Description: In this last tutorial I'm submitting another lesson on a very beautiful and popular Disney Princess. Drawing Beauty and the Beast characters is fun, but when it comes to learning "how to draw Belle", from the Disney movie Beauty and the Beast. This was a heart felt movie and very entertaining as well. The character Belle is not your typical small village gal. Unlike most girls her age she loves to keep her nose tucked away in books, she cares for and tends to her scientific father who the whole town thinks is a loon, and she is sought after by the village stud Gaston. Now, Belle wants nothing to do with this aggressive fella all she wants to do is be left alone and dream of a far off enchanted place, just like she reads about in her books. Belle often helps her father finish inventions that he builds and later takes to the county fairs to win money and become a famous inventor. Even though Belle believes in her dad she knows that there is more to her life than just sitting around an old village. It isn’t until her father leaves with his wood chopper invention to the fair that leaves Belle making a choice that will change her life forever. When her father gets lost in the woods he stumbles upon a big worn down castle. Hoping he will find someone there so he can spend the night and get out of the cold, he gets himself involved in something much more than that. The castle he stumbled upon happens to be cursed and turned everyone that lived there into pieces of furniture or dishware. After he was kindly greeted by a candle and a clock the master of the castle comes in and rips him off the chair and throws him in a dungeon for trespassing into his home. Phillip the horse finds his way back home to Belle where she automatically jumps on top of the horse to go look for her father. Finding his hat lying on the ground she continues to approach the gates and into the castle. After being led by the candle up the stairs to where her father was being held captive, she desperately cries for help and the Beast makes himself known. In an attempt to save her father she trades places with her sick old papa and becomes a prisoner of the enchanted castle. Later on through the story she finds herself oddly attracted to the Beast and they fall in love and with her love the curse is broken and the Beast turns into a handsome prince once again. This was a favorite classic Disney movie for me and drawing Belle was also very fun. In this tutorial you will learn "how to draw Belle" from Beauty and the Beast step by step. The instructions are easy to follow and understand. I hope you too will have a blast drawing out this beauty from afar.
