Cinderella at her mother`s grave. illustration for Brothers Grimm`s fairy tale "Cinderella"
I used a photo reference for her pose. watercolor + ink
Suggester says: "Most of the Cinderella art I see is mostly her transformation, dancing with the Prince or becoming a Princess. Its refreshing to see the sad side of the story portrayed in art.
It also makes me wonder what Cinderella's life was like before her father died."
Your interpretations of "Cinderella" are among the most beautiful I've ever seen. And unlike so many here, they aren't vulgar or cartoonish. Fine work. I have a masters on kid lit and did my thesis on the Cinderella story in many cultures, from France to Greece to China, and you have done so well by the tale. in that you do not concentrate on the post-transformation phase. Thank you.
