So this is a part of a project. But I'm having currently 4 open projects, plus the un-storage going on...So...I cannot promise it is going to be completed soon.

And yes, I'm all for profiles lately. I apologize sincerely for repeating myself but obsessed people won't change that easily...

On another note, browsing my favourites, I was looking for what would define my inner Snape again...Which led me to a deadlock again. I pay sincerely tribute to the Snape artists who influence me but if I visualize Snape like a thin, sad, vulnerable man in my head, I cannot deny that artists who draw him like a powerful, angered, dangerous, strong man can ring a bell all the same. What says "Snape" to me can be so different and at the same time so rare. And there is also this question of the artist's style, blending with the subject of the artwork. If they can convey their unique style in the portrait, without failing to depict a more universal Snape... I feel like I'll never catch him all. But well, a few others did, in my eyes. The most amazing? Their Snapes are not similar. That's the point... Unique and different. Recognizable and original.

Yes, I agree with you. I think that's the beauty of loving and honouring a character. Each person (they don't even have to be artist! Just, you know, fans) has a particular Snape in their minds. And are the little details each person gives him that make Snape, as a whole, someone so special.

I love your style, by the way. I absolutely adore the way you colour and the particular style of your Snape.

Your Snape is always the most distinctive. He's also the closest to how I invision Snape.

Nice portrait. It's a lot similar to the way I myself imagine Snape: harsh, with a long nose and a slightly unpleasant face - but an intense expression. And you've a very, very interesting style: I love the colours which create his dress and neck.

I like seeing a variety of interpretations of Snape, but your portraits really strike a chord with me, as the Snape I often picture in my head. Not what you would call a conventionally attractive man, but there's just something about him that commands your attention...
