More mucking about with GIMP

We once again have a more nasally endowed Reznor as Snape.  This is the scene where he hears the fated prophecy while eavesdropping at the Hog's Head. 

Original photo:

I'll post the full size painting on deviantArt.


Since I've started to mess around with digital painting, everywhere I look I see people and photos that I'd love to play with and paint.   Today while listening to music, I kept thinking about bands that would make great DE group portraits or a lead singer that would look good as Snape.  The first to come to mind was Lux Interior (who very recently passed away :(...may he rest in peace) and Poison Ivy of the band The Cramps.  This would make a fun Snape and Hermione painting:

Another was Dave Vanian of The Damned:

Neither have the nose, but that can be remedied.  *evil grin*  On a random note, these photos of Vanian are from the 80's.  I can't help but to wonder if TIm Burton was a Damned fan.  Sweeney Todd totally had Dave Vanian hair!

That's fabulous!! It really does capture the look of someone listening to something fascinating at a door, and is very Snape-like.

I've started messing about more with photoshop, but it's really time-consuming and I don't have anything to show for it yet...

Thanks H! :)

Yes, it is time consuming, but very relaxing. It's been a nice release for me. I need to get photoshop! GIMP has been pretty handy though, so I think I can live without it for a while.

I hope all is well for you!

*squees* I love it, look at his hair. You have mastered the hair *G* He really makes a good model for Snape ;)

I saw in your comment about working on them is relaxing, same here. I have to work on something each night. It's so calming for me, it gives me a chance to unwind.

Do you think it's to early to start packing for July yet?

*hugs* Thanks! Now, I wish I could do eyebrows. :)

It is very relaxing! I'm glad I found this outlet...I needed it. It's better turning into zombie!qui and sitting in front of the telly.

July seems so far away, but I know it'll be here in the blink of an eye!
