Ariel and Flounder by meirou Ariel and Flounder by meirou
I made this in one day, I needed to make something quick for my uni portfolio and it ended up being the best thing I've ever made. XD

I had to draw this gorgeous girl who I thought looked like ariel! Here's the ref of the girl. [link] So thanks to the photographer of that who gave me the idea. :) The owner of the photo is hairdresser Eroll Douglas.

I needed to look at clown fish because I have no idea what they look like. Flounder a flounder or a clownfish? Looks more like a clownfish to me. :lol:

Ariel and Flounder (c) Disney.

Edit: OMG A DD IM SO HAPPY DSFKJDF THANK YOUU!!...I'm meant to be sitting a graphics exam right now and all I'm doing is sitting here watching the comments and faves. :XD:

I've disabled the comments for now due to the heavy traffic this image gets, I feel really bad about not replying to them. I'll enable them again one day when I feel less lazy. :)

Edit: Enabled them again as of

I have to say; this piece is absolutely breath-taking. Every aspect of it is simply gorgeous. Each attention that is paid to the detail in the simplicity of the background made all the difference. Her features are so beautifully proportioned and set, she's the picturesque, more humanoid of Ariel. The model is stunning, and you applied yourself to this piece. It's an astonishing piece, especially because of the underwater lighting, how it bouces off her expression, smug and sardonic. I adore this <:
