Bookshop Belle by gwendybee Bookshop Belle by gwendybee
Super long time no see, everyone! :heart: I've been so busy with fun and unfun stuff that I've totally neglected my dA gallery. But at last, I've managed to finish this picture, and I'm super excited to share it with everyone! Belle is one of my favorite Disney Princesses, and I'm so glad I've finally gotten the chance to draw her. x) And just in time for me to add this picture to my prints list for my January Artist Alley adventures!

This is definitely another one of the most labor-intensive backgrounds I've done. It's good to challenge yourself by drawing things outside your comfort zone, like furniture/architecture/clutter, but I think I'm going to keep the next picture or two I do light in the background area. =P I promise the next pictures won't take nearly this long! I'm hoping to get one deviation done every 1-2 months.

As always, feedback and constructive criticism are greatly appreciated!

And lastly, if you have a Tumblr, I've posted this picture over here. Likes and reblogs are both greatly appreciated! :heart:

1) Thanks! I'm really glad you like it.
2) "Any tips" is too vague for me to answer, haha. If you ever get a chance to swing by one of my Livestreams, I'd be happy to talk about how I'm doing what I'm doing. Otherwise, my general advice is to study the basics of art (anatomy, composition, perspective, color theory) to have a good foundation, and study specific artists you really like to try to figure out what it is you like about what they do, and how you can use that to improve your own stuff. Try new things! You'll fail a lot and most of it will look terrible, but you'll learn a lot from trying and that will help you grow.

She'd marry you. Right? I'm pretty sure that's what happened to the Beast in the movie.
(Sorry for the slow response!)
