Once upon a time in a the city... a young Girl lived in shining mansion. Although she had everything her heart desired, the Girl was spoiled, selfish, and unkind. But then, one winter's night, an old beggar woman came to the mansion and aoffered her a single rose in return for shelter from the bitter cold. Repulsed by her haggard appearence, the Girl sneered at the gift... and turned the old woman away... but she warned herto not be deceived by appearances, for beauty is found within. And when the Girl dismissed her again, the old woman's ugliness melted away to reveal a beautiful enchantress. The Girl tried to apologize, but it was too late, for she had seen that theres was no love in her heart, and as punishment she transformed her into an hideous beast and placed a powerful spell on the mansion and all who lived there. Ashamed of her monstrous form, the beast concealed herselfinside her mansion with a magic mirror as her only window to the outside world. The rose she had offered, was truely an enchanted rose. If she could learn to love boy, and earn their love in return by the time the last petal fell, then, the spell would be broken! If not, she would be doomed to remain a beast for all time! But she fell intodespais, and lost all hope, for who could ever learn to love a beast?

Really great man. Later years: The kid, now a man, has a successful career doing what he enjoys. The bimbo, now a mom with 5 kids, works at a 7/11 and gets abused by her jock boyfriend. What goes around comes around ^^

this is very nice! i really like how you did the hidden devil horns and the tail on the girl. and with the amount of sadness on the boys face, it makes me feel the same way he does, if i were there i would give him a hug. i think you did a great job on this :)

One more thing, even though he is now rich, the "nerd" is still as humble, as he was in high school!

NO! Like where the "nerd" grows up to be a billionaire, and the b**** who was mean to him ends up working at one of his establishments. She is then tripped by some random teenage jerks, while the "nerd", (who you should seriously make it look like puberty has been kind to him, but not TOO KIND! {Translation: KEEP THE GLASSES!!!}), is on TV being interviewed, she sees him, and remembers how he felt, when that happened to him!" She is now sad, but she learns!

It almost has a "walk a mile in my shoes"/karma's a B****" vibe going on, doesn't it?

You can do it in the style of that drawing above. Just put the TV, where that lunch banner would be. and don't forget, the "nerd" is still humble!

Wow, such an emotional impact. I had a boyfriend who was bullied throughout childhood so I really feel for people like this. Very nicely done. I love the separation of foreground and background elements through the blue-dark colors. The angle makes this piece extremely interesting.

Great job, very deep. Wonderful concept and execution =)

augh... it brings back painful memories. :( STOP PLAYING WITH MY FEELS!!!
Anyhow, excellent work. I really enjoy the atmosphere and the contrast of colors, lighter red being superior and darker blue being the victim. It gives it that much more depth. :D

Also, great Hunchback reference. :P

Aside from comments coming from my conversation with Miss All-Knowing Non-Bigoted I-Have-Nothing-Else-To-Do Lady, I'd like to post a comment about the actual art. :XD:

I really do like this picture a lot. It makes you think about things on a deeper level. I love the idea of "who's the beauty and who's the beast?" Very cool picture. :)

Yeah. I think she realized she was wrong and kept trying to keep up the conversation because she didn't want to admit it. I dunno.
