i drew this for my art class, the assignment was “storybook illustration”
i wanted to do like, a princess who saved herself 8’)„,
“The Fairy Godmother waved her hand and a mirror appeared. Cinderella gasped. There in the reflection - standing in the same disordered kitchen, among the drying laundry and dirty pots and pans - was the most beautiful princess she had ever seen. Could it really be her?”
Wandering the corridors of Tumblr, I’ve discovered that most of the Cinderella posts feature the Disney princess in various iterations, with her blonde up-do and big blue eyes. Red Riding Hood, in contrast, appears in many different guises. If Cinderella had never become a Disney film, would this character also possess more faces?
I do appreciate the beauty of the Disney version. She’s iconic and instantly recognizable. But at the same time, I wish that more artists like Kelley would share their own takes on Cinderella. Especially when I see this beautiful illustration.
Have you made or seen any unique interpretations of Cinderella? Let us know!
Reminds me of 20th Century Fox’s Anastasia. Her dress and crown at the end (I think. or her dress from her childhood/one of those Rasputin dreams.) and her hair too.
The princess and the pea.
