To Have That Hope by dEeYaN To Have That Hope by dEeYaN
“Why have not we an immortal soul?” asked the little mermaid mournfully, “I would give gladly all the hundreds of years that I have to live, to be a human being only for one day, and to have the hope of knowing the happiness of that glorious world above the stars.”


This is what I do when I'm supposed to be studying >_< Wasn't really supposed to be the little mermaid. Just started drawing and this came out. Though I was half analysing 'The Little Mermaid' from a world context at my friend's house while she was trying to do her extension english so that may be why it turned out that way. Dunno why I put that excerpt in either T-T But I :heart: Hans Christian Andersen so there ;)

So... it's a mermaid... Probably the best proportion I've ever done though! As in... head not too big, legs (or the tail thats there instead) not too long, and look at the HANDS!!! :heart: the left hand (her right). No reference whatsoever too! I think it may be still a bit too small but who cares? It's the best hand I've ever drawn in my life. And I actually drew the other arm! Was going to leave it out and cheat but I didn't!! For some reason I've drawing the same expression lately though. And yes, I know the tail looks wrong, couldn't be bothered to fix it... X_x Anyway, no more ranting...

Should probably submit it under Anime, instead of fantasy... But but but... It just doesn't feel right...

Okay, now that biology is off my back. I'll actually put down some constructive critisisisisisim. I like the torso particularly, although her head is placed slightly high/is a bit wide. erm, I've already said this but she needs a bit more hips. favorite part are probably the scales....which look like bubbles to me. *bubble* =\ >___< I really should do some work.
