Wanna see them dancing... by Elf-in-mirror Wanna see them dancing... by Elf-in-mirror
Continuing my Disney/underwater/mermaid theme :P

First of all: I can't take credit for the lineart here! I found this beautiful pencil drawing by DaiskiAnimeJ and she gave me the permission to color it! Thankyouthankyouthankyou!

The original is here: [link]

Anyways, this is still somewhat a VIP, but I'm a bit stuck, so don't be afraid to point out any mistakes, make suggestions, etc :)

This is great! The illuminocity of the water making it electric blue really makes it more dramatic. Also thee ariel you drew is so cute and pretty! Keep up the good work :)

I really love this coloring... and the drawing itself! Both show a bit of a darker side of her longing, a sort of tortured jealousy... it's hauntingly beautiful. Good work. <3

I really love this colouring, it's so pretty and, can I say, full of emotion. Also this lighting what comes from the music box/"statue" (or whatever it is ever is) is pretty. Great job. :)

Ariel has been one of my all time favorite fictional characters ever since I was 5.
The hair is just magnificent!

Haha, me too! I was about 5 when the original movie came out and, well, the next 5 years I basically wanted to be a mermaid.
