Off to apologize...good luck, Beauty!

Oh no. She looks too calm. She's too comfortable. It's too dark. She's dressed all in white. It's official. She's a maiden going to the slaughter.

Or at least she's going to see something that makes the Beast finally appear...beastly.

(I'm really hoping that they just have "I forgive you"s exchanged as well as sweet smiles and maybe a cuddle but I think that's asking too much of them at the moment. The Beast looked like he was REALLY losing it.)

Side note: Beauty looks so mature in that bottom panel! I feel like you can really see that she's adult quite clearly there. I'm not sure if it's her confidence or a slight change in art style (or the slightly revealing nightgown?) but she gives me that impression.

PS - your rendition of a starry night outside the castle is gorgeous!

The tensions and the moods are just so!

I've seen enough horror movies to know where this is going...

Neat perspective angles- especially the high one. Not to mention the starry night panel- very atmospheric.

Lookout! Another seven pages of walking through corridors!

You know me so well :)

Megan, do I pick up any hints of 'Panna a Netvor' in these panels? sheshallnotbenameless pretty much summed up everything about this scene that made me think of it, especially "maiden going to the slaughter" *shivers* (though I, too, am praying that it isn't going to end nastily).

All I saw when this page first loaded was the first inch or so of the art, and immediately, I heard myself say, "Oh! Oh...." I love, love, love the way you render darkness in the castle. The glaze of light, the depth of beautiful.

(Good luck, Beauty!)

The stars and the hall Beauty's walking in are quite lovely. I especially like the stag in the painting behind her. She looks a bit older in this page, I must say, but so far her walk is quite peaceful, despite being in a dark, mostly empty castle at night.
