My favorite tale is the Harry Potter series, especially the Snape-storyline. So hearttouching, dramatic and enigmatic from the first book until the end. I was crying rivers when I read the episode "The princes tale".
I love stories that make me smile, fear, hope, cry, all in one. The HP series carries me to a completely different world, especially I love that somehow oldfashioned touch and J.K.Rowlings unique humor which I miss in the movies.

This is my entry to the "My favorite tale" contest by :iconpainters:
Hope you like it.

Oil on canvas, 60 x 60 cm

Edit: Oh my god, thanks so very much for the DD, I´m so very glad that so many people outthere like it. The funny thing is that my very first DD, which was also a Harry Potter fanart, is included in this painting. You can see it as sketch on the right wall.

From the suggester:
"Beautifully done: magical, thoughtful and heartfelt. I simply love the details, just as amazing as the book it illustrates. Amazing art by a talented artist!" ( Suggested by Veronika-Art and Featured by rydi1689 )

And when the people ask me: ,,You still love Harry Potter? After all this time?" I will say ,,Always"
This is a beautiful picture, Severus Snape is my favourite character.

Gonna go lock myself in a cupboard under the stairs, reread Prince's Tale, and cry awhile. :'(

This came together beautifuly! From the pages into real life. Jk Rowling's style was always so vivid and vivacious that I sometimes lost track of reality, your portrait rose up to the challenge. You've done our beloved characters justice and I just can't seem to get over the concept!

This is absolutely brilliant!
The Prince's tale is one that I think is most realistic to life, that is in terms of suffering, lost love, etc...
So very powerful...
And your depiction of him being in the middle of everything....is also so amazing, since it is because of Snape that everything was the way it was,really.
