Okay - this is my fourth PhotoDraw fanart attempt, and (I think) it's going to be the last for a while.  I need to get caught up on the Exchange fics!  They've all been so squee-fully wonderful that I don't want to rush through reading them.  I also need to finish writing a chapter of Magic of Wands sooner rather than later.

Anyway, we have another TR as Snape.  This is definitely still a WIP.  I want to do something with the background, work on the hair, and he needs a thicker wand (*snicker* - a thicker wand indeed).  I also need to brush up the detailing on the hand.

...and here's the photo:

That one is even better *squees* How do you do it, do you just paint over it? Do you do the shading yourself or does the program do it for you, I'm pants at shading ;) I have hair envy so bad. Hair gives me major problems and I usually beg droxy to do that for me. If I can't do something she usually can.

Have you tried to do one of Adrien Brody *Evil Grin* he's my Snape ;D

You need to start posting these on the Snarry LJ sites and on Deviant Art.

Thanks! Yes, I use the airbrushing and painting tools and paint the basic outline over the picture. I then delete the picture and finish the shading, hair, additions, etc. etc. freehand. It's a bit time consuming and there's probably an easier way to do it, but this way, it feels more like painting. :)

I do love AB as Snape as well. Definitely on my list of men to play with. Any picture suggestions?

I did start a Deviant Art account and uploaded them there. I'm still exploring that site and can't wait until I have some extra time to check out all the art there!

I tried to do one like yours and Adrien ended up looking like a drag queen (LOLOL) I'll stick to my manips I guess *G*

It's funny how each artist (and I use that term loosely where I'm concerned)can only do certain things and completely fail at others. I took to photo manipulations easily and I can't figure out why other people have trouble doing it because it seems easy to me. Just like you, you explained your process and it sounded easy and I tried and total fail. I think I called my PC every dirty word in the book ;) Yours looks so good and mine looked like a 3 year old did it with finger paint *G* I also have trouble with shadows, I usally just leave them out because I can't do them.

I'd load you up some A. brody pics but my DSL doesn't like this cold weather and it's been so slow the last few days. It took an hour just to load up my last pic last night.

How funny! Trying to photo manip was what got me playing with PhotoDraw, and yup, that didn't work so well for me. It's really difficult! So I decided, what the heck, I'll play with the paint tools. X)

Your photo manipuations are beyond awesome! I'm in awe and still trying to figure out how you do it!

Urgh. As of yesterday, my DSL is on the fritz too. WTF. I'm operating on a very faint, very sketchy wifi signal that I'm picking up from (I think) a coffee shop.

Did you ever see my Silver Doe Vid? That background was made out of about 10 different pics. I'd like a tree from that one, the snow bank from another, I'd just piece them together like doing a puzzle. Then I would blend them in. If you know where to look you can find the flaws. I was looking at it again the other day and spotted part of a park bench! *blushes* How embarrassing *G*

At least you can get WiFi, if mine goes completely out, I'll be stuck with dialup *growls at DSL *

I haven't seen it yet! I'll check it out when I get real internet access again. The WiFi just ain't cuttin' it. I'm literally about to lose my mind!! ARGH!!!! Need-fast-internetz-now! Some dude from the phone company is supposed to come out and look at things...but not until MONDAY! *pulls hair out*

There are time I wish there were more than 24 hours in a day and that I didn't have to sleep.

Beautiful shiny, wispy hair! You keep going - art is SO relaxing.

Thanks! Yes, I had a bit of fun with the hair. :) Very relaxing! I've been so exhausted after work that my brain doesn't want to cooperate with writing, so it's been very nice to find another creative outlet!

Thank you!

No problem on the lack of comments. You've had a lot going on in your life, so it's completely understandable. Never feel guilty! :)

I think this one is my favorite so far!

The hair is just awesome! :)

Thanks! I had too much fun with the hair...possibly a bit overzealous, but I couldn't help myself. :)

*still drooling over your icon*
