He definitely should look like this and not be muscular like in some fanarts. There's no gym in Hogwarts after all.

Delicious. Is it terrible of me that I want to lick right where the light catches his ribs? Beautiful work, and I know I've commented before but, yeah, just beautiful.

I think this is one of the first shirtless Snape portraits that didnt give him the body of a football player or a 12 year old boy. Nice balance and I like how you can tell he is thin and pale.

Yes, very nice, but ...
I've seen this picture before, as the photo. Only in the photo had two boys. This is not the original picture, right? And if so, shouldn't you to give a link to the source?
perselus Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
I used a reference from Corbis, from a photograph. This is a painting, so I did all the work of painting it, and drew the face from my own head and views of Snape. I did not copy this from someone's painting. So, this is 100% mine, and I have no obligation to link it anywhere.
Glissar Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2013
Okay, good. I just wanted to be polite. But the truth is that the composition, color and posture of the body taken from this photo - [link]
Head - it's your work, I agree, but you can't argue that this work is completely original, completely yours. Even if you took the picture only as a basis, the similarities are too obvious. So say that you just "used" photo for your creative vision - is an understatement. Link to original picture does not hurt your art, because it's very nice, but it helps to avoid next collisions with bores like me.
perselus Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
It was indeed this photo, and I used it from a free site. I always use my references from there. You will find that lots of artists here use photos like that as reference and do not add links. I even have a few of my pictures that are similar to other artists who happened to use the same reference. If I come here to DeviantArt and get some artist's photograph, I will definitely ask permission and credit it to them. I don't think it hurts my art at all to show the original, I just don't see a reason to post links to references from image stock sites. And I most definitely will continue to not add them.
Glissar Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2013
I'm not the first day on this site and saw a lot of arts. I just don't understand your contribution if you just take a picture, paint a different face and say "It's Snape!" I can understand to using of the sites with ready poses for artists, anatomical atlases and photographs, of course, when it comes to your own idea. Which is not. Select the location of the figure, the anatomy construction and choosing colors - it's a tough job, but you took all the ready-made. I'm writing this because I liked this picture. But when I saw the source, I felt cheated.
In any case, it's your choice. It's just a question of honesty.
perselus Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Your point is very confusing. I don't get it, you're talking like I painted a face on the original photo, when what I did was paint the whole picture. Even if I do it exactly like it, it's still my painting, it took work and effort to do it, and I really like to make it as realistic as I can. So, if I use a live model and paint them, the surrounding and colors of the room exactly as they are, it's not my painting? Or if I paint a view exactly as it is, you will feel cheated because it's not my own creative colors and surroundings? I wanted a pose and a darker shadowy mood, I looked on the stock page and found what I wanted, the colors and everything fit with what the commissioner wanted, and I painted it. It has nothing to do with ideas, it has to do with painting and getting the results wanted. Sorry, but I only consider cheating if you copy from another painting, not when you paint what you see based on a photograph or real life. I paint different backgrounds when they don't fit, or I add characters and mix references to come up with a picture, but in the end, it's the painting that matters, and I will credit anyone I use, except for free stock images that are there to be used.

Example of Vallejo and Bell failed because they are not to take the photo on the internet to pass them off as your own art, drawing there horns and wings. These artists themselves chose nudes and engaged in professional photography. And, more importantly, the real photos were used by them to implement their fantastic ideas. And - in the real painting.
Digital art - it's computer processing. And you just drawn it in a graphics editor. PaintTool SAI, isn't? This is not an oil painting, where such work is justified. There are also genres such as hyperrealism and photorealism that have long found their place in the painting. And in the Digital art any artist, smeared photo in Photoshop, will say that he was working hard. I studied classical art, and I find it hard to explain to you the differences between borrowing and "took as a basis", but it's four big difference. If you were to use its own model, your own photo, but even this photo as a basis, it would have been in order. It's part of the process of drawing. You have taken everything. And now you say "this is all mine." When I was studying, it was called "cheating." Because the case in the photo. Look for your answer. You say that we took the photo that appealed to you in the mood. This mood was created by the author photo. The fact is that the photograph itself is anyone's artistic work. And you just assigned the work. You liked the tone, posture, color. You just liked it. And you took this. Just took it. Redraw it in a graphics editor. What else to say? The fact that you took it on a free site? And if it's free, so - no one's, you have come, have taken, and it stay yours? With mood, posture, with the work being done to you? This is your logic?
I said everything. This is a secondary job, it is not the original, because the place is quite near photo and your art to make things clear without words. Repetition the original work in any other technique - this is plagiarism. Maybe for you it's okay. I think you just do not want to admit the thought of what you are doing something wrong.
perselus Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Ok, you obviously know nothing of digital art. I don't smear photographs with a graphics editor, I draw and paint everything from scratch in a blank canvas file. I use a tablet and I don't even like to use filters or shortcuts, I paint them as a traditional picture, not to say that artists who use such filters and shortcuts are not valuable, either. Honestly, I think your disregard for digital artists as not a real painting completely offensive and ignorant. I also studied art, and traditional painting, and I have respect for all medias. I use models and references and I draw them as I want, and I'll link when I find it necessary. I'm done talking to you.
TeddyRadiator Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2013  Professional Writer
I cannot agree with you at all. The fact that you 'studied classical art' is admirable. The fact that you are haranguing another artist with increasing vitriol isn't. Perselus has every right to use anything at all as a reference point. It was a free reference point, and she felt that referencing back to it wasn't necessary or relevant. It seems you are more stressed about her not agreeing with you than with the actual point, hence the increasingly insulting posts.

She is a talent artist, and artists have been using references since the dawn of time. Does an artist have to credit every piece of fruit in a still life, or every tree in a landscape?
BreeMcGregor Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2013
Perselus is right. even great artist like Boris Vallejo, Julie Bell and Frank Frezetta use photographs in their art work. is this not then their art? the added the back ground put them in futurist places but yes the people where either professionally photographed or was taken by Julie. I read a book on Vallejo. he showed that Julie Bell would photograph the poses he wanted and he used them for his art work. yes he credited Julie but only in the books that were written about his work. he NEVER listed her as a join artist until they married and they both painted something. Vallejo and other artist in all areas do not see using a photo as stealing. I have taken many a art class and art history class and we had dived into copy right and infringement extensively and using a photo as reference, (body structure) is not dishonest. for the body is the body and Perselus is a wonderful artist. I can go on and recite the verse on the legality of it but if she is right and she got it from a free stock sight then she is her perfect right to use the photo as a reference in a painting.
