Ariel: Speechless by ArtistAbe Ariel: Speechless by ArtistAbe
I don't know about you, but I found Ariel pretty darn attractive when she was wearing that sail as a dress :)  The Farrah Fawcett poster was very memorable and iconic vfwblog.com/wp-content/uploads… , but I wasn't much of a Charlie's Angels fan so I put my favorite Disney gal in her place :D

While first sketching this, I had Ariel in the original Farrah Fawcett pose with her left arm up and her hand in her hair.  As much as I'd like for it to be obviously identified as the famous poster, I wanted it to be unique to the little mermaid.  The scene and animations of her pressing and tapping her hand on her throat to tell Prince Eric that she couldn't speak was always a cute lil gesture to me and put that in.  As always the background took the longest.  Even though she's covering majority of it, I still drew it all out because I'm a bit obsessive :P Then there's the last minute additions, I just can't help but add after calling a piece done.  This time it was Prince Eric and Max waaaay in the background :)

This is the face of a woman who will someday murder another woman for flirting with her man.

Ariel was always adorable, and I agree about the sail. :) Didn't even notice Eric and Max back there at first. That got a laugh out of me. XD

Yeah, legs and a vagina can really add up to your hotness level. xD Ariel was nice and all, but for me my cartoon crush will always be Esmeralda from Hunchback. But Elsa from Frozen is aclose second place. :P

A beautiful redhead, that is clearly naked, covering herself in a makeshift covering that is threatening to fall apart at an unguarded moment?   Now what could be attractive about that?  :D

This is great! I love what you did with everything in the end, and her smile is infectious! Noticing Eric and Max watching her in the background was a very nice touch, that's usually one of the things that remind me of you whenever I see an art piece! :D

Haha, I mean you like to put some kind of comedic element or character in your backgrounds. Be it those two staring at Ariel or what I assume is you being startled in the Disney Villain Girls background. You make paying attention to the details more fun. :D
