He could not deny it. "Well. Well, I'm not a Gryffindor, am I?"
"No," I said, agreeing and disagreeing at once. Aaaah! I've never been this close to him. Touching him...
"Yes," he insisted. "I know you feel as I do. Just try me. Come on. Try me."

megillakittyI love the emotion in this. The hunger, the desire. I can feel it! The artwork itself is stunning as well. The hair looks so soft, the skin, the texture of the clothing. Very well done.

SpiritArcher on July 27, 2007, 7:36:30 AM

SpiritArcher on
SpiritArcherMagnificently done. I love how you've used the brushes and textures, it makes the picture seem more real. Since there eyes are connecting, I have a more powerful feel of what they're thinking and feeling. The one thing I love most of all from this, is the hair. I love how the hair on the both of them looks, it seems real. Snape's hairs layered, something I've never seen done before (that I can remember) and Lily's is just gorgeous.

Beautifully done, :] I'll be faving this now..
