Wow, I love it how she has a strange, unique beauty around her, and how she's not your stereotypical beautiful princess, and she looks so sad and serious as well. Beautiful work, and especially the meaning behind it.
This is really cool. Some old-school writers would call her handsome, back before that term came to be strictly used for men. Good, solid features. And I really like what you did with the ears in her beast form. Good job.
Ah, I see how you made the changes perfectly human and yet so not. You adjusted the proportions ever slightly larger, made the musculature more pronounced and made the nose (a sensitive subject for certain females) more pronounced and made attention get drawn to it while making it larger and more "crone"-like
I think it's very powerful how her beast form resembles her, with some of her features still there but stretched out of proportion. It reminds you that the beast was already there inside her, the witch just brought it out. (At least I think that's what happened in the original story, or at least in the Disney version!)
She's beautiful in her human form no matter what anyone say. I can see her and the "Beauty" being together since he is supposed to love her personality than looks (which the Disney version did right, but the Prince in his human form looks handsome so it sort of lost the value...).
I love how you can still see the resemblance between the two. Her nose is slightly bigger than most people would portray women but she still pulls off the look, regal looking but still somewhat normal and melancholy
I really like your design of her human form! She's not a typical beauty, especially with her stronger features, but that doesn't make her ugly, and you can see the connection between her two forms. I've always thought that having the beast become handsome at the end kind of twists the moral of the story, so I really like the idea of them just becoming a regular-looking person.
