Little portrait by Vizen Little portrait by Vizen
Simple portrait. Nothing new, just some drawing.

Tried to struggle against my natural tendency to making him look stronger and taller than he probably is, considering that in the books he is described as thin and not specifically tall (several people are said taller than he is). In my head the cat-like/ spider-like / bat-like quality of Snape suggest he would not have a physically imposing body complexion : all his strength lies in his mind, sharp tongue, expressions, magic and billowing robes.

Belongs to JKR

I like that you play with the greens to give him that "plant that has been inside to long" complexion. I actually thought he was a tall guy, but you're right: in the book he's always looking above his nose (snort! Sexy! :3) to people, but that doesn't mean he's that tall. :)

Wow, This is exactly how I picture Snape in my head. I love Alan Rickman in the Role for the movies, but this is far more accurate to how Madam Rowling describes him.

The colours add to his dreary self. I also think that eyebrows are very important to the general appearance/expression and those are perfect. I could stare at your Snape forever! :heart:
