Unrequited Love -HP7 SPOILER- by kyla79 Unrequited Love -HP7 SPOILER- by kyla79
Sorry, I think this will appear twice in your watchbox (does it? I never really knew if that happened in fact...)

Sorta Spoiler for "Deathly Hallows".

EDIT: Changed the hair color due to "she looks like Hermione" comments! But you were right. A little more red doesn't hurt! :D

Snape and Lily.... Because it's cannon! :)

As I said before, unrequited love sucks...

But it's so inspiring!

Actually, I didn't mean to draw this. I was doing some fanart for Septimus in "Stardust" (yay Mark Strong :love: ) and this suddenly popped out of my pencil.

Took me about three hours, colored in photoshop CS3, textures given to me by *phoq

Really great drawing of Snape and Lily. I shipped them. Too bad they didn't get together.

It's pretty remarkable, in retrospect, how accurate your art interpreting The Prince's Tale chapter is to how the movie would portray it.

Awwww I love it :) Sadest love story EVER

holy wow! I love the pose, adds an element of the gothic.

All I can think of is Wuthering Heights with it.

I love the way you draw curls! A very solemn expression on Lily's face, I love it!

Reminds me of The Phantom of the Opera. Lily; Christine, Snape; Erik/the Phantom

absolutely wonderful
SeleneTheWerewolf Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2011
Aww, thats so sad..They need to make HP prequals (like they are doing with X-men) because people like me haven't read the books and can't get into them. I would personally love to know how everything all started before Harry was born.

ResidentFrankenstein Featured By Owner May 14, 2010  Student General Artist
I love this! :( I really like the way he is holding her cheek and she is ignoring him, it's so sad but beautiful.
YoghurtYoma Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2010  Student Traditional Artist
to be honest, before hp7 i can't remember if i liked piton, he made me feel in awe... i couldn't know if he was reliable....

but now

i think Piton is one of the BEST character of ALL story... she has created him so well!! a rough diamond with a thousand facets...a complex and secret personality . thoughts hidden. his story....I have no words to express how much I admire Snape

xxmoomin Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2009
beautiful! As always, Lily looks gorgeous. And Snape has a nose.
Baka1231 Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2010
A nose? xDD
So beautiful :)

Sev's facial expression is just heartbreaking, and I always love the more classical takes on Lily's costume.
asphodelwormwood Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2009
I love how you do curls o.o how do you give them such depth. :heart:

poor snape. :( love the way you've drawn them<33
LeolaTaylor Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2009
Ya know, I only saw Stardust in the last week or two. I saw Septimus and immediately thought of Severus. The look, the S's, he just reminded me immensely of him.

Gorgeous, really; although I have to admit, I did think it was Hermione at first. Then I looked closer and was glad it wasn't-- but how beautiful and depressing...

Ivy-Green Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2009
Fantastic! You always seem to out do yourself. Severus looks so tender and sad!
AdriiiSnape Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2009
Gorgeous. So sad..and yet..gorgeous. All the mixed emotions on their faces. Love it.

Sashahm Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I love it.
So sad though, I think she doesn't deserve him on so many levels though...especially after the fiasco in front of her commonroom.
Cellitha Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2008 poor little Severus!

Astonishing picture - perfect pose! It says it all. *wipes a tear*
