I know, I've posted like a gazillion times, but I wanted to get this up before leaving town. 

This is for
[livejournal.com profile] hilaritasetlux  for her birthday.  She also just had a beautiful baby girl, so this is a congratulations gift as well. 

Her prompt was:

Severus standing, as though before a class, hands behind his back, with an eyebrow raised in...question? Amusement? Disdain? A mix?

So, here he is.  For the first time ever, I didn't use a reference photo. *wibbles*  I wanted the expression to be intimidating yet unreadable. Is he thinking WTF?  Is he thinking 'dear Merlin, just kill me now!'?  Or is he pleased?  Impressed? 

Full size is on my deviantart page.

Anyway - happy (late) birthday hilaritasetlux, and congratulations!  *hugs and squeezes*

My Luna costume is coming together.  I might have two Luna costumes for Azkatraz...but I'll definitely have at least one.  I'll also have my anon Death Eater and Slytherin costumes.

Here's some pics.  I don't have a wig yet...but you can see the general idea.  Pink jacket is courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] dixiebell12 .  I made the earrings out of paperclay and the necklace out of butterbeer corks (duh!) and wooden beads from [livejournal.com profile] droxy 's old sewing chair cover that finally gave out on her.  Thanks Dixiebell and Droxy!  Repurposing at its best!  I was a total slacker and purchased the spectrespecs from this lovely crafter.  I must admit...the specs make the costume.

A tense moment during Potter's Occlum--, erm, Remedial Potions lesson.

This is art for the lovely [livejournal.com profile] dixiebell12 !  It's not a Snarry per se, but it is Snape and Harry!  :D  I hope you likes.

I used this still from Sweeney Todd as a reference photo. This is the first time I've used Rickman for a reference, though I didn't want a Rickman Snape, so I tried to make it not look like him.  Full size is on my deviantart page.

I've been sick so I'm a few days behind on LJ.  I'll try and catch up with everyone tonight/tomorrow.  :)

Art - Oops!

Reason #36 that teaching potions sucks.  Poor Snape.  Then again, I think I feel worse for the student that spilled their cauldron! 

Full size viewable on my DeviantArt here.

Done in PhotoShop 5.0.  Reference photo for the pose was the lovely Dave Vanian.

Happy Birthday dearest [livejournal.com profile] hilaritasetlux !  I hope you have a most wonderful birthday tomorrow!  It's been quite the ride discovering and creating fanfic/fanart with you.  I don't know where I'd be today creatively without your insight, brilliance, and support. Thank you! 

Give me a prompt for some art (since the writing muse still seems to be on strike) and I shall (attempt to) deliver!

I made it home safely from my trip, though I am beyond exhausted.  I had more fun than I thought I would.  :)

I see that the SSHG Exchange reveal came up while I was away!  The lovely [livejournal.com profile] teshara  wrote my gift, Anger Management . It was such a fun and great story, so if you haven't read it yet, do!

Also, now that the reveal has been posted, I can properly thank the betas for the story I wrote (The Sacking of Severus Snape).  Thank you [livejournal.com profile] sc010f  and [livejournal.com profile] hilaritasetlux  for their help on this story.  This was my first attempt at writing anything resembling a PWP, and I couldn't have done it without their help.  Thank you SO much!!!

Off to bed I go!

By a stroke of luck and two counts of pure generosity, I managed to come into possession of a [profile] dixiebell12Death Eater mask for Azkatraz.

*squees madly*

It was made for [livejournal.com profile] droxy, but unfortunately, it didn't fit her. :( While I was at her house last weekend, she showed it to me and I tried it on. It was a perfect fit. With Dixie's permission, Droxy passed it on to me. I still can't believe I get to wear it to Az!

*grabs Dixiebell and Droxy by their collars and squeals thankyouthankyouthankyou*

The mask is so beautiful and wonderfully scary! Dixiebell did such an amazing job with it. I can't even believe it. Guh. It's nothing short of brilliant.
Here it is (it's just perfect):


~~More pics behind the cut!~~ )

It's a week early, but I'm going to be pretty scarce over the next few weeks due to work, so I wanted to post this Easter-y pic while I had the chance. :D

I made this silliness for [profile] dixiebell12a while ago after discussing how evilly delicious chocolate bunnies were and how much we wanted one.

~~~Severus Snape says: This confected rodent is clearly full of Dark Magic~~~ )

Some "thank you" art for [livejournal.com profile] droxy !  Thank you sooooooo much for the sewing lessons, for letting me watch you sew (did you feel like you were in a fish tank?), for driving me all over creation while thrifting, and for so much more.  Thank you!  Here's some Brody!Snape artiz in return.

(Proper size will be uploaded shortly at my deviantart page here)

Title:   A Wedding Gift

I figure Hermione would love this book as a wedding gift.  :)  Severus...well, I think he's tired and ready to get Hermione alone.  I think he's also slightly worried that this particular gift might interfere with their Honeymoon.

Done in PhotoShop 5.0.  Here's the original photo.  Adrien Brody as Snape and Bryce Dallas Howard as Granger.

A while back, as a nudge for some more Brody!Snape art, [livejournal.com profile] dixiebell12  gave me the following lovely picture of the delectable man in an undershirt, draped over the back of a chair:

And do I give you Snape in an undershirt draped over the back of a chair?  Of course not.  I fully intended to, but I've found that these things seem to take on a life of their own. 

Instead I give you Snape draped over books. )

So, I visited Droxy today and she taught me how to use a sewing machine. Perhaps surprisingly, I lived to tell the tale. There were no horrific accidents involving fingers/needles nor were there any explosions. It was actually a lot less scary than I thought it would be, though certainly not easy.

Droxy was a great teacher. She only made me cry twice. ;)

Okay, so there was no crying either! She really was a great teacher though. I learned a lot. I will no longer look at sewing machines and tremble.

What did I sew? Why, I sewed a rectangle cloak for dixiebell12's *bleepcensored* costume! (Are you scared dix? LOL).

My Exchange gift was posted today and it is AWESOME!  I'm so in love with it.  I can't wait to find out who the author is so that I can worship them.

qui_quae_quod: (Default)

I hope you have the happiest of happy birthdays [livejournal.com profile] dixiebell12 !  :)  I'm so glad to have met you.  It's been a joy to get to know you!  Cheers!

Seriously.  You hear the weather getting bad outside, the weatherman starts saying 'residents of Plano, Frisco, etc. take cover immediately', and then the sirens start to blare.  Yup, instant panic attack for me.  Better than a shot of caffeine straight into a vein.  I'll be up all night now.

Well, the scary weather has now passed and I'm okay...if, yet again, a little shaken.  I hate the weather here, and I'm not sure I'll ever adjust.  If I had a basement or some stable form of shelter, I probably wouldn't be such a wimp about it all.

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. 

~~~Eavesdropping~~~ )
qui_quae_quod: (Default)

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.

It is more fun to make things when they are for people.  :)  Hmmm...what kind of interesting things can I make?  *has shifty eyes*

The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me!

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!
- What I create will be just for you.
- It'll be done this year.
- You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be wood [though this is doubtful]. Possibly metal. Perhaps a picture. Something written. Or, I may bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!
- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.

The catch? Oh, the catch is that you have to put this in your journal as well. We all can make stuff

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.

So, this one is entirely [livejournal.com profile] kingpig's fault.  She posted some pictures of Trent Reznor, and with my recent PhotoDraw experimentation craze, I decided to play with one.  I'm calling it a 'work in progress' because I'd like to do some additional work and improve things as I practice and (hopefully) improve my skill at digital painting.

~~~ Click for some Snape art ~~~ )

Thanks for posting such inspiring pictures kingpig!  I'm going to start playing with the other one...if I can do it without drooling all over my keyboard.
qui_quae_quod: (Default)

I'm on a roll.  Some more experimentation with Crispin as Snape.

~~~ More Artz ~~~ )
