Professor Severus Snape by SilentKW Professor Severus Snape by SilentKW
Alright, so I started to draw this right after I finished DHs, but I had a hard time finishing it 'cuz I kept starting to cry. Lol I think there's even tear drops somewhere, but I think I managed to cover up all of them.

I also realised that I don't think I've ever drawn Adult Snape, which shocked me, and made me feel slightly ashamed of myself since he's my fav character.

Anywho, here he is (I'm glad I found a pic where he isn't sneering), and my scanner screwed up the shading when it scanned it, but there ya go...

Awesome job! Snape's my favorite character too. ;) He's awesome. I'm checking out pictures of Snape drawings to choose what Snape picture to use to draw my own Snape. wish me luck!

Beautiful drawing! I think Alan Rickman is a great choice for Snape, and apparently JKR had pictured him as her first choice for the Snape character. I can totally imagine him being as deep and passionate as the character is written, both by JKR and other fan fiction writers (like northangel 27).

My stick figure doesn't look much like the character. *joking*

Just had to :+fav: this one...

Your use of shading and highlights is phenomenal. You've certainly captured 'Snape' there. The eyes just bring it to life, the face is perfectly detailed, and the hair and cloak are amazing ~ it looks as though you could reach out and touch it!

I attempted to draw this particular pose and thought I did a pretty good job (my best Snape portrait yet) until I saw your version. You are amazing! Looks exactly like the photograph. Great job. I'm jealous.

This is beautiful. I really don't know where to start. The shading is excellent. His robes look great, his hair looks SO real... This has got to be one of THE best pencil portraits I've ever seen. :) Excellent work!

That's really good!! I'm jealous of your ability to shade so well. =P It does have an amazing likeness to the Snape played by Alan Rickman - although i prefer your younger ones because your imagination has more of a say. Still though, nice one! =D
