Deathly Hallows Spoiler by Helen-M Deathly Hallows Spoiler by Helen-M
I KNEEWW Snape loved Lily! This scene, in which the young Snape spies on young Lily (look behind tree!), just before their first meeting, is one that definitely caught my imagination- of all the spectacular scenarios in DH I could have attempted, I sketched this first. My conviction that his agreed killing of Dumbledore, etc etc would come out never wavered, although it came close once or twice. He rules, and I think his death was sooo sad... I love that Harry calls his son Albus Severus Potter, who would have guessed when reading HBP or similar...

Perspective problems! Could have been worse, though. Coloured pencil and biro (WISH I had one of those amazing digital art programmes), but ever so slightly manipulated on Paint, that awful pixellated doodling thing. That's why her eyes are creepy. But hey, had to put tis up in deviations rather than scraps cos i want to get my literary scraps off my recent deviations panel.

Edit: The pic of her in muggle school uniform is my own interpretation- it set the pic friml in Lily's pre-howarts days and gave me a nice excuse to draw a floaty skirt. :)

I love this! You captured the scene perfectly.

I think a lot of people are going to start resenting James Potter after The Prince's Tale. ^^; How can anyone NOT have wanted Lily to be with Snape after that? Actually, it's one of the only couplings I like that actually had some chance of happening in the HP series.

Yeah, I know we wouldn't have Harry without James x Lily, but would that be such a bad thing?? :D Well, I spose it WOULD probably be up to Neville to save the world (uh oh)...

very nicely done - good anatomy and foreshortening going on there! i loved that scene too - but my favourite bit had to be when dumbledore was talking to snape 'severus, after all these years?' 'always'. brought a tear to my eye!

Thanks! I wasn't nearly as thrilled over the Ron/Hermione kiss as what Harry saw in the Pensieve, personally. Ron had REALLY been annoying me, I was hoping Hermione would go off him, but that wouldn't happen, naturally. Loadsa people seem to have drawn that scene, though.

Yay Lily! And yay Snape! I totally knew he wasn't evil...after all, why would he have held back whilst escaping in the sixth book? Harry was definitely pissing him off...
Lmao. Good job! I loved this scene in the book.

Yay, what a nice piece of art! :clap: I imaged it just like that, only mirror-flipped. :D I wasn't surprised at all coz S+L pictures and stories were everywhere around the net..
And I also love the fact Harry named his son after him, who would have said? If you told Harry 1 year ago, he would call you mental. :D

:iconhelen-m:
Helen-M Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2007
Thank you! Yeah, I guess S+L is a bit like the great "Harry is a Horcrux" lobby- a widespread belief, but in their case I was surprised to see they were correct! Oh yes!

Rowling herself said, "lots of pages out there have got it right". Today though, I'd rather not seen those, I would have loved the surprise. :) I didn't believe the "Harry Horcrux" much.
