Ariel - PurePeachy Collab

FANART Collaboration.

This piece started from :iconpurepeachy:'s [link]
I adore working with her and coloring for her. I wanted to color this as soon as I saw those tiny gorgeous hands. Gestures are so hard to nail down.
Please take a moment to check her gallery at: "[link]"

Btw, if she wants to submit this in her own gallery she has full permission to do so, obviously.

FUN FACT: Did you know that before Disney's Ariel, her name used to be a predominantly male name. My theory is that that's why Sebastian has to whisper her name to Eric. And it explains his "Well, that's kinda pretty" ^^

I thought so. Names that end in 'el' tend to mean 'of God', and those aren't given to to women.

yeah, in Hebrew Ariel=Lion of God, or something along those lines (ac. to :)

I like it!! I think maybe a few more shades to her hair could also be quite nice :)

What was her original name?
madam-marla's avatar
I don't know. Wasn't it always Ariel? I just meant to say that the name was rare for a girl before Disney named their heroine that :)
Agent505's avatar
True - I think they picked it because of 'air' in it - plus it started with A. If you listen carefully, Sebastian always calls her 'R-iel' not "Airel"

But damn it sure fits her well
