Spinner's End, Apparate by HapticMimesis Spinner's End, Apparate by HapticMimesis
For the Spinner's End second challenge. I went with the concept of apparation. I was particularly struck by the unpleasant physical sensations from apparation, though that seems standard for most magical things (ie, polyjuice potion, Burtie Botts Every Flavor Beans, *all* of Fred and George's inventions...ha ha!) I also liked how apparation is not actually instantaneous. It's a process, and a dangerous one at that. (Splinching! Ack!) So, I tried to convey that feeling in this picture, where Snape is apparating home to Spinner's End, landing in a deserted alley on the far side of town. Remember, Destination, Determination, Deliberation!

Of course, everything about this belongs to the lovely Mrs. Rowling.

:aww: Thank you! I don't really know. The idea just intrigued me. And I ran across this lovely double-exposed piece of photography that heavily inspired it. :)

Gorgeously atmospheric and evocative. I love the way you highlight just certain features, and leave the rest up to our murky imaginations. Just stunning!

I really love how you have painted this. It's gorgeous! Also, I love how you've gotten down how dangeorus it is transporting your body, I get that feeling with the bones in the clearer image of him, like it would be so easy to just misplace a part of you if you lost concentration. That probably didn't make sense, but I think this is amazing =D

Thank you very much! :) You make perfect sense. "Splinching" is such a danger, that children are not legally allowed to perform it. I'm glad the sense of danger came through! :D

Thanks! I love the idea of apparition, so much nicer than taking a train, plane or car (unless said car flies, maybe!). And I don't imagine Snape enjoyed riding brooms, much, so apparition seemed to suit him. :)

Wow, this is really great! I love how you can see bones and muscle, it gives really physical feeling to it. It's like you can see the body struggling to keep together.
