Gargoyle by acatnamedeaster Gargoyle by acatnamedeaster
Unfinished ink work from a while back. I screwed up the gargoyle which is why this was abandoned but I very much liked the way Snape came out so I figured it was worth an upload. Too bad.

India ink and brushes

Thanks! I actually ended up giving this one away to friend, but I did end up redoing it.

As others have already mentioned, I love Snape's pose and dynamism in this pic.

This is so stunning! I am such a fan of your work, and this is breathtaking. All the movement and drama - it almost has its own soundtrack!

I like it. I assume he's resting briefly on the castle roof while on one of his flying patrols of the grounds during his year as Headmaster. Always on the watch for threats to students. I love flying Sev. :floating:

Thanks! I imagine that he would take little excursions just to get some peace, life in his last year must have been completely dreadful.

Thanks! I always think of Snape as a very active character, it's really only film!Snape who comes across as very passive.

Interesting - yes, I see him as a more physically active man, too. I can't really remember one time that the movie version did anything very vital, but I never paid much attention :shrug:

I only watched the movies for the most part when they came out on DVD and honestly, Snape comes across as being heavily drugged most of the time. Like Dumbledore had been feeding him a steady diet of quaaludes in his morning tea. :P I really can't stand film!Snape.

I hear you. I thought when I looked at the last one, I'd laugh, as he looks like a large kabuki actor in the all the makeup and mediocre digital effects. But it was just depressing :(

Yeah, it was just pathetic really. I know they were limited for time with the films but Snape got so short shrifted he wasn't the same character. I'm glad I had no investment in the movies so I was only mildly disappointed with that last one.
