I have always loved fairy tales in my childhood. Although they all end happily ever after, they bring a world of fantasy and imagination to my life. I didn't start with the Disney version of fairy tale for most of them. I started with Grimm's version of fairy tale and then later on watched the Disney movies so I'm more influenced by Grimm's.
This is my version of Belle from Beauty and the Beast. I've always seen her as an innocent girl who loves what is inside the heart and not the appearance. I wasn't sure if I've portrait it enough to look like belle without telling you but in the original version, the only key items were the mirror, the ring, and roses. I think the hardest thing to draw was the castle. It was so long to draw it XD. lol! Hope you like it!
Never did I like Belle until now XD She looks so beautiful and I love her eyes so much. Such beauty and depth. I really admire her hair, I think it's a wonderful hair style. The castle looks marvelous (I thought I'd add since it took you the longest to do)
