You drawed Bella so well!
I like the smile and the technique that you've choseen to color this!
Thanks for posting!
good job ^^ although i imagine Belle with other face
No need to be embarassed!
I mean look at , she does a lot of them and never loses her passion for it (and it's not just for her job either). So if you still feel like you're in a Disney mode and wind up drawing Disney stuff, then don't feel oppressed into not doing it just because you told yourself to stop.
BTW, best version of Belle EVURR!
also does a buttload of anime fanarts but ALWAYS has her originals.
So, anytime you draw Ariel or any other Disneys, just remember you still do your originals too. Drawing one or two fanarts of Ariel/Disney every once in a while shouldn't damper your taste for originality (ie, "Uh oh, I drew Ariel art and it's not making me original anymore, it's making me a fanartist!"). Don't feel like Disney/fanart is making you unprofessional. You taught a CLASS in Africa and that's really something! And I'll have to say it'll still make you professional and original regardless of your original concepts or someone else's. Kay?
Look good Loish! A little fanart won't hurt your reputation. I promise.
ah well, it's all about what a person enjoys right? thanks for the kind comment!!
