Severus Snape by ellaine Severus Snape by ellaine
EDIT: Sorry for bothering you again with this, but the picture has been changed again. And on another note - I'm sorry guys and gals, but no more free usage of it will be allowed since it got sold and belongs now to the big bad wolf...eeerrr, I mean the big Polish book store and multimedia company EMPIK and will be used as a part of their promotional material for the last Harry Potter book (along with two other pictures, I'm doing for them:) ).

I still don't know whether I like him or can't stand him. I guess, both. But certainly it's an interesting character and I have a weakness for those controversial, messed up and hardly likeable personalities.

And again my favourite colour scheme, I hope you don't get bored with it too fast;p

EDIT: A year later. Now I can certainly say that he is my favourite HP character. And the picture is certainly better. One of the reasons why I love digital art - you can always go back to a picture you liked and redraw it.

Sevvie rules! I love how the spell just winds around the picture, very cool!

It's so nice to come across a Spn fan who's also a HP (more specifically, a Snape!) fan! :D
OMG I WANT SEVY's BABIES!!!!!!!!!!!!! <3 -dreamy sigh-
and will be used as a part of their promotional material for the last Harry Potter book -- seriously? Congratulations! This is really nice :)
This is just stunning.
Severus is a wonderful character. I think he deserved a better life than he had, even if he made some bad choices when he was younger that haunted him the rest of his life, i dont think JKR should have killed him off.
I like the clouds outside the window and the little highlights on Severus' robes. I'm not so certain why you decided to make the...what ever it is thats coming out of his wand be red. Is there any special significance?
I also like the little bottles beind him.
The expression on his face suits his personality. very well.
