Lily and Severus by AbigailLarson Lily and Severus by AbigailLarson
Young Lily and Severus... not quite, but might be considered a spoiler? Nah... not really. I used [link] and [link] for the reference photos.

Going through "The Deathly Hallows" again, I'm realizing how very touching Snape's love for Lily was. Sigh. So tragic...

All drawn by hand, scanned, then colored in Photoshop.

i adore your style. this was exactly what i pictured when j. k. rowling said that wizards wore "robes." i was really surprised when most people interpreted them as graduation-type robes.

AbigailLarson Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks! I'm surprised, too. The movies made a big impression with the design of the robes, with students having uniforms underneath. That seems too Muggle-schoolish. I always imagined them like wizards from old 80's cartoons, or Schmendrick the wizard from "The Last Unicorn."

I wih they talked about their friendship in the movies. Maybe they will bring it up in the last one. I know there is an extended version of the memory scene in the order of the pheonix and its after harry leaves when snape tell him to get out. Snape touches his head and then it flashes memories of lily and james kissing and it shows young snape all mad n stuff...but still.

I've just noticed you updated this picture. I absolutely prefer this new version. In the previous one, I saw a handsome young Snape and felt a little bit sad that people would love him for being lovely looking. Now, your Snape is just great, book canon and you can still love him, but for being himself. Thank you!!! I'm in love with this version.

:nod: Oddly, for a character with a strong characterization, Snape is a difficult one to draw, as we can see, looking for the different renditions. From my point of view, this is your best Snape :nod: - you can see his pale thin face and body, his long, dirty hair and his long nose, his long dark robes, and the result is much more personal, distinctively in your style. Not that I didn't appreciate the art and talent in the previous version, but to my eye, the characterization was less effective : I could have said it was some aristocratic elegant man, more than a Severus (but that's because I'm totally obsessed about Snape's characteristics, what's not a general disease) . And here, we see more of your own style, your personal touch. I'm just delighted. Thank you ! :)
