Continuing a theme of master studies redone as Disney Princesses... this is Belle, from Beauty and the Beast, based on "Madame Paul Sigisbert Moitessier" by Ingres [link]
As an aside - the original of this painting hangs at the National Gallery in Washington, DC. I've visited and loved her forever <3

Other Disney Princesses:
Snow White - [link]
Jasmine - [link]

Hey Jessica! I was just reading an article about Belle's dress in the recent film and saw that they mentioned this design! I wanted to link it to you just in case they didn't

She's my favorite princess.
I enjoy how you went for a more 1840's feel as opposed to 1770's; I find the latter to be more common when doing historically accurate Belles, and this is very beautiful and refreshing!

I think this is my favorite of your Disney Princesses. This style fits Belle. And I love the dress.

Gorgeous! Something seems a bit odd about the front of her dress versus the positioning of her upper body but that could just be my imagine. Incredible detail, I wish I had half as much skill!

I always imagined belle to be French
Very beautiful and charming! I really like the colors and fullness of the character without following the skinny is better.
Very Well Done!!!
