If you fell under the spell of the Beauty and the Beast edition of Fan Art Friday a few weeks ago, then you’ll likely recognize the artist responsible for the pieces in this week’s gallery: Erin Lefler. Known as Butternut Gouache around the interwebs, Erin is a freelance illustrator who works on fan art pieces in between jobs. Her style has a fairy tale quality I can’t resist, and I can’t stop looking at her interpretations of characters I admire. Case in point, look at Rey:
She adds even more of a regal air to Frozen‘s Elsa in this portrait:
Queen Elsa (Frozen)
Keep scrolling to the gallery below to see illustrations inspired by a couple of characters in Doctor Who, a lovely scene from Beauty and the Beast, and a drawing inspired by a dancer in a Disneyland parade. When you’re ready to see even more of Erin’s enchanting work, you can follow her on Instagram or Pinterest and visit her website.
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!
