Ariel by skelly-jelly Ariel by skelly-jelly
I sat down today with a clean piece of paper and agonized myself for two hours or so on something to draw. Started a few things and scrapped them all. Then I told myself to stop trying so hard and just draw something. This was the result.

I've been wanting to draw a picture of Ariel for a long while now, as I can't remember when I last did so. The Little Mermaid is my favorite Disney movie of all time. It has been since I saw it in the movies when I was 9 or so.

I kept the sketchiness of my original sketch because I liked it so much. Plus I figured outlining it in photoshop would loose some of the charm of the sketch. I may continue to do this as I always like my pictures before I redo the lineart. This has sort of an art nouveau feeling to it. I left off her seashells as most art nouveau images contain scantily clad women. (I was using Mucha as a reference).

Ariel is (c) Disney.
