"You know, sometimes I think we Sort too soon..."

Not really a spoiler. Just a little Snape because he deserves something.

Yeah. People change due to all their experiences. Like maybe some gryffindor gets all vengeful because his or her friends are laughing behind their back.
Gryffgirl Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2011
Very sad, but also quite beautiful. I love the colors and textures and his wistful pose. It looks like he's contemplating whether it is safe to go into his house. :(

Poor Snape: another scene from his crappy, unhappy youth! But very well portrayed--thank you!

One does wonder what might have been if Snape had been sorted into Griffindor.

Everything about this is magnificent! I love this picture. It's very well drawn and colored. :love:
ikaika-puuwai Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2011
The scenery and his clothes are just perfect, the picture clearly speaks of a comfortless childhood in a dreary english industrial suburb. Thank you!

I am in love with this unique drawing! It's unlike any other I've seen of Severus. The position, the detail to his clothing, his own appearance.. it's beautiful. I would love to see this as a print, because I would buy it in a heartbeat.

Love the pose and the shadowy use of color. very nice.
Chaobaby7 Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2008
Poor Severus. :( it looks like he is on the doorstep of his dreadful muggle home feeling really fed up with life. I don't blame him for feeling like this. He looks gorgeous. I just love young Severus.
sorgie Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2008

Yeah, the poor little guy really needs a lot more love and a lot less drama.
Chaobaby7 Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2008
that is certainly true. :)

Absolutely fantastic. I love it.
Your painting skills are pretty awesome.
And then there's little Severus. I like his pose. His clothes are spot on as well.
And yes! Damn right he deserves something :D
Thank you for this :) :+fav:

I never got what dumbledore meant by that?
Orlina Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2009
He meant that people change, you can't keep judging someone by who they were when they were eleven years old.
And if he were to ressort Severus he would surely be a Gryffindor for he demonstrated that he was more courageous than most.
Like Harry says in the epilogue : ''[Severus] was the bravest man I ever knew!''
janach Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I thought it was an insulting thing to say to the Head of Slytherin House, since it implied that only Gryffindors are brave. There are no brave Slytherins, then? Or Hufflepuffs? Or Ravenclaws?

Severus is as brave as a Gryffindor, as brilliant as a Ravenclaw, as loyal as a Hufflepuff, and a Slytherin through and through.
raskova Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2007

awww x-x I LOVE this! Very clever reference, too!
CaptainChants Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2007
Such a lovely image, Just want to hug him.

And I really love the way youve done the shoes : )
shadowquill Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2007
Snape is (was? oh man I miss him already) extremely brave, and Dumbledore's comment was sweet, but Snape's comment: "If you'd rather be brawny than brainy..." makes me think he might have ended up in Ravenclaw as an alternative too...

In my opinion they should just ditch that darned hat hat mix up the dorms randomly. ;) I'm not saying that groups wouldn't form naturally, I'm just saying that they wouldn't be pre-established.
sorgie Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2007
Amen to that!
karaii Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2007
Ah, I loved Albus's comment on that...makes me think, yeah? Y'know, I think Severus would've done really well in Hufflepuff, considering his undying loyalty to those he trusts O_O;;; :heart:

Beautiful painting...seriously, I need to learn how to digitally paint like that, because the results are just too cool :D

Well, I just can't add anything to what was already said. This is very good picture of him. And I love it. Thus fav.

wow--great pose :o
inisangelous Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2007
This is a great picture. I knew it was Snape the second I saw it <3
meirles Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2007
This is wonderful! Snape alone is great, but it's the background that really makes this, the way you've made everything look poverty-stricken, and Snape's clothing... perfect! <3
Randomnobody Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2007
snape was awesome... love your drawing, it has a lot of feeling in it, and his face and pose seem very lifelike. a great tribute to snape!
