My Prince by darkmello My Prince by darkmello
just want to draw mermaid and her prince, at last she own him:p
cause I hate the bad ending from the "mermaid" original story-__-"

I think the lighting and the colors is kinda messy and so boring, blue everywhere...:bucktooth:

thanks to ~sherley-natasha who gave me some references, it helps a lot :D
done in corel painter IX

c & c are welcomed:)

Truly beautiful! And positively different from the original story~ poor gal ends up turning to sea foam so she didn't have to kill her love, so I love the irony you out in!! Bit dark and cruel... But your design for the mermaid makes it lovely!

And seeing how you posted this picture many years ago, what do you think of it now?

you are right!.., i kinda felt bad for the little mermaid,.. i mean she almost sacrificed everything just to be with her prince.... i mean its kinda nice if she had a alternate ending!!....like seriously" everone should be rewarded for their hardwork"!!!.... it would be nice if there is a dojin for this story, if you know what i mean...

The blue is perfect for this composition, for me is kind of sad, she can keep him, but he can´t live with her without being hurt or die. One of my absolute favorite stories, and beautiful job.

It may have a lot of blue like you said but i think it brings more attention to the bermaids face and the prince's face. The face framed by golden hair was the first thing i looked at.

*fave'd* ... Their hair is beautifully "waterswept," the shades of blue-to-aquamarine are warm and intriguing, genuine care is evident in her face, she's actually making a stab at catching him ...

... and this breaks out of the Ariel-and-Eric scenario which seems to be found behind two-thirds of the merfolk artworks here. Thus it's, well, anything but "boring." What's not to like?

Wow, beautiful! This reminds me of stories where the mermaids would drag men down to the bottom of the sea but would forget that they cannot breathe underwater. Very accurate.

I think the mermaid's hair can be more smoother like
silk, and I believe you have that ability to draw it^^

your drawing always gives me inspirations lol!
I like the way how you present the works!

I really like the fish and the bubbles and the reef and everything, and the mermaid's ear is really cool. One thing I would say is that being underwater makes people's hair wavy, so their hair looks a bit too straight to be natural.
