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 :)

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.
