Ron/Hermione wedding night. commission art

An illustration for belovedranger's story Destination Unknown. This is the middle part of the triptych which starts with this painting and ends with this one.

This painting was done with Copic markers, pastels and gouache, and it is one of those 'wonderful' pieces that just doesn't reproduce. The colours in the scan look garish (pink!) and lighter in the shadow areas compared to the original, and completely foiled my attempts at colour-correction. *frustration!* Although I was trying to do it at midnight, so that probably didn't help...
Nevertheless, even if I spent all day on it, I'm sure it would never match the original anyway. So meh. That's the joy of owning original art; only you get to see it as it really is. ;~) Oh, and like the first in this series, there are details on Hermione's dress which the scanner just doesn't see. *glee*

a closeup -

And here's the 3 paintings put together. Top one is a photo of the paintings, and the bottom one is the scanned versions. You can really see the difference in the colours...

These are all amazing. I love the details with the leaves and the family tree in the first pic, especially.

They are absolutely stunning! The coloring is so beautiful, and the embraces are so lovingly gentle. Just lovely!

Eeeep! It was supposed to be a new waxing moon! It is a new waxing moon! In AUSTRALIA. I did an AUSTRALIAN moon!! *headdesk* *feels like a complete idiot* That's the sort of thing I pull other folks up on all the time too. (getting the moon phases wrong in the North and South Hemispheres) Oh well... the crescent facing the otherway would have taken the viewer's eye out of the picture. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!!

I actually showed this to my mother...She was as amazed as I was. Just wow...

These are absolutely gorgeous. I love all three of them.

Although I resent that Ron and Hermione appear to have a better sex life than I do. ;)

Wow, that's absolutely amazing. I think the one of the wedding with most of the family is still my favorite, but they're all just incredible.

They are all stunning and the attention to detail is amazing!

wow, when you put them all together it is such a powerful peace. I really love them, together, and this one by itself. All are intimate portraits, but different sorts of intimate. :) This one is sexy! >:D

Wow. Just... wow. Amazing.

Wow. They look fabulous and I bet you are feeling very satisfied right now! Excellent work, I just love your use of colour and wrinkles *bows to creased drapery queen*.
