still think they shouldn't have treated him the way they did when they truly believed he was on their side.

I love it because I like to see pictures of him where he's normallooking and not ... "ugly" as some people can do him into. Because he was one of the guys before he turned to the Death Eaters. I agree with you it's an interesting side of him when he suddenly shows his true(is it?) side.
After all, I do recognizes the younger me sometimes when he gets "bullied" by his friends but doesn't dare to speak up. How big is the possibility that I would also turn to the other side?
Maybe people doesn't like him because some people recognizes themselves in him and don't want to know that they could have done the same thing...

Ohmy, I'm rambling! :blush: I just wanted to say that I like you making him into one of the guys (because noone suspected him before it happened) and he's certainly cute~! :heart:

aw, he looks so cute in this drawing! much better than he does in the movies. lol :) great job!
Xadren Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2009
To me Peter was a good person (he managed to enter Gryffindor) that was seduced by power persons (not power, because he don't like it) so he became corrupted. It's very sad, he was not a hero before and was not a antihero after, just a silly shadow with no redemption...

this is exactly how i imagined peter. Im *ATTMPING* to write a marauders fan fic based off me and my rfeinds and i paired up my friend with peter and she was all "why" and i just told her because hes awesome. no one gets it. so yea. thanks for not drawing him all ugly!! *favs*

Lol! Great pic! i I do like Peter but not madly i suppose; the real character i hate is Ginny. Lol. My fave character is probably either Sirius or Remus. Or preferably together. In a bed. With chocolate sauce. Same for Draco adn Harry. :D ^o^

Awwwwwww I love this pic he is soooooooooo cute I wish he was this handsome when he grew up.
TheCoffeeFairyChan Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2008
Awesome Picture! Wormtail is an Awesome character! And probably one of my favorites! (But Snape is my first Favorite!) Wormtail is probably one of my favorites because he is pretty funny in his own way! Especially since Timothy Spall plays Wormtail! Timothy Spall is always making me and my younger brother laugh! And my brother does an Amazing impression of Wormtail! But anyway! Again Great job!

Poor Mauraders......

Yeah, Peter was a nice kid in school; that's why his friends trusted him, and why James let him be the secret-keeper. (But one does have to wonder why he was placed in Gryffindor, since he was a coward for going to the dark side...) It is very sad to think about a smart, sweet kid whose life seems to be going great grow up to be evil and practically smothering Voldie. *ugh!* Why, Peter, why?

Anywho, huzzah for all the characters who are three dimensional! And huzzah for your beautiful drawing!

(And just a side-note: How weird would it be to find that your pet that you let sleep with you and that you cared for turned out to be an old man who killed your best friend's parents?! Gah, poor ron! *excuse the pun!*)

I totally agree with you about peter. And i thank you for not making him ugly because of what he did. I believe he grew that way over the years after hogwarts. It is really good.
prongsie Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2007  Student Digital Artist
I really don't like when people portrayed Peter as an ugly fat character :/ is WRONG for me, I don't know, I really like the character, personality, etc... The path he choose after Hogwarts is different as he was in school so...

We are twins. i think the same thing!

Great minds think the same!!! B) we're teh smex!
lunahlove Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I luff you. You rock.

Except for one thing. To quote JK, she says Peter IS intelligent - he wouldn't have been able to do what he did if he wasn't. So, yeah.

I LUFF PETER, though. As a child, Peter obviously wasn't very malicious. The Marauders were friends with him for a REASON. Yeah.
prongsie Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2007  Student Digital Artist
I always believed Peter was intelligent, I mean, you're with the Marauders, being a dumb doesn't work and plus he was an animagus! You really need skills for that age...
lunahlove Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Heehee. Yeah, and I love Peter. Yup yup.

There is a kid I know who looks JUST LIKE PETER.

Awesome! I bet Peter was a sweety when he was a kid! I hate him when he's older but while he was a teen I love him!
DuelistofLight Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2007
From what I've seen, Peter -or at least young Peter- is quite possibly the most screwed-over character in the HP Fandom. Though I can't really bring myself to hate book-age Peter, either. Pity and dislike, yes. Hate... not so much.
I've always seen young Peter as being sort of like Neville, honestly: not really incompetent, but perceived as such, and an almost total lack of self-confidence. And where Neville had Harry and the DA, Peter had... school-age James and Sirius. Much as I like them, they couldn't have been good for Peter's suffering little ego... ^_^;
prongsie Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2007  Student Digital Artist
People just hate him. If you asked for a reason they told you "OMG HE KILLED THE PEOPLE!" and forget him in MANY fanarts and almost ALL the fanfics... is like "WTF!!" for me x_x

Mmm... Yes in fact, I always had this idea of Neville as the "Peter" part in the new generation but as you can see they choose a different path (as you can read in the last book for Neville as an example).
Misanglea Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2007
This is a cute cute cuteeee Peter, I don't like Peter when he is older, but...yeah...I like Scabbers too much! xD
And oh well, I supose he isn't evil in the school time, so I'm pro-younger-Peter

he's cuter than i would have drawn HIM, but the drawing's awesome! absolutely XD[link]

I'm glad you draw Peter! Without him the Marauders just wouldn't be them...And I think I'd crumble if they didn't have the little guy of the group. :D Very cute and one of my favs yet of him. ^^ Keep on drawing! - Iamme :+fav:

I really thank you for your comment!! And yes!! Go Peter <33
Sunoku Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2006


Do you know how rare it is to see a picture of Peter that makes him at least look a little amicable??? Pretty darned rare.

And Peter WAS a Marauder. He had to have been good at one point or another, for them to accept him. They were (James, Sirius, Remus) all supposedly smart, wouldn't they have seen through a ruse? And he WAS in Gryffindor.

He IS a real person. Like most of us Earthlings (Tauri if you watch Stargate and <3 Teal'c), he's afraid of death and gravitates towards the person most likely to win. Voilà, meet Peter.

Awesome picture, anywho.


prongsie Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2006  Student Digital Artist
It's always a pleasure to meet people who think the same as me, because all the things you've said are exactly what I want to show to the people (:

Thank you!

I can forgive Peter for the weakness he showed when betraying Harry's parents but never for killing Cedric Diggory.

you draw Peter just like I imagined him... dude that's weird =P
I agree with you on the whole hating Peter, but like sorta liking him thing... I hate it how some fanfics don't even have him in it... or like kill him off in first year
anyways, great picture <3

But he's so cute in this picture!~While Peter was such an asshole *+and ugly in my memory*. *nods very fast*
You did a great job on the drawing though! Nice work
ChineseKawaiiKitten Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2005
Whoa, you actually drew Peter all nicely and boyish. Most people draw off his future deviant side and make him all short and ugly, or draw him in his rat form... or just leave him out altogether.
I'm very glad that you drew him like this. He looks very sweet and it's always the sweet quiet followers that they never think will 'go to the dark side fo the force'. ^-^
But you are very right. Peter is a great character for a writer to have. But most people think on the fan bases and how he betrayed his friends and kills poor James. (for some reason I'm more of a fan to James, Remus, Sirius and Peter then I am to Harry and .co) But he is really a very deep and interesting character, perfect for a writer. If I actually wrote Harry Potter fanfics, I know Peter would be one of my favorites to write for. hehe, but I'm still stuck on writing about KaixRei so ^-^
prongsie Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2005  Student Digital Artist
Yeah!! You really know what ah'm talking about with the Peter thing, and look my fave HP chara is James so I have more reason for hate Wormtail.
Ah'm too more fan of the parent generation than the children generation ^^;
Thanks so much :3!!
ChineseKawaiiKitten Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2005
Yeah, you do have good reason to hate little Peter. I do too since my fav character is Sirius and Peter framed him and made he go through twelve years in prison with the Dementors. *tears* And I cried when he went through the curtions. I had to stop reading the fifth book for a few days after that.
Whoot! Another parent generation fan. Wow, that's two things we have in common. Cosplaying Rei and this. ^-^ ...well more if you count KaixReiness and whatnot.
And your welcome. ^-^ :hug:

I'm not saying i HATE Peter........But he made a HUGE premeditated mistake! How do you fucking betray your friends that had bowed to fucking never betray YOU!?? And they didn't!! Bastard!.........But he still has he's grace, twisted as it might be......fucking asshole....But yeah, GREAT pic, He looks SO cute! Who would have tought he was so weak? why the hell was he in Griffyndor????...Asshole...fucking bastard....

Hehehe, caray, qué Peter más monísimo! Yo me lo iamgino más feillo, pero adorable, así chiquitico y regordete! Con esa carita que le has hecho cuesta creer lo que hará más tarde XDDDDDD Mu mono! Y a mí, me encanta Peter, es quizá el personaje más humano, más trágico de todos! Hay que dibujar más a PEEETEEER!!! XDDD un saludito!

yo no odio a peter o.o creo que no he odiado a ningún personaje de HP... ah no, la cara de sapo sí me cagaba la madre ù.u...

yo a peter siempre me lo imaginé gordito o.o jeje
prongsie Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2005  Student Digital Artist
Pues es que yo tampoco odio a algún personaje de HP, incluso a Bellatrix la considero muy buen chara... quizá Cho Chang me tenga harta pero porque cumple con su propósito, aunque sí... creo que ella sería la única porque es la clásica fresa y stuff...

Sí, creo que esa es la representación general de Peter por aquello de cómo aparece en PoA, pero yo me imagino que lo gordito lo ganó cuando comenzó a tragar como Scabbers, y que de joven era flaquito, escuálido... características de un cobarde... o no sé, simplemente así salió. A lo mejor le voy añadiendo un poquito más de masa.
Blurred-Dream Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2004
Ahora que lo pienso... tienes razón, eso de que a las personas no les gustan los personajes reales, o que prefieren aquello que anhelan ser o tener es muy cierto!!!! Y aunque Peter sigue cayéndome mal por lo que hizo ¬¬, el que dibujaste se ve muy lindo ^o^!!!!!!, jejeje, nada con lo que yo me imaginaba que era Peter XD, jejeje
