+ Bleak December + by belle-macabre + Bleak December + by belle-macabre
The young Severus pondering over a many quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore ;)

Yet another Snape collaboration between:
- pencil sketch
- colours in Open Canvas 3

It started as an innocent colouring practice at =ellaine’s place, but she wanted to have it finished. So here we go, a couple of months later ^^’
Hope you’ll like it.
And be sure to check her version as well [link]

Severus Snape belongs to J. K. Rowling.

While he nodded nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of someone gently rapping, rapping at his dormitory door.

I liked the reference to "The Raven" as well.

Someone could write their own version of "The Raven about Snape, with Lily standing in for Lenore.

I just can't get over how amazing the lighting is on this piece!! I'm completely entranced. *U* His right hand is done impeccably well.

And the folds in his shirt, the way the light shines on it is just gorgeous.

It's the little things in this piece that really make it exceptional. Just look at the shadows of that book and bottle! How you incorporated the blue...

This piece is inspiring, truly. Great job <3~

...but what I really love is, that bottle with the vaguely-blue-glowing-whatever-it-is (I assume a potion, considering the context) -- First of all it's pretty to look at, it looks like a *magical* potion with its own luminosity, and not just some mixture of icky liquids. Secondly, its light is reflected/shadowed onto the table.

That kind of detail absolutely makes the picture. Nice work, both of you!

What I love most about this picture I believe is the atmosphere it presents. It seems peaceful, yet still contains the dark aura that has always seemed to surround Severus. And the slightly angsty feel it has, is obviously a common factor when concerning the Potions Master. It's really a very wonderful peice, and I can't help but favor it.

It's even darker and heavier in atmosphere with this coloring. It really fits the book. Severus looks very much like a person, just like he is portrayed in the later books when he's not demonized anymore.
The distinct reflection of the candles in the window disappeared, but that doesn't matter. The lighting's amazing.

Quoth the raven: Nevermore ^_^. Chociaż ostatnio po "Berenice" zadanej przez Kalagę Juniora straciłam do Edgara Alana sporo szacunku. Napisać opowieść z dreszczykiem o wybijaniu zębów trupom? Dla mnie przegięcie maksymalne.

BTW, gdzieś muszę znaleźć nasze wprawki w stylu Poe'go. Choćby po to, zeby umieścić w scraps. ^_^

Exactly. I mi sie jego opowiadania tak dosc srednio podobaja. Ravena uwielbiam, reszta jest juz troche mniej strawna (Berenice tez czytalam na amerykanskiej... a w kazdym razie usilowalam czytac XD).
Ale z creditsami! Rymy czestochowskie, ale zabawa byla przednia ;)
