Voldemort and Bellatrix

First a big 'Thank You' to lala_kamiturugi who bought me a rose, I'm so lucky to have you as a friend ^_^ ♥

After the works by the brothers Van Eyck.
The two drawings are meant to be seen as a diptych: two paintings which can be closed together. When opening the paintings Voldemort's wand points directly at Bellatrix, who holds her mask defensively in front of her. I tried to make Bellatrix look human, someone who has suffered from those years in Azkaban, someone who has gone mad but still has enough sense to know it.

This was made for the Riddle fest hosted by Mieronna, as a gift for Flesh-dress.

Sorry for my absence lately, I still love the books and I will come back, but at the moment I'm so very tired. I just need a break for a while. I hope you understand.

Much love and a big hug ♥

jesus, this is such a rich painting. even though its stark. the geometry, the mute pain, the formality.

I absolutly LOVE this fanart!! It is beautiful in its own bare way. Did that make sense? It look like one of the paintings you see in art exibitions...
I'm saving it to just look at it. :D

This is an eerie and beautiful painting! Voldemort's face is truly frightening -- his souless eyes and a mouth that looks like the grin of a skull. Fantastic!

Thank you so much for sharing your lovely artwork with us!

I don't think I've ever seen Voldemort look so scary. I'm actually afraid of looking at his eyes. Amazing.

WOW. Gorgeous. It really does appear to have so much depth that it might be a diptych. Quite excellently rendered, this.

I love the lines so telling around Bella's eyes.

This is amazing. It is very reminiscent of those diptychs from the masters! I love that you've given them both rather sad expressions as well. It makes them both seem that much more human (and voldemort more human than usual!). This piece is outstanding.

Also, take all the time you need. It can get pretty hectic, so take care of yourself. :)

Whoa.

Somehow you managed to find a bit of humanity in Voldemort, still. He's still scary. Bellatrix looks very tortured.

I've missed you! I hope life calms down for you!

Everything means

Oh, god! I can completely see the Van Eyck in this, even with my limited art experience! It's gorgeous. The shape and colors in Bellatrix's face are amazing.

Wow. I love this image so very much. The contrast between the colors, the poses, the faces, the wonderful hands - it really captures your eye, and doesn't really let it go. It's got an unsettling, eerie feeling to it that is just brilliant. ♥
