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...

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!!
