Pardon the lighting, there is none in my apartment- Bah! I've been working on this Hermoine pic for the past couple of days. I've never used gouache before, so that was an experience. I got the hang of it within the last 5 minutes. I started the concept with a rough sketch (below). Her pose and body shape changed. It made no sense for her to be sitting on a huge book reading a book. I wanted the joke to be that this huge book is "light reading" for her- and the book she was reading was in the way of achieving that.
