And after 10 hours of work, it's finally finished! Now, if you excuse me, I am going to bed. It's up to you to figure out the meaning of this picture (and if you want to tell me, I'll be pleased to hear).

EDIT: Thank you so much for the DD!!

All the textures have been done by me.
Severus Snape and Albus Dumbledore from Harry Potter by J.K.Rowling.

This captured Albus perfectly. On one half, he's a genuinely good guy and trying to do what's right (in my opinion, it won't change) but he has this other, darker half that's a chessmaster, a Machiavellian and somewhat cruel and detached. Even a bit judgemental at times (poor Severus, he's an asshole but come on, he deserves a little kindness.)

You are very much welcome. I mean they're my faves too, behind Harry of course. And you showed them both perfectly, their good and their bad sides. I just hate when people limit them to all bad you know.

Heh... well, people tend to do that, not only with fictional characters

I know right, Snape is a bullying asswipe and Dumbledore is manipulative and secretive, but that doesn't make them bad guys. And the Fandom really loves turning Albus into Voldemort 2.0.

Reference to The Kiss, which is loving in idea but forceful. Is embues ownership on the bigger subject, Dumbledore, and his hands are reaching for Snape's neck much as how the man in The Kiss has his hands around the woman's neck. Dumbledore's hands not quite reaching could symbolize a forced Deus ex Machina, as their form creates another ray of light from the sun depicted.
In color, Dumbledore's sleeves are orange with blue stripes, whereas Snape's sleeves are blue with orange stripes. The same type of theme is depicted on their other clothes. This might symbolize their interconnection and whatevs. Then there is the gradient, from light to dark, which might mean that Dumbledore uses Snape to stay pure, to not get his own hands dirty.
The shapes on Dumbledore and spread evenly, and the shapes on Snape are clustered. The swirly motif around the subjects shows up on Snape's clothing, perhaps symbolizing that he is the only one affected by the despair around them.
Snape's only haven is Lily's note, his own little sun, its paper the same tone as the symbolic sun depicted.

Wow, that's quite an analysis =P
But do you want to know a secret? (I was not really thinking on The Kiss when I drew this XD)

But cannot say you're wrong on your interpretation! :clap:

That's so surprising! Were you thinking Klimt or art nouveau at all?

Well, of course I was thinking on Klimt, but not the painting of The Kiss XDD but a lot of people have mentioned that it reminds them on the kiss, so I guess I was unconsciously inspired by it maybe?
