Would the Lady... by Altalamatox Would the Lady... by Altalamatox
"Would the Lady Representative care for a dance?"

--

Diana and Cornelius being all fancypants at one of the disgustingly luxurious formal functions they're routinely 'obliged' to attend as politicians. Cornelius in particular likes to complain about parties, but what's new. He enjoys them.

He secretly enjoys dancing as well, something he loathed learning growing up but rather sees the point of now that he has a partner. In this moment he must just be flirting, however, because he cannot begin to dance as a monster thing. The tail clears the floor and flipper feet are ungraceful and statures are a little mismatched. Oh well. They'll just be forced to go snuggle in the garden or something lame like that.

Background is repainted directly from a rather famous ballroom scene I've always worshiped the color scheme of. Anybody recognize it? Go on. Guess. Be our guest.

I can't imagine Cornelius is exceptionally pleased to be in full monster form in the middle of a function like this, but I guess clearing the dance floor with the sweep of a tail and a smirk is decent recompense.

O-oh, I adore this work of yours. I come to see it every now and then and it still gets my breath away with all that warmt of colors and their gazing at each other and.. just pure magic, even without the ballroom they look fantastic (tho I love how blurry it is and not pointing it's beauty too much)
When I look at them, their clothes with ah so beautifull details, I just began to wait they'ld move at any moment, like I would be watching an remarkable and beautiful animation. Then I feel silly but still pleased and start to eye everything again. Real eye-candy with amount of peace and , well, "Tale as old as time" feeling :heart:

He's somewhat over-sized here, actually, but I forgot to shrink him until I'd done most of the painting and then couldn't be bothered. :p Ah well, good for effect. I imagine walking up to Cornelius IRL would be kind of a humbling experience. The ego doesn't help.

Your character designs are very beautiful but the woman's feet scare me. I'm not sure if it's intentional or not but the way her body is posed makes it out so that her feet should be pointing towards Cornelius. I may not know your characters, however, and so she may have feet that typically point to the left?

Baeuty and the Beast - Disney's version. How fitting. Even Cornelius clothes are very similar. I like that it isn't violently obvious but cleverly aranged and still recognizable.

Maybe next time you could draw a ball with the rest of the část to resemble the servant crew. Tom would make a great Lumiere. :3

The tattered curtains are what gave me away to Beauty and the Beast, even before reading "Be our guest" - but I agree, the design of the ballroom in that movie was fantastic.  I actually spent time in Kingdom Hearts just admiring the castle.

Hahaha maybe, if I were actually going to refer to HIM as the beast. However, I am referring to the background in the picture in relation to the disney movie. I don't think he'd be offended XD.

This is just so wonderful. She's a beauty... and he's a genetic "mixed-media" amphibian. Beautiful. Perfect. Heart-stopping.

Your foreground does justice to your background. I mean that as the highest compliment. Once again, instant fave. :)
