James Baxter’s pencil animation for Walt Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.
A couple of amazing details in an already amazing sequence:
In the first GIF, watch the way Belle’s gown twirls and bunches as she spins. It’s such a lovely, nuanced touch.
In the second GIF, there are two things to make you swoon: First, the chalky white ruffles of the layered petticoat that Belle wears beneath her gown. Second, the delicate way Beast’s large paws hold Belle’s waist and hand. So, so romantic!
