Belle by JessiBeans Belle by JessiBeans
Continuing a theme of master studies redone as Disney Princesses... this is Belle, from Beauty and the Beast, based on "Madame Paul Sigisbert Moitessier" by Ingres [link]
As an aside - the original of this painting hangs at the National Gallery in Washington, DC. I've visited and loved her forever <3

Other Disney Princesses:
Snow White - [link]
Jasmine - [link]

Photoshop CS5 with Wacom Intuos 4
About 15 hours over several days

When I saw that drawing I instantly felt the power of Ingres in it! that's a very beautiful artwork!
Ingres is a painter of my hometown. :)

It's refreshing to see such a successful modern interpretation of Neoclassicism!  Nod 
Digital art is often all muddled into one big blur of the same style, or emulation of the same type of styles, over and over.. and over...

Great decision to change the damask wallpaper and accessories to a contrasting blue! Love your work, very inspiring! Keep it up! Dance!

I have been watching this series since you put the first one up and my God they are fantastic each time! I cannot image the hours and hours of work it takes in order to complete each of these. 

I won't lie (this is the one I've really been dying to see) Belle is my favorite Princess and you have done her beyond justice. The detail in the gown the light in the face and the eyes. Sweet and somewhat innocent without that strand of nativity you can still see the intelligence within. 

Is this a print can this become a print? I would love to have this in my house! :D

OH, she's my favorite! The way you have framed her is like a portrait of royalty that painters would do in the olden days - she looks very posed. I love how you put her in the classic yellow dress we see her in in the film, but you've made it much more beautiful and a much more golden, marigold hue. The roses in her hair are so appropriate for Beauty and the Beast, and her face is exquisite.
