The Beldam (The other mother) from Coraline.
Just a sketch that took me around 4 hours.
Pencil on cold press paper, it's an A4 :heart:

THe button eyes, obviously, but also the lack of real emotion. THe "happiness" always felt forced. Of course, it was, but I would have thought Coraline would see through her world immediately. Guess she's not as intelligent as I thought. Or maybe its that I'm a suspicious person that doesn't trust the monsters to eat me properly. Also, the way that everyone avoids the "other mother's" attention. The beldam is rather creepy. Lastly, the way that Wybie always has his head down is suspicious to me in the "other" world. BTW, great work capturing her final form.

Well you're right, and I think she's not intelligent because she wouldn't have opened the door for Coraline, which was stupid of her but that's just the story… It's a great character anyway, my favourite from Coraline :heart:
And thanks :D

I meant that coraline might be stupid. The other world is a rather elaborate trap.
