A Most Peculiar Mademoiselle by Hanami-Mai A Most Peculiar Mademoiselle by Hanami-Mai
Finally! After artblock, overwork, hand pain and internet crash, I've finnaly finished the next in my Disney Princesses illustration series! Beauty and the Beast's Belle! :la:

Belle is one of my favourite Disney princesses (I totally relate with her love for books! ^^). Her dress was, for some reason, terribly hard to come up with. And it turned out much more victorian-ish than rococo, but I like the fact it actually escaped the most common style choice for redesign (since the movie is somewhat set in the 18th century France). For the color of the dress, I was in doubt between the classical golden yellow from the movie or a soft butter cream tone... In the end, gold looked much better, so I went further and made it an "antique gold", almost bronze - so the picture would get the "Old Fairytale Book" style I wanted for the series.

Painting the roses was lovely! :meow:

For the next princess in the series, I'm in doubt between Ariel and Jasmine (both currently in the sketch step)... Votes? ^^ 


:rose: Detail shot from her face and roses in my blog: maihanami.blogspot.com.br/ :rose:


Other princesses so far:

I like your hair's design better then the Disney one. It looks more down to earthy like Belle is.

Thank you! I really like her hair in her first blue (peasant) outfit, so I used it as an inspiration, with the ballgown. ^^

How do you believe changing from Rococo to Victorian affects the way the story is told?
