Do not touch the Roses by InkyRose Do not touch the Roses by InkyRose
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.
