This started with a doodle of Snape while reading through the Harry Potter books. I had already seen a few of the movies so of course I visualized the movie versions of the characters while readin. I then decided to do additional character sketches and then digital illustrations.
I first created the base elements in Adobe Illustrator and then brought those elements into Photoshop as smart objects. Next, I started painting on multiple layers just using a mouse. Unfortunately, I only got two of the characters completed before moving on to other projects.
I’ve included the original Snape doodle that kicked off this series as well as the additional character sketches.They were sketched with a ballpoint pen.
