Beauty and the Beast Christmas

Made for the DisneyDreamers Secret Santa gift exchange. Specifically my gift is for CherishTree. She requested a gift with Beauty and the Beast at Christmas, and she loves the color red. Therefore, I made Belle's dress red.

The scene depicts Belle ice skating with Beast. Most of the trees are covered in Christmas lights, and a sled hints at other winter fun.

Submitted to December Princess of the Month - Christmas

This was one of my most ambitious pieces to date as Beast is about 75% painted. Something totally new for me. This whole piece took me approximately 15 hours.

Belle by Kuoma-stock 
Hair by hellonlegs
I painted the additional red to make long sleeves and white fur on her dress.

Beast head by HOTNStock
Upper Body by Momotte2stocks
Horns by the-night-bird
Tusks by Minotaur-Queen-Stock
Eyes are my own resource
I painted and smudged everything else. Like I said above, about 75% is painted, the animals just gave me a structure to work from.

Background by faestock 
Castle by WDWParksGal-Stock
Holiday Street Lamp by Mom-EsPeace
Ice Skates and Sled by FantasyStock
The frozen pond, all the lights and light effects are painted by me.

Thank You Hug  for the use of your stock!!!

Everything else owned and painted by me using Photoshop.

I'm amazed, we thought so similarly! The composition reminds mine! We used the same model from the same photo session, and a lion head for the Beast! But I never seen your work before! This is awesome, lol)))
I like your beast, he's cute although looks a little childly;) Wonderful Christmas mood here... Lovely work, dear:)

Yes, it is. I've seen it happen with others before, and I know you definitely didn't copy. It's just the classic B&B pose. I was still just learning how to blend things to make a creature at the time. I worked on him for so long, I was just glad when he was done... LOL. My main concentration was on the lighting, and that was what worked best here. Thanks for your sweet comments. But truly, your Beast is wonderful!!!
