Hey! It's ariel! I have been seeing a lot of ariel fanart lately and it has inspired me. That shine thing on her fins was an effect I had seen on lots of mermaids on DA, and finally I was able to make it work, sort of, on my own piece of Ariel. I really like it, so thanx various artists for the inspiration. I think sometime I will draw Marina, you know, the REAL little mermaid- except, probably not in that anime style that she is in the movie. Of course, the disney version is beautifully animated and a wonderful production, but that Starmaker 70's version of the little mermaid makes me cry every time. Of course I don't wish death upon Ariel, but I am a little sad that Disney strayed so far from the original story. Oh well, it is also a good movie.
P.S., my favorite Ariel fanarts are by Loish! She is just amazing, and this is nothing compared to her pics!
