Beauty and the Beast Project: Round One

One Sister
Belle's Father
Asylum owner


Character Lineup

For the rest of the semester in Advanced Character design we were assigned (2 or 3 weeks ago) to do a story of our choosing.  We could write our own or use an existing story that we like.  I am using a combination of the original Beauty and the Beast story and the Disney version to come up with a darker story starting with the Beast's death.
I will be posting a synopsis once I have a coherently written version!
Here is the first batch of characters after a few weeks of sketching and critiquing

Pan's Labyrinth Environment WIP: Round Two

Two different view of the Labyrinth (overhead and entrance)
Really large version of brain coral, which has a natural maze pattern to it. Super cool.

Pan's Labyrinth Environment WIP

Started working on a real version of the previously posted thumbnails
Will have a finished (well presentable) piece up by the end of the week and thumbnails for another environment!


This is Faye.

Those are some expression studies

Assignment for "getting to know a character"
I plan on fixing up the turn around a bit and hopefully finding time to add some color to her
Also want to keep exploring her face when I have free time (what is that?) so as to keep working on character consistency

Environment Master Copy- James Aaron Finch

Beautiful Princess and the Frog concept art by James Aaron Finch
 Hilarious "blind" copy done after studying the image for about 10 seconds and then not being allowed to reference it
Copy while actually getting to reference the image (well as far as I got in an hour. Cursed foliage)

Doing things like this definitely helps the learning process I think (this was an in class assignment so I would hope it was a good learning process! hah.)

Buried Alive WIP

I realized I have been posting a lot of concept art/character design work lately and I wanted to put up a work in progress of an illustration I am also working on
It is for a reader's digest story about someone being buried alive
It's been a few months since I've full on digitally painted something so this should be interesting!

Throwing some fan art your way!
Find myself constantly drawing fan art when I'm lacking in motivation but I never post it here so... here we are
Tiana and Charlotte belong to Disney of course (as well as the Princess and the Frog logo)

Illusionism Final

Part of my illusionism final, there is a character compliment to this and then a full illustration using them both
This is mostly done, the others are in the stages of sketch/drawing and half completed (relatively speaking) so i shall post them next week

I am newly dubbing this a work in progress because I really do want to go back into it. unfortunately the file is still... well corrupted so it looks like I'll have to paint back into this one without my layers. But I really want to finish it to the extent that I really wanted it done

Environment Concept

For my concept art class we had to redesign one of our favorite stories
I chose to redesign the original written version of Beauty and the Beast
I changed the race of character into an elven race
Due to Belle's father losing his riches they are forced to move into the forest and live there.  Events that would follow remain true to the original story just in a different setting/for slightly different reasons (nothing major)
we had to redesign one character and one environment so here is the environment (I will post character stuff later, as well as the original concepts and sketches that go with this piece)
