Severus by HapticMimesis Severus by HapticMimesis
Well, it has been awhile. So, time for Snape! :D

(Property of JK Rowling, product of time well-wasted. Now I'm going back to homework.)

So realistic! But he doesn't look like a man in his thirties. He seems to me too much older than that. And his face is so wornout! Btw, the use of colours and shadows looks superb.

I would say this portrait is probably the truest one I've seen depicting the character JK Rowling created. Everyone seems to picture Snape as fairly attractive in some way, and I admit I do, too. However, he really isn't meant to be attractive in any way, besides his loyalty and courage. There's quite a lot of what she describes in your version and the realism of those features here is fantastic. Bravo!

I disagree. Snape is only described as ugly by those that hate him the most, and who are mostly unreliable in their interpretation of the world, namely Harry and the Marauders.

Also, if you look at old photos of Rowling's chemistry teacher, whom Snape is based off of, and you'll see a not bad looking man with dark curtain hair and a large nose.

I think the only factual thing that can be said about Snape's appearance is that he looked unkempt, had light skin and long dark hair with a pronounced nose.

All opinion of course. Regardless, your artwork is beautiful, Haptic.
