Snep, Snep…Severus Snep

Time for another drawing, this time Alan Rickman as Severus Snape. :) It was a bit uncomfortable staring into those judging, disapproving eyes for hours on end, but other than that he was a lot of fun. ;) I hope you like it. :)

Three months since my last haul, and four new and shiny books to show. :) Stand-Off by Andrew Smith.
