Great actor, great character ! I grew up with Harry Potter and I really loved Severus Snape, such an ambiguous figure !
First portrait on bristol paper... The paper I used before was almost like bristol. Bristol is better for drawings, especially for the skin, but I think I prefer the other paper for the work of dark areas (the background for instance) and the clothes.
Hmmm and I really don't like drawing dark hair, I think I gonna draw again blond people
