Beauty and The Beast by faxtar Beauty and The Beast by faxtar
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]

Absolutely stunning. It captures the desperate, tragic, beautiful mood of the scene.

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.

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 :)
