Ariel and Flounder by giselleukardi Ariel and Flounder by giselleukardi
Okie I really don't like how this turned out but It's done and I don't want to look at it anymore =P

I may go back to this sometime in the future to finish it up the way I want it to look but for now it is done... moooving on.

Hope you guys like it anyway.

Thanks for the view =)

Done in Photoshop CS5... some references used.

I have to say that you Vision is very ambitious. There is a sexuality that you capture that Disney had missed out on with Ariel being a mermaid and being an adolescent. Flounder is portrayed as just as he is, a fish. I gave you a 4 star for originality because so many people have done artistic medians for Ariel, otherwise I must commend you for your unique take of Ariel. In your Technigque it is obvious that have taken a lot of effort in makeing this piece and it shows very well. This piece impacted me by making me feel that there is a certain sexuality and sense of love that is being portrayed by Ariel. Something I don't usually see in Disney characters. Overall, I must admit I liked this piece because there is a sense of buding adulthood, as well as female confidence that most mermaid pieces I see lack. Great Job.
What do you think?

I came across your gallery via the forums! You've got lovely stuff ^^!! I would have loved to critique this but I see you're no longer in want of that so I'll just mention that I think for future you should add your rim lighting only to one side of the character, not both. But that's just what I think :). I absolutely adore the way you painted her tail :D

lol yeah I can totally see what you're saying now. This painting is from when I was just starting out at digital painting. I cringe every time I look at it now but I'm glad there are people out there who still like it.

Thanks for your kind words =)

What makes you not like the way this turned out? Personally I think its one of my favorite stylized renditions of Ariel :) It is certainly unique at any rate!

Very beautiful mermaid and lovely colors. One thing that I noticed though is that her head seems slightly over large in proportion to her torso. It may be just the way it is positioned. Still, she's very lovely.
