Disney Elementals Ariel by CeruleanRaven Disney Elementals Ariel by CeruleanRaven
Alright here's Ariel. I had this basic pose and color scheme drawn up when I first got the idea for the project about a month ago. The water elemental is an obvious choice for her, I originally was going to paint her more as a fish with swirling moss around her. How boring would that have been?

So trying to incorporate actual water, and making it look like water was/is incredibly difficult. I still don't think I pulled it quite off. If there is one thing I learned its that I can't paint water very well. D:

Hope you enjoy!

To: HeartofaWriter, Sorry she isn't commanding a storm! D:

I think it ends up looking like soap a bit, but frankly it looks really good, and the colors are really eye catching

Now that i think about it, it might explains why she wants to get out of the water so bad.

gaaah the colour palette
so pretty and vibrant ;_;

water is incredibly difficult to draw, but you did a very good on. a tid bit more shine, and you would've done it perfectly.

Good suggestion! I might go back into these and clean them all up. That could be something I could do in the future. I want to make them more cohesive.

Considering she's water swimming around in more water, I'd say you did a fantastic job making her stand out. This picture is incredibly dynamic, and certainly catches the attention.
