Escape by pythiadelphi Escape by pythiadelphi
Severus Snape. Drawn for the 'Thank you, Severus' challenge for the dA group Spinner's End. This is my interpretation of a canon Snape who didn't have much going on in his life that made him happy. So I thought, what if he had a talent for music that gave him the escape he needed. So this is my gift to him: a Stradivarius a la Sherlock Holmes, to thank him for putting up with all that crap for so long. :-)

Ink pens on bristol board. Inspired by Gustave Dore's spot illustrations. You have no idea how much trouble Snape's left leg in the background gave me! I'm still not 100% happy with it, but am submitting anyway.

Thanks very much. He would play melancholic music though, wouldn't he?

Definitley not joyful! Maby something like the Devil's Trill? A bit cliche, I know, but I do think that piece would fit here perfectly - due to how it sounds not its title ;).

I am actually ignorant of that piece, so will have to look it up and listen when I am home from work, but the title seems apt. :-)

I'm not sure canon!Snape would, myself, because how could he learn being from the background he was from, unless he learned later in life, but was there any time what with the teaching and the spying and the kowtowing to two masters, but... my fanon Snape certainly does! :-)

Maybe not, though he doesn't have to be a PRODIGY. After all, it's a hobby :)
