The Little Mermaid by Sumo0172 The Little Mermaid by Sumo0172
DISNEY's Ariel from The Little Mermaid

After learning about the dinglehopper she is holding, Ariel the youngest of King Triton's seven daughters, looks up to the surface as she longs to be part of that world.

Ariel is one of my favorite Disney Princesses. I wanted to draw her so that the viewer really felt her desire to explore the the shore up above.

I love how you drew Ariel here and I think having her holding the dinglehopper adds a nice touch. :)

Excellent shading. I love the hair too.

And thank you for not giving your mermaid knees! I see a lot of that on DA.

I'm not often "wowed" by Disney art, generally because I find the originals by Disney much better, but this is beyond the work of Disney. I couldn't describe it as nothing more or less than perfect. Her expression is suffocating, and how much ironic can that be? At that, she is peering up--to the surface--with a human object in hand. Besides the action, she is real and not overdone, yet still looks like Ariel. It's simply perfect. Period. You have portrayed her too well and too realistically.

--still surprised I found words,
Chris

First, thank you very much. I am grateful for your kind words of appreciation and admiration. Second I'm sorry for the delayed reply. Honestly I was really humbled and couldn't think of appropriate words to respond. And truthfully I still can't except to keep it simple and brief. So again thank you very much.

Besides the fork, it doesn't Scream Ariel, but I actually like that. You put your own twist on it that's really cool!

Thank you. The webbed fingers weren't necessary but felt right to add. They eventually made it into my designs for my own mermaids
