Anastasia is the one who's different. She isn't a Disney princess. Anastasia was made by Don Bluth and fox

Wow, they're all gorgeous as mermaids! I especially love the looks of Rapunzel, Tiana, Moana, and Belle. I think I know what fish Moana's tail resembles: Did you by chance base her look off the reef trigger fish? (...Or in Hawaiian: the humuhumunukunukuapua'a, or "trigger fish with a snout like a pig").

Actually I'm not sure ! I googled tropical fish and looked at the results :) I don't remember if I found one I liked and used the same colors, or if I found several and kind of merged the colors !

I love this so much. Princesses + mermaids is always a win in my book, but you created great designs on top of two of my favorite aesthetics! Absolutely lovely.

I like them all!

Merida and Pocahontas have salmon-like fins
Tiana is a catfish,
Anastasia is an angel fish
Belle is a goldfish,
and Moana is the most exotic fish imaginable!
