I like the way you've treated the shape of the seashell bra (as a demi-cup that looks like it's actually supporting something, rather than glued on), and the transparency of the tail fin. The mix of textures is very appealing, but the clouds feel too busy. I would blur them out more where they meet the horizon line of the water so they aren't competing so much, both being vibrant, highly textured areas.

There are some odd things going on with her pelvis. Her lap seems too shallow, as if the "legs" beneath the tail would be very wide-set and thin. Since the small of her back is arched, the forward tilt of her pelvis should also be apparent in front. Her abdomen below her navel should start tucking in toward her tailbone like so: //

The severe angle of her "knees" is somewhat jarring. I'd make the bend into a much gentler curve, more serpent or fish-like.

Her hand is gorgeously rendered, yet her forearm gets lost in the middle because it is so close to the colors of the water. I can see how her arm could be hidden from view, but it feels like it is missing.

Aside from these minor details, this is one of the best Ariel paintings I've seen. All the colors blending and reflecting off each other in water, sky, skin, and scales are quite magnificent.

This piece is gorgeous. It is surreal and in that real. As if the artist had seen this image in real life and conveyed it into a fabulous work of art. Her face holds to the mythology of this character created by Disney. She is youthful looking, and yet not overly so. I am continually drawn to her tail and how the artist created the look of the "sparkle" and "shimmer" in it. It could ALMOST take away from the water at the bottom of the portrait but the lines in the drawing flow around her and constantly move the eye. All the pieces in this collection are fabulous and I can't wait to see more.

I didn't remember this wonderful work from you, when I came again to your gallery, I was for the second time really surprised by the beauty and the colours. There is always so much intensity to the face of the characters in your picture, it's so impressive and so powerful in the same time. Faestock is really lucky to be part of your world and universe, I think that she has to be very honored when she discover this piece (and I think that it's one of the most beautiful work that I see with her), and to be Ariel for a work is not nothing too :dance:
Your work with textures is also really good, with this wonderful glittery tail. You are a really great artist and I'm still impressed (and we can recognize a true artist to the fact that he impressed us each time we look at his work) :clap:

well that's awesome news! because I would love to get this piece, as it is of course, on my arm. I'm not too into the animated depictions of Ariel but I came across this and I knew my search was over. I named my daughter after her so I want to get it in her honor :) thank you for being a fantastic artist!
