Both a Little Scared Neither One Prepared by djeffers123 Both a Little Scared Neither One Prepared by djeffers123
Being the Disney fanatic I am, naturally, I'm super excited for the live action Beauty and the Beast film coming out this March. I'm loving everything I'm seeing from this film. I've even grown to really love the "new" yellow dress, it's just so elegant and I love how the skirt looks like petals and I find ti very flattering on Emma Watson.  

Btw, when I was in High School about two years ago, they were putting on Beauty and the Beast as the fall musical and I offered to create the poster for the event to my choir teacher and she turned me down.... wonder if she'd regret that now...  Beauty and the beast - Princess Belle - Icon  

Let me know what your thoughts are, or what I could maybe draw next!! Chip1

:D (Big Grin)  Aw, this is so... romantic, charming, beautiful and magnificent. Heart Heart 

I really enjoyed the new Disney live-action remake of the animated Beauty and the Beast. And Emma Watson (who starred in Harry Potter franchise) makes a perfect real-life re-imaged and portrait of my favorite Disney Heroine, Belle.

It really is heartwarming. ;)

Thank you very much, I would love to possibly remake this sometime in the future, but I still do like this piece a lot. The big thing I'd change is that throughout this dance Belle and Beast are falling in love, and this exact moment with the low dip is the moment in the movie when they switch from a nervous and unprepared vibe to a united and confident one. I'd really love to show that more. 

And I agree with you 100%! I absolutely loved the changes they made and the depth they added to the characters as well as the story. Emma Watson was such an amazing Belle who was complicated and interesting. I also really loved the message about being different and how it's okay to be yourself.

You're very much welcome, my friend. ;)

I sincerely hoped that more pictures of Belle and Beast will be made someday. I'm crossing my fingers for it.

Emma Watson said that after the Beast and Belle get married that she'd want Belle to open up the castle library to everyone, I thought that sounded so forward thinking and perfect for her character. I'd be interested in a story centered around the Sorceress.

I have my own Beauty and the Beast adaptation and in mine, the Sorceress takes on a more sinister and larger role in the story. The Sorceress curses the prince, Nathaniel, out of spite since he does not lover her. The curse is also different, making Nathaniel grow more Beastlike as someone falls for him, turning everyone away from that potential love that could break the spell. That's the current plan at least, the curse has undergone all sorts of changes. Giggle

I thought that Belle is scared, she thinks "now i have to rely on his strenght, because he holds me and he leans towards me, what if he kisses me, what will happen, it's thrilling" or something like these.

Not going to lie, I was staring at that dress the entire time basically, but that's just the big lover of costumes that I am taking over. haha

I do remember those moments of her being unsure, yet okay with that and still going for it. I think the dance was a perfect time to have them truly start to fall head first because it's a team effort.

Personally, I think the moment when Belle truly determines that she's in love with Beast is when the Beast lets her go. She walks away with the mirror after being freed, but then she turns around for another glace (which is sign of love usually in films and such) and you can see the tears in her eyes and how much she doesn't want to go, but she knows that she must for her father.

I saw the film once, so I don't remember everything, like that part you said. My favorite kind of movies are those where they wear costumes. :)

Sorry, I've seen the film three times, so I'm a know it all. I really love movies, so I try really hard to pay attention to the deeper meanings of why certain things are done they way they are or how this scene fits the plot. I blame the fact that I myself am a storyteller. 

And same, I love costumes! I wish there were more movies at such a grand scale as the recent live action Disney films.

Thank you very much, her dress took the most time to shade and detail. That skirt is a light airy three tiered beauty with a bunch of embellishments and patterns, but it was kind of a nightmare to recreate. I still loved every second of it though. :D (Big Grin)

I really wanted to capture the likeness, but I feel I could have done better. I want to get better with likeness in general, but I do love how it turned out. I think the hard work most certainly shows!

Oh so am I, and same! Frozen took the number 1 spot for a while, but Beauty and the Beast is better in my opinion on every single level. I have faith that it will end up being a beautiful thing that pays homage to the original. I'm especially excited for the new songs, one sounds so sweet and beautiful!

I wasn't loving Belle's yellow dress at first, but it's severely growing on me and I'm actually beginning to love it more than the one Cinderella war. I just love how the dress is subtle, but then she's got that gorgeous necklace, the pinkie ring, the odd ear loop decal, and the shoes with feathers on them. It suits her personality beautifully in my opinion.

I wish I was the genius behind them, but alas, I just drew what I saw. I tried to get the details of the skirt as close as possible, but there's not many pictures to go off of, so I at least tried to keep the style the same. 

I really wanted to capture the dainty light material of the skirt, and the shading took FOREVER!! It took me about 3-4 hours to do Belle alone. Nod Run Away
