Hermione 04-18-2012 by khinson Hermione 04-18-2012 by khinson
As many of you know, life has been very challenging the last several weeks for my family. This drawing was started on February 29th and was finally finished last night. It's nice to just have something to submit again! I dedicate this drawing to Sophie.

The reference was from Harry Potter wiki website. I have no rights to Hermione or Harry Potter as they belong to their creators.

The original is lighter than the scan.

Time and materials:
14.83 hours
9 x 12 smooth Bristol board cut in half (picture size is 5 x 7 roughly)
Kimberly pencils 2H to 6B
2B, HB and 4B mechanical pencils
.2mm mechanical Staedtler drafting pencil
.3mm mechanical Pentel pencil
kneaded eraser
blending stumps
Kleenex

This is gorgeous - can't believe I missed it! I love the way you've done the blurred highlights in the background and the light hitting her face.
