A little, simple Severus x Lily fanart . I think it's my new OTP I wanted to draw their meeting after some time of separation, soooo here we have Sev, who greets Lily after winter break~
Also, there supposed to be Hogwart Express in the background, but it would be, hm, too heavy for the tender and bright pic I wanted to make . Drawn in the car, so forgive me mistakes in their anatomy etc |'DD

Severus and Eileen. I got the idea for this while working on the next animation and had to to do it. ...looked better in my head. Though I think I improved with nails...don't know. Also Eileen intrigues me - I feel sorry for her, but then sometimes I'm so mad at her. It's a tragical story. Exactly the kind of thing I could muse over for days.
The first time I used stock images for reference - how awesome are stock images!?

Gimp, tablet. Time?
Edit: Oh, I always forget to mention: Recently I started adding birthmarks, freckles and such to the characters. (To me Sev and Eileen seem to be likely to have birthmarsks...) Since nobody said anything about that yet I suppose it doesn't look all bad.
I did this incredibly stupid series of drawings in honor of Snape's birthday. It was actually inspired by a conversation I had with my friend, randomneses, and we were wondering what Lily's parents would think of Snape. She said that Lily's dad would be all like "WHOA LEAVE THAT DOOR OPEN MISSY" and totally not trust him at all.
Oh so that tape recorder would so work at Hogwarts, don't even question it. And yes, it was in his pocket the whole time. And lol sorry James, maybe you'll get your revenge on your birthday. Or you know, maybe actually have sex with Lily... as for Severus, this is as close as he'll ever get. With anyone.
There was always a little doubt that maybe it wasn't the best choice. Fooled myself to think this is what I needed. The power was given immediately; recognition, respect, even fear; I was given a place to belong. The price was never truly shown. The price was my soul. It was my self-respect. The price was my heart's desire. The price was too high
and I bought it.
My hands are stained with the price I continue to pay; and the mark, a constant reminder that I am not yet done paying.
About the Picture: Watercolors; about four hours. I used myself as a reference in more than one way...

I hadn't done any fanarts for *years*, and I must say I had a lot of fun doing this one!! I read HP well after everybody else (this summer) and so got all excited about it ... well after everybody else! It's really frustrating but that will teach me to be an elitist! Severus was my favourite character quite early on though, and Harry and Ron really got on my nerves haha... Mainly Harry...
