Characters: Bellatrix
Rating: PG
Media used: Pencil, CG

That's absolutely gorgeous. Massive coincidence, I'm working on a portrait of Bellatrix that uses similar colors, and also features implied nudity (the portrait also reaches down past her bare collarbone).

Fantastic! Love the teeth. (Is that a creepy thing to say? Mine always come out wrong, so I appreciate some good ones. XD)

Teeth are tricky.

Ooooh that's REALLY well done. I love the shadows and curves of her body/bones too...and her eyes barely open. So good! ♥

The only bit of concrit I could give is that the top of her hair looks a bit flat compared to the great detail of her face but the lighting makes up for it so it's not even a big deal at all!

Thank you so much! ♥

Thank you for the concrit, too! I had a reference for the face but not for the hair, so I faked it and hoped for the best. XD But I see what you mean and agree.

I love it — the dark olive palate, the blood coming to pool at the notch at the base of her neck, the ambiguity of context. Heavy lidded, aristocratic, mad. It’s spot on and beautiful.

VERY well done - though I'm not into blood and gore - I still had to comment on the quality of the pic!

OMG! Her eyes!!!!

The light irises under those heavy lids - the extreme angle - the lift in her brow!

WIN!

Yay, I win!

Thank you so much. :) The eyes were the toughest part, so I'm glad you like them. :)

Thank you so much! :) I used a reference -- it wouldn't have looked much like that if it'd been freehand. ^^;

Wow, this is beautiful! I think it's the best piece of fan art I've seen in quite a while. The colors are great, like others have said, and it's a really cool angle and pose. This is going to sound weird, but it's like she's kind of flirting with her own blood. Yeah, that sounds pretty weird.

Wow, thank you! ♥ You just made my evening better by leaps and bounds. :)

Well, maybe it's not so weird when you consider it's Bella, and she's sort of the deputy mayor of Crazytown, so... perhaps not such a stretch? *g*

She's not... eating somebody, is she? Not that I'd be surprised.

I love your dark, intense, creepy as hell HP art.

I don't think she is; she'd probably be a messier eater. *g* (In my head, someone had slapped her in an effort at intimidation, and I could just see her looming over them.)

Thank you. ;_; Marry me? ♥

Definitely it's an ad.

*gasp* How did you know that's exactly what I was thinking when I drew this?!

(More or less.)
