WIP 7777Kiriban Sketches by Expell-HUN WIP 7777Kiriban Sketches by Expell-HUN
I am working on my first kiriban for :iconevyheartway: who has asked me to illustrate her new chapter of her fanfiction called "The Last Secret of Dumbledore". As she has not submitted it yet I am not entitled to describe the scene she asked me to paint, but I can tell you it is a real challenge, I have many ideas. I show you some watercolour pieces from my sketchbook now how the work is going on :sun:

the nose! Snapes nose looks so perfect and it's so tender. I love how in the last panel Snape looks pained and Lily reassuring him.

very well, but I wait till she submits the chapter so I can cite her novel in the artist's comment ;-)

Oh, great work! Especially the middle one (with the hand). Seems quite different than your earlier Snapes. Keep going! :)

Thank you, Zwerg! :hug: Ah, you caught me :D yes, I am trying to find "my Snape", I think I am close now. In the beginning I was influenced by Rickman despite the fact I had a different vision of Snape in my mind. :heart:

Gyönyörű szé.p! *nagy, csillogó szemű szmájlim sajnos nincs kéznél* Nagyon tetszik, igazán! És végre megint tradicionális. (Bocsi, csak én jobban szeretem a tradicionális grafikákat :blush:)

I've always wanted to do a piece where Snape is being comforted. These are inspiring - very soulful without becoming *overly* sentimental. That would be the hardest part for me, and you've achieved a good balance here. Plus these are a pleasure to look at, especially the right panel. And where his hand is to his face. I love the line you used for his brow, shading down to the hand :heart: Awesomely done.

My point of view has changed a lot since the last (damn) HP book, now I have an almost physical need to see him being comforted, I have to admit, my heart is still bleeding. I think I need comfort more :D :giggle:

Isn't that weird? I do too. I have to have Bea :iconvizen: to remind me that he must suffer; it's for a reason . . .
One day I would like to address his grief and death; not now though.

why does he have to suffer? what is the reason? redemption? :blushes:

joeyv7 Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2009
. . . . I don't know, it may be a cultural (Western?) thing :hmm: I do think Snape typifies an excellent antihero for our current age: Hated, filled with self - loathing, but longing for a defining moment, even if it's Death, to redeem himself :hmm:

but what is the lecture, what all his suffer (many times in vain...) tell us? did he reach anything? did his life have at least a ray of light, hope? his life is totally dark, seems like a one-way-ticket to tragedy. :(

joeyv7 Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2009
. . . well . . . you're right about that; he certainly was written that way. However, if you can suspend disbelief for awhile, it's easy to see he transcended that bleak fate in us. What we do with him is just as valid as what his original creator did with him. That's only my opinion; but I do sincerely believe it.

thank you, dear Mybreathingselfagain. She writes in a very emotional and intense way and it is a shocking, truly heart breaking scene you will see... :sun: I am not satisfied I have to put more pain and unhuman dispair in his face, I am kind of tuning myself with all these sketches to reach the final version I will paint.

I have to learn how to paint tears...
...and I wish I could learn how to show trembling on canvas *sigh*

ah, I am talking too much... but I am so excited with her kiriban wish :blushes:

mybreathingselfagain Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2009
I absolutely must read her story, so far I have only glimpsed into it (=lack of time) but found it very well written. I am looking very forward to doing so..
More pain in his face? Oh, no, that will be so heartbreaking... :tears: To draw tears is really difficult, I think; which technique are you going to use? (Sorry if I am too curious, you probably don't want to anticipate!)
Trembling on canvas is maybe something reserved for the wizard, not the muggle artist? ;) But thinking of it, you might just be the former!! :sun:

I know, I have a growing list of must-read fanfictions for my holiday, too ;-)

I thought first to use watercolour pencils, but I am not sure now. you may laugh at me but it depends on the pattern I desing for Lily's dress. I have to admit I cannot resist the digital opportunity to work on miniscule details (for my own joy as noone watches it in that close anyway :rofl:), I am fond of decent embroidery on blouses, floral design... :D

No, I can perfectly well understand this "problem", I am (theoretically) also very fond of patterns, textures etc., I just never have the patience or the skills :). Acrylics would do a good job, I guess? ;)
Anyway, I am looking so forward to seeing the result and I am getting more and more jealous of this kiriban!! :D

Wonderful! They're all beautiful, but my favourite is the one on the right, the contrast between the two is great :heart:. But I also love the one with him alone, especially his hand, it looks amazing, and so much feeling in all the sketches...
Can't wait to see the final version!

I am so happy for your comment, dear Untangomas! :hug: I always have problems with Lily, I mean she became a holy angel after almost 2 decades of her death, all the memories talk about a bright, wonderful person, so I tend to draw her too unearthy... a ghostly perfection :( I have to work on it and be more brave, I think.

Küld bizonyítékot, különben lehetetlség lenne megállapítani:-) Úgy működik, hogy eljön az oldalra, látja, hogy 7777, rányom a PrintScreenre a billentyűzeten, azt átteszi Paintbe vagy más programba, elmenti jpg-ben ;-)

Vázlatokhoz azért jobb a hagyományos módszer, mert a wacom folyton arra ingerel, hogy zoomoljak, bigyerésszek a részleteken, itt javítsak, ott javítasak, holott az ötletelés-vázlat készítés - nekem - pont nem ez, ez egy zsákutca, megrekedsz egy ötletnél. Inkább vázlatfüzet, 1 szál ceruza, radír sincs, és hajrá :D

This is beyond words! But I'll try, anyway: the embrace on the left side is so romantic, with that touch of sadness that epitomizes Sev and Lily's relationship. The right-hand embrace is achingly beautiful - I can only imagine how brilliant it would look in color! Sev looks wearily attractive, while Lily looks fresh and so pretty. I love the deep sorrow, hopelessness, and emotion is Severus's every movement! You have captured his soul here, and Lily's also - quite a feat with just pencils!

:heart: You inspire me!

I love that embrace, thank you for mentioning! The only problem with it was that their faces are hidden, that is why I started to try other angles :D :D :D Their expressions are very important in her fanfiction, a crucial point I may say, so I really have to show them somehow!

I am always happy if I give you inspiration, my dear! :rose: Anytime:-)))
