HP: Potion master by nejna HP: Potion master by nejna
Severus Snape from JK Rowling's Harry Potter. After Harmione my second favourite character in HP.
For painting the cauldron I used a reference from ~WITCHCRAFTY-STOCK and for the bottles references from ~hever-stock.

This is really a well done Snape. You've made his looks eye catching and striking without really making him handsome. His robes are wonderful with that bit of green and the environment is lovely. I agree with Droxy, I could see this as a Head portrait. (and yes, as much as I love Rickman's Snape, over the past ten years, his age has really started to show...)

Yes I adore Rickman but I think Adrian Brody would make better Snape because of age and his malnournished looks.

I cannot even tell you how many times I've thought Adrian Brody would have made an amazing Snape! He's got the look of the man down pat and surely he could train his voice.

Oh, that's so good! You've caught perfectly the hooked nose without making it TOO big, as so many others can tend to; his expression is contemplative yet severe; his face as lean as I always wished Alan Rickman's was. Plus the youth: people tend to forget that he was the youngest teacher in Hogwarts, with the possible exception of Lockhart(?) at least until Remus Lupin joined the team.
This looks like he was around the age he'd be during Half Blood Prince.
So awesome. Thank you for sharing with us!

Yes Rickman is amazing actor and his voice is to die for, but he's way too for the role if Snape.
Thank you for your comment! :hug:

thats awsome. Nice incorperation of green to his robes. And just love the bottles. The corkscrews and the way the liquid is painted inside them, really nicely done. and i like how the ones in the back are more out of focus

What a fantastic take on Snape! It's wonderful to see an interpretation of his face straight from an artist's imagination. He looks haunted and severe and sharp as a newly whetted knife. Not a beautiful face, as he was not a beautiful man, but one you (I) would remember.

Altgough I love Rickman's interpretation and work in the movies, he's not an ideal Snape I imagined in my head, he's a little too old and too handsome for the role of Potion Master we all love.
I tried to give my own interpretation of him. I'm glad to hear I've made a painting that resembles his description from the books.

Thank you! I once took a test, and it tourned out suprisingly I'm a Gryff too although I didn't expect that, but that doesn't stop me in appriciation of Snape character.

Yes, as a character I like Snape too, although I didn't like to have a teacher like him =D

Fortunately I didn't have as cruel professors as he sometimes was, but few come very close with terrible need to dress you down in their attempt to be smarter than they really were.
