The Half Blood Prince by mr-pip The Half Blood Prince by mr-pip
A Harry Potter fanart! Because I'm a sad nerd deep down, and we all love Harry Potter, even if we're too cool to admit it.

So this was drawn in pencil on paper, then scanned in and jazzed up in photoshop. All of it is mine except the patterns on the chairs, which came from a google image search for "vintage wallpaper". It was actually adapted from a coursework I did for university, but I turned it into Snape because let's be honest, fanart gets more attention.

There was originally going to be someone sitting in the other chair, but I couldn't decide who. My first thought was Lucius Malfoy, but he was too difficult to draw (and he doesn't suit sepia). Then I thought Dumbledore, but I'd already arranged the chess set to have Snape winning (he can checkmate in 3 moves, I was OCD about all the pieces being in the right place). And I think if Snape and Dumbledore had a chess match, Dumbledore would probably win. So alas, the chair remains empty, although I may go back and fill it at a later date. If there's any particular person you'd like to see occupying the chair and losing at chess to Snape, let me know ;D

If the series were to be animated, this would be the best version of Snape

The detail in this is stunning. I love the globe behind him and all those books. His expression is brilliant.
