Professor by perselus Professor by perselus
I wanted a picture for my LJ that looked like a very close to canon Severus, and like a traditional painting.

For reference, I used the painting Saint Paul Writing His Epistles by Valentin de Boulogne, because it was the best pose for what I had in mind, and it turned out quite close to what I wanted.

Thanks to ~KHames for finding the artist's name. ;)

There are so many things that I adore about this painting. The reference to classical art, the parchment and open book on his desk, his robes and how he is refilling his writing quill. I also like the coloring technique you applied here. I know this is several years old but being the first time seeing this, I had to leave you a comment on why this has become one of my favorite pieces of Severus Snape.

I love the tones in this one and I can certainly see the influences of the classical references!

I can imagine him saying next: "Well, what is your reason for bothering me while I'm working, Miss Granger ?" :D

So gorgeous!

I have seen this picture everywhere--always credited to you of course--but I never knew where to find the original to sing it's praises to you personally!

This is great because you're right, this is EXACTLY what he should look like, determined, a tad menacing and not overly handsome, but still...dignified...ya know? Anyway, I really, really love this pic!

I love the canon Snape ( not sure why they call it canon?) but the scary, dark Snape that isn't a foppish pretty boy is wonderful, I've been trying to make my Snapes less pretty. This is a really good picture, dark and dramatic.

Wonderful! I love the expression on his face- tired? Disdainful? Just being him? He he. Wonderful, wonderful.

Great pose too. :D

You've captured him so well, it really annoys me when fangirls make him look really pretty because he's not meant to be and that's part of the attraction!
Fantastic painting!
