Disney Elementals Belle by CeruleanRaven Disney Elementals Belle by CeruleanRaven
Metal Element Belle!

This has been tons of fun to work on in between assignments and my job. I'll be honest I had a really hard time with Belle, even though she's one of my personal favorite Princesses. (I used to wear out my Beauty and the Beast VHS putting it on constant repeat.) I was scared to create her elemental because she fits well with a lot of elements I've already done. I originally thought of her as jumbled mess of metal and cogs, similar to her Father's inventions. That didn't work quite well enough since they are wood heavy. This idea came to me a bit later and her as a Candelabra/Chandelier stuck in my brain. Had. To. Do. IT.

Anyway, this was the piece I painted for my birthday, as a celebration. And for all of you to help celebrate I guess haha!

Thanks for keeping an eye on me! ;)

EDIT: Not sure why but the image is having a hard time loading, at least for me. But it works if you Fullview. Just give it some time.

It has a very gothic feel to it, much like the Beast's castle.

Ever watched Once Upon A Time? In that show, the mad sorcerer Rumpelstilskin (played by the ever entertaining Robert Carlyle) is the beast in a sense, using his dark magic to protect Belle's kingdom from invading Ogres and in exchange, she becomes the caretaker of Rumpel's "very large estate". She wears the same golden princess dress and the same blue and white peasant dress and it is such a delight to see! Makes "Skin Deep" my favorite episode! :D

I think this is amazing. I looked through your other Disney Elementals and even though Belle isn't my favorite princess, this is my favorite one. I love the idea of her being Metal, and how you designed this... I am stunned. Fantastic work!

i like the concept of Bell being the element of Metal, metal can be soft when warm, easily bendable, but when cold it is unmoving and strong.

i think it fits her personality perfectly, the contrast between a sweet and caring individual (metal when warm and moldable), and determined steadfast woman who does not falter from her beliefs (when metal is cool, unyielding and unmoving)

: D

Epic win, so which princess you gonna do next?

Oh man! Leave it to you to come up with the best synapses!

I have the next one all planned out! I actually am deciding between two different ladies next. The elements are Lightning and Earth/Gem/Mystical (Yeah, 3 in one haha. Can't find just the right label for it.)
