Pretty good artwork there. At least DP did something right, since I was personally extremely irritated by the fact that the final film doesn't even show or hint at a wedding in the ending, or in any of the animated medium, especially considering the only wedding they did show was the one Belle ruined in a frankly disgusting manner. Why couldn't they show Belle and Adam actually marrying instead of leaving behind a hint that marriages were a bad thing (which is honestly Katzenberg and Woolverton's fault)?

I know you didn't design the dress, but I must say, I'm also especially glad that the dress is actually white. Some renditions give it a more cream color than actually being white, which gave the implication that Belle may not have been a virgin at her first wedding (The reason the bride's dress is white is because the bride is supposed to still be a virgin at the time of her first wedding).

That being said, you said you did illustrations for various Disney books, including the book this illustration was used in? I must ask you some things: 1. This book the illustration was used in. Was it by any chance the same book that used this illustration of the triplets (two of them, anyways) crushing on Lumiere while Adam was getting Belle's favorite flowers? And 2. I've been hunting a book down for quite some time, it featured Belle and Adam going to the village as a vacation of sorts, and apparently Adam gets swooned by the triplets in a similar manner to the then-recently deceased Gaston during his stay. The only thing I know about the book beyond those details is that it is apparently called Weddings (according to Angie Y. aka Britestarrobot) and that it definitely isn't the same book as the one whose page I linked to above. Can you tell me the full name of the book, or at least the ISBN number so I can have an easier time finding it? I kinda need that book for a project I'm doing, involving the triplets, and I'd appreciate it if I could get the full name of the book or at least the ISBN number.

EDIT: I do have to ask one thing, though. Since the triplets attended Belle's wedding, at least according to Wedding Wishes (even competing for the bouquet), why are they absent in that picture? Or is this just for those actually living at the castle?

I don't remember the name of the book. I would literally get three or four illustrations to do a week for Disney and they were all for different projects so after a while it became way too hard to keep track of all of it. :/

I know this one! It is in the book I purchased at Disneyland Paris last week. It is  called "Enchanting Stories" or something like that and this picture is part of a short story about their marriage^^ It's my favorite one, I loved it soooo much! I can't believe you were the one who drew it, it is magical!

Thanks! It might be slightly altered in the book because usually after I turn something in they put some finishing touches on it. I'm glad you like it though. This piece in particular took a while to create. I was just in a bookstore the other day and none of the Disney books I worked on were on the shelves so I thought they had been discontinued. I'm glad to hear that's not the case.

No problem^^ I just looked it up again. The book is called "Enchanting Magical Stories - Sparkling Stories to Share and Treasure".
It tells several stories of the Disney Princesses and their marriages and other short stories. Your pic is on the last page of "Belles Royal Wedding". ^-^ It's so cute!
Yes it is not exactly identical with the one here in DA. The background is a bit more purple-shaded than blue which adds a bit more brightness and warmth to the picture and the fireworks do have some yellow-gold sparks in them. But aside from that I don't see many differences. 
In any case, it is wonderful.

Yeah, I can imagine that they do that. But just the thought that you got to work for Disney and can make artworks like this is pure awesomeness.

I don't remember exactly how much time I spent on this since it was done quite a while ago. Something like this usually takes about three or four full working days though.

How many book illustrations for Disney have you done?
Reply

WilliamFenholt Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Honestl? Too many to count. I worked for them for about five years so it was quite a bit of work. I'd say I did a total of maybe 30 or 40 Fairies books (different stores have different versions of the same book. For instance the art in the Tinkerbell Secret of the Wings book that you can get from Walmart is probably different than the one you'd get from Target). I did maybe 3 or 5 books featuring Belle, and I worked on some random projects here and there.

Oh...also worked on a few Monsters U books.

Guess what word i'm gonna use for this piece? Gorgeous. :P Seriously, it's gorgeous!

 

By the way, I notice Belle has her hair in a ponytail here, but in the previous picture of her and Adam, she had her hair style from when she wore her golden dress. Is that just a little error you made or was it intentional?

Thanks for the compliments.

It's probably an error. They happen sometimes. I actually saw a piece that someone did in a fairies book where the foot was on the character in reverse. The big toe was where the little toe should have been.
