How to Draw Beast from Beauty and the Beast
œTale as old as time, true as it can be barely even friends, then somebody bends unexpectedly. Just a little change, small to say the least, both a little scared, neither one prepared, Beauty and the Beast. The age old song lyrics to one of the best animated movies I have ever seen. My lesson for the day will start out with a roaring character from Disney's animated classic. I will be giving you a lesson on œhow to draw Beast from Beauty and the Beast" step by step. Beast is probably one of the best characters designed by the Disney drawing team. He is very strong looking as well as stubborn, kind, and full of sorrow. The movie Beauty and the Beast was the only animated feature length film to be nominated for an Academy Award. It was brought to life on the big screen back in 1991, and it is an adaptation from the novel written by œJeanne Marie Le Prince de Beaumont named œBeauty and the Beast. The whole story of how a young Prince turned away a beggar who was really an enchantress in disguise. For punishment he was cursed along with his whole castle and everyone in it transforming them all into anthropomorphic pieces of furniture, dishes, and appliances. What happened to the prince? Well he was turned into a hideous looking beast to represent the very ugliness he showed to the old beggar woman that approached his front door. The only way that Beast could break the spell is if he was to fall in love and have the woman love him just the same. Some of the most popular characters that lived in the castle with Beast was; Mrs. Potts who was the wise teapot, Chip the son of Mrs. Potts he was a tea cup with a small chip on the rim, Lumière the candelabra, and Cogsworth the clock. I mean there is other characters too but these are the main four besides Belle, Gaston, and Maurice Belle's father. There is so many of these characters that can be drawn out and I probably will make tutorials on œhow to draw Disney's Beauty and the Beast characters. But for now, why don't you just tackle this very cool looking character which was the best looking character through the whole movie. It is now time to learn œhow to draw Beast from Beauty and the Beast step by step". I will be back guys with more drawing fun. Peace out and happy drawing.....
When learning how to draw Beast you have to keep in mind that he is very large in size. You will need to draw a small circle shape for Beast's head and then add the facial guidelines. Next draw a big huge circle for Beast's torso and connect it to the head with a long curved line for a neck. You will then draw the arm, waist, and leg guidelines.
As you can see you must take your time when learning how to draw Beast's face. Use the facial guidelines you drew in step one to draw out the lining for his eyes, nose and long sagging mouth that includes a hairy face as well.
Now you can start sketching out the hunch back for a neck as you can see here. It is just a lump with hair on it. You will then start sketching out the shape of Beast's actual head which includes the brows, and jowls. Draw out the shape of his eyes and color in the eyeballs. You will then draw out the nose tip and then draw out the lining for Beast's cape that he wears.
Okay it is time to start sketching in the detailing and definition to Beast's head, back of the neck, and face. You will first draw out his horns, and then his ears that are positioned just below the horns. Next detail the bridge of his nose and then start detailing his fur and or hair. Draw out more of the cape in detail and then you can move to the next step.
The last thing to draw on Beast's face is his sad looking bottom lip and fangs. After that is done you can draw the other side of his cape and then start sketching out his beastly chest with a strip of hair going down the middle. Make sure when draw Beast's body you are using a jagged technique with your drawing tool to convey that Beast has a hairy body.
This is the easy part. You will now start drawing out the shape of Beast's arms and legs as seen here. This is very simple, all you have to do is follow the directions as shown to you here in the drawing.
Continue to sketch out the shapes of his arms and then draw out the hands and nails. You will also draw or sketch out the lower portion of his legs which are like that of a wolf.
You will draw the rest of his cape and then finish off his feet including nails and all. Once you are done you can start erasing all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one to clean up your art. See how easy that was. You are ready to color in your Beast.
