I love designing outfits, though it is often quite time-consuming. I thought it would be easy creating the color palette as well since that was basically done for me, but even that took far more effort than I expected. Luckily, Photoshop allows you to experiment with different hues and values easily.
There were a few things I wanted to add, but didn't, such as an iPod for Rapunzel and a vintage camera for Belle. Ariel's wave shirt is based off of Superman's "S" shield, and of course her scarf is Flotsam/Jetsam.
I was going to do color holds on practically everything for that Disney look, but it would had added a lot more time, so I chose my spots instead.

One of my dreams is to meet Glen Keane. "The Little Mermaid" was what inspired me to become an artist and storyteller. I adore Disney (and Pixar) movies. I wish I had more time to do fan art, but hopefully this illustration gets it out of my system for a while.
