Ariel the Little Mermaid by TheMinttu Ariel the Little Mermaid by TheMinttu
This to fill the gaps between my submissions. The idea has haunted my brain quite a long while now, and when a good opportunity came, I grabbed my Wacom. Actually I'm just teasing you Oblivion-tards out there. Ha! No Oblivion farts yet, keep cool my babies.
Photoshop CS, ~5h.

This is a very beautiful image. I came across it elsewhere on the 'net and had to find the original work so I could thank you for it. This is just one of those special pictures that seems to tell a whole story with just a single image. As others have said, her face and eyes are vaguely inhuman, but still attractive and very compelling. I also love how you managed to make her hair so look so simple and yet realistic. I also agree with EdensBlood, however; I think the scallop shells look a bit out of place, but it's not too distracting.

Well, I'm going to go check out the rest of your gallery now. Thanks again for the powerful image.

Favorite. The art itself is amazing, and desiring.
Also. Her boobs are small.
Love~
My name is Ariel, but I use the Jewish spelling of Aierelle.

If Ariel were really held up in some tank, I would go through Hell and back to rescue her. Such is the power of the Crush.

I'm guessing that the idea is that she been captured and studied? It's a very cool and original concept. Even though Disney's version will always be my favorite, I love the twist you put into it!

This has to be shown to the Hanna/Jonas fans and have them recognize what will happen if they stop liking Disney classics.

Absolutely love it, except for the seashells. They shouldn't be there, not out of any sense of pervyness or anything, just because they don't fit the tone of the scene.

This is beautiful; I love how inhuman her eyes and nose look, and her webbed fingers. The details are just so interesting to look at. Wonderful.

(and the gills on her neck, so subtle!)

So this is Ariel in real life... When I've seen this, my thought grow deeper enough to realise that she would use her voice to tear our ears apart.

Her expression kinda cute somehow...

Of your entire excellent gallery, this one's probably my favourite. Those eyes and that face are just incredibly powerful!

This is very creepy, but very impressive. I love her eyes, and the subtle changes in her body shape. The only thing I might criticise is that the clam shells look a little out of place; how are they staying on?
