Hermione Granger from JK Rowling Harry Potter
probably during Half-Blood Prince
. She is my favourite character in HP, bookworm, down to earth, know-it-all girl with average appearance, kind of like me in high school when the majority of my time was spent in library.
Painting was totally inspired with one of the stock photos from =faestock
, when I saw it I instantly thought of Hermione.
