Excellent. I like to see different animals used for the "beast"design. I find this one a pretty fascinating one in fact. It reflects the gentle yet at the same time can be perceived intimidating, much like the animals used for inspiration. Great touching art
oh wow, thanks! the work that is up for this series was actually all that my thesis consisted of (since i only worked on it for a semester rather than a full year), but its possible that i would do more illustrations from this story. i had a lot in mind when i began the project and simply didn't have the time to do them all.
I love these pictures and simply cannot believe the nobody has commented on them. Beautiful work, lovely remaining of the characters. It's hard to see beyond the immensely popular Disney version and you've done it spectacularly.
thank you very much! i had a lot of fun doing this project since the original story is so close to my heart, though of course there was a lot of not fun involved too (deadlines!). i'm just glad you appreciate it. ^-^
