KIRIBAN at the heart of it all by irisclaymore KIRIBAN at the heart of it all by irisclaymore
*uploaded another photo

Kiriban for *mybreathingselfagain! One of her ideas for me to work with is Snape during his years as a professor. I'm not too great at depicting age, but I gave it a go. Hope you like it, dear! :huggle:

Goodness, I almost gave up on this piece, but now that I've managed to finish it, I'm so happy I didn't. :D (Reference from the cover of Yuki Kubota that I stumbled upon on the web.)

Severus Snape (c) JK Rowling
___

I was wondering... How do you feel about fanvids on youtube with images from DA? I came across one last year called "The Prince's Tale" with James Blunt's "Tears and Rain". It was eventually taken down, though. The lyrics and the use and selection of art struck a cord with me. Now I've come to associate Snape with the song.


Tears & Rain

How I wish I could surrender my soul;
Shed the clothes that become my skin;
See the liar that burns within my needing.
How I wish I'd chosen darkness from cold.
How I wish I had screamed out loud,
Instead I've found no meaning.

I guess it's time I run far, far away; find comfort in pain,
All pleasure's the same: it just keeps me from trouble.
Hides my true shape, like Dorian Gray.
I've heard what they say, but I'm not here for trouble.
It's more than just words: it's just tears and rain.

How I wish I could walk through the doors of my mind;
Hold memory close at hand,
Help me understand the years.
How I wish I could choose between Heaven and Hell.
How I wish I would save my soul.
I'm so cold from fear.

I guess it's time I run far, far away; find comfort in pain,
All pleasure's the same: it just keeps me from trouble.
Hides my true shape, like Dorian Gray.
I've heard what they say, but I'm not here for trouble.
Far, far away; find comfort in pain.
All pleasure's the same: it just keeps me from trouble.
It's more than just words: it's just tears and rain.

He's so tragically misunderstood. He is the character I would want to run up to to hug the most.

this kinda looks like snape's getting ready for his first day as a professor at age 21, and he's pulling on those unfamiliar clothes, and he's like, 'what the f*ck am i getting myself into?"

(not to be picky or anything, but his eyes are black, no brown. still, great pic!!)

I just love how your portraits contain so much depth, emotion, and personality. When one looks into the eyes of the people you've portrayed, they enter a whole new world. That's what portraits should be. :clap:
