When the world gets me down... by TinyQ When the world gets me down... by TinyQ
Omi gosh! Snape/Lily art?! Well, I do think that it is very possible. Snape hates Harry, and always hated James. Lily defended Snape from James, yet he fought her off. We know that Lily and James hook up in their 7th year, which leaves about 2 years in which Snape and Lily could get together. It would be one of those tragic romances because we all know who Lily ends up with in the end, and Harry is a permanent mark of Snape's defeat to James, thus why he hates Harry so much... Uh yah, that all just spilled out of my head. Sorry.

Anyhoo, I am very very happy with the colouring of this. It has this simple aura that I am in love with, and hope I can do more of. I am not so happy with the colour of Lily's socks though, but that's ok. I am not so fond of Lily herself either, though I do like her in a way as well. I don't think I should have used the beginnings of her sketch in Oddworld, because now I like that version a whole lot better, though there really is nothing terribly wrong with this one. Gah. I am quite pleased with myself that I made her not look like Ginny though. Yay! The position itself was inspired by my friend sitting on me like that, though as to why he did I still don't know. Oh well, it was stuck in my head and I had to draw it. I was going to do a background, but I got lazy and couldn't think of a decent one. So it stays as is. Blah.

Brilliant prediction, you got it right on the mark! Really gorgeous work. :}

Yes! It's interesting how in canon this picture is considering when you created it.

In canon: I think Lily is sitting on her BFF's lap giving the Marauders a "Don't mess with me and Sev" look. Snape is trying really hard to cover certain other, um, feelings that would be more obvious if he were sitting in a slightly different position. He's got a "Merlin, I love her so much, I'll kill anyone who tries to hurt her" look on his face.

In my own fangirl imagination: Sev and Lily are openly a couple and make lots of wild passionate love and potions together and then live happily ever after.

Yeah, but there wouldn't be any Harry Potter then so... hmm.

I'm so in love with this piece, it got so clean lines yet it's filled with shadows and the calm situation is just filled with life! Wonderful!

I agree! Didn't JKR say we were going to learn something important about Lily in book 7, according to Mugglenet: [link]

It is very possible that this is what she was referring to...

but maybe not...

This is really well done. I think you did a wonderful job on the highlights of the skin, hair and clothes. Their eyes (especially hers) just stand out from the screen. I really dig those tall socks. Go 1976!

Yay! Snape/Lily fanart! They look awesome. Great colors and lineart! :)

Excellent. I love their expressions. Sev/Lily pics always make me cry.:( It's my favourite 'ship'.(If it can even be called that.)

Good job.

OMG!!! I had no idea who drew this xcellent pic till I followed a link from katiescarlet's [link] (a Snape/Lily site), looked thru your pics, and found this! I luv ur art. The one you did of Remus and Tonks all shippy- marvelous, dahling. I ship them and was overjoyed at it becoming canon. Keep up the fantastic work!

I was happy too when I read that bit. =p Glad you like my art, however round about your way of finding it was. :D

OTP! XD Snape/Lily is an instant +fav for me, but this is especially awesome. His expression is great, like "I know she's not mine to keep, but let me enjoy this moment anyway..." Great job.

Oh I have seen this picture on AA, may have even commented, I am not particuarly sure. Ho hum.

I love Lily's and Severus' expression they both have a kind of longing in their eyes...maybe a star-crossed lovers thing going on? I don't know, 'cause if I did my name would be JK Rowling and it's not. Anyhoo, jeez I can babble, I am rather fond of Snape's nose and his shoes, don't ask why 'cause I couldn't give you an answer but they do look rather cool. I also love Lily's eyes, hair and feet. Her eyes look so intense, like they're really trying to put a message across and her is just beautiful 'cause I said so.

Anyways, I shall be silent...

So sad :( I do believe something similar could have happened, and that in the end Snape's racial beliefs tore them apart. Ah, tragic romances....

Blue-Eyed-Snidget Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2005
Oops, I forgot to tell you which hand I was talking about! Heehee ^_^ I meant the one on Lily's legs.
Blue-Eyed-Snidget Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2005
*sigh* I feel so bad for them... it just makes me want to cry... ;_; But this pic is fantastic. I love the rich color of Lily's hair and Snape's expression. I am also in love with Lily's legs. They are TOO perfectly drawn! Snape's hand looks a bit small, though, that could just be the angle it's drawn in.

that's exactly like my Lily/Sev theory! I love Snape, it's just so hard for me not to love him. :love: lol! well, this is awesome, I always thought it would be interesting if they had gotten together instead of Lily and James who's kinda a total jerk.... in my opinion...
great pic!
Citylove05 Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2005
oh....sad. I really like this one. The emotional quality is really nice. The pose is so simple but really tells a lot about the relationship. Personally I really like Lily in this one... shes very pretty, a bit older, and pretty much how I pictured her. I love her skirt too! It looks fabulous and the folds are so perfect!!! Snape looks so sad I almost feel sorry for him!!! And his knees are amazing *shakes head* not fair I say...not fair. Just curious...Is Is this done with markers and colored pencils? Again, great work.

:love: Dani
TinyQ Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2005   Traditional Artist
Yah, I used markers on all of it, but used pencil crayons on the skin and hair. I don't trust myself yet to get the highlights properly, and I don't own any skin coloured markers. :(

I've always thought they'd hook up some point of time;
The poses are so aweome-I especially like how you can tell how Snape is putting his cheek on Lily's back. :D
EmmaDilemma Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2005
I love the pose and the color of lily's hair! its so rich! The pose expressions are great too! Good theories you have going there!
scarlettmcknight Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2005
I hate Snape/Lily together but I love the way you colored it and I love Lily's hair. I guess its cause I'm a big Snape fan. LOL! I say poopy alot too.
