The story is nothing like that but I see resemblance between ladies.
Thanks!

it looks like fakir and princess tutu, just a bit, but it is super cute

love the story; beautiful picture

my poor brief inadequate critique: her facial expression shows the disdainful and dismissive attitude she has toward people, as a result of the curse she is under; she can't really feel any emotion except humor...not until the princes sacrifices his life, and almost dies

such a glorious story

I see your point. Guess my memory goes a bit vague or I just wanted her to look nice..
But thanks for your opinion!

she's so pretty! i like how you drew the water ripples. light just seems to emanate from her :D

Thank you kindly! =)
She's light because of her weight or rather because she has no weight.. but I also wanted her to bring light whenever she appears considering she was always risible in this (light-weighted) state.

Ooh, I love the amount of detail you put into the background. And I love how the "light princess" seriously has a light of her own.
