For once, I tried to make the center of attention not at a dress but at a background. Of course, I wanted to kill myself for it. As much as I love Ariel, I loved the andersen's tale better. She dissolved into the water and turned to daughter of air. I feel that this version is much more meaningful than Disney's. It wasn't just about love, it was about her wanting to explore the world, wanting to know more about the world, and her curiosity. She did meet her end for love, but it was also about a promise of a soul in the afterlife.

Hello, first of all sorry for taking your image and draw it without your permission. Is that I passed and charm and draw me without knowing who I was creating ... Although I did not stay as beautiful as your digital drawing. I hope you do not mind. I'm giving the credits of the picture and all ... but if it bothers you so one or displeases you, let me know and I imediatamente drawing photo off my account. And I congratulate you ... for what little I have seen an incredible Galaria and excuse my bad English, I'm using a translator.
I never knew the original story of Ariel and I agree that it is much better, a lot of Disney movies (excluding Pirates of the Caribbean) are way too predictable and similar. The water is truly amazing and I think this may just be one of my favourite works on deviantART
aww!!! thanks so much! I think that disney story, despite the abundant clitche, is good for younger kids who dream of a perfect ending. beautiful, perfect, and everything will turn out alright and live happily ever after. though it's unrealistic, it at least give them a good impression of the world before they get squashed by reality. lololol!!!
Yeah, I see your point. I mean I loved most of the Disney movies when I was younger, especially the Little Mermaid, lol Ariel was my role-model at the time, and I guess because I now know what the real worlds like I can't really think of Disney the same way. Of course, I can admire the art though
