For you, [livejournal.com profile] dixiebell12  ! Thank you so much for the advice, support, and everything else over these last few weeks.  I'm so glad to have met you.  You're an inspiration!  Also, thank you a million times over for all of the breathtaking, beautiful art you create and share with us all.  *hugs*  I'm afraid this turned out a bit angsty - I hope that's okay.  I'll make you a happier one next time, promise! 

Dixie likes Adrien Brody as Snape - so here he is!  I think I lost some of the Brody-ness while painting though.  This was done using the free program GIMP, though the hair was done in PhotoDraw.  I've started posting my art to deviantArt, so you can find the full size image here.


Severus studied his forearm, the recent thrill of acceptance beginning to ebb away.  He looked away as cold waves of uncertainty began to crash over him.

Oh, lucky Dixiebelle! this is lovely! If I could do this, I'd give up writing and play at drawing all the time!

*gasp* A world without subvers writing would be...would be...well, there just aren't words to describe it!! *shudders*

Thanks! I can't draw either. It's different on the computer. If I mess up, it's just a simple Clt+Z to fix the error! Now if only life had an 'undo' option...

OMG! It's perfect *squees* I love it *hugs & squeezes*. You did a breathtaking job. He is the perfect mixture of Brody and Snape. He still has Brody's beautiful eyes. I am a whore for angst, and you captured that well. *squees* You should be very proud;D

*blushes* That's what friends are for sweetheart ;) If I hadn't gotten so much support and advice and just plain handholding I would have given up ages ago. I found that you can do so much more and better when you have friends cheering you on, than you could ever do alone. I wouldn't trade that for anything and if I can do the same for you, I'm happy to do so.

He's so pretty *squees some more*,

That is truly amazing. I love it and the depth of the caption above it. Poor Severus.

Great job!

Thanks! I attempted to paint the hair in GIMP...but it didn't look as good as it does using PhotoDraw.

An exquisite take on the original--you've added so much to make this quite beautifully its own work!
