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."

It is great to find some art that doesn't portray the annoying Disney version of Cinderella.
I just honestly like the Grimm version so much better!

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.

This is a lovely picture. It's dark and beautiful. I like your attention to detail, such as the leaves and the condition of her dress. Nice job.
