"Look, Sev!" by JosieCarioca "Look, Sev!" by JosieCarioca
"Look, Sev! A ______________!" (fill in the blank ;P)

Anyways, another thing I owed myself for the longest time... A Severus x Lily fanart. Im not a big fan of Lily to be honest (she never got enough character development for me to have a solid opinion on her), but as a Snape fangirl I simply have to aknowledge that shes the reason my favorite character is everything he is...therefore shes a big part of the reasons that make me I love him, so I need to show some respect from time to time :P

So, there it is, Sev, Lily in a random summer afternon playing by the river (assuming that stinky river that crosses Cokeworth was clean when they were children :P)

This is dedicated to :iconameraucanablues: and :iconca-cha: both of whom urged me to draw some Sev x Lily

VISION: 4/5

A vivid "in-the-moment" shot. The expressions on their faces reflect how I imagine their friendship to be, Lily is vivacious and bright and Severus enjoys being around her, but reacts calmly and takes a while to smile. The body language really brings that to focus. 

ORIGINALITY: 3/5

The focus of the image is what sets it apart from similar scenes. Lily is the focus, despite the action being her pointing across the lake. It is a little off-putting - if your intention was to focus on something across from the lake - that Severus is looking at the center of the picture at Lily and the viewer rather than what Lily is saying. 

TECHNIQUE: 4.5/5

Focus Point:  The eye of the viewer is drawn to Lily's expression of excitement and follows her pointing finger. Although in character, Severus' line of sight being on Lily distracts from the moment and removes him from the action. If you were to re-draw this or do a similar scene I'd suggest both characters should look in the same direction - even though Lily's eyes are visible to the reader they still focus on a different area than Severus.

Proportion: Perhaps the biggest strength of your piece. Your drawing style is very unique, and it's refreshing to see proportionate bodies. Although, it's distracting that Severus has no nipples (a detail I only noticed on this re-view. 

Color Contrast/Compliment:  Another strength is the way colors work together to form the atmosphere of the scene. blending to accent the light. 

IMPACT: 4/5

When I first saw your drawing I considered asking if I could use it as a cover image for my fanficiton (but ultimately went with another one). This is  a really nostalgic scene to me, and i really enjoy it and it makes me happy.

*griin* well Lily is just the woman where you can do a lot of interpretation isn't it but since Harry was described to be just like her, I think she was a wonderful, strong character with many flaws. *smile* (and don't we all know that Girls with flaws in books always get all the hate, while it makes man always kinda sexy) Thank you thank you that you drew the two of them sweetie that was a real big surprise and is very lovely indeed.

I still think that Sev looks way to innocent and not enough... neglected. He reminds me a lot of the little boy in the movies, just a bit too handsome ^^ And of course he needs to wear green boxer XP I personally think your Evelyn/ sev pics are a bit more hearty and lovely, I guess because you like the two more together than Snily... still you drew it and it makes me kinda happy

Actually I must confess I have a hard time drawing neglected looking children(personal reasons, it just doesnt come easily to me)...I did try to add a few details that would make Sev look skinnier and less "healthy" than Lily(his arms and legs are thinner than hers, he doesnt have cheeks as full, his elbow and wrist are about the same thickness and I tried to shade his torso so you could see his ribs a bit...) but granted I did keep it all very subtle(maybe too subtle ;P)...and his face came out a bit too cute, thats true ^^;

I do have to do some penance here: I indeed take more enjoyment from drawing Sev x Lyn...not simply a matter of prefering them together but more of a matter of them being a couple whose dynamics Im more confortable with. Is not just because I created Evelyn(though it plays a HUGE part in it, is always easier to work with material that you invented than with canon, where everything is pretty much given and you have some more rigid restraints...and of course any author will love his/her own creation), but more because Severus in my Sev x Lyn pictures and writings is the adult Severus, with all the decades of bagage he carries. To work with that character and try to insert him into an adult relationship with another character who doesnt share this bagagge is more interesting to me than the Sev x Lilly childhood/adolescence drama. Just a matter of storytelling preference.:D

But in any case Im glad to know it was a worthy attempt and that, granted a few completely understandable "buts", you seem to have liked it. Actually I plan to do more Lily x Sev in the future(lets see if practice makes perfect ;)) So I hope you enjoy the next ones

"A doe and her fawn! Across the bank!" Very cute. I love the canon friendship that these two have (not a Snily shipper). Lily is one of my favorites. I credit her with giving Severus the much needed feeling of being cared about and paid attention to, something which his parents inexcusably neglected.

Oh, that cannot be the river in Cokeworth. It would eat away his feet in minutes! XD

:rofl: Maybe thats the river before it enters Cokeworth, Im sure it starts to get dirty once it crosses the city ;)

Thank you very much! All the reasosn you pointed out are precisely the same reasons I deeply respect Lily as a character, even though Im not her fan.

And Im going with your version: a doe and her fawn acrosss the bank! Lovely :love:
