Lily and Severus, sharing a moment before a night out.

I've been working on this for a while, in little increments. Pencil sketch, inspired by a picture of some celebrity couple, color in photoshop. Stock photo used as ref for bg but now i can't find it since i started this, like, 2 months ago...
I apologize if i accidentally stole this title- i had a title idea since i made the sketch and then saw so many snape/lily's that i forgot MY title!!! but i'm pretty sure this was it.
i'm incredibly fond of this. i used no layer effects, didn't mess with the colors or anything, and i think it still looks pretty ballin. i think this is the most intense piece i've ever made, in terms of lineart-coloring.
go me!

<edit>
I have recieved an overwhelming number of comments regarding

SEVERUS'S HAIR
so I will address it once and for:
The length of his hair is FULLY INTENTIONAL. Snape's greasy long hair is a symbol of his angst, and a way for him to hide from his miserable lonely life. Were he to grow a pair and actually make something of his life by becoming a decent person, he would have, we assume, gained some common sense along the way, and ditched the 'do. In such a difficult relationship, they would both have to make immense sacrifices, and his hair is a representation of that.
also, Lily is a sensible girl, and would not have tolerated that nastiness. </edit>

I've got no issue with the hair - Sev's entitled to change his style, I think. I really like the atmosphere of the city (Manchester?) around them. The architecture and the lighting is beautiful.
I do wonder if Lily is wearing high heels? I always imagined Snape being a good bit taller than her.

All your paintings capture that exact moment climax that emotion reaches before bubbling over.
