The Beast's Castle by kelseymichele The Beast's Castle by kelseymichele
Part of my thesis series: a retelling of Beauty and the Beast.

for the Beast's castle, i was primarily looking at a lot of Russian influences, specifically palaces and cathedrals, though i kind of wanted to eliminate the coldness. the greenhouse/conservatory was really important to me as in the story it holds such an abundance of flora and fauna, most of which the Beauty has never seen before.

Prints of this are now available here!

I was looking for a visual reference for a story I am writing with druid-y elves. I never would have considered a Russian influence on my own - probably in part because of the coldness you mention - but the colors and organic shapes in this image are a perfect inspiration.

This is absolutely great! What a big and luminous castle! I was tired of the old, grim one ;)

Simply stunning. The combination of the architecture of Russia with the warmth of a European summer is just glorious.
