Family Portraits - Beauty

This was just for fun :) I've been finishing up the manuscript for "Beauty and the Beast" in between other projects, and I drew a quick portrait of "Beauty" as a child... in the style of one of those old daguerrotype portraits her father would hang onto.

You can see, she didn't change much as she grew up! The pose resemblance was of course intentional:…

Also, I started an instagram! I posted a sketch of little "Beauty" there:

And you can find more process work from "Beauty and the Beast" on my tumblr:…


This was drawn in pencil, and colored with watercolors and in Photoshop.

Follow me on twitter for more updates:

I can't wait to see more of Beauty and the Beast. From the images I'm sure your version is going to be a favorite.

Can't wait for your version of 'Beauty and the Beast'! One of my favorite fairy tales, along with 'The Little Mermaid' (not the Disney movie, of course :D). Good luck for the project, Abigail!!!

I like the balance between "roughed up" and "elegant" in her outfit. Also, the sepia tone.
