The Beast by Gildhartt The Beast by Gildhartt
Photoshop CS2, a week of work (ca. 25 hours). No reference used (which I'm particularly proud of ^^ ).

"Beauty and the Beast" is my all-time favourite Disney movie. I've re-watched it lately and felt a strong urge to draw some decent fan-art with Beast in it. Isn't he simply adorable? =D

not really, it's that moment in the animated movie when he saved Belle from the wolves in the forest outside the castle.

He looks amazing and fierce it's so intense! Those trees are fantastic and I love the little splashes of crimson throughout.

Beautiful! It is awesome when you can recall a scene or moment and draw from it--with no actual physical reference to be used. I particularly love how you made the trees. I know it is not supposed to be the main focus, but I really like the rough and fairytale-styled theme you used with them.

I don't know if anyone else noticed it, but you managed to give the piece an overall scary feel until you look into his eyes. Even though they are red, his facial features give a more hurting detail. This is simply incredible. Thank you for creating this.

Oh.My.God. This is so wonderful to look at. The intensity in his eyes, the little bit of red as the only amount of color. (As I totally overlook the fact that his eyes are blue, but whatever, it's awesome.) Your details are killer and just alskdjfapo *stares at art*

I simple adore the use of greys, whites and blacks. Then just the small splashes of red, it makes the picture seem so damn epic. Good God, the detail in his fur, the trees, the snow, the cloak...everything is just amazing! LOVE IT :w00t:
