OF A BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGE

So... there's this meme going around where you take a Disney coloring book page and paint it like a classical painting. I think you're supposed to do one of the Disney princesses, but... I did Gaston. You know how I roll.

Ahaha, while I was doing this, I suddenly remembered that in my childhood I always wished Belle would get together with Gaston instead of the Beast... sure, Gaston's a vain chauvinist, but at least he doesn't have immaturity and rage issues.

the Rembrandt I referenced ---> here

3-4 hours, PS CS3

"Doesn't have immaturity and rage issues."

...Did we see the same movie?
Because...Gaston has both of those things. He practically threatens to ruin Belle's and her father's lives if she doesn't marry him. And when he finds out that she IS in fact in love with the Beast, he goes on a personal vendetta to kill the monster, JUST to hurt her.

Hi, just wanted to say that I love this picture, the lighting and that big, goofy, smile Gaston has is just perfect :)

I was reading a few of the comments and noticed that you mentioned you think Belle and Gaston might have been a good pairing, with a bit of effort on both sides. I'm not sure if you are a fanfiction reader, but an author named TrudiRose wrote a very interesting story where The Beast did not exist, and Gaston and Belle did eventually fall in love, although they still had the same personalities and traits, for the most part.

If you are interested, the story is named Picture This.

oh no, he doesn't have anger issues, he just sent a mob after Beast when Belle declined his marriage proposal

Gaston sent a mob after a ravenous Beast who'd kidnapped his girlfriend to the point where she had Stockholm Syndrome. Anybody would be angry at that.

The Beast, on the other hand, was angry though the entire movie for no real reason. When Belle turned down Gaston's marriage proposal, he went and sulked about it. When Belle turned down Beast's invitation to dinner, he screamed and pounded on her door like a petulant child.

I'm not saying Gaston doesn't have some anger issues - I should have said that if you compare the two, it's my opinion that the Beast is worse.

But didn't Gaston try to blackmail her into marrying him before he knew about the Beast? By threatening her with chucking her father into an insane asylum?

Just wanted to point that out I did.

I'm not saying Gaston isn't bad... I guess all I meant was that the Beast scared me as a kid and Gaston didn't, so I had the false impression that Gaston was the good guy. That initial impression still colors my perception of the movie today.

I'd be surprised if anyone else felt the same way.

Lol really? Interesting. . . I'd always hated Gaston since I was little because he was a douche who tried to force himself onto a girl who obviously wasn't having it. And though I thought Gaston was attractive, he was meaaaaaaan. And I felt like Beast was just misunderstood.

But then again, I've always hated the popular but inept people, and I myself was the misunderstood, occasionally frustrated person, so I could always relate better to Beast's character. And, I was and am like Belle, in that I am curiously attracted to things that are supposedly scary, like Beast.

So my impressions on life color my perception of the movie, too. But I do still hate Gaston, all except for his hair. XD My God, his hair is sexy.
