Harry Potter and Severus Snape (AU). "Never letting you go."

As you can see, Harry in this painting is no longer based off of the Movie (Daniel Radcliffe) Harry. I no longer feel any desire or inspiration to represent the HP characters based on the movie. I recently reread all 7 books, and they inspire a different image/look to the characters than what has become the standard. So I am sorry, but this will be the very last time that I used Alan Rickman as Severus Snape as well. The actors are amazing, and I love them all extremely much, but the way I see the characters based on JKR's description differs from how the movie represented them.

I'm not really a fan of slash but I really like scenes like this where they show affection rather than just basically hating each other, kind of like a father and son. I think so much could've been done with their relationship than what was done in the series, especially knowing about Snape's past. I don't think even really hated Harry, even though he looked like James but more pain than anything. He doesn't want to hate Harry or associate him with his father but he can't help it. This almost looks like what Harry wishes he could do after Snape dies and Harry finds out the truth, he wants to hug him so badly and thank him for helping taking care of him and appogize for doubting him and not understanding what he went through, wishing he could've helped him.
This is so stunning. The emotional turmoil in this picture is quite evident to me. I don't really ship Snarry, but this is simply beautiful. 
Really good work, well done!

I mean, I don't actually ship them together... I prefer to stick to gen relationships, but still.

Omg your art is awesome
It's always going to be Alan Rickman for me and Daniel Radcliffe, but I'm not opposed to new interpretations when I read Snarry. I even have a hard time visualizing Radcliffe when I read, despite my efforts. I absolutely love your work. This is a fantastic piece. I hope you make more. There's not enough Snarry fan art in this world. Or even nc-17 ones lol.
