The Rose by Jon-Lock The Rose by Jon-Lock
I did my best. This was a challenge for me...I had a hard time trying to think of a design for the beast, the beast being the female of course. Haha the more and more I started drawing her the more it started looking like the faun from Pan's Labyrinth. OTL I do have another pic of her with sort of a different design on my tumblr. The color scheme isn't all that different tho. The composition of this scene was based off of the part where Belle first meets the Beast and wishes to see his face. But, here the situation is where the beast almost kills the young man only to see that he isn't really afraid of her. She eventually offers him a rose. It was the first time in a long time a person has gotten so close to her. This is their moment.

Being a guy, the concept of a gender bended version of the classic tale always fascinated me.

Is it just me, or does genderbending all these princess stories make everything so much better?

I freaking love this. Everything about it is beautiful. And his expression, oh my God... And her hair... :O
I love the colours and shading, too~! 
(She actually does remind me a bit of the faun from Pan's Labyrinth, but that's a good thing 'cause the faun was epic).

Once again I'm asking you this - why are you so good at everything~? :333

I love how you did this scene, the expressions on their faces and the red glow that just emanates from the rose. :3  It really captures the initial gloom and solemn feelings at the beginning of the story.  I must say, I really love your work.

There really seems to be a double standard on these sorts of things, whether it's books, movies or games, human girls hooking up with monstruos looking guys isn't that uncommon. Yet the moment this is reversed people start shrieking "Furry!!!"

I guess it's been going on for so long for a lot of different reasons, one of them being that old fable about females being able to see beyond the physical and love a man for his mind and personality, and somehow men are incapable of this as we all know that all men are pigs who go for nothing but appearence, should a man even attempt to express some sort of attraction towards a female such as the one in this beautiful piece of art, he must obviously be some sort of sexual deviant who can't surpress his urges to molest animals.

There's an old English/Welsh story about an enchanted rosebrier that only shows up on the full moon, as it guards the entrance to the realm of the Fae. If the brier isn't enough to keep curious humans out, it's also said to have a guardian of it's own... Your picture reminded me of it. (My granny was a WWII war bride, and told the BEST supernatural stories when I was growing up.)

If this was a movie, I'd watch the daylights of out it. If this was a book, I'd read the daylights out of it. You get the point! I love this dearly! Disney's Beauty and the Beast is absolutely one of my favorites, Belle being high up in the ranks of being a favorite princess. Meaning, you did a fantastic job, not ruining what a great fan already loves, and definitely just loving it!

This kinda reminded me of a sad and creepy version of Tim Burton's The Corpse Bride. This is really great artwork, and it just gives me the feels I think I've fainted.
I really like how the rose glows, giving the feeling of some kind of hope for those two <3

Awe, I love your twists on common disney fairytales. So wonderful! Have you considered writing them? (forgive me, I sort of just randomly found you lol so I have NO idea what's up! haha) She is beautiful. Does she wear her heart on her sleeve? I get that impression here.

I've always wanted a gender reversed B&B story! Cause I mean it's one thing for a GIRL to like an unattractive boy, but for a BOY to like an unattractive girl, well that would be a REAL fairy tale!

I love your storybook swaps, really like the beast swap here.
He looks like the perfect humble villager and your beast-lady is truly impressive!
I always found the beast in Beauty and the beast to be more comical, I prefer your darker version.
