C is for Cinderella

Here's the next one in the collection, and the only one I actually drew as part of a production. It's a pity my daughter wasn't a couple of years older as she is mad on Cinderella, and it would've been a great kick to be working on her with my Daughter aware of it all.

T is for Tinkerbell

Still here, just very busy, and wishing I could post some work stuff, but that'll have to wait.

I've had a little project that I've been toiling over for a little while now. My daughter is a Disney Princess nut, and I had the brainwave (or maybe it was a snap) that I'd paint a mural for her. Then I had the big decision to make- do I go for an "On-model" look or stylise them. Amy's retro Disney Pin-ups were a great tempter to go for the stylised option, and it would certainly be more forgiving. But in the end, with some input from my daughter, I went for the "on-model" version.

What was I thinking? They're really hard, and especially trying to nail one style in a drawing and then move onto the next one. Thankfully I have a good collection of model sheets from my time at Disney, not that I drew many of them. Well, Cinderella was the only one actually.

Anyway, here's my first...
