Belle Portrait

1K Favourites
Since it is now 100.000 from where I uploaded my "Belle" Painting, and since I could improve meanwhile quite a lot, I decided to do some kind of "Remake" of Belle.
- Not the full painting, I wanted to do something new but keeping the theme of it so I repainted her face completely new as I would paint it today ^^
Of course I've changed quite alot of little things, like her hair, and her dress, etc.
Also the lightening source is different, so I leave it to you if you want to see it as a remake or something new ^^

Hope you like this one!
Technical informations: Used Photoshop CS2 and my Wacom Intous 3 tablet.
For the dress I used some Disney fanarts as references!
For the ones who are interested; Here you can find the Making of of the painting:…

OH MY GOODNESS THIS IS BEAUTIFUL! Now that I have that out of my system, I love the surreal take you took on painting her. All the little wisps that add so much detail but also frame Belle and make her beauty stand out so much more. Then there is the look on her face which is gorgeous. It's like she's trying to determine how to go on ahead with what she is doing. I think she is holding a book so perhaps waiting for some sort of judgement to be placed on her by Beast for her enjoyment of reading? (Even though we know he would never do such a thing) There is a wariness there that was creating by those around her, and I think the best thing about Belle is she doesn't change for society. She doesn't stop reading because others think it's odd. She stays true to who she is and I think you captured that beautifully.
