That Can't Be Good by kira617 That Can't Be Good by kira617
I doesn’t matter if you think Snape is really reformed or not, the presence of that tattoo can’t be a good thing for him.

Originally, I assumed that this was Snape first noticing the reappearance of the mark, but then I though it would be cool if this was when Vol…He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named :D summoned all the Death Eater’s to him at the end of 4th year.

Yes, I know that the tattoo never glowed green, but come on it looks cool, plus I wanted some practice with color shading (i.e. on his face). I wouldn’t have been able to do that if I made the thing black, and I couldn’t really see the red glowing.

Ok, I wasn't going to leave a second comment, but I just feel the need to thank you profusely for making the skull of the mark that of a lion. It took me a second longer to recognize it, but it really brings the picture together and adds the sort of continuity that I, personally, need. Kudos!

I especially feel like applauding on the background in this.

The green shining on his face is extremely well done, but that has been pointed out by several others before me. The lion character is cool as always - your characters AND drawings remain of unusual high quality.

As for the background... the whole texture of the dungeon fits right in with the picture, and Snape´s shade is just the way it should be. Still nothing out of the ordinary (for your standards, not DA standards).

But the way you made the green reflect on the walls!

There´s nothing I can add to that, Kira. It´s... perfect. Ghastly.


I love it. I always love it.

Very cool.

Never saw Snape as a lion before, as that's more Gryffindors' thing.

But very cute none-the-less.
