A couple of friends of mine showed me this image meme from Tumblr of Ariel saying various hipster things and it cracked me up.
The Little Mermaid was what made me want to be an artist, so I absolutely adore Ariel, Glen Keane, Alan Menken, Howard Ashman, and all of the other incredibly talented people that began Disney's animation renaissance.
I wanted to join in on the fun, but in my own way. I really enjoy researching clothes, so this was also a fun exercise to do in my free time. I plan on doing 6 or so, but we'll see! If more come up that I find are hilarious, I'll keep going with it.
I realized that I have yet to draw a happy and bubbly Ariel. Perhaps after this series!
Late Night Light Bulbs
I could have modeled watches if art hadn't twisted my hand into a gnarled monkey claw.
