"Mirror, mirror, on the wall; tell me that I've got a heart after all."
A drawing I've been meaning to do for months, of Severus in front of the Mirror of Erised. I've always thought that he'd see himself and Lily, at first, together and in love, and after he'd seen Harry for the first time he would have seen Harry with them, as their son, without the scar and the glasses that marked him as James' son, and as Voldemort's almost-victim.
I felt like, to match the mood that Severus would surely be in, black, gray, and white should be the predominant colours. But I also felt that Lily's hair needed to stay red, and it ended up as the only colour in the piece.
Overall I'm thrilled with this piece. It turned out exactly as I wanted it to. The mirror frame and the lighting I'm especially thrilled with.
Medium: Mechanical pencil for sketch, Copic fineliners, Faber-Castell PITT artist pens, and watered-down calligraphy ink.

I really didn't want to have to do this, and I'm sorry, but I've added a watermark to stop any further theft of this picture. It's gotten out of hand and as much as I hate watermarking stuff, I am also very tired of having to contact people on tumblr to credit me or take it down. So, watermark. Hopefully now this stops
