Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows / Chapter 33 "The Prince´s Tale" / by J.K.Rowling

... "But you´re Muggle-born, so someone from school will have to come and explain to your parents."
"Does it make a difference, being Muggle-born?"
Snape hesitated. His black eyes, eager in the greenish gloom, moved over the pale face, the dark red hair.
"No," he said. "It doesn´t make any difference." ...

Ok I'm not a Snape fan, and I don't like Lily, and I think this pairing is absolutely wrong - but
HIS FACE IS PERFECT, AWESOME, THIS IS HIS TRUE FACE!! You are a gorgeous artist I think you really made his PERFECT portrait - the face, the traits, the expression, the looking - PERFECT!

Very nicely done.
I like the poses and the way you framed Lily & Severus.
Severus, however, looks a little too - ordinary? Odd clothes and too-big nose not evident, or are you indicating he's internalised his otherness already?

Lovely, though.

Cheers, AmanitaMuscaria

I think he indeed was ordinary when it comes to his looks.
Extraordinary in everything else. That's what real heroes have to look like, fairly ordinary, don't they?

I wanted to make them both look ordinary, like two normal children, who do not care for looks or other wordly criteria ... who are just immerged in their own little world of magic and fantasy.

it's what it should show: a sweet memory, a moment in time which would fade ... like childhood goes by and everything ends ... I sometimes wish that Muggles like us could dwell in memories like that - take a deep breath and plunge into some Pensieve full of sweet memories ;)

They both came out really well, their faces and the plants and the background and everything, feels very authentic. Definately the best piece I have seen of this scene.
It just came to me that, at least for me, the sketchy black-and-whiteness is actually adding to the accurate feel, considering that we saw it as a long-gone-by memory. And you made it very alive. :)

... I actually make black and white drawings most of the time because that's where I'm best at ... and I leave the colours to others who are much better in using them ;)

well, I knew from very early on (that is, I hoped from very early on) that Snape loved Lily ... although I didn't think they'd known each other since their childhood days. I was very touched by this - so yes, I think this is what I put into it. My affection for this true and innocent love between these two children ;)

In a way - I think - JKR liked him very, very much, too. She has kept his true allegiance covered up for seven long books! It' s not what she calls the "bad boy syndrome" to me, I mean, the fact that Snape has many, many fans all over the world. It's the fact that Snape is a very fragile person hiding behind a shell he has constructed to protect himself from getting hurt - which, again, is very human.
... alas, I wish I understood why Lily fell for that Potter guy!

BTW I had to :lol: at the term "Severus groupies" - I love it! I think my husband should know what I really am (he suspects me already, as he sees me working on these drawings ...)

Oh you're welcome! :D
You probably hear people going "Why are you obsessed with HIM?" a lot...trust me, I get that too. We Severus groupies cannot help but be obsessed about him...he's incredible!

Why J.K. did what she did to him, I will never know... :cries:
