2012 Fairytale Project: Beauty and the Beast







































I had a bit of a hard time getting started on Beauty and the Beast, but once I found my way into it I really loved drawing and painting this scene.  I loved playing with the glowy light and I've become awfully fond of these two characters.  Thank you again to June for suggesting Beauty and the Beast.

I think for May I might do The Snow Queen, by Hans Christian Andersen.  But, for now I'm off to a glass of chai tea, sketching some otters, and working on promo stuff.  Happy Wednesday!

  2. This came out lovely. I love that beast seems to have a slightly worried look as if Beauty made him nervous.
