Super long time no see, everyone! 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. 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!

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.
(Sorry for the slow response!)
Lovely work too
And all that long work sure paid off! You're welcome~
And haha, yes she is! Beauty and the Beast is one of Disney's finest. <3
I know right? The movie was one of Disney's most flawlessed ones; Perfect story, perfect main character, perfect romance (in most Disney movies, the pair usually tend to fall inlove rather...quickly. But in BatB, they shown such a heartfelt and emotional journey between Belle and the Beast ), perfect villain (Gaston was pretty damn funny at times. ) perfect...everything. <3
...Sorry, i'm fangirling. And haha, me too! Though, I memorized most songs of the Disney movies lol. Each song was a part of my childhood~.
Pretty! The coloring and shading are awesome. And all those books in the background!
