Cinderella just loves mice...

This weeks theme on Drawergeeks is Cinderella. Doing Disney Princesses all the time, you'd think this idea wouldn't excite me much, but really, I was kinda interested in rethinking something that's so firmly established in everyone's mind. I mean, Disney's isn't the first or only Cinderella, it's simply the most heartily ingrained in everyone's mind. I mean, you could do anything to reimagine the story and characters. I could go with a gritty harsh view of the class system in France in the 1600's, with Cinderella as a sickly but beautiful abused girl living as a slave in her own home. Or I could have done an ornate heavily illuminated take, where the characters and sets are just filled with lavish details worthy of an expensive engraving. So what was my take? I did what all non Disney studios do when they decide to tackle something with such endless possibilities- I changed all the characters to cats.



Inspired, I know. Now all it needs is a cutesy pun in the title. Cinderwhiskers? No. Whiskerella? Um no. CinderFluffyTail? You might want to check back, this might take a while... In the meantime you can check out the other drawergeeks submissions here.

Just dropping by so say I`m adding you to my blog roll. I love Disney`s work and I love your drawing as well. I hope to someday draw well enough to be Disney material. ;)
