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.


What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
204 out of 211 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 ! :)

Belle:] Little town
It's a quiet village
Ev'ry day
Like the one before
Little town
Full of little people
Waking up to say:

[Townsfolk:] Bonjour!
Bonjour! Bonjour! Bonjour!

[Belle:] There goes the baker with his tray, like always
The same old bread and rolls to sell
Ev'ry morning just the same
Since the morning that we came
To this poor provincial town
[Baker:] Good Morning, Belle!
[Belle:] 'Morning, Monsieur.
[Baker:] Where are you off to?
[Belle:] The bookshop. I just finished the most wonderful story
about a beanstalk and an ogre and a -
[Baker:] That's nice. Marie! The baguettes! Hurry up! )

[Townsfolk:] Look there she goes that girl is strange, no question
Dazed and distracted, can't you tell?
Never part of any crowd
'Cause her head's up on some cloud
No denying she's a funny girl that Belle

[Man I:] Bonjour
[Woman I:] Good day
[Man I:] How is your fam'ly?

[Woman II:] Bonjour
[Man II:] Good day
[Woman II:] How is your wife?

[Woman III:] I need six eggs
[Man III:] That's too expensive

[Belle:] There must be more than this provincial life

[Bookseller:] Ah, Belle.
[Belle:] Good Morning. I've come to return the book I borrowed.
[Bookseller:] Finished already?
[Belle:] Oh, I couldn't put it down. Have you got anything new?
[Bookseller:] Ha Ha! Not since yesterday.
[Belle:] That's all right. I'll borrow . . . . . this one!
[Bookseller:] That one? But you've read it twice!
[Belle:] Well, it's my favorite! Far off places, daring swordfights,
magic spells, a prince in disguise -
[Bookseller:] If you like it all that much, it's yours!
[Belle:] But sir!
[Bookseller:] I insist.
[Belle:] Well, thank you. Thank you very much!

[Townsfolk:] Look there she goes that girl is so peculiar
I wonder if she's feeling well
With a dreamy far-off look
And her nose stuck in a book
What a puzzle to the rest of us is Belle

[Belle:] Oh, isn't this amazing?
It's my fav'rite part because you'll see
Here's where she meets Prince Charming
But she won't discover that it's him 'til chapter three

[Woman:] Now it's no wonder that her name means "beauty"
Her looks have got no parallel
[Shopkeeper:] But behind that fair facade
I'm afraid she's rather odd
Very diff'rent from the rest of us
[Townsfolk:] She's nothing like the rest of us
Yes, diff'rent from the rest of us is Belle

[LeFou:] Wow! You didn't miss a shot, Gaston! You're the greatest
hunter in the whole world!
[Gaston:] I know.
[LeFou:] No beast alive stands a chance against you. Ha ha ha! And
no girl, for that matter.
[Gaston:] It's true, LeFou. And I've got my sights set on that one.
[LeFou:] Hm! The inventor's daughter?
[Gaston:] She's the one - the lucky girl I'm going to marry.
[LeFou:] But she's -
[Gaston:] The most beautiful girl in town.
[LeFou:] I know, but -
[Gaston:] That makes her the best. And don't I deserve the best?
[LeFou:] Well, of course! I mean you do, but -

[Gaston:] Right from the moment when I met her, saw her
I said she's gorgeous and I fell
Here in town there's only she
Who is beautiful as me
So I'm making plans to woo and marry Belle

[Bimbettes:] Look there he goes
Isn't he dreamy?
Monsieur Gaston
Oh he's so cute
Be still my heart
I'm hardly breathing
He's such a tall, dark, strong and handsome brute

[Man I:] Bonjour!
[Gaston:] Pardon
[Man II:] Good day
[Man III:] Mais oui!
[Matron:] You call this bacon?
[Woman I:] What lovely grapes!
[Man IV:] Some cheese
[Woman II:] Ten yards
[Man IV:] one pound
[Gaston:] 'scuse me!
[Cheese merchant:] I'll get the knife
[Gaston:] Please let me through!
[Woman I:] This bread -
[Man V:] Those fish -
[Woman I:] it's stale!
[Man V:] they smell!
[Baker:] Madame's mistaken.

[Belle:] There must be more than this provincial life!
[Gaston:] Just watch, I'm going to make Belle my wife!

[Townsfolk:] Look there she goes a girl who's strange but special
A most peculiar mad'moiselle
It's a pity and a sin
She doesn't quite fit in
'Cause she really is a funny girl
A beauty but a funny girl
She really is a funny girl
That Belle
