Through Lily's eyes by frodobolson72 Through Lily's eyes by frodobolson72
"She had a way of seeing the beauty in others even, and most specially, when that person could not se it in themselves..."
(Remus Lupin to Harry in "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban")

This is how Lily saw Severus when they were best friends.

I used some brushes by:

And some textures by :iconjaxxys-stock:

He looks great. I love the quote you had to it it fit well
ariodante28 Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2011
This is managed to show his feelings towards Lily, yet there are still traces of his darker self. I especially like how there is both happiness & resignation in his expression.
(Funny. We know that young Snape was unkempt & awkward, yet I don't ever recall reading that he was supposed to be ugly. Don't know why people complain about making him look handsome. :XD: )

Beautiful, just beautiful. His expression is breath-taking. Everything about it is amazing. Awesome job on this, probably one of if not the best I have seen of Snape.

Awww Thats How I've Always Seen Severus.
He is a Beautiful Person.
woodfaery Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2009
You've been featured in my Harry Potter journal![link]
Anesther Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2009
Oh... My... God...

He's... BEAUTIFUL! This is how he would look in real life! There's such a genuine spark in his eyes, and you really feel like you're Lily since she's the only one he would express himself to.

Can I also say that I'm jealous of your artistic skill? If I tried doing something like that, it'd take me, what, the rest of my life--and it still wouldn't look as amazing as this. XD


Addicted to fictional characters--and proud of it.

Oh i really like that. Bravo
complex-simplicities Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2008
He's so beautiful.

I always loved Snape, because everyone seemed to hate him for no good reason.
MiatoSakura-chan Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2008
Una versión totalmente creíble de Severus Snape...
y la cita en la descripción complementa perfectamente la imagen :D

Hiciste palpitar mi corazón de la emoción, porque se siente el amor con que lily lo ve :heart:
MiatoSakura-chan Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2008
Ahora que volví a ver la imagen, me di cuenta por que su cara se me hacía tan familiar, se parece mucho a mi mejor amigo.
Tiene la misma mirada, la misma nariz, los labios finos y yo lo veo con mucho cariño :D la diferencia es que es más moreno y más bajo (incluso más que yo, que soy alta) :D Que vivan las narices aguileñas :dance:

No la culpo, si yo hubiese visto a Severus de esa manera, lo pensaba dos veces antes de casarme con James. :giggle:
chiburaska Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2008

play-it-snufkin Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2008
That's such a wonderful idea... I love how it turned out, it seems true to his character, and you fit so much kindness into his eyes. :)
glitched18x Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2008
This is just amazing! Wow.
freeburgfreak Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2008
All I can say is that he looks like James May off Top Gear! XD Like... a young version... Thats my first thought when I saw this picture XD
frodobolson72 Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2008
Who is James May?:confused:
freeburgfreak Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2008
LOL. He's a TV Presenter on a British car show called Top Gear. [link]

Chaobaby7 Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2007
I cannot believe I've not faved this dreamy, lovely and romantic Severus before, I saw him on facebook thats it. Oh isn't he lovely and those languid, deep, sad eyes. I love Snape:heart:

Zeldarocks Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2007
i know this is Snape, but this is pretty much how i pictured teen Lupin. v.v.v good pic, it must have taken you ages
Naeruve Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2007
Amazing...just beautiful. You should definately draw a Tom Riddle!!! Ohhh could you please, please do an all bad boys one? Tom, Draco, Severus, and...well you could throw in Sirius for good measure. He was a bad boy after all!! Hotness all over!
frodobolson72 Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2007
I've already done a portrait of Draco here: [link]
And I plan a Tom Riddle one...:plotting:
MsBreaggats Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2007

ghost-eye Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2007
Lovely picture, you've done an really great job with the expression & facial anatomy - & if only Severus could have seen himself like that...
kaburenjou Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2007
imaginate al snape asi XD
me gusta mucho como dibujas
frodobolson72 Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2007
Gracia,wapa!Me alegro de que te guste.:hug:
Ten en cuenta que se le ve a través de la mirada de Lily, que quería Snape, y cuando se quiere de verdad a alguien no puede parecernos feo o desgradable.
Si le hubiera pintado a través de los ojos de James, pues seguramente tendría que haberle dibujado parecido al feo de los hermanos Calatrava ;P :XD:
SuperSilkie Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2007  Hobbyist General Artist
Dude. Awesome! I love Lily's character...she loved Snape even though he didn't love's so true and pure...:heart:

I reckon she fell for the nose. Its a hot nose.
frodobolson72 Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2007
I love men with big noses. They're sexy :drool:
sesame-cracker Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2007
Then you'd like them jewish. Is Snape jewish?
frodobolson72 Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2007
It's quite funny, but we had a discussion on my Facebook Snape fan group about Snape ethnical origins and many people said that they believed Snape was jewish because of his physical appearance.
