First of all I must say that this is one of your best pieces of beautiful artwork. I love it!

With that said, here we go... Ariel's body and form are excellent, they portray the motion in her movements and the flow of her body through the water. Just looking at this i can hear her singing and hear the water as she moves through it and flounder's laughter as she pulls him through the water.

The sun coming through the water looks amazing and the bubbles are awesome.

However, the shell covering her right breast doesn't look like it's covering her breast. It looks too small; perhaps if you made the shell ... idk.. thicker? then it would look like it was covering her properly. And her smile looks too white. There's no shadow on her teeth and it looks somewhat like her teeth and mouth don't belong.

That's all I got. This piece is exquisite!!!!

First off, the shading is gentle and the colours used are wisely selected.
The effects of the fins have a magical effect which shows not only that you have a steady hand but able to make a still image show movement and Ariel's graceful posture.
I adore the bubbles, again these show a magical twist of underwater effects and the well balanced blurring and gentleness of the moonlight/sunlight underwater is perfectly co-ordinated :)

You have drawn a beautiful version of Ariel and flounder, with a classy glow to his fin and dorsal fin add a nice touch as well.

Overall, you have truly captured the magic that Disney try to create in all there characters and films and your talent is admirable, keep up the fantastic work.

I really like this.  My favorite part is her tail.  And I think it's interesting how you used the light and motion to soften it up.  I never would have thought of that

The color is lovely and luminescent, but she loses a lot of definition... looks almost like her ghost! Wonderful expression, Flounder is VERY good.

This is awesome! I agree with Agonized-Mistress. You do need to cover her right breast a little more. Besides that this is awesome! What did you use to make this?

Wow, I love the light pouring down into that darkness. The coloring is especially nice although I am of course also amazed by how you made a full body shot of a scene that is a lot more zoomed in and still managed to make it so recognizable. I love the bubbles too :love:

It's funny, I've actually been drawing the scene right before this scene :) to take up time (and to practice) I've been animating the part where she swims backwards (right before she and Flounder start "dancing" ...only Flounder won't be included...:( )
