Summer of 1980 by SofiaLK1987 Summer of 1980 by SofiaLK1987
This deviation was created for Spinner's End Challenge #11 "Severus' Summer Holiday" [link]

HB pencil + B5 pencil on A4 Fabriano paper (smooth).

You totally need to listen to THIS, while looking at the picture: [link]
'Cause this marvellous song inspired the piece. The song is from 1980 as well, so it's fitting, right? :)

I thought this 20 years old Snape would be more than willing to wait for his Lily there, in a dusty street in Manchester. He wants to set things right with her, once and for all, so he drops by her place, at sunset, waiting for her...like this Romeo in the song! He wants to talk and explain himself, like he wasn't able to do after they had that argument, during fifth year at Hogwarts. He needs this confrontation! But she doesn't look like she's interested at all...She's already married to James, and Snape already joined the Death Eater by now! So he just stands there with this bitter-sweet smile on his lips, waitin' for forgiveness...something that would never happen.

Bawwwwwwwww....I'm so depressing! :icondragoncryingplz:

Awesome drawing! Severus looks so unhappy and sad here. He knows very well that heŽd probably lost Lily forever, yet he keeps waiting for her. If she had only listened to him again, if only he had the chance to apologize to her. Poor boy :-(. He deserves a big hug.

I love Sevs expression, especially his eyes, so full of emotion. I also like his clothes and pose. He looks so lost. Life can be unfair sometimes.

Very well done :-)!

:iconplzhug: Awww, he totally needs a hug! But he'll hex anyone who'd be bold enough to attempt to, I'm afraid! :D
Yup. Life has been harsh to him. :iconsadnod:

Awesome pose, nose and tennis shoes :heart: Great job on the background as well, that fence would have driven me nuts but you pulled off the perspective effectively. This is an exciting entry to Spinner's challenge! :clap:

:iconlazyblush2plz: Well, what can I say? I'm flattered!
I had a hard time deciding about the possibility to put this piece on dA. Yah, y'know: I don't usually draw backgrounds and bodies, and I wasn't certain about the result...but! Here he is anyway. :D
:iconbubblecuteplz: I'm so SO glad you like him!

Beautiful work and I love that you did such a wonderful and detailed background (the bane of many artists). I also like the song--good choice!

The backgrounds are also my bane!! But! Since this was meant to be submitted for the Challange I thought Snape needed a background :meow:
Believe me...I thought A LOT about submittin' this one...there are so many things I don't like..but still, here he is! :nod:
He's always there, in the end.

Oh I'm glad you liked the song. One of my Fave! :meow: I repeatedly listend to "Romeo & Juliet" while drawing this...I can't divide the song and the drawing: they're so entwined that I can't tell one from another in my mind. haha! :hug: Thanks for taking the time to comment on my work, as always. I really appreciate it! :heart:

BHAHAHAHAHAHA! Remember my "Manchester street view" ...errrm...inconvenience?! :D
Snape: "Silly wanke'hz"
I'm still laughing about that. I can totally imagine his accent, and the scowling, and the disgusted snarl! AND AND...and it's freaking 3 in the morning here! hahahaha Better retreat! :hug:

oh look at him, isn't he just lovely :D I really admire all the effort you put into the background, because it can definitely be a challenge sometimes! Good for you, and I like his outfit and pose I could certainly see him waiting like that for a very long time ..

Snape: WHO the hell was that???? <_<
