Fan art is a hobby as old as time–that’s how the saying goes, right? With the release of the live-action Beauty and the Beast upon us, it seemed like the proper time to showcase fan art inspired by this new version of the movie and the animated film from 1991. Belle resonates with the audience because of her curiosity, bookworm tendencies, and her sense of adventure. It’s no wonder she’s inspired artists to depict her in a variety of mediums. I adore this take by Naariel Illustrations:

And we can’t forget the Beast. Jacob McAlister created this visually striking piece featuring the prince. The style is inspired by the work of Gustav Klimt.
We need some live-action action, and this art by Annalisa Mignone fits the bill:
You’ll find more a few more versions of Belle in the gallery below. Head to the comments and tell me about the illustrations you like best!
Do you create any sort of fan art? If so, I want to see it. Whether you focus on a specific fandom or pull inspiration from multiple stories and mediums, I’d like to highlight what you do. If you’re interested in being featured in a future edition of Fan Art Friday, get in touch with me at [email protected] with examples of your work. If you’re not an artist, feel free to email me with recommendations for Fan Art Friday!
