I set this as my wallpaper and I love it!
Ah, the days of Disney!! The good ol' days.
she's so lovely
Oh my freakin' heck, I ADORE this Ariel!
I was going to point out that Mischief had an artist who'd redrawn this and 'Wasp' by you but I see it's been said already XD
I hope the matter has been settled, otherwise, your piece is beautiful and your whole gallery is always nice to come back to every so often just to admire
Love that hair!
Yup that's lovely...I saw this one on Mischief too! Very nice application similar to SAI...
Did you give permission for the makers of the Mischief drawing program to trace your work?
Hi Alice, one of your fans sent us an email about this. We have been trying to contact you; a young artist who worked for us used your painting as inspiration when we were testing Mischief and we loved it so much we adopted it as our logo. At the time we didn't know that the there was an original source, but we have since acknowledged your contribution in the image gallery on our web site and would love to connect with you (I've tried sending messages via deviant art and facebook several times but don't have a more direct way to contact you). Please contact us at email@example.com. We apologize for any offence or trespass, we sincerely did not intend any!
Absolutely stunning work. I think this captures both the whimsy and depth of her character. Well done!
Another comment already pointed this out, but I wanted to add more details: The art program Mischief is using a redraw of this piece (and Wasp as well) to sell their product. They show someone redrawing it using their program on their homepage. Here's the link www.madewithmischief.com/ with the finished redraw being at about 1:29. Sorry to bother you if you know/ gave permission.
Its so Beautiful. I love the colors and how they blend together well
This is the most beautiful portrait of Ariel I've ever seen.
Also, if you keep watching, it has another piece of artwork by this person named "Carly Sanker," and it looks a lot like your "Wasp" piece.
I can't "favorite" this enough! You are very talented and have a wonderful gift of capturing their personalities while exhibiting such breathtaking beauty.
Ariel looks so pretty! *_*
Wow!! I love how much detail you put in this shot!
Oh my gosh I'm in love.
this really inspire.
I love this pictore for a long time
this is absolutely amazing! thanks a lot!!
This too beautiful.
Beautiful I love how bright and pink her hair looks Your use of color is always absolutely stunning.
she is breathtaking! O.O #love
A beautiful gallery - this is the stand out image - the look in her eyes is exquisite
Excellent Thank you so much
That hair! It is at its shampoo-model best when she's singing 'Part of your world', and looks exactly like that here - all billowy and voluminous, in that rich ruby red. A stunning piece of a stunning young lady.
I love how you drew her face here.
