Look At Me by bladebandit Look At Me by bladebandit
"Look...at...me..."

The green eyes found the black..
but after a second,
something in the depths of the dark pair seemed to vanish
leaving them fixed, blank and empty,
and Snape moved no more.


------------------------------

After watching Half Blood Prince yesterday I felt compelled to do some fanart for Snape. :heart:

If there ever was a character with such a beautifully moving story, it's this. For those who still don't know;

"Snape's Patronus was a doe, the same as my mother's. Because he loved her for nearly all of his life."
~Harry

PS; I no longer care about revealing spoilers, as the book has been out for 2 years. If this was a spoiler to you, then you must live under a rock. XD

:heart: One of the most moving things about the whole series was this. You did a great job with really packing the emotion in there, this is amazing - you can draw deer really well.

This and the whole storyline surrounding it. I remember how I felt when I read it for the first time. D:

Ugh, goodness, yes. I felt so bad for Snape... it's terrible to love somebody and not have that returned to you.

You're very welcome, you deserved it! :heart:

Ooof--very beautiful!! Well-done, I love the hand, and the tear trickling from the doe's eye. *sniffs* I never thought I'd end up loving Snape best in the end, but--I did. I agree, his story was so heartbreaking, J.K. Rowling did an amazing job weaving it together.

Again--lovely! And sad. But still lovely!

Np, your patronus drawings are spectacular....

I'd ask to art-trade with ypou but I am not good enough to trade with you... :(
Reply
:iconbladebandit:
bladebandit Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2010
Haha, I trade with people based on what characters I like, not based on art quality. :nod:

There's no point trading with someone if I won't like what I'm drawing!

Oh, your serious? Can we trade? Though my characters are pretty poor... I'll note you?

Mmm, I understand ;D

So do you want to trade with me?
Reply
:iconbladebandit:
bladebandit Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2010
Sorry, not right now. I'm very busy; not only do I have commissions and current trades to complete, I have a life to live as well. :)

When I have the time for an art trade, I post a journal stating so, and people post their character references there. That allows me to choose someone, thus I will be choosing a character I really like.

Great work! After reading the last book, Snape joined the ranks of my favorite characters and I just love seeing art of his Patronus.

If my mother saw this she would be crying. We had a pet (free range) doe and she recently disappeared, and now my mother goes out every night and calls for her.

Snapes story was indeed sad :( its too bad he decided to choose the wrong path and only woke up after Lilys death..

You've told so much emotion about it with just the tear in the does eye and the worn hand (which looks so lifelike) holding the deers head. I really really love the simplicity of this :+fav: Just excellent work!
