Seadreaming by kelleybean86 Seadreaming by kelleybean86
"She was a strange child, quiet and thoughtful...she cared for nothing excepting a beautiful marble statue. It was the representation of a handsome boy, carved out of pure white stone, which had fallen to the bottom of the sea from a wreck. She planted by the statue a rose-colored weeping willow. It grew splendidly, and very soon hung its fresh branches over the statue, almost down to the blue sands."
-From The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Andersen

This is very cool! I love you you didn't draw Ariel with red hair... too mainstream... :)
The statue also reminds me of the pool that turns everything to solid gold if you touch the water in the Narnia series.

so lovely. Love the soft edges in the periphery. Also as a side note, after having my new wacom for a year, i figured out that I had the proportions wrong so my circles were actually ovals...ugh. Any how, looks awesome.

Very beautiful, the colors you used add to the mood for sure. I love her expression, I've never read that book but its as if shes checking in on the statue, making sure he likes his surroundings. I love her translucent tail too. Nice work. :)
