To VIZEN by Expell-HUN To VIZEN by Expell-HUN
A late birthday gift to :iconvizen: who would rather escape from all the birthday celebrations and getting a year older.

Though I was joking with her that she will get a Pink Potter Superportrait, but I don't want her to have bad dreams, so I painted you, my dear friend, our beloved Professor (not that I can paint anyone else unless you switched to glossy vampires) who doesn't like the spotlight just as you do. He is busy leaving to his peaceful basement before anyone notices. ;-)

I hope you don't mind I designed him new outfit - it was influenced by retroscopefashions.com.


:wave: :wave: :wave:


Credits:
- Severus Snape still belongs to lucky woman JKR
- I used a texture from :iconregularjane: 's "Grungey Bokeh Pack"

Gorgeous work - the shading beneath the eyes going into the cheekbone is especially well done (I have trouble with this area) I'm loving this profile, the way you chose the composition adds interest, and he's really quite 'there'. Very commanding image.

Thank you! I had a great inspiration, I am a movie trailer addict (I collect the best in my youtube account and watch them on and on :blushes: My husband always makes fun of me that I am the only one in the cinema who loves the trailers before the movie begins :D ). Despite the fact, Brody is kind of a Snape character, I think the trailer of The Pianist with its 1 min 17 sec, so very short length is an outstanding, beautiful, heartbreaking trailer.

I also collect the best fanmade trailers and I just found this: [link] The Pianist with Gary Jules 'Mad World': total :heart: :love:

I have never heard this song, but it had helped and inspired me very much along the painting! Great song, great message.

Do you need the song itself? ('mad world' w/Gay Jules) I have it,& can send you an mp3 over email . . . . .

Well, I looove this Snape :) - and love the composition - nonsymmetric position of the figure, some inner movement in it, emphasis on dark and light in the different parts of the picture. Watching your account almost from the beginning (I don't meen only the official watch, but even before I got my own account here) I see you made a tremendous progress both in the interpretation of the image and in drawing skills. But in your digital works I really miss what I regarded one of the most strong qualities of your style - extraindividual use of the textures - paper, materials (media? - I mean watercolour, acryl, etc.), noticeable strokes (I hope you understand what I'm trying to say, I really hate my English :( ) - smth like this [link] or [link] or even [link] And on the contrary, digital media gives to to the pic's surface some smoothness when everything jently flows into one another - in its extreme case it makes a sort of photography effect... and the use of patterns/brushes (leaves, snowflakes, light spots, etc.)- to my opinion - can nearly ruin a best picture... I hope you won't be offended becouse there's some criticism in my words, I'd like it vice versa to be pleasant that people really care about your creative work, watch it closely and analyze it! :hug:

my dear Esperansa, I am not offended at all :hug: Painting digital is much easier I think that is why people leave the traditional media so easy where you ruin one thing and the painting is gone, you cannot fix it, also you can save time with brushes and patterns, but on the other hand you can go into very small details which is a challenge, too - though many times only the artist knows about the freckles on a nose, because it is not noticable by viewing the pic.
I still like traditional media much more (I mean I have only traditional artworks on my walls in my house, not even a reprint), because I found them more beautiful, more natural, exactly what you said: the strikes, the texture and even the smell of an oil painting if I bend closer.
I really hope I can do more traditional painting in the future you are right with your post and I am thankful for paying attention to me, because I have to tell you I did not notice at all that in the last year I had done like 3 hand-made and 80 digital works :((((

That's really lovely. Canon Snape probably wears something like a monk's robe when teaching, but I could see him wearing something this Goth as his dress-robes or if he was venturing into the Muggle world. It would appeal to his sense of the dramatic.

I'm going to be making some Snape buttons to give away at Infinitus, sort of like I did with Sev/Lily buttons last year at Azkatraz... I would love to use this one on some of them if that would be okay with you both, Maja, Bea?

First I wanted to paint a scene where Snape unexpectedly appears in her room to take her away with a sarcastic remark, but I am afraid her husband wouldn't be too happy a big bat has kidnapped his wife :D
