Disney Signature Collection - BEAUTY AND THE BEAST by davidkawena Disney Signature Collection - BEAUTY AND THE BEAST by davidkawena
"Bittersweet and strange, Finding you can change, Learning you were wrong."

Prince Adam and Belle - 'Beauty and the Beast'

Both movie and theme song - holds one of the most powerful and beautiful message Disney ever gave us.
The unparalleled brilliance of Howard Ashman and Alan Menken managed to illustrated in one song what we try to teach ourselves for years.

I really love this Art work!
The scene is magical, and you draw the caracters exactly as they appear in the movie!
The expressions, the posture, ... everything is perfect!
You managed to recreate the emotions of the caracteres and it's amazing! :)
I also love this style where you leave exposed the construction / sketch lines of your design!
The quote is also very appropriate! I personnaly love to associate a quote or a song to an art piece: i think it give more depth to the drawing: somthing to meditate ;)
Plus i don't think i've ever seen such a gorgeous Adam! ;)
What do you think?

I love your work, but I wish more if it were painted, so would call more attention, even so I really liked how it turned out. I appreciate that you did this scene referring to the movie, I like this kind of "proofs of love."
I've put a little note on originality least because although there are many scenes where the prince comes as a human, you copied the drawings of disney and would have appreciated more than you imagined you'd think you would like.
But hey, it's okay :) All in all this work is wonderful, keep it up!
PD: Sorry if you do not understand something, I am Spanish and my English is bad ... use the google translate T_T

I've always loved Glen Keane's art...but, you are not only unique (with your own style), you are just as good as he is--parallel to him. :D I am a fan of the Beauty and the Beast (as are many), even Adam when he is no longer a Beast is beautiful. You captured this very well. Thank you for that.

Stunning.  Amazing.  I wish you were selling prints of it.  The look, the communication in the eyes is so strong you can feel it flowing out of the image.

I have always enjoyed your artwork davidkawena but this one really shines out to me.  You have captured the pairing of them in a blissfully intimate moment, betraying all of their happiness and joy to their onlookers.  Beauty looks fantastic but what is truly striking it beast.  The detailing of his face, the strong lines that provoke that inner beast, and the way he seems to be completely at home with his human form leaves the viewer breathless.  The merging of a man and a beast is done perfectly while still retaining the finesse and regalia that comes with being a prince. 
My only qualm is the detailing on Belle's dress.  The middle fringe seems to drop down too far in the back of her gown.  But that is something I really could care less about (I'm not really oogling Belle after all).
