Sketch of Severus Snape from Harry Potter. I plan to do a coloured one with background, but at the moment my cg skills still suck. Working on it!

I love Snape. So dastardly and wonderful! I've tried drawing him in several styles, and I'm liking this one quite a bit... So anyway, uh... Snape is attractive! *runs away*

Hmmm.... He's clutching his left arm, and his dark mark? What is he doing with his other hand? Hmm... actually, I see him writing on the blackboard (even though that would make him left handed). Amazing detail on the hand and his clothes. Very appreciative of the canon hair and nose. He has a really tragic look about him. I could see this as his early teaching days, for some reason... Very nicely done!

his left arm looks a little weird in proportion to his right, but otherwise, it's cool. I love his face - just like I imagine it! Kudos

This pic does a good job of showing snape, and the ink work is lovely

Did you do this with a ball point? It has that look to it. I like the shine on the hair, thought the eye does look a little too large... unless you're doing it anime-style or something. I've been trying to do more inking. Fun! (And good for you for giving him a nose of the proper size.)

Yep, I did use a ball point pen (If I remember that right). And it does have an anime influence, which is why the eye is large! I tend to do most of my fanart of fictional characters in an anime style... thanks for your comment!

So dark and brooding ... I really like how this captures Snape's frequent mood. He looks slightly anime-ish, but not overly bishounen. Perfect. :)

I love this!
I hate when artists try to draw Snape as a pretty-boy.
I love Snape, but I think Alan Rickman did a terrible job playing him.

Love the description of Severus. Exactly what I pictured. A large nose, the hands of a former Death Eater. Has that sexy "I'm bad, what's the big deal," look. The hair looks awfully nice, though.

god i love the hard core Snape fans that draw him how he should be. He was not a pretty boy like Lupin or he was the pale kid with the hook nose. AN DAMN IT I THINK HE LOOKS 10 TIMES SEXIER THEN BOTH OF THEM! you put some damn good work into this and if i could click love this art I WOULD!!

Maybe he's picking stray threads off the tapestries?

Love his hair and his face, especially the nose. It's distinctive, but very handsome and gives him character. :) (Smile)

*steals Snape and pulls him behind the tapestries* :D (Big Grin)

I don't picture the dungeons having wall paper. Stone effect, with floral finsih prehapse?

I love this pic though. His hair particularly looks great. I think the fingers look a tiny bit odd, a little short, but that's the only thing I can think of to improve. Really beautiful:) (Smile)

I have a massive crush on Snape... you gotta wonder what his other hand is doing? It kind of looks like he is peeling wallpaper. to each his own, I suppose.

(I love it!)
