ariel one last time by loish ariel one last time by loish
i got a note the other day pestering me to draw more disney fanart, and i was about to respond saying "sorry but i'm totally DONE drawing disney fanart" when i suddenly remembered that i had a half-finished drawing of ariel lying around, the colored version of this - [link] and because i can never let things be, i ended up picking at it until i came up with this.

so i guess this is my goodbye to disney fanart for now haha. i got it out of my system and i don't plan on doing it again soon. so it would be great if the disney fanart requests could just stop. STOP!!!!!! FOREVER!!

done in done in opencanvas 1.1 and photoshop 7 (i switched between the programs a bunch of times) with a wacom tablet. opencanvas is a simple small painting program that you can google if you want to know more. used the default brushes in both programs. textures from cgtextures.com; for tips on how to add textures check out [link]

Wow, Ariel's really introverted and interesting. She's got something to her. Fan art can be super exciting sometimes.

I have a quick question:
when you say you use default brushes, did you use square ones, or round. When i look at the painting i think that i see square brush strokes (unless its just your style, in which case- this is a silly question:P), but you said default, and my default on PS7 is round.
I love the square stroke look, but i haven't been able to get it with any default brushes in PS7 so far:(

Just wondering,
And thanks in advance if you have time to answer:)

Yush, I love it!

You know that fin-thingee around Ariel's waist has always bothered me? I'm so glad to see a pic where it's not there, makes me feel so much better :heart:. I also love how she's frowning, it shows how she's tired of always being in the limelight all the time. Such a perfect way to bid farewell to disney princess art. Good job Loish for sticking to what you believe in!

I saw a He-Man on DA that looks like Van Goh! Its one of my faves if you want to look. O and orko is oilish to but he's photoshoped! How do people do it?

My 2 Dragons (in the town fair's art show right now) Hey crystal wait for me (in my :spotlight-right::gallery::spotlight-left:) was painted in Oils. Not Photoshop.

My Margays are gauche.

No I mean the ? is, how did you get your work in Photoshop looking so oilish? I could get a watercolor to look like oils! But Photoshop itself? I've gots to work on that. Like what brushes did you use?

info is all in the description.. but basically i used opancanvas which gives an oilish effect plus textures that make it all look more organic.

I think ghiti is right. I think her arm is just way 2 skinney.
But I just love her hair. Ohhhhhhh!! Color isn't well blended like an impressionistic kind of touch. No you don't have to fully blend things to make people or things look realistic. I am still thinking I have to blend things to the max so I feel I have to continue to work on my blending. But after looking at your realisticly awesome work, I should have known better. WOWWWWWWWWW! I just can't believe it! What did you do to get Arial looking so bad!! I mean details details, I want to know all!

I like this one way better than many of the other Disney-artists on dA. She looks more or less natural, when it comes to composition and so on. She's not as skinny as a stick, like many of those I've seen have been.

woow... i love the way you continued her hair color down her body... so very realistic to objects underwater, and how when there are gaps or when light can get though objects, they cast the color underneath... a very realistic drawing... i like the almost water color feel to it as well :D

all I can say is, never say never. Unless it is in the context of that phrase, which in itself is ridiculous because you're saying it twice.
