Severus Snape

Severus Snape

For my Severus Snape drawing I saw a confluence of my self-portrait drawing and my drawing of Black Panther coming together in a torrent of emotional swirls surrounding the stoic mask of Snape’s face.

The top left is a dark mark and the right is a doe Patronus, each have countering swirls of motion, simulating emotion, irradiating from his head.

What makes Serverus Snap’s character so complex is the deep dark evil of his involvement with Voldemort and his deep love for Lilly Potter yet his inability to express those emotions. He is trained in magical espionage and to let his mask slip would mean death for others and breaking of his word.

The center of this emotion, the eye of the storm, is the stoic mask of Snape. Almost closed completely shut from all emotion.
