Bellatrix Lestrange by ellaine Bellatrix Lestrange by ellaine
She was such a fun to draw!
This picture was inspired by the scene in The Order of the Phoenix when she.... you know...

And yes, her facial features are a bit exaggerated and deformed, but it's on purpose since I wanted her to look a bit insane :D.

Mediums: Pencil sketch + Painter 8

And yes, full view would be much appreciated as always^_^

Bellatrix is J.K. Rowling

Wow I really like this! You did an awesome interpretation of the after-Azkaban Bellatrix, the insanity in person sometimes.
I feel a bit disquietude from this art, which means you've done a great job!

Your take on Bellatrix reminds me of Lust's design in Fullmetal Alchemist. :)

Everyone's interpretation of Bellatrix Lestrange >>> Helena's clown like portrayal.

I wouldn't think that's how Rowling intended her to be either.

Amen to that. My favourite versions of Bellatrix gotta be Mary GrandPre's original illustration (…), roby-boh's (…) , jovaline's (…) and several other. This one looks pretty too.

She is a little like Yuuko Ichihara, despite that Yuuko isn't evil.
Bellatrix is beautiful yet malice. You gave that right. ^^

This is very beautiful art, there is something about the style of drawing that reminds me of the japanese film "Spirited Away".

This is fantastic! She looks so smug! :)

You said it was exagerated.. I've never seen you're other art, so I don't know the comparison. But you could've made her look even more insane, maybe. But I also like that you sort of captured her in a relatively calm moment... very nice overall :D
Necropheka Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2009
Woah...she's really insane...MUAHAHAA! :D

No zakochałam się w Twoich pracach, jakby nie patrzeć... A Bella pasuje do Snape'a pod względem wizualnym. Do Voldzia nie, bo brzydki:D

AnyLuck Featured By Owner May 28, 2007
Ah, this is Bellatrix; indeed, she is, just like I always imagined her in the books. Lovely piece -- gloomy and beautiful. I love her expression -- you can see the cruelty she is famous for. Amazing!
SeveruSeprentine Featured By Owner May 3, 2007
Nah, her face fits her perfect *shouts at Bella* FOX-KILLER! :pissed:

She needs must die! She killed Sirius, a Fox, and she's trying to blow Snape's cover... *grabs Snape* but he tis mine, dang it!
Frostwingx Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2007
Wow, you sure did make her look the sexy female villain like I also imagined her to be! Great job!!

Swietny wyraz twarz! Mam slabosc do tej postaci po 6 czesci, rozczula mnie sama idea o niej i Cissy jako o siostrach. Choc generalnie lubie ja sobie wyobrazac z delikatna uroda, tak dla kontrastu do jej charakterku ;)
Ryua Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2006  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh, wow. She looks SO cool! Very insane...
ninaclaww Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2006
Okay, I've looked at this pic probably 500 times in the past 2 days...and finally I am unable to reists the urge to comment/fave it.

The composition is is the coloring, and the characterization is peeeerfect.

Woo Bella!

I like it. The face seems kind of accurate, to me. ^^

plus I LOVE Bellatrix Lestrange. Woo.

this is a beautiful piece!! i think you truly captured what Bella is... and that's just mad!
sasoriza-chan Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2005
YEAH! It's great to see someone draw Trix' the way she really looks insted of this raveing beauty. Woman was crazy before 15 years in Azkaban and looked like a Sirus as a woman. I think you do her good.
ellaine Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2005
Thank you very much, I'm glad that you like my version of her. I wanted to make her look slightly mad in the first place. And indeed, I don't imagine her as a beautiful woman - her looks should only remind that she was beautiful before Azkaban.
