Beauty and the Beast

For the last two weeks, I’ve been working on an illustration for Beauty and the Beast. The classic version is found here. I also researched apparently it was a story about losing your innocence. Of course it can’t be summed up like that, but Beast is sort of like the choice for Beauty to make. In some countries, Beast is depicted as a snake, but mostly he isn’t described and is left entirely up to the reader. My Beast came from that information and Bahamuth, so he is a beast-dragon. I left the horns on. Beast in Disney is kind of like some kind of Bull.

    Interesting. I don’t have a chance to read some of these original stories until you post the links.

    Great drawings as always!

    Thanks… yeah. Haha… Well, I actually think that Disney did a pretty good job on this one. They did take out the jealous sisters, but you saw more of what’s inside the castle. And Beast in the original is kinda lame… imho.
