I hope you like it!

I've wanted to draw "realistic" Ariel for a long time, but I never got enough courage to do it =/ well, this was a good practise ^^

I think I can honestly say this is magnificent.
I can't say there's something I don't like about this pic. That may not be constructive criticism, but screw that! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" title=":D (Big Grin)" />
The colors are so vivid and I love that. The contrast of her blue eyes and the red hair with the yellow little fishes looks gorgeous.
The details are also well made, like the little bubbles. I love her small corner smile. And the fact that the fishes are swimming through her hair. In fact, I think the hair is the thing I like the most in this pic, it's so thick and the waviness makes it look like waves so it's a really nice touch.
All in all; wonderful work! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)" />

Thank you :) I think it's good to hear the good points in the pic as well as the bad ones, I can learn from there to know where I did right and maybe use similar techniques on the next pic :)

I'll get right into it.
Anatomy: Almost perfect! The eyes are just a bit too far apart, and the nose is just off...I can't put my finger on how, though.

Color:Very nice! Now, this is a style preference, but I really don't like the background. It's great, but the flat color changes. Also, I think it could use a bit of cleaning up whre the colors stray like on the back fish


Shading: only a little to say here. I think that the shading on the face or arm should remain consistant with the other, because It throws off the picture with the two shading styles.

Other: I think you should tone down the fish colors, as it draws away from Ariel's face. If you wanted her face to be the focus point, then make it the first thing we look at. After all, white on red is a high contast, and our eyes are naturally drawn to areas of high contrast.


As a closing, I love the bubbles. They're just so...bubbly! Great job!

Why I can't see this on the deviation?
Ok...
Well, first, the eyes are not too far apart, trust me, they are not :)

shading, I have no idea what you're talking about.

The fish are little bright yeah, but tropical fish are usually.

What's wrong with the nose? Please do tell me. If you're wrighting a critique you should know. I know it's not perfect (nothing that I do is, that not my aim) but I think that's best nose I've done so far, so I'm getting better.

"but the flat color changes", yeah, it's supposed to.

Thank you very much for my first critique!

I just did a double take when I saw this picture. I have a printed painting hanging in my room that I bought from someone at a fair. It is practically the same picture, and if you really are the artist, then someone out there has copied and sold your work. :O
