Not that it would be entirely satisfying. :confused:

I just keep coming back here to stare at this... and boy do they stare back. It's like I caught them doing something, um, questionable. And it's like Lily's daring me to tell anyone... Severus just scoffs, he doesn't have time for this.

I am glad you like it. 

Sev is not very patient, watch out. :)

I love this! I've missed your art. :) You should definitely draw more of them, there has been a complete shortage of Sev n' Lily art on here lately. I agree with your interpretation of Lily; I see her as a very kind and compassionate person, but I also see her as very strong, independent, and tough. She would have to be tough to be best friends with Snape, of all people! Also, I love how you draw Snape's eyebrows. When I read the books, I always picture him as having very expressive eyebrows. They both look sort of... mischievous? Like they're developing a scheme telepathically? It's very in-character to me, I always imagine them as getting into trouble together in the books, like the scene where they're snooping through Petunia's bedroom. Such pills!

Thank you, this is very kind of you to say. 

You are right, I don't see many new Snily art all around. I imagine them having agreements on many things, and for different reasons. IMO their young years are still underexploited.

I really hope that JKR will provide more information about them in the future. The Prince's Tale chapter is beautiful, but it only really shows how they became friends, some of the issues that plagued their relationship, and how their friendship crashed and burned.

I've noticed that, too. It would be so interesting to learn more about Snape, though - especially his parents and his relationship with Lily. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed.

Love this.  Lily looks so sassy, and Snape's expression is pure gold.

I saw that you write for the Sherlock fandom now. I really love the series. I even swore I would paint Sherlock in 2013 (!) and didn't. No time for drawing since I started to work again :ashamed:

Yes, I do.  Just a little.  I was away from fanfic for several years while my life sort of fell apart and so many people I love were ill, suffering or passed away.  But Sherlock and John are pulling me up by the bootstraps as only Sherlock and John can, and I am starting to write a little again.

I was sorry to hear that you have been having to find a way through your own losses and grief.  It is never easy.  I hope you are able to find a mode of expression through your art.  It has always held such soul and life to me.  I could feel it whenever I looked at your Severus pieces.  

I would love to see it if you ever attempt to draw Sherlock.  He is a beautiful soul.

Sorry to hear you are so limited with your time to create due to work.  Work is such a huge drain of time and energy better spent at creative passions (well it seems to be for me anyway, so that is simply my opinion).

Anyway, I love to see any new art from you.  It is always a joy.

I understand you. I've always loved the books, and I love the BBC version. It is so... for the fans on the Internet. It made me all happy when I watched the series. I didn't join the fandom, though; certainly because I am afraid to repeat what happened to me with the HP fandom. I am really grateful for the HP fandom and in a way I am afraid to be unfaithful to it! However my love for the characters is real and the idea of drawing the actors in a personal style is challenging...So maybe I will draw them. I am glad to see that you have a new passion. I understand how much we need it. And you are a great writer, so it's wonderful that you have found this new inspiration.  

I am glad to work and it means a lot to me. However, every evening I come back home with the feeling I am just stupid and wasting my time trying to prove the contrary. When I draw I feel like it is never good enough but I draw with my emotions and not my brains and for me it is a feeling of relief - at least I don't feel stupid and I feel more peaceful and free - finally free. Then it is all about getting time and energy...I am exausted and feel depressed and tend to sleep more and more. If I draw I don't sleep, so it is all about sleeping or drawing - and if I draw it means that I fight for strength, i.e. against my lethargy.

Thank you for what you said. I know that your life has not be easy lately. Every day I feel vulnerable and wrong. My hope is that new good things will happen again and that all that is ahead is not only loss and decline. I hope the same to you, very sincerely.

Oh yes, I understand you completely.  That is how it is with me and writing.  Always trying to find that balance, always feeling like I am failing somehow.  

It is wonderful to see you drawing again, though.  As you say, you draw him from a place of emotion, which is as it should be.  I feel like at this point in my life I have to indulge these little passions and obsessions of mine because they are the one thing that gives life shine.  Everything is so dull without it.

My special interests calm and center me, and so I've started to just enjoy them instead of always judging myself.  Well, I am trying anyway.  Learning to love one's self in entirety is so difficult.  I have a lifetime of voices telling me how 'wrong' I am, and then my own inner voice as well.  But, I hope that I might learn to get to a place where I can live from a place of authenticity, and not always be trying to be what everyone else wants me to be.

Sorry, I rambled there...  Take care of yourself, dear.  You and your art are a blessing.

I actually like that both of them have the raised eyebrow and look of disapproval.  However to me he is totally disgusted but her mouth seems to indicate that although she may agree that what she is watching is stupid (Marauders?) she is slightly amused.  I just love suspicious Snape and thanks for not making Lily look sweet! :heart:

I knew YOU would mention the eyebrows! :hug: Honestly, I think that years ago I would have said that Snape lies all in his eyes. Now, I would claim he is all in the raised eyebrow. Precisely, I was totally lost in the last drawing (Snape with Dumbledore in the 'I want your word' scene) because I could NOT raise his eyebrows!!! And yes, coming back to Sev and Lily, I guess they both have a natural disapproving look in common, for totally different reasons. And I cannot imagine Lily as sweet. For me she is very strong and fierce.

Thanks. I am not very proud of myself here, honestly. I lost it during the colouring. Made me think that I shouldn't colour everything.

It's frustrating, there is one Snape right on my mind - who must be drawn...and doesn't give me a rest, again... I am happy to see that you are coming back to him as well :)

Vizen Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2014
IMO his expression is the most interesting point here. I tried to finished it (i.e. with more defined lineart and more colouring on their skins) but it changed the expression and finally I let it be that way. 
It's not usual for me : the initial expression hasn't changed from the biginning : sta.sh/01kb4rg28gje - and it was not optimal for the colouring stage. Didn't help either when I tried to make him less pretty.
Well, shortly said - I am not very happy, except for the expression :)
