Mina Sanwald - Harry Potter: Bellatrix Lestrange
2014.07.20 Jersey Shore Comic Con, Toms River, NJ
When I decided to attend this show and reviewed the artists in attendance, I knew immediately I wanted to have Mina draw Bellatrix Lestrange. Mina has done a sketch for me in the past, and I really enjoy her style and vibrant color palette.
Since Mina is a big fan of Sailor Moon I thought of Bellatrix in a Sailor Moon anime treatment. I was not disappointed. This almost looks like a fashion design for Bellatrix, evil can still be beautiful on the outside.
Yes, even though Bellatrix is purely evil throughout the Harry Potter movies, her portrayal in the movies is fascinating, you can't take your eyes off her (beside that would not be wise).
