I actually really like the movie Snape, too. (I see the movies and the books as two different things)
But there was one thing I really didn't get...
There is this poster with Alan Rickman and it looks gorgeous
, but I think not very snape-ish - way too 'commonly handsome' for my taste - but I could've lived with that. What really grinded my gears was the eyes!
On the poster they were clearly brown - but Severus Snape has black eyes. (I think if it were differently J.K.Rowling would have written something like 'his eyes were of such a dark brown they nearly seemed to be black' but she didn't. She gave him black eyes... so where have the black eyes gone?
The fluffier the hair got the lighter the eyes, it seems.
At first I wanted to put this picture in my scrapbook - but I like it enough to call it a 'finished work'
I voted on a poll from
where she asked what the first thing is we see when we think about Snape. That reminded me of my dilemma with that poster - so this picture is also inspired by her poll! No copyright infringement intended!
The whole HP story belongs to J.K.Rowling.
ps. I do realize his skin is greenish +laughs+ - it was just black and white at first, then I tried a natural skin colour, didn't like it - tried a bluish, like I tried before; didn't like it - tried yellowish, didn't like it - in the end I decided to stick with this tone. maybe he's just had something bad for dinner.
