Hermione, The Conquerer

Because Hermione is way cooler than any other character in the Harry Potter universe, I thought "hey, why not make her the main character?". So, I set out to create an image of the cover that would exist if Harry Potter was non-existent and Hermione took it upon herself to take down Voldemort.  Naturally she'd abuse a true time turner to achieve her goals. 
The Composition is based on Frazetta's iconic "Conan, The Barbarian" cover. Part of what makes this a funny spoof is the idea of Ron taking the place of the naked girl at Conan's feet, implying that he's both there to be sexy for the audience, and subservient to Hermione.  

For those interested in watching the timelapse video of me painting this, you can find it at youtu.be/t74YdAf5e3E

If I was better at writing critiques I would certainly put one here. This is a stunning piece of art. Not only are the details extraordinary, but you've mixed such wonderful pieces of cannon together to truly create your own piece. I was not familiar with the cover you based it upon, so I looked it up :-)  I think having Ron clothed gives it a better sense of "direction"...it goes away from the spoof a bit and gives it a bit of serious-ness, as if this could have been the actual work JKR created. I'm sure there are fanfics that have re-done the series with Hermione as the lead, (in fact, pretty sure I've read one). The original colors of red and gold worked perfectly with the Gryffindor theme, and your choice placements for Dobby and Crookshanks is SO cool. Love elf just relaxing on all the destruction, and Crookshanks ready to take on some more enemies :-)  Ron's all smug like "Oh yeah, that's my girl, ain't she bloody awesome?" The background is so soft and fierce at the same time; you struck an amazing balance. Again, it's the details that really make this an outstanding piece; from the texture of fur, to the holes in her cloak and the way her wand sleeve is pushed up so she can move better...I really think you've done an outstanding job.      *I must now go browse your gallery because I don't remember seeing any of your works before hehe*

I recognized the Frazetta parody right away. But why isn't Ron wearing a metal bikini?

And Crookshanks is perfect!

I was tempted to have Ron in a metal thong. Seriously. But it felt way too much like the Hawkeye meme, so I decided to go alternate timeline with it. 

Thank you so much!

I suppose if Ron were in a metal bikini, Hermione would have to be wearing a fur loincloth.

That's true. Then we're getting to some weird fan fic stuff :/
