The Little Mermaid by JohnathanSung The Little Mermaid by JohnathanSung
the little mermaid
aprox 45 mins to an hr,
nothin too detailed, had to get this done before the day ended. its abit rough but i think it has potential.

when u look at the ocean, u see its relentless, its bigger than us and it never stops, wave after wave
endlessly changing,
its restless.. frantic, turning, loud and scary at times,
and grey and shite others,
it can be cold or warm,
its clear here and murky there,
it can look red, green, purple, and black etc...etc..

and every now and then, it can be still, calm, nice, peaceful and beautiful,
even though u know its going to change again soon..so all u can do is enjoy the moment, when ur in it. and while it lasts.

(sigh..)

A bit rough? This is simply gorgeous. It is so dreamy and it conveys what Ariel is, the spirit of the sea. Beautiful.

I don't particularly like how people draw mermaids for the most part. Usually rather simple and plain and boring. But you changed my mind. This is one of the very first pictures of a mermaid that I can actually like. Excellent work. Thank you for making this!

And your artist statement; It's like a take on how to explain life.. Such simple explainations, but perfect nonetheless! x

I love this! Your impressionist(?) take on Ariel is gorgeous! Love the colours and flowing swirlage; did you use traditional media, or a 'puter program? Whichever, love it! xxx

Not all the time, but unless they are designed to look more like a fish I've never seen an ugly one.
This was just a really good picture.

Um, no, it's not dirty. She was sitting on a rock just like this and the only thing that was different was like a city and a castle on the horizon. So she was, I guess dreaming about living on land...

Yeah you should, it balance out the stress of maths and doing science and english and all. but its still hard at the same time.. there some good tutorials for this on 'idrawgirls.com' sounds sketchy but he's good.
