WOW, like just wooow, this is one of the best Helena Bonham Carter drawing i have ever seen, the technique is amazing, the way the hair is drawn is wonderfully done.

The eyes are the most striking thing i see and it almost makes her eyes look like there blue rather then brown, if that makes sense which i think looks amazing.

apart from the watermark there really is nothing bad to say about this piece, really well done and i hope one day Helena herself will see this epic masterpiece.

keep up the good work and i look forward to seeing more

I am a Harry Potter fan and Bellatrix Lestrange is one of my favorite characters.
I love the angle and the expression, giving it a sadistic, fierce look.
The lines are smooth but also rough, and the shading could go a little darker because some pencil shading are light.
Add some pen shadings on the neck and the hair to give it a realistic effect, but i also love it's simplicity.
When i look at it closely, i see some pencil specks making it a little dirty, but from afar it doesnt seem to notice.
and lastly the lips are a little light, try to add more shading and inking so it will look good.
I love this piece and keep up the good work

You're amazing working with pens! This looks just like her

I like how well you drew the hair. It looks loose,but controlled at the same time

I love how simple, and yet how detailed it is. You capture a bit of Bellatrix's essence in this work, without any color or much shading. I agree that the eyes are absolutely stunning, but so is everything else. :) A wonderful bit of work, keep at it. <3 Riley.
