I think it is very clear that I love the Little Mermaid. Haha. I have since I was little and my parents taped (yes, with a VCR) the film on tv and I played it over and over again until the ol' tape was well and truly wrecked and my parents were sick of the fathoms below songs. Strangely enough, it seems that every year I somehow manage to do a little mermaid piece. I'm happy to say that every time I do, I can be proud of the amount of skill developments and style improvements I have made.
This started off as just a little digital painting project to get my skills up again and over the last month or so, it's become a major project that I have been in love with one minute and cursing the next (how many times I changed her hands, I do not honestly know).
Anyway, this was all done in Photoshop CS4 using my Intuos 4 Wacom tablet.
Critiques are appreciated! I know I could dabble with this a little longer but I'm about to run out of steam so. I'm pleased with the end result for now!
