Young and Hopeful by Vizen Young and Hopeful by Vizen
The project was so old that it's a miracle I submit something finally. The faces didn't have the same resolution, were blurred, etc - a nightmare again.

And, of course, the pic was supposed to illustrate that bright quote by Sirius in OoP :
'The world isn't split into good people and Death Eaters'.

Because, you know, I really like how Sirius says very clever and subtle things, sometimes . He has such a talent at putting his own theories into practice, especially when he speaks about his young brother and his old classmate.

The one on the right side was supposed to look like the model Isaiah Garnica. But don't let me alone with my tablet, when I'm in a bad mood.
:confused:

Severus and Regulus belong to JKR. This woman is so lucky.

The name alone makes me want to cry. XP and then... AHH Regulus. I love him so much. His eyes are fantastic, there's so much emotion in them.

Snape. Only thing that needs to be said. :P

Difficult pic, this one. They're not easy to draw. I'm unhappy with Snape but Regulus turned out to be quite in character from my point of view, finally. I'm glad you like it. Thank you.

I love Regulus here. He was an easy one. I mean, I haven't had difficulties with him and I think he's pretty Regulus for me. Severus, on the other hand... I'm not satisfied with him. I like the quite innocent look he has, the way he is still a child in this body, but he is not immediately recognizable as Severus to me, and it's a new frustration! :)

I like your Regulus too, he's quite close to what I imagined. I wish we knew more about him.
What is it about Severus that you don't find recognisable? Just the personal feeling you get from the picture, compared to the one in your head? Well, I know what it is to be harsh one oneself :). Hard to be satisfied. I like your Severus here a lot though. To me it feels as though he hasn't quite mastered his facade yet, despite the fact that he wants to appear completely self confident and in control. Well, reading into it maybe :).

Beautiful.

Sirius is quite an honest guy, and thoughtful in his way, but childish, reckless and utterly blind to his own prejudices.

Thank you.

I finally just had to fav this. I love these two slytherins.

I think you've captured them beautifully. They look like they're tired of life. They went through too much and died too young :(

I'd say he's in his 7th year, or his very first moments as a young Death Eater.

Gorgeous work. And I did love that qoute, as well. :) I love both these beautiful boys, and you did a great job of capturing their youth and personalities. However, I really miss your original work! Your digital is just as good, but I miss the traditional. :)

Hello ! Thank you :)

I don't have any traditional work in my gallery, except the 2 very first deviations : [link] and [link] were made on paper.

Maybe you just prefered when I paint with more strokes?

Oh, really?! I thought most of your early stuff was traditional. My mistake! :blush: Yeah, I like the heavy strokes, it fits Sev's heavy heart. :) But this is equally gorgeous, really - I love all your work.

Very nice Bea. I would make Sirius a bit taller than Snape, he looks a bit small, maybe it`s the perspective...in POA it is mentioned he was taller (He must be SUPER TALL because to me Snape is a tall guy!) *lol*

Good work!

:slow: Sorry!!!

And btw, are they "dead"? Snape has blood in his neck??? And Regulus looks so pale??? Or maybe some artistic touch? It is meaningfull if so... very!!!

Vizen Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2009
Well, I should write it's Reg. You're the 4th people who is mistaken. Well, it means that the two brothers have something in common, so, that's good in a sense.

This pic was such a desaster...I started with the wrong brushes, Sev was all blurred, when Reg was made in hard brushes. That was the first problem. The second one was that I had in mind to suggest how they will die. They were young, ambitious, bright with a promising future. And they had no life. But then in the process, Regulus's face became very morbid (and too green), and Snape was all bleeding...Then I stopped it and undid the dark effect as I could do. But some of it remains. I could repaint over, but, well, I think that finally I will stop here

So, they are not dead, but they are ready to live their life - Sev in sorrow and bitterness, Reg in the disgust of all in what he believed, with those horrible deaths they had ahead of them.

I undestand now! Thanks for taking a moment to tell me more about this painting, because I think all your art has some meaning, and Snape`s blood in the neck was an indicator of it!

:hug: I think it`s fine like this!!! (I don`t see any blur)! Again good job!

So which one is "Young" and which one is "Hopefull"? :giggle: I think it's cool how you made it look like one of those candid shots you see in a yearbook or similar. Two people who didn't want to pose or smile let alone be pictured together :thumbsup:

I thought about 'Youth Club' for the title... :) Well, they are young, but not with a promising future...That's the ironic meaning of the title. And you saw the idea of the pic. Both are annoyed where they are with the people around.

Я тоже было сначала подумала, что справа - Сириус, потом удивилась, что они вместе и что он ниже Северуса, потом поняла, что это Рег. Но в нем действительно есть что-то общее с тем, как ты рисуешь Сириуса.
А у Северуса подбит правый глаз? :) Или это просто художественный эффект?

Poor Severus, daje ne predstavljaesh, chto bylo do etogo. Tak je s Regulusom. Ja hotela pokazyvat', kak oni budut umerat'... tak, chto kartina byla sovsem strashna, mrachna i nezdorova. Tolko, litso u Regulusa stalo byt' slishkom zelenym, i ja peredumala. A u Severusa byl takoi vid, da, pravda, kak budto sovsem podbityi. No togda ja poshla nazad, no podumala, chto glaz u nego takoi ostanetsia. Pust budet - to potomu, chto ego kto-to udaril, ili potomu, chto on nezdorovyi i nezchastnyi.

ух ты, интересно, какая была композиция - умирали-то они в разных местах и в другом возрасте... Да, бедный Северус... и на шее до сих пор видно красное, видимо, там, где в другом варианте кровь была.

They both look so lonely ((( Regulus also looks diffident and shy, but Snape is determined and knows for sure what he wants. Brilliant work, really, really like it.

yes, quite an old WIP actually. It's very hard to rework on something old, because the way you paint has changed, and you don't remember how you started the pic first... :)
but well, finally I submitted it !!! *relieved*

Very nice, especially for an older work!

Though...if I might be bold to say so...I noticed that most of your HP pics are very dark in tone...I;m talking color, not necessarily mood. I would love to see a bright, colorful HP pic from you. :grin: Consider this a challenge...or an audacious request. Either way. :XD:
