Dusting off and brushing up my "Beauty and the Beast" designs - and the manuscript as well. I've finally found enough time in between projects to finish working on the story and artwork. I hope to be able to share more of it soon!

This piece was drawn in pencil and colored in Photoshop.

Just now stumbled upon this, but man does this spark memories. Your depiction of beast looks very familiar. It reminds me a super old version of the fairy tale I watched when I was a kid. Sadly I haven't been able to find it since. :c

For me it sparks memories, not of a show, but of a book I use to have. It was a more faithful adaptation of the fairy tale than Disney, and it came with a cassette tape, and for years I've wanted to find it, but I've never been able to. I keep meaning to ask my mother if any of my old books are put away in the attic. Knowing my mother as I do, I can't believe that she would send my old books to a garage sale or Goodwill; not without asking me first. It was one of my favorite books, and this made me all wistful again.

I'd love a new Beauty and the Beast movie. But no Disney crap. Maybe a Guillermo del Toro or Tarsem Singh.

I made them up, actually! They're loosely based on late Victorian evening-wear. His coat with the wide lapels and long tail, and her wearing a long-sleeved bodice and bustle are styles you'd find in the Victorian era, but when they're fantasy characters, I like to embellish them a bit :)

I get lots of inspiration from tumblr costume blogs:

My imaginary friends for years were monsters and ghosts. I've always had a special connection to Beauty and The Beast that way.
