Summer's End by Teq-Uila Summer's End by Teq-Uila
Long overdue prize request for *Elezar81 - she asked me to draw something from the 'Harry Potter' books, featuring young Snape, as we don't know too much about his childhood.

***
I think Severus Snape and his buddy Lily Evans would've had a slightly mischievous streak as kids. In addition, they'd be itching to try out new spells when they return to school. Here it's the end of summer/beginning of autumn and they've symbolically transfigured Hagrid's watermelon crop into a pumpkin patch.
(They'll let him know it was them a bit later and apologise with a gift of Butterbeer, but for now, they're content eating watermelon, and Hagrid is content tut-tutting at poor James and Peter.)

***
All comments are loved! :heart:

I really like the composition of this one. You have a full scene, from the mountains far in the background to the watermelon slice in the foreground. I like how the trees frame the three in the back as well. Great job on the the trees btw, the texture gives them depth.
The premise of this is really cute too, I like the idea of Severus and Lily being just as mischievous as the Marauders. :D

Thank you so much for the wonderful feedback, and I appreciate all the support you have given through your comments! :hug:

I am happy that you like the composition and am very pleased that you enjoyed the tree bark texture - it took time to paint, was the first time I tried to do it so detailed. :)
Yes, I like to imagine this duo as a bit cheeky, too. :D

Aww, thanks for asking :hug: - it's nothing objectively bad, just that my pet Lari died this weekend, and I was terribly attached to him. I miss my little buddy. :(

And how did it go - did any treaters dare to visit your super-spooky house? :D

I really fucking love this. Not just a little bit. Everything about it: your composition, how your eye roams around the pieces, filling in story; the cool and the warmth, an overcast sky; our couple's expressions of total comfort and conspiracy between friends; the amazing details like the ridge of cut watermelon, fuzzy bee bottoms, the morphing pumpkinmelon (I knew it was a spell before I read your comments), tree bark and the shafts of sunlight. The more I look at it, the more I like it.

You should be incredibly proud of this.
