The Mirror of Erised by Ellygator The Mirror of Erised by Ellygator
(2007) 12"x9" pencil on paper.

Well, it's my take on a rather popular subject here on DA at the moment. My one problem is the young couple in the mirror. I know that I got it as stock here off DA, but I cannot for the life of me find the gallery again where it came from. If anyone knows, please let me know so I can give credit.

Thank you! I really think that is what Snape would see - Lily forgiving him...

Thank you! Not canon, but I really think it's what I believe he'd see... In a certain way he's more loyal than any Gryffindor.

Thank you, just had to draw this after HBP... I really loved how Snape developed in the books, from the greasy, hated anti-hero to a tragic figure with his own dignity.

I actually wasn't on DA all of yesterday or last night and I'm sorry the system screwed around with your comment. I did not delete anything you posted in response to my drawing and only saw all of your comments (20 in total) this morning.

As far as the inscription goes, you are right, but I didn't want the lettering to detract from the faces, so I left it out.

Yeah, it was amazing... And if you reread the other books, you can catch hints of it (JKR knows her stuff eh?). I actually thought Snape was evil after HBP until I read The Prince's Tale, which inspired a BIG double-take moment.

Well it is hard to say, because it is Severus Snape, after all, however I think he was very tired being double-agent. So I guess he could see himself without Dark Mark, but it is only guess. :)
