I wish... - Deathly Hallows by ellaine I wish... - Deathly Hallows by ellaine
If you're gone, I can still hear your voice
Little voids making an empty noise
Powerless, I need to rest awhile
You were in delicate arms, not mine

But out of the black pools
I've risen up
I've risen up above
'Cause I still love you
I've risen up
I've risen up above


Charlotte Martin - Under The Gravel Skies
------------------------------------------------------------------


It's sooo overdone lately, but since many of you asked so kindly, I have finished the Mirror of Erised illustration^-^. Technically something a bit different again.

I know that many of you would have their own vision of it, but for the purpose of the composition and the idea in my head I chose Lily to be alone in the mirror.
And just ignore the awkward floor - Hogwarts is a weird place and you know it:D
Oh, and for everyone who has doubts about Lily's head and arm - her legs don't end with the mirror frame, so her anatomy is fine, besides she's not real, but just a projection.

Hope you will like it^-^

Just because of how heartless he seems to everyone else, people tend to forget what he has to live with. Snape had to watch his mortal enemy marry the woman he loved, agree to be Dumbledore's spy, only for her to be killed later. In Harry's case, he had to look into Lily's eyes for years, and be reminded of his father. Then when he learns that Harry must die, he feels the need to take care of Lily's son. Makes you realize what he had to go through, and in the end suffer a painful death. He is truly a hero, and showed everyone that all Slytherins are not bad.

I've just been reading the series over again.
And while I still don't like Snape too much... him loving Lily still makes my heartstrings twinge.
This is awesome, nicely done <3

To this day this is one of my favoirte Severus/Lily pictures because it truely shows the...rawness of Severus's pain of the unattainable. It is beautifully tragic and you've captured it in such stunning art.

This picture is truly poignant. I love the dreamy sort of look to Lily and just the devistation of Snape's pose (Even without seeing his face!) Incredibl! (You have some serious talent, my friend)

wow, I LOVE this piece! It's so sad, you really got the emotion across in this one.

I have to ask though- is Lily in white because she's dead/angel/whatever, is it supposed to be that its her wedding dress he's seeing? Or just a nice contrast to head-to-toe the black that he wears? Just curious. love this piece! the details in the bodice of her dress- OMG.
