Studies on the different Beasts shown in the Beauty and the Beast stories.
This is my friend, Bill Blair. I used reference photos of him taken from a make-up demo he did in Las Vegas. I think the eyes are recognizable. You've seen him lots of time on television. I believe he has played every alien humanoid in Star Trek, Babylon Five, Alien Nation, Sliders...well here is a link and you can check him out yourselves... [link]
Basically there seems to be three types of beasts in the story. Some have him as a cat like creature, and others a wild boar. Then there are rare ones that do him up more goat like. The goat like ones echo the Greek, Pan style satyrs. Reflecting the wild state of man.
These pictures are quick paintings, studies mostly. My request for critiques isn't so much to correct anything. Though I'll entertain any good advice. Mostly I would like to open a dialog about the history, nature and physiology about the B&B theme. Thanks
