Severus Snape 7th year for RosaZaira by JosieCarioca Severus Snape 7th year for RosaZaira by JosieCarioca
Belated birthday gift for :iconrosazaira:

She asked me for a Severus Snape picture and gave me the freedom to do anything I wanted. So I looked around her gallery and found this [link] , which proved to be the perfect inspiration! :love:

Yay for smoking Snape(anybody who read my fics knows how much I love the idea of a chain-smoking, nervous wreck Sev :XD:), pictured here on his 7th Hogwarts year...yeah, in my mind Severus started smoking at an early age and often hid from the teachers in between classes to smoke. With how his childhood and young years went, not suprising he´d develop a lot of unhealthy habits....

And YAY! I DIDN´T SCREW UP WITH THE INK!!!!:w00t::boogie:(Not too much at least :blush:)

Materials: ink+artist pen+ gimp (:iconana-wandmaker:´s contest left me all excited about traditional art :D)

He looks so debonair and nonchalant here. I keep seeing canon!Sherlock Holmes in his features: the aquiline nose, the angular face, the heavy brow, the cigarette held with insouciance...

I adore him too. And he and Severus do share many likenesses. In fact, I recently participated in a podcast comparing the two, so maybe that's why I immediately saw the connection in your art. :-)

Great. I like smoking Snape. In my fanfictions he is smoker and even worse :D I also imagine, that Severus had to start smoking at very early age.

He completely fits the bill for a smoker and even a substance abuser (Helooo, potions master! ;)) His childhoo and teen years are pretty much a blueprint for it. Not only that but being raised among muggles and growing up in the 60s/70s, smoking is simply in character. In my fics he smokes, drinks a lot (but not to the point of getting wasted...just your usual Mancunian drinking :XD:) and, since he survived Nagini´s attack with some horrific wounds, he gets mildly hooked on pain-killer-potions. Poor Sev, can´t catch a break :tears:

SQQQUUUUEEEE!!!! OHMYGOSH! <3 <3 <3 <3 I love it!!!!! :D I can't get past how amazing and beautiful this is!!
Yup, Seveus has always been a smoker in my mind. I can imagine him lurking about the empty corridors and hanging out windows for a quickie. He had a lot on his mind after all! Poor Snape :(
NOPE! You certainly did NOT screw up on the ink. It looks fantastic!
THANKYOU!!!! <3
(I'm really digging his eyebows!)

OMG!*jumps up and down* :glomp: :love: I´m SO HAPPY you like it!!! I should thank you for inspiring me to do something traditional, with the ink and all. Been wanting to do it since I saw your contest entry :D This was the least I could do for a friend and one of my most loyal watchers :hug:

Smoking Sev...does seem logical...with his personality and issues...also, growing up in the 60s-70s (people often forget that not only was he raised among muggles, the time period he grew up in would provide for some quirks, smoking among them)

Hehe, no problem! Sometimes I feel traditional is the best way to do it! (That is until you completely muck up and release there's no undo button in real life :D )

Aw Shucks <3 :)

Yup, pretty rock and roll 'don't give a shit' time period. :)

Hmm...maybe it's the black, white and grey palette, maybe the air of diffidence, certainly the cigarette, but he looks like an actor in one of those French films from the sixties and seventies! Channeling Alain Delon? [link]

You know I like the idea of the Marauder generation having a 60s-70s, nouvelle vague, groovy, swinggin London vibe about them. And Sev would certainly be the "dark, non-conformist, intelectual" of the lot, the punk rock/psychedelia to the Marauders/Lily rock-a-billy/disco/pop/Brit Invasion :P...which IS kinda Frenchy :XD: So I guess there was indeed a certain influence...AND OMG ALAIN DELON! :faint: *dies*

That's really odd. I pictured teenaged Severus to be a smoker also. But mostly because he's clearly not immune to peer pressure.

Not only that, but teenagers with issues often resort to smoking, drinking and drugs to cope. I do see Severus as being on the edge all the time, almost to the point of being neurotic, so smoking fits with him... and smoking is a habit tha is often seen as glamourous so for a not well adjusted kid who was obvious ambition and had some selesteem issues, it does seem like something he´d do, just to "look cool"

Yeah his character is rather interesting to me. I think he would be immensely insecure. It was nice to get a deeper glimpse into his humanity in the latter portion of the series.

I'm sure Ezsmarelda right then would say something along the lines of "Gimme that goddamn cigarette!" if she wasn't still pissed at him over *SPOILERS* I can say no more
