Cinderella

Work for a wonderful "Bobby Chiu's Fairy Tales Re-Imagined 2D & 3D Art Challenge". The brief was to come up with some unusual twist in the tale, or entirely different conditions. Little Red Riding Hood jedi or Snow White-orc okay too :) In general, no restrictions, the main thing that fairy tale should be recognizable. I decided to show Cinderella's retinue the way it would have been without the intervention of the fairy godmother.
