It's Over by RohanElf It's Over by RohanElf
Grr the thumbnail looks crappy, I dont ask you guys this very often, but Full View please!

For :iconartisticaunjuli:'s Half Blood Prince Celebration: [link]

Tried a new way of doing things here, did a full sketch including shading first with graphite and then painted on to. I think it worked out ok, I'm going to work on this way of creating art me thinks

I dont think he looks much like Alan Rickman though, I rushed the whole thing too much. Given more time I think this would have been much better.

Let me know what you think, there were a few scanning issues with the graphote being shiney from underneath (le sigh) and keep in mind this was done in in less that a day ;)


IF YOU’RE GOING TO BLOG THIS ETC DO NOT REMOVE THE WATERMARK, LINK BACK, AND PLEASE LET ME KNOW SO I CAN, A) KEEP TRACK OF ALL MY WORK AND B) SEE IT!!
And thankyou so much in advance for your comments, I read every single one of them and appreciate them all even if I dont get a chance to reply to them!

This is so atmospheric - I love the colours here (and it looks almost /exactly/ like Alan Rickman - so jealous of your skillz)

Snape. Snape. Severus Snape.

Love it! It looks great, love the colors you've used. The flowyness in his hair is really great too, it makes the picture come alive really nicely~

It's a complete graphite drawing (shading and everything) and then stained with watercolours to add colour

This is done very well! It's the lips though, think you captured the essence of the curl in Rickman's lip, but not entirely. I think this would have looked double amazing if you spent your time on it. Can;t believe you did it in one sitting though. Excellent work! What sort of paint did you use?

This is an absolutely gorgeous piece. I love the use of different media here; it gives it kind of a grunge effect [for lack of a better description] that totally correlates with the character and expression. Very well done; original and extremely refined. Outstanding work!

I sketches and shaded it first as if I were just doing a drawing of the image, then I painted over the top with very watered down acrylics.
