To see the two pieces combined go here: [link]

Pero... ¿No es malo poner lilies en un dibujo de Snape cuando supuestamente ya se ha recuperado de su amor no correspondido...? :(

Es un poquitin complicado eso de Lily y los lirios en mi universo... Los lirios siguen siendo importantes simbolos en mi cronologia por dos razones...Una son la flor preferida de Evelyn (lirios blancos y rosas rojas son las flores que más ama) y por supuesto lo de Lily.

En mis fanfics Snape se ha recuperdao de su amor no correspondido, pero el recuerdo de Lily sigue... Snape aún se recuerda de ella y, de alguna manera, la ama, pero no como un hombre ama una mujer, sino como un recuerdo dulce de su infancia y juventud...Además sino por ella Snape jamas hubiera descubrido que es amar, asi que si puede enamorase de Evelyn y ser feliz con ella eso se debe también a Lily que lo hizo conocer que era el amor(por eso el ramo de novia de Evelyn tiene lirios blancos)

Asi que los lírios siguen siendo símbolo de Snape en mis fanfics...solo no de un Snape obssessivamente enamorado de Lily, e si de un Snape que aceptó la ausencia de Lily y rehizo su vida con un nuevo amor(aun guardando un bonito recuerdo de su primer amor)

Beautiful work and a lovely companion piece to Evelyn's portrait! I love Mucha and you've really done a great job using his style. Your Severus is a lot handsomer here than I picture him, but that is not a criticism! I really like how you worked in the lilies and snake and the Celtic emblems on his collar! :)

Thank you so much. "Borrowing" Mucha´s style wasn´t an easy task, but I´m very happy with how this turned out :D And yeah, I do tend to make Sev a tad bit on the handsome side ^^; I guess is a matter of style, and if you say it works then I can rest asured :huggle:
