this idea is stolen from ~Disney-bubbles, who made photomanipulations of the disney princesses as mermaids a while ago.

lineart done with photoshop 7 and coloring a mixture of photoshop and painter 7, where i used the smeary round brush to color. 


[update 22/11/2013] - in light of the whole ROMWE art theft, i just wanted to point out that when i uploaded this in 2005, i said i 'stole' the idea from disney-bubbles jokingly (something she and others understood!). my intention was to credit her and disney for the ideas in this illustration. little did i know this artwork would literally get stolen 8 years later! 
now's also a good time to point out that the lineart for this piece used to be online for people to color if they wanted to. this seemed like a fun and educational thing at the time. my only request was that people would credit me. unfortunately, lots of people didn't do this, and even went so far as to sell their version of this piece, which is not only unfair towards me but also a breach of Disney's intellectual property rights. so if you're looking for the linework, sorry, i just don't share it with anyone anymore! and if you find an illustration being sold somewhere that looks like this drawing but is colored differently, then that is because they used my linework.

I really love this picture...I think I saw it 3 years ago for the first time here on deviantart in all diffrent colors and backgrounds and stuff. I never would've thought it had such a kinda tragic story...

I really love what you do, you have a real talent to create this pieces. It's a shame that people don't respect it, but maybe you should put a watermark to protect your work :/

Romwe did an AWFUL job recreating this. They make enough money they should've asked you and paid you to use the GOOD version of this painting.
