Cosmic Dance

Another speedpaint-y thing =). I'm back in the game! This is going to take a little bit of explaining as to how it fits in with the theme. Worry not, my noble compatriots!

This is an illustration to one of the variants of Cinderella. In a few of them, Cinderella's fairy godmother gives her three magical walnuts. They contain a dress like the moon, the sun, and the stars, respectively. (In a few of the variants, Cinderella is a runaway from a noble household and hides her fancy clothing under a fur cloak, which is what I've drawn here.) I've been looking at how some golden age era illustrators handle light/dark contrast. Any thoughts?
