A STRICTLY DEATH-ONLY DIET.

Bellatrix.

Just a quick one today, gang. This is my contribution to the Harry Potter-themed zine that Alyssa Nassner has been organizing to sell at the upcoming MICA Art Market.

I swear, I wanted to stay away from the dark characters and draw two of my personal favorites, Fred and George, but I just couldn't handle all the smiling. I also made a tremendous effort to stay away from illustrating teary-eyed Draco Malfoy, despite my natural inclination to draw sad-looking but impeccably dressed men. Bellatrix Lestrange was kind of a spontaneous thing, but the deadline was coming up, so I just let it happen. I played around a little with textures and the B&W restriction, though I think the lace and fishnets dated her outfit. At least now we know what Bellatrix would have looked like if she were in an ethereal goth rock band from the 80s.

  1. I'm actually really happy that Fred and George are two of your favorites. And nice BL.

  2. I don't think it looks dated. Just look at the Series of Unfortunate Events movie costumes! she has fishnet sleeves on a dress too. it's awesome. I like this A LOT because it involves Harry Potter.
