Rococo Beauty and the Beast Dining - Beauty and the Beast Illustration

This piece is a full spread from my project of illustrating Beauty and the Beast set in Rococo France.
This piece was drawn and assembled completely digitally, though the larger areas of color are from watercolor washes I painted and then scanned. It's meant to be printed as a 24"x9" folio, so that each half is 12"x9".

I don't know of a version of Beauty and the Beast in which the Beast doesn't require Beauty to dine with him. Sometimes they will eat together, other times he will watch her dine. (Sometimes he has genteel table manners but when outdoors will stalk and devour prey like a regular beast.) But at the end of every dinner he will ask her a question - sometimes if she loves him, others if she will marry him, and sometimes even if she will got to bed with him.

This is the most recent piece I made in this project and it's my favorite so far. I do have some more that I started earlier that I still need to finish up, I will share them soon!

Below are some details and a vertical version so you can see more of it at once.
