Belle by Jennyeight Belle by Jennyeight
Hey everyone

I'm new here.
Hope you like my work.
Would be happy to get some comments.

This is my version of Disney's Belle in a more human way.

Edit: If you like this painting, please also have a look at my Jasmine, Ariel, Mulan and Pocahontas:

Hey Jenny,

First of all i'd like to say this is a great work of art, very nice details!

The lightning is very well done, the light makes the image have a warm glow that fits the setting well. I like the idea of the smoke coming of the candles but i think it could be a bit more transparant. The candles may be burning but they don't create smokescreens as far as i know. The other thing that needs a little bit of work are the eyes i think, they are very dark, she can have dark eyes but the white part of the eye should be more visible i think.

Still all in all, this is an amazing piece!
Keep up the great art.

The Artist thought this was FAIR
203 out of 210 deviants thought this was fair.

I love the fact that the colour of the dress complements the scenery, and the colour of her eyes complementing the Mystery in the actual painting itself. Furthermore, The book in her hand gives a human quality but also realisation of the characters personality thus concluding Belle, the book lover. The folds of the dress have been done excellently however the depth of the shadows underneath the dress could have been done better. Moreover, Her features on her face have been done exquisite but there could have been more shadow on the neck as her head is tilted back.

One the whole this Art has received positive criticism and has been done excellently. Its beautiful ! :)
