It’s the first day of 2014 and also WIZARDING WEDNESDAY. What better way to kick off the year? This week’s W.W. task was to draw Snape. I figure there will be plenty of submissions that cover much better scenes than this one, but I thought this one would be fun. I’m so confused about the color in this piece. It looks different in Photoshop, Windows Photo Viewer, and Tumblr. I DON’T GET IT. I hope it’s not a disaster. Anyway, this is a depiction of the scene below.
"Hang on…" Harry muttered to Ron. "There’s an empty chair at the staff table…. Where’s Snape?"
"Maybe he’s ill!" said Ron hopefully.
"Maybe he’s left," said Harry, ‘because he missed out on the Defense Against the Dark Arts job again!"
"Or he might have been sacked!" said Ron enthusiastically. "I mean, everyone hates him —"
"Or maybe," said a very cold voice right behind them, "he’s waiting to hear why you two didn’t arrive on the school train."
Harry spun around. There, his black robes rippling in a cold breeze, stood Severus Snape. He was a thin man with sallow skin, a hooked nose and greasy, shoulder-length black hair, and at this moment, he was smiling in a way that told Harry he and Ron were in very deep trouble.
