Beauty and the Beast by TGB-illustrations Beauty and the Beast by TGB-illustrations
My interpretation of Beauty and the Beast. I tried to come with a "look" that I hadn't seen used before and used Regency England as my inspiration.

Awesome job! Reminds me to never judge a book by its cover. :)

Had the same idea for my own work! But it's the 2011 Jane Eyre version I've recently discovered that gave me the inspiration. This "look" is perfect to me for this tale.

I really like how she sits in front of the portrait, totally oblivious to it, all her attention on the "beast".

I feel like the expressions on their faces would be the hardest thing to capture in a scenario like this, and yet the faces are what I like the best about it! Bravo!

Wow! The Beast is quite intimidating here. The expression on Beauty's face is lovely, she is interested in him and doesn't seem scared in the least. I really love the small antique details you put into the wall paintings. It is a great piece.

Thank you so much! Really glad you liked it :)I always try to come up with an original idea - originally i was going to use an Elizabethan setting and a reptilian Beast. Im glad I went with this one!!!

“She laughed at him then, because he sounded like a small boy, not like a very large grown-up Beast with a voice so deep it made the hair on the back of your neck stir when you heard it. 'But vegetables are good for you,' she said, and added caressingly, 'They make you grow up big and strong.'

He smiled, showing a great many teeth. 'You see why I wish to eat no more vegetables.”

This is fantastic artwork! That portrait of the human prince is the perfect touch. I like the presence of a book on the table, a nod to Disney's bibliophile.

Stunning! Your Belle is gorgeous, and your Beast is truly beastly. I love how they look like they care so much about each other. And it's a nice touch having the painting of the Beast as he was in human form in the background. Fantastic!

:) Although I enjoy many Disney films I get so frustrated when people take them to be the "definitive" version of a classic which is why I always refer to the classic texts for inspiration. Glad you liked it! :)
