pinup ariel by loish pinup ariel by loish
somehow disney fanart still creeps into my gallery every now and then. i'm pretty sick right now and this is my 'comfort art' to distract me while i'm lying here in bed like a vegetable. a portrait of the little mermaid (ariel) inspired by gil elvgren pinups, although i didn't reference his work.

drawn in photoshop CS3 with an intuos3 tablet. textures from cgtextures.com , tips on how to use textures can be found here - [link] and for other tips check out my f.a.q - [link]

Man, just flipping through your gallery is better than any art book I can think of;) (Wink) ! I finally get to Ariel and I think, "look at this stuff. Isn't it neat?"

I especially like the way you did the fin(?) thing at the top of her tail, for some reason, and her eyes. They draw you in.

You are an extremely talented artist. (I've sort of been creeping through your gallery today). I have to say, your style just. Blows me away. I was looking at the drawing of Ariel you did in the pink dress, where you compared your style in 2006 to your style now. I am stunned. I loved the first one, but the new one. just. Wow.
This is a fantastic piece of artwork. I love the shading, the coloring, the "underwater" effect, and how you drew her eyes, to point out a few details that stick out to me.
