Cinderella by AbigailLarson Cinderella by AbigailLarson
(UPDATE 2016 - changed face and colors slightly)

Felt so gloomy today! I worked on this in between my other projects, hoping to take my mind off things, but the moodiness showed through in my paint!

Prints available here!

I'm sure you get asked this 1000 times a day but I'm curious what PS brushes you use? Do you even use photoshop? I've been fangirling over your art for ages and your actually goals.

Haha! Thanks! I'm really glad you like my work! I'm definitely not a Photoshop wizard by any means, so I can't really recommend brushes (I use the standard ones for linework corrections and that's about it) Most of my Photoshop work is in selecting and adding tones and color to certain areas of the piece. I draw and paint traditionally with ink and watercolor, then scan and finish in PS Heart

Well they look good. I find I can only ever draw digitally, I change my mind to much during a sketch and it accomplishes nothing but wasting dead trees. I hope 2018 brings you a tonne of happiness and that your art continues to stay amazing.

There are some really great digital artists who post tutorials on instagram - Loish, ursuladecay, and jacquelindeleon are just a couple wonderful artists who share their digital process. I highly recommend checking them out. And thanks so much! Same to you, I hope you have a great year <3

Green and black are not often used for fairy tale heroines, and you have proven why it needs to be utilized more! I always did love the imagery those two birds from the original story inspire

Hi!
I've been following your DevArts blog for awhile now, and I've always found your work charming and fun, but today I'm writing you because this particular image is absolutely, incredibly perfect for my band's second CD, The Ash Grove, and I wanted to ask about getting a limited use licence so that we could use it as our cover art,  We wouldn't be looking for anything like exclusivity, but just the right to print it on the CD case, and in a very few promotional materials (such as performance or release posters)  

Would you be amenable to that?  And if so, what kind of fees would you feel were fair?
In case you want to check the band out, we are MurderBallads  (murder-ballads.com), and we have e mail links on on the website.  You can also stream our first album from Bandcamp if you'd like.
Cheers!

I have a nice concept for you. You mentioned in your Beauty and the Beast piece that you like to draw girls and monsters. Have you ever heard of a book series called the Hollow Kingdom Trilogy? Its basically the story of a beautiful girl who marries a goblin and its based off of Scandinavian folklore. You should take a look at it :) Love all of your work by the way and Angela Carter is one of my favorite authors.

This is the version in which the stepsisters cut off their toes and their heels to fit their feet into the glass slipper... (unfortunately for them, glass does nothing to hide the blood...)

*nosey*
In the Grimm's version of the fairy tale, where the stepsister really do cut of toes and heels, the shoes aren't glass slippers but "normal" luxurious slippers. The prince notices the blood from the cuts when the stockings of the sisters start to turn all red... *bleurgh*

If Disney started making movies in such mood instead of that sweet-oh-more-candies-i'll-puke, then i could finally watch it.
