That Kid from Spinners' End by ameraucanablues That Kid from Spinners' End by ameraucanablues
Why is it that the best sketches are always those drawn on a napkin while listening to some idiot at work warble on about some bullcrap? ;P

Regardless, I loved how little pre-'Prince's Tale' Sevvie's big, sad, angry, feral kitten-ish black eyes looked, so I decided to scan and color and put a graffitied background behind him. I guess he reflects the same mood I was in last week. *HUGS THIS GREASY LITTLE ANGEL AND BUYS HIM COOKIES & CREAM ICE CREAM (and gives him a bath)!!!* :D

SEV, Y U SO DICKENS-ESQUE??? And thank you to my dearest co-pilot, :iconladymacbeth1755: for helping me muse this concept! :heart:

Actually, Oliver! came out that same year too, but he'd probably find it too infantile for his liking!

I love Oliver Twist, although I've never seen Oliver! (I know, le gasp!) I'd introduce him and Lily to MAD Magazine. Every kid should read MAD.

I assume he read Spider-Man in the Sixties, and identified like crazy with the super-powered geek with his money problems, family problems, and failed social life. I certainly did, and I had none of Sev's problems except the bad (though not THAT bad) social life.

Yes, I still have my comics collection! I can't draw figures in action without Steve Ditko swipes. I also turn to Ditko whenever I simply cannot get someone's hands right. ;)

I bet so too! Spider-Man was such a great hero.

I wish I could emulate Wally Wood and Ricardo Delgado in my drawings.

I don't actually try to emulate Ditko's style. I just go to him for poses when I can't work it out myself--especially for figures in action. Severus Snape leaps into battle like Spidey! :spidey:

No, Sev's battle style is not at all like Spidey's. One of these days, however, I'm going to swipe a standard Superman-Lois Lane pose to depict flying Sev rescuing Hermione. Or Lily. Or maybe Harry. Up, up, and away! :superman:

Thanks! :) Yeah I wanna take him to see Zeffirelli's Romeo & Juliette and cover his eyes when Olivia Hussey's boobs pop out and buy him popcorn! :D

Yeah, he'd be grossed out for life. At sixteen, would he want to see All the President's Men? 'Cause I'd drag him to see that.

Answer: because he's based on one. (And Heathcliffe, for which we must forgive Ms Rowling in her moment of weakness, and thank her for making a better character.)
