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

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.
What possessed me to follow through with this idea is completely and most totally beyond me. Suffice to say that at a certain point of my life a similar setting was spotted by my not-to-keen eyes and ever since that moment I have decided that I will draw said setting... there were just a couple of trees right?
These things have practically sunken the life straight out of me - yet I loved ever single second of it! Also, proud to say that no brushes out of the basic photoshop brush set have been used. ALL HAIL ME!
So, young Severus and Lily happily running down the road because I am certainly still not obsessed with Harry Potter off to play the day away.
I loved the idea of seeing everybody's favorite sour Potions Master as a child, because even if his home life was not exactly ideal at the time (or maybe because...) he found a friend in Lily Evens (later Potter) who in my opinion did not receive enough character development in the books... I mean, she was friends with Sev... antisocial, grumpy, intimidating, awesome dueler Severus Snape... COME ON! That propelled her so far up on the HP awesome-o-meter that she just as well might have passed the clouds.
I still don't know what to make of her as an adult though... all touch with her has been lost in her fifth year, so while you all enjoy, I will go help myself to some delightful fanfiction.
It saddens me deeply to know that their happy moments together did not last...
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 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...
" ...said Dumbledore, and Harry had never heard so much contempt in his voice. Snape seemed to shrink a little. [...] "And what will you give in me in return , Severus?" "In - in return?" Snape gaped at Dumbledore, and Harry expected him to protest, but after a long moment he said, "Anything". " [Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Ch. 33: The Prince's Tale]
Because no matter how many RABxSS fanarts I come up with, CANON is, was, always will be my one true love and the reason I'm still taken with HP even after all these years. JulesXCanon=OTP
IMHO denying Snape's downfall belittles his successive redemption, hence, the urge to show that, yes, there was a time in which, Albus Dumbledore, the man who trusted Severus Snape completely, felt towards said wizard the deepest disgust. Reasonably so.
