|The Enchanted Love - Joey Chou|
With the release of Disney's live action Beauty and the Beast fast approaching, it's time for more fairy tale movie inspired art! Although the art is specifically 'fan' art (done by professionals) so doesn't explore the fairy tale origins very much, it's still interesting to see the aspects of the story that inspire artists to create images.
