Did you know that the entire book, The Hunchback of Notra Dame, was about Esmeralda? Why would it be titled The Hunchback but told about a woman instead? I mean, the whole story is suppose to be ALL about Quasimodo, not her, she's just a minor character.

I still don't believe that in the Disney version she was a 'minor' character, to be honest. She was probably the second main character to Quasimodo. In the original novel by Victor Hugo ("Notre-Dame de Paris", which doesn't have the same title referring to Quasi), it was all based around her, however, but that doesn't mean that Quasi was a minor character in the original, either. Both versions have quite stark contrasts to each other, to be honest, as Disney was trying to make very dark material suitable for children. But, yeah, the original wasn't meant to be all about Quasi, it was meant to be about Esmeralda. It wasn't titled The Hunchback of Notre Dame, either, so it shouldn't be too confusing when people find Quasi's not the main character. =P

Anyways, this painting is absolutely gorgeous! I'll always envy her hair. :heart: One criticism is that she's meant to appear quite Romani, being a gypsy and all, so she'd probably have slightly darker skin like in the movie (olive, I suppose?), but I understand that the light is shining quite brightly at her (or it appears that way), so this would make it a little lighter. Nonetheless, this is going in my favourites! My favourite Disney heroine!
