Well done. I like how you did it. the lighting in this is very well done. The loose bit of hair that hangs in front of her face could use a little bit of work. I also think that the shell swimsuit bother me. But the biggest thing that think could have been pushed more would be the hair. the hair does not feel like it is floating on the water or under the water. From the piece I feel she just came out of the water so her hair would be wet. And it dose not look like it. I would look up in the movie when she comes out of the water for the first time. My teacher told me the animators for the movie had a hard time with her hair. So I would look at that.
Now i love the piece the lighting is cool. I think it be cool if you added the refection of her face there. Also I would have added a little bit of stars like you did with the moon. I would have keep simple but... Just my thought. Great job i think you did a great job. Love the piece

Reminds me of the song "I know how the moon must feel" from Thomas and the magic railroad.

I got a romance story with two characters of mine and it also involves the moon reflecting on water. But the stars too play a role.

At first i thought it was Little Mermaid and Swan Princess crossover. Odette turned back into human by moonlight, so... Ariel could be turned into human by it as well! :D
