Said suggestions may be posted wherever you see the above image on Instagram, Facebook or here on this blog.

Alas, I’m continuing with the 8-hour sessions rather than the 24-hour ones because I’m busy with other stuff.

Beauty and the Beast

Black India Ink and watercolor on watercolor paper.
12.7 cm x 17.8 cm (5.00 in. x 7.00 in.)
 Re: the 2017 live-action treatment of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast: I liked it.

Black India Ink watercolor paper.
In this concept for poster, I was inspired by the marketing piece painted by Drew Struzan for the 1991 animated feature. The style is inspired by Art Deco designers like Alphonse Mucha. Compositionally, I wanted to vignette away details the farther they were from the faces, which is why Belle’s arm just disappears. The likenesses aren’t 100% spot on, I’ll admit.
