The Little Mermaid

Dec 15, 2009

New illustration! The original story of the Little Mermaid is from Hans Christian Anderson's fairy tales. That version is actually quite sad, the mermaid doesn't marry her prince in the end but dissolves into a spirit of the air. This mermaid is goldfish-like, I wanted to stay away from blues and greens to contrast with all the water, then and after creating her I realized how similar it is to the Japanese animated film, Ponyo, where a little boy falls in love with a tiny goldfish girl. (Also based on the little mermaid) The artwork in that film is amazing!
