I know I said I wouldn't do these anymore, but OH WELL. Redux of Sydney Kendrick's A Winter Rose, obviously aptly named. Couldn't pass up the opportunity !
There's a step by step on my blog : www.missholly.fr/2015/01/my-ha…

EDIT : yes it's Belle :) Can you spot the Beast ?

EDIT 2 : Woah a DD !!! Thank you !!! <3

Why would you say that you aren't going to do these anymore?  I mean if you're tired of doing them, then by all means take a break until they're fun again, but they're always such charming drawings.

It was more linked to the fact that they're extremely long to do :) But I've done others in my other style since then, indeed.

So ... how about, when you have time and feel like it.  That would be a good rule.

Anyway, thank you for sharing.

 I love the Studio Ghibli movies like Howl's Moving Castle that show Victorian attire and architecture in such rich colorful detail. This picture imparts the same effect. it could easily serve as a vintage greeting card. The Christmas season is full of movies based on the Charles Dickens novels. Gazing at this picture is like reading a novel by Dickens or Charlotte Bronte or Jane Austen. I even feel more civil and more erudite.

 blessed and joyous Christmas and Advent season to you and your loved ones by the way
