This is one of your best pieces, in my opinion. I really like all the tones of blue used in this, it really compliments the piece. The clock face pattern sums it up beautifully! The dress looks nice, and Cinderella...well, Cinderella looks great! I think it would look cool if you messed around with light color silhouetting with dark, like you did in this work. The light blue lighting behind Cinderella draws the attention to her, which is a good thing! The water splash under the glass slipper was a nice touch. I've said this a lot during this critique, but good job on this piece!

Thank you so so much for the critique, it means a lot to me =) My first idea was to create some noise around her like she was losing everything when the clock strikes 12, but then I thought "everyone knows what happened when the clock striked 12, what about creating a picture where Cinderella was given the chance to go to the ball?" so this represents the momment when the fairy godmother transformed her into what she actually is: a princess. My idea was to put her blonde, but then again I thought it would be another Disney cliché.
The arcane circles are great to represent magic, I started to put them in blue, then in purple, but then I thought "the fairy used white magic, she helped Cinderella" so I've chose some strong circles but in white, to create the feeling of a powerful magic but in a good way. Then the water and the stars, well cristal is as clear as water, so I loved the idea of a magical cristal shoe made out of water, a pure ellement =)

Again, thanks a lot for the kind critique :D

This is a very interesting piece you have done, my fellow deviant. I have to say this caught my eye and I instantly liked it. How you've had the girl pose and the the absence of anything solid in the background (basically just the soft, yet dark, simplicity of the background. And that includes the clock) really correlate with her quite nicely. Basically, it makes it look more real, like she's ACTUALLY floating down through a void towards the shoe. the water and sparkles are a nice touch as well. However, I do have one thing to say....
I can see you have the Cinderella thing going on, but if the hands on the clock behind her were actually striking twelve..
That's just my opinion. Otherwise, you and your crew that worked on this have done a fantastic job. For me, its an instant fave.

Oh thank you so so much for the critique! :D I agree totally with you, but I didn't put it on twelve o'clock on purpose, because this is the phase where she's given the chance to go to the ball, so it's like she's transforming herself from the poor maiden to the classic princess we all know =) But yes, I understand what you say and I want to thank you for the absolutelly amazing critique =) :huggle:

Could I have permission to use this for a project? This will not leave the classroom and only be shown in my classroom. We will give you credit since that is apart of the assignment. We are doing a project and my story is Cinderella and this picture fits perfectly. Please contact me as fast as you can. Thank you. :)
