Defense Against the Dark Arts, Professor Snape by 

I think this was my favourite pose for Professor Snape. It captures all his qualities of courage as well as the guarded man who could could read the thoughts of others while protecting prying eyes from his own private world. In the world of Harry Potter, Snape was my hero…maybe this was because Alan Rickman brought forth a dimension of Snape’s character in his movie portrayal that was mostly overlooked in the book series.

The original art is 10×15″ oil painting on board. The red moon eclipse was totally of my own design as well as the wand blast.

    Loved this one too. Had to order the iPhone case. Beautiful work!

  • aww, thanks! I loved the power and courage behind his look in this one. It’s a tribute to his strength. It’s funny – I was so inundated by fan art images on the web depicting his weaknesses, I just had to stand up for him and do art that celebrated his strengths.
