A realistic portriat of her was not only a fantastic idea, the details and "humanizing" aspects of Ariel's features show amazing skill. You did an amazing job.

there is an Ariel in one of Shakespeare's plays: Ariel
 The Tempest. a powerful soul who tends to give power over to others.  love to help and often feel indebted to those who are kind to you. Ariel is playful, friendly, and fiercely loyal. When you can shake off the feelings of guilt, you are a joyful, free spirit.

Very beautiful rendering!! I can see Ariel there- her face looks very similar to how the character looks!

Do you plan on selling this as a print? I'd love to have that in my living room!

was it a painting that's been altered? 
you can tell that the hair is different from the rest of the picture because the cracks do not extend past the hair the way they would on a normal painting from the era it looks to be painted in. 
while extraordinarily well done it clashes with itself so i was wondering. and the seashell kinda gives it away.
