Beauty And The Beast

Some pieces are an absolute dream to work on, where the bringing together of stylus and pixels is a joy to perform.

This was not one of them. This was hell incarnate. This was a project doomed from the beginning, beset by damaged hard drives, damaged file and temperamental Photoshop failures during its full 8 month progress. I refuse to be beaten by 2000x3000 pixels so I finished it, through every scratch disc error and lost save.

The aim was to create a pair of images based on Beauty and the Beast, specifically the version of the "I'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That)" music video (don't you judge me!).

A true fairy tale romance if i ever saw one.

It's just like the video for I'd Do Anything For Love.

The Beast even resembles the one Meatloaf played in the video.

Wonderful how you did this piece. The first two are lovely, but this one is by far the best of all three drawings. :nod:

That's fantastic! I'm so glad you preservered through all the irritating computer problems. It's a wonderful piece. Nice choice to monochrome it as well.
Hopefully, ~Cobweb-stock won't roll his eyes at the Meatloaf connection. (He's always being likened to him. LOL!!!)

Very nice, I like how you merged the stained glass style with the art nouveau style, while still managing to keep your style obvious in the piece.

Having seen Meat Loaf's music video for "I would do anything for love," I can really see how you drew from it for inspiration.
