Magical Transformation

Cinderella’s magical transformation from rags to an elegant gown is a study of movement and grace. Disney art focused heavily on her visual transformation, from the movement in her arms and hair and clothing. It’s expressive and fluid. When I decided to sketch this subject, I wanted to study her movement as a means of illustrating the magic. I completed this sketch in three 30minute sittings. I really wanted the movement to be the emphasis, the transformation should be viewed as a whole, rather than each still. I took very little time working on each still, and instead focused on making the lines look alive.
