Unexpected Severus Snape appears.

Experimenting with new technique that involves colour only instead of add/multiply for light and shadow.
Renders pretty well actually. And I think I will keep that technique because it's way cleaner than my old one, that rendered too "shiny".

So yes, this is Severus as I imagined him when reading the books.
I'm amazed I didn't do any Snape since... 2002, and it was an horrible one. I'm such a fan of this character.

Don't know how long but started late this afternoon and finished this evening.

Wow. This is a very good pic. No wonder this got a DD, it really deserves one. Expression, lighting and posing in this are really great. :clap:

Thanks, and to think it went just as a "technical test" at first xD

Yep, sometimes the pics you don't plan to be something become the most beautiful things. :D

It's often that way I'd say, those you work over 30 hours onto get unnoticed and those spontaneous little things go POOF!

Yeah. They aren't something you planned to make, but something you didn't want to make but it appears anyway, so it has to be good. ;)

Huh.

He kind of came out looking a little like David Bowie, minus the hair and eyes.

Hmmm, not wrong, there may be a nose/mouth similarity !
Excalibur-T005's avatar
The forehead seems to be a contributing factor as well, I think.
