Tale As Old As Time by PandorasJukebox Tale As Old As Time by PandorasJukebox
This took me so much more time than it should've. :faint: I really liked how the sketch turned out and I had no problems with the lineart but oh my god the colouring took forever. I can't even remember how many times I just wanted to give up on the whole thing.
It's actually really weird how this is my first Disney fanart, since I've been a fan for 14 years (since age 3 XP).

I tried to give Belle's original dress a bit more of Rococo-spirit but with those low shoulder straps and all it looks like something from the mid-1800's. Also, I totally fail at drawing panniers from the side view.
There are lots of mistakes in this picture which I was too lazy to fix, but I'm really glad I finally got this done and get to work on my other stuff.

Hello! I am a graphic designer working for a small university. This year our Theatre department is doing Beauty and the Beast. We have received artwork and permission from Disney to use in our playbill, but none of it is the kind of thing I'm looking for. Would it be possible to use your "Tale As Old As Time"? We wouldn't be able to pay for the use, but I would gladly give you credit in the playbill. I'm sorry, I'm unfamiliar with Deviantart and how it works. I'm able to download a high enough resolution copy of the piece I'd like to use, but I didn't want to use it without your permission. Thanks much for your time!

Oh! And I think your artwork is fantastic!!

wow, this is really nice :D And the background is really well done. I myself hate backgrounds, never have the patience to do them... Belle´s face and hair is really lovely :3

Tulin sanattomaksi! Ihanat noi Bellen mekon rypytykset, muutenkin valaistukset ja kaikki! *v* <3

Suvi...this is just phenomenal! The background is beautiful; the Beast's fur is shaded wonderfully; the

rose is gorgeous; the ambiance is perfect and I just love how you drew Belle. Exquisite, my dear :heart:
