Description: Hello people. I bet most of you recognize this character from the Harry Potter movie series. One of the most loved characters, however you would not like to have him as a teacher , unless you're some kind of masochist. Anyway, I hope you like this tutorial ,and please don't complain that I made him too old. Alan Rickman wasn't young when he played him . Enjoy !
