Beauty and the Beast
The oil is still tacky so I can't scan this yet, but I had to send it in. I've tried to color correct this but it's still too dark. The look I was going for was that of raw silk. I decided to change the background and place them in front of a screen to symbolize the prince hiding behind the spell of the tiger's pelt. I began this in watercolor after printing the sketch off on Epson Radiant White watercolor paper. For some reason, it started to flake off when I started applying colored pencil. So I sealed it and applied oil paint on top of that. Tara Chang gave me the idea for the second one which I did in Photoshop, just to see how it would look. Thanks Tara.
