The story of Cupid and Psyche may be the oldest version of the Beauty and the Beast story. There’s an enchanted castle with myterious servants and a host/abductor who becomes a lover.
I’ve mentioned before, that I am working on a story that is based on the Appalachian version of this story and I’ve been researching all the various permutations of the tale. I even created a pinterest board to collect my findings.
I am particularly excited about the soundtrack for this video. I can’t believe my good fortune finding this little ditty.
I’ve been trying to hone my skills, so I made a few sketches from some stock images by kxhara.
