Geeky


This piece that has been on the brain for at least a year and a half is amusing to me because everybody in hind-sight was an awkward pre-teen. And we all know that if we were to see Ariel in her pre-teen years she would be the most shunned adolescent because she was a huge human-nerd.

So there you have it.

Sorry about the color quality...Watercolor is really hard to scan, which is really urksome.

This is so beautiful, and I love her I love man shirt. I always loved the little mermaid, and Ariel would have totally been a nerd! I hope your Dad feels better soon.

I really like this piece. Wonderful character and concept. If you bring the scan into Photoshop, you can easily bring the colors back in using color balance and hue/saturation. I do it all the time to clean up my works and bring them back to their original colors.
