i seriously loved this deviation. the highlights r nice.
i think if the background would have been a little bit more bright than it would have made the mermaid stand out. Though the picture tone is same, which works really nicely. A brighter moon would have added to the light and dark toning. the details on the tail is nice, the water drops has added to its beauty. Well i generally picture a mermaid with extreme long hairs, i think they are quite short.
Also, really catchy artwork. <3

I usually don't ever look at anything Little Mermaid related, but this one caught my attention. The dark colors add an air of mystery, Ariel's squared off jaw and gaze just lure you in and make you wonder what it is she's looking at or thinking of. The hues of blue make it look cold and calculating instead of the usual warm and bubbly art you usually see. Over all, it's a very alluring, very dark piece that's simply stunning and interesting to look at. You did a good job with the lead lines as well, the lines of the body lead you to look in a full circle around the image instead of letting your eyes wander off the page.
The only qualm i would have with this is the anatomy of her arm, it seems a little thick for her waistline and there's no obvious placement for her wrist and the elbow is a little low. On the other hand I love how you did the water, it really seems to be reflecting the waves! Great work overall~ Can't wait to see what you do in the future :)
