This is an illustration I did a while back after reading Hans Christian Andersen's "The Little Mermaid" Which is quite a bit darker than the disney story. I was inspired by the overall melancholy of the theme, and painted this as a result.

Really nice image, very gloomy. The underwater effect is really well done, perspective and proportions are also really well put together. The background also seems massive even though there isn't that much in it really. Just well choosen colors. Great work.

As someone that always draws bright and colourful I often enjoy pictures like these the most, subtle colours, a sense of feeling and atmosphere. It seems all the original fairy tales have that foreboding feel.

thanks! yeah, i normally work pretty bright as well. Here i wanted to really see what i could pull off with a limited palette. yeah, if you haven't read the original Little Mermaid, check it out... it's pretty brutal, honestly.
