Severus Snape -HP- by kyla79 Severus Snape -HP- by kyla79
My latest fanart piece... After the announcement of the new Harry Potter book, I'm in a mood for drawing a few illustrations for that fandom. Coming up next, a cover idea for "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows"
I hope you'll enjoy!
Oh, and I'm now going after the 240 comments I still have to respond to! sorry folks... I hate not to reply to comments... And I have got a few notes waiting too... Sorry, I am not often on deviantart, maybe twice a week.
Oh, and Happy New Year to all of you wonderful people!
PS: Snape is NOT evil! XD

I haven't seen something this good in a long time. I love the detail and obvious time you put into your art. keep up the good work.

A beautiful drawing of one of my favourite characters from the Harry Potter Series!

The room looks absolutely amazing. I love the way you always manages making a simple looking room seem so interesting and full of dark secrets. I also love the look on Severus' face and the way he is holding his wand.

I agree he is not. Always thought he was clean, and Alas! The Deathly Hallows gives him some light at last!!

Oh. Oh wow. This is... well, "beautiful" or "gorgeous" really doesn't suit, and nothing else does it justice. The atmosphere is one-of-a-kind, suiting this character to the T. There's the fantasy element there, and you've certainly spent time on the details (the books, the corked bottles, the candle-on-a-skull), but what strikes me most is the pervading greyness of everything. Oh, there's light definitely, no heavy curtains of black, but it's a very distant, inconsequential sort of light. Little gleams in the grey and blocked out by the intricate window. Fitting, I think, for a character like Severus Snape, who would certainly -choose- to stay within the darkness of his dungeons before venturing out into sunshine.

And Snape. Oh is he ever yummy. I want to SNOG him here, and I don't think I've ever, ever said that before about his character (and I've spent much too many years fawning after him). The sharp features, evil eyes, swathes of black cloth, indolent posture, and the delicious fingers, tapping against his seat. He's sexy and magnetic, absolutely irresistable. I'd like to know what he's looking at, what he's thinking about, and what prompted him into this position, certainly not his usual position! Favorites. XD

I love how you portray J.K Rowling's characters. Spot on, accurate, and so full of emotion. :)

Hell no, Snape's not evil.
I think its amazing that everyone on DA is spreading the Snape Love.

But honestly....The Princes Tale was by far the best chapter from any HP book.
