HARRY POTTER Portrait: Bellatrix Lastrange

This is a Harry Potter themed digital painting. The subject is Bellatrix Lestrange in a textured style with an authentic canvas look to the painted surface. The canvas texture is actually Conte Crayon paper with old weathered plaster and a bit of rust added into the mix. I wanted a darker feeling to this painting. It seemed fitting to alter the style a bit for one of the villains.

After much revising, I have finished another Harry Potter themed painting. The subject is Bellatrix Lestrange. This time I shifted the style to a more textured approach and worked at creating a more authentic canvas look to the painted surface. The canvas texture is actually Conte Crayon paper with old weathered plaster and a bit of rust added into the mix. I wanted a darker feeling to this painting. It seemed fitting to alter the style a bit for one of the villains. 

Eventually, I plan to use these paintings as samples to show to publishers for possible book or game illustration commissions. It helps to show that you can re-create a style for a variety of subjects. In the mean time I am just having fun.
I will say this, Helena Bonham Carter has a unique look. A perfect partner for Tim Burton, she looks like she could walk right out of one of his movies. She was an excellent subject to paint.
