The Night She Died -HP spoil- by kyla79 The Night She Died -HP spoil- by kyla79
(Full view recommended, I guess!)

Ooooh the ANGST! Fear the ANGST!

Did I already said I love me some good angst?

Anyway, Snape and Lily... You get the idea!

I had this idea a long time ago... and I really wanted to draw it after Deathly Hallows, so here it is!

Well, I know things didn't happen like this (house blown to pieces, bodies retrieved by Dumbledore etc...) but this was tremendous fun to do!

I imagine the fire thingy is some kind of Avada Kedavra side effect...

This should be my last big fanart piece before some time. Got a lot of work! I took the day off because I didn't feel too well... But still managed to do this, yes...

Ok, I stop my ramblings.

Done with mechanical pencil, wacom intuos 3 and photoshop CS3

Awesome picture. Snape looks really sad. :< I really like the green glow.

(But I can't help to think that he has left James's body and baby-Harry inside the house.)

I LOVE your style of drawing, it's so dramatic and awesome! I think it would be really cute if you draw Snape cleaning the blood of Harry's scar from that night. :D :hug:
jununy Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2012

Who do you suppose cleaned up the blood from Harry's scar? Sure wasn't hagrid, because he arrived when it was clean.
kyla79 Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2011
that is onw very interesting thought right there... Maybe I'll draw that sometime (and give you credit for the idea!!!)
Disneylyric Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2011  Student General Artist
I'm guessing the person who cleaned up the blood was Pettigrew because Sirius arrived after Hagrid, and Lupin would arrive if he knew there had been a swap.

Poor James was left in there haha. Anyway I love it! Snape is one of my favorite characters and this really shows his love for Lily :heart:
misviedotosc Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2009
Is it bad if I wished that would have happened? Still amazaing work.
AdriiiSnape Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2009
Angst indeed. I love his expression. It is a mix of fury at this actually happening as well as sorrow at the fact that it did happen. The background is exquisite as are his robes and poor Lily. She looks gorgeous..everything is gorgeous. So sad. Amazing job.
aggestardust Featured By Owner May 17, 2009
Gosh, it made me cry.

Snape really loved Lily. I can't help wishing Lily picked Snape instead of James... but, then harry couldnt be bourn...

TT_TT Wah, so sad! Jeez, the part of the book where Harry finds out about that made me cry so freakin hard....
Atariel91 Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2008  Student General Artist
owww so sad. i really liked Snape in the end, but the fact that Harry named his kid Albus Severus is just plain CRUEL! poor kid would be teased to death.

anyway, love this one, its very angsty but that is the beauty of it :D
Elven229 Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2008
