What would I give
To live where you are?
What would I pay
To stay here beside you?
What would I do to see you
Smiling at me?


EDIT: So... now DevinatART automatically shrinks down your pictures? Without giving you the option of letting it be displayed as it should be. That's annoying. Ah, well. Download to full view!!

It's the one you've all been waiting for! :iconursulaplz:
Hahaha, anyway.... There isn't too much about The Little Mermaid that I can say that hasn't already been said. It's a very, very good film. Magnificent music and songs, great characters, great animation (although it does have some amusing hickups).

Since it's spring break, I glued my butt to my chair and made myself finish this (because its been sitting in my folder for at least two weeks, hardly being touched).
Blotchy coloring style because... I don't know, I just thought it would look good. And I think it does. :nod:

Some people asked me if I was going to draw Ariel as a mermaid. And that just perplexed me. I mean, throughout the entire movie, Ariel was striving to become human, so that she could be with Eric. So no fish-tail for my couples picture. :P
Sail dress because it's fierce. :icontyraplz: Scuttle should be a designer.

Dedicated (for what it's worth) to Howard Ashman, the man "who gave a mermaid her voice, and a beast his soul." :heart:

Thanks very much! This one is getting on in age, but I still like what I did with the coloring; I remember it was fun playing around with something different. :)

My favorite Disney animated feature ever!! :D :D These two are also my favorite Disney pairing, and I refer to films and characters made by the Walt Disney Animation Studios. I separate Pixar from that entirely in terms of movies and characters, so as opposed to this couple, FergusxElinor are my favorite Pixar pairing.

Really great one here. :)

I differentiate every studio out of respect (animation or otherwise). I don't like crediting the wrong people with others work. ;)
