Beautiful. As always, your coloring is awesome! I have to say I am probably one of the few people who didn't mind the Prince Adam design. This one seems pretty fitting too. He kind of reminds me of Wolverine.
The one thing I could not understand was how no one seems to like the Beast's human counterpart, Adam. First off, Adam has the same physical qualities (broad shoulders, thick legs, mane of hair, etc.) as the Beast, they are just toned down so that he obviously is more human like. Secondly, if you think Adam is ugly, weird, or odd-looking, and seem to only think that of his character, then congratulations, you completely missed the whole point of the movie. The superficial barriers that our eye's see are not supposed to be main point of judgment on an individual, but based on what they value, how they act and treat others, and how they see themselves.
The Beast changed back to his original form not just because Belle pronounced her love for him. The Beast transformed back into Adam because not only was he able to accept himself, he was able to change and was willing to change into a better person through his interactions with Belle and his internal reflection. The Disney crew knew what they were doing when the designed Adam. They did not want to make him into the perfect prince like Eric or Charming, but show him as a flawed individual and to challenge the audience to embrace the transformation not because Adam was "drop dead gorgeous" but due to the fact he was able to accept himself and find everlasting love, regardless of his physical appearance. To me, Adam is a symbol of human imperfection, and if I have learned anything throughout my life, it is that imperfection IS perfection.
Anyway, this is a BEAUTIFUL rendition of one of my favorite scenes of ANY movie. The bright colors in the sky, the euphoria on Adam's face, and the intimate way that Belle combs her fingers through his hair makes the picture take a life of his own. I may have never mentioned this, but you are one of my favorite artists on deviantart, not only for the way you use colors, but for the way you evoke feeling from your subjects, allowing the viewer to feel what they do. An amazing job and a definite fave.
Darn you just proved that Beast is not strawberry blonde My friend and I were having a fierce debate over why there aren't any blonde Disney princes. I insisted that Adam was strawberry blonde but my friend was all "in the dvd restoration he's brown hair blah blah blah" lol.
