As per usual, another post is being dedicated to Cinderella. What can I say? She’s my favorite. So it was only natural that when I had the opportunity to create a movie poster in the most simplistic manner, I chose to do Cinderella’s cover.

So I wanted to make my poster have the glass slipper, so I googled an image of a glass slipper and I put a light blue background as the background layer. I did have to also paint the blue around the slipper, which was a very tedious process. I then added some text and wanted to put it on the right side just to create a bit of a balance between the shoe location. I did all of this with the lovely help of GIMP, and got this amazing result that I really like:
