My entry for LMS. Its beauty and the beast, I illustrated the part from the the story "When Belle returns to the Beast's castle late, she finds him dying in his rose garden, his broken heart killing him." (from the wiki entry) [link] I figured his castle should be dying as well, breaking into small pieces that fly into the sky and being over run by fast growing plants. Beast is based on the mythical creature The Manticore [link]

This is SO beautiful!!! I love how they are non-disney..... this story was around before that! Non traditional, in a traditional way.... great job
this is weird but amazing
Absolutely stunning. It captures the desperate, tragic, beautiful mood of the scene.
I adore this absolutely wonderful!
i lovr this
i really like this
So tragic and beautiful
I love this piece! you captured this moment perfectly!
i absolutely love the way you depicted the beast. the colors and mood of this piece are just breathtaking. Well done.
beautiful and so heartfelt
I really love this one! I like the soft colors and the wonderful setting...everything is fantastic
I love the huge stature of the Beast, and the dark background colors that make Belle really pop.
This is beautiful, and I really appreciate how you made your own Beast, opossed to going with a more generic, more human depiction of him.
Here via the link from The Illustrated Word. This is STUNNING artwork and I really appreciate your take on the tale! I know where my daydreams will take me today.
What an awesome take on this story! I love how the Beast's wings compliment Belle's dress. The archway is a great touch too, especially how you have the roots growing only over the half of the Beast's face that the Beast himself is under whereas the half of the face above Belle is more human and clear of brush. All these extra additions and thoughts behind the composition really make this piece shine! Thank you for sharing your work! =^)
This is so beautiful. I get so tired of the Disney stuff not that any of it is bad, but it's nice to see something different now and again
this is gorgeous. i absolutely love it <3
