This is my entry for the Art Nouveau fairy tales contest: www.deviantart.com/journal/201… I chose my favouite fairy tale- 'Beauty and the Beast', but I decided to go for an interesting twist- Beauty and the Beast existing in the same person. Blessed by light and cursed by darkness at the same time.
I used my OC Hetta as inspiration for Beauty as she is a complex character- both a heroine and an anti-heroine at the same time.

I based her pose on Mucha's poster for champagne:
www.joieart.net/artwork/spotli… to tie in with the art nouveau theme.

That does make an interesting twist on the story. I like the way you showed that through your drawing. The colors look great and helps with the contrast between the beauty and beast character. I also like how you included the thorns on the darker, beastly side of the character. Wonderful work with this piece.

I think this is first off another beautiful work of art you've created and secondly I love the idea of beauty and the beast existing as the same person

I love the split, its so subtly done but you can see it perfectly without there being a great big line down the middle! The roses are beautiful, and I do like the left side of her dress with its blue roses, and the thorns on that side are great
I think you did a fantastic job with this and allll the colours and details! Good luck with the contest!

Thank you very much, it was a big gamble, especially as I was sooo tired, but I think it definitely was worth it in the end, I was stupidly tried by the time I finished it though! I'm glad you noticed the thorns and the falling petals, it makes it all worth while when someone notices such things! :D

Lol tired to the point of lightheadedness and fuzzy confusion I imagine, but at least you can look back at this in relief and also feel proud that you managed it.  Hooray!  Yes I think it is noticeable, the brown and twisted branch work does show it off as the Beast side of her
