Ariel with pearl earring by Elf-in-mirror Ariel with pearl earring by Elf-in-mirror
Many thanks to H.C Andersen, Disney and Vermeer :D

(I know she doesn't look like much the Disney version. She's not supposed to. Artistic licence ftw ;) )

Luring, you have captured that seductiveness that was known so well in sailor stories about mermaids!

Wow Ariel is so seductive here. Artistic licence for the win indeed! I love the bright green earring.

I love how you aren't afraid to make Disney characters your own!  The shimmering highlights in her hair and on her shepp are GORGEOUS!  And I love the pinkishness in her skin.  And those earrings really stand out, plush the water is so soft and beautiful.  Everything just looks so elegant.  My only 'issue' is that she doesn't look very wet.  I mean, she doesn't have to be SOAKED, but she is in the water.  It would be cool if she looked a bit wetter...but honestly this is better than anything I could do so who am I to judge?
