Wiz: "in the 19th century, a man called hans Christian anderson wrote disturbing fairy tales that went onto become disney classics"
Boomstick: "1 of them was called the little mermaid"
Wiz: "in the 90's, disney made an animated film called the little mermaid"
Boomstick: "then in the 10's, a psychopath named gen orobachi did his own take on the little mermaid"
Wiz: " in the little mermaid, ariel became infatuated with a prince"
Boomstick: "in the little mermaid based arc, sayaka became infatuated with a violinist with a career threatening injury"
Wiz: " so in order to be with her love, she went to a sea witch called ursula to make a potion to make her human"
Boomstick: " so in order to heal her love, she got a visit by a cute eldritch abomination called KYUUUUUUUUUUUBEEEEEYYYY"
Wiz: " but in the end, ariel, in the original story, was cursed by her grandfather poseidon to do 1000 good deeds before passing on, whilst in the film, she gets a good ending with her lover and has a daughter"
Boomstick: " as for sayaka, she became a witch based off ariel called octavia von schendorf, who then becomes a persona expy of thantos and that was after guarding her best friend from further threats from kyubey"

I would be sooo pissed if they put Ariel into a Death Battle...

Kida or Mulan, sure, but not Ariel.  :no:

A lovely rendition of a classic character. I too grab a lot of textures from CGTextures too. Great site with plenty of content to use.

I love all your work! The use of color is brilliant! Do you mind my asking of how you color these; which brushes you use? It's got a lovely texture, particularly on her skin.

for this, i think i just used the standard round brush set to a small size and crosshatched a lot! that's how i used to draw back then. a lot of the texture is also from applying textures to the picture :]
thanks for the compliments!
