A more realistic take on young Severus Snape. I didn't want to give him the usual scowl, but I hope he still has some of Snape's creepiness in him :)

This is so sad and beautiful. He‘s really just asking to be saved from everything that life had in store for him after this... 😭

Oh I know I am just writing (because today I joined the deviantart) But this painting is by far my favourite of Severus Snape as a little boy. It is amazing, beautiful and sad. I don't know how did you manage to draw this beautifully. I am dumfounded.

I wouldn't say creepiness as much as soulful.  He's deep here.  Young, maybe not so hurt yet, but he sees already that life is unfair.  He's just on the verge.  It's quite a stunning piece.

OH MY GOSH YES I CAN NOT BELIEVE I FOUND A PICTURE LIKE THIS THIS IS EXACTLY HOW HE LOOKS!!! Oh my goodness he's GORGEOUS!!! His mouth, loooovely, his hair-- it looks coarse and soft and --his nose is just perfect, and his eyes... So stern and gentle.. Oh I'm droooooling. Do an older one!!! But I'll take the younger one, don't mind me!

OMG, he is cute, though, isn't he. I hold on to the idea that Snape was cute as a kid. I'm amazed by your ability to transmit the whole idea of a person through a few lines around the eyes and mouth - he's not yet a bad person here, but the intensity and the piercing eyes described in the books are all there. I think that's why I keep coming back to this, because it shows a past self - just as real, but gone now - that we don't really get to see in the books. And I love the little border you've suggested around the edges, like it's a school photo that's been kept in a pocket for so many years. And of course school photos are the most obvious time capsule of our former selves. Oof, just, this gets me emotionally.

Is this based off of anyone? Because seriously, this is exactly what I picture young Severus to look like.

I definitely see Snape, but he actually reminds me a bit of Aladdin, in a good way. (I think it's the eyes.) Anyways, he's super handsome and sweet Adorable Girl Anime Emoji (My kawaii plushie) [V6]
