I love this piece, especially since this is one of my favorite films from childhood. I gave you 4.5 stars in vision for using the light and angle of the piece to set the mood. You did a wonderful job. I think that if you added just a bit more light into the contrast it'd be even more stunning.

I didn't give you 5 stars in originality because this is not your 'original theme/characters' but I do love it, and it is done in an original way. Thus the 3.5 stars.

Your technique is stellar, I really enjoy it. I like the semi watercolor feel. I do feel like perhaps a bit more blending in the cloak and skirt could provide a smoother, softer, fabric feel. However that is totally an artistic preference. The roses and petals are lovely, and effectively carry the eye throughout the piece. I think perhaps I'd have gone semi-oldschool and made them VERY red. (to provide an even deeper visual impact) But again this is personal idea and not a retraction on the overall enjoyment on the piece.

I like the visual feast you've laid out, and it certainly has inspired me to go and peruse your gallery.
What do you think?

Hi Chris; just finished the zentangle version of my fan art piece for this illustration, "West Wing."  I also have many other Beauty and the Beast zentangle illustrations in my gallery in my own alternative version of the story.  I invite you to visit my gallery and thank you again for your kindness in letting me do a black and white cartoon, based on this marvelous work of art.

This is just a magical piece in capturing mood with minimalism and suggestion.  Very sophisticated concept.  Question:  I am a zentangle artist, not professional; a hobbyist.  I did a black and white marker zentangled version loosely based on this picture, borrowing the composition only.  If I didn't sell it, could I use my zentangle version as  part of a student exhibit at our art school?  I would put "based on a painting by Chris Darril of Darril Arts next to it, giving you proper credit for expression of idea, etc.  It is definitely not for sale.  Please let me know if you would give me permission.  I will respect your wishes regardless.  Thanks so much.  You are a wonderful thinker!

Thanks again, this was so expressive and it spoke to my my soul.   Does this mean I can use it in my student art show?? I will state that it is based on the original painting by Chris Darril/Deviant Art.  I will not sell it. But I really want to know it is OK with you in writing.i I felt you put a lot of subtle feeling into a scene.  If you would please give me permission to show it publicly giving credit to your genius of course .  Thanks so much, I live in a  very small town of 8,000 people (mostly elderly) and so this would just brighten their day.
