Wow!!! There's a long time I don't come here.... But this piece is wonderful, Bea!!! I love his sarcastic, cold stare. Very few people have accomplished this as well as you do. Congrats! :heart:

Just love that slightly crooked nose
and the flirting eyes and smile.
One of the most sexy Snapes I've seen :heart:
Keep on the good work :)

A wicked and dangerous smile. I wonder who's on the receiving end. Perhaps Gilderoy Lockhart?

I am in awe. I am actually in awe every time I see your Snape, but today even more so. It’s amazing how you take all his canonical features that supposedly make him ugly, put them together and … the guy is blooming gorgeous. This particular look would seduce angels. Let them weep.

Truly amazing :heart: I love his gaze, that great big nose of his and gorgeous lips. And his clothes are also perfect!
I adore your Snape's so much, almost nobody else is able to make him the way you do! :iconloveloveplz:

Okay, now that I've finished my happy dance at you unstoring your old pieces... ;) I must say, what a lovely portrait. Not maybe a lovely guy, but the rendering is awesome, and I have to admit, your Snape *is* usually appealing to my eyes. Reading back a few comments, I probably couldn't make myself say 'beautiful' about this popular creation of JKR's (must be the yellow teeth... :shh: ), but strangely appealing, oh yes. ;) Both in appearance and character.

I'm having more pieces in storage than in public...I can't believe this one for instance is already an old one (two years!)...And I can't bring myself to unstore my works massively because if I stored a deviation, it means it needed some reworking...And reworking on old pieces is hard...So that it will be quite slow...But it's already some kind of miracle that I started unstoring...

He is definitely beautiful to me in his ugliness. That's why he is fascinating and difficult to draw. Either we make him too handsome and attenuate or ignore his book features, or we make an ugly caricature of him. A complicated exercise for fans who love him.

I'm sure we all (watchers) appreciate the unstoring, no matter how long it is going to take to refine old stuff. (what I remember of it was awesome anyway ;) ) I'm still patiently waiting for that one animated smirking piece I recall was your previous avatar... or maybe it used to be an official banner of the Spinner's End club, I can't recall now. But even if it takes years to publish that one, it will be worth the wait.

@ "He is definitely beautiful to me in his ugliness. That's why he is fascinating and difficult to draw. Either we make him too handsome and attenuate or ignore his book features, or we make an ugly caricature of him. A complicated exercise for fans who love him."

I know... and understand what you mean. That's also the reason I have so few Snape-centric faves; they're either too ugly, or too handsome (straight noses... movie-hair... muscular build... just some of my no-nos). I'm pretty anxious right now, as I'm preparing to draw Snape for the first time; and the above is definitely what I want to avoid. I have drawn several versions of him, and so far, am happy about none of them... Would that I had your experience in drawing beautiful-ugly guys. :D

Damn, I didn't finish previous comment. So, wish to add, that you are drawing him very canon, but you aren't making him ugly. That's why I like your drawings :)

Vizen Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2012
There are different and many ways to draw him, respecting the book description. A hooked nose can be ugly or give the face its nobleness, for instance. Personally I see him like a beautiful man in his canon characteristics. But very often, I think the way I draw him is still too beautiful.

First, I would like to see this tattooed smoking version. *g*

Second, do you ever get tired of hearing, "Oh god, this is your best ever?" I hope not, because I think this is an incredible piece. I almost can't breathe when I look at him, looking out of the picture like that. The bit of red in the corners of his eyes is fabulous; it makes him look tired and stressed and angry or maybe it's just cigarette smoke. :)

This is an intense Snape, dear Vizen. Well done.

Now, about that topless version.......

All these versions are not new products - my stylet is broken and until my new tablet driver is installed, I don't draw... Nevermind - the unbuttoned version is done, ready for weeks but I'm never satisfied... So that it waits. I wanted to see how this one will be appreciated or not, as I'm not sure of how much it says "Snape". I'm glad it says it to you. thank you so much. :heart:
