The Little Mermaid - Redo by KatieAlves The Little Mermaid - Redo by KatieAlves

I never really liked my design for the Little Mermaid I did a few years ago, So I re-did it! Let me know which look you like better, old or new? (old: katiealves.deviantart.com/art/… )

So on the left eye, I've got Ariel on the rock with the waves crashing around her. Then on the right eye, is the scene where Eric impales Ursula with the ship and she pulls it down into the water. 

I originally had Ariel on the rock, just like it was shown in the movie, but you couldn't really tell what it was, so I had to add her tail.

I think I like this one more, because your skills have majorly improved with this one. And I just love all the purple on the Ursula eye. (:

Also, I really like both of them, but my heart is leaning just a little towards the older one.
Both are absolutely stunning though.

I like the other bright colors in the old one and the pose of Ariel better but I love this one looking like the beginning of the story and the end. I think they are both amazing and you should be proud of them both.

I like them both. the old one seems like shes wanting to begin and her pal is on the other side(of the eye) which is cute  =]
and this new one seems like it shows her tasting this new life but showing horror(in the other eye) is waiting for her.
I love them both, very beautiful. I am a male and wouldn't mind have either the old one or new one on me  ;]

I love the redo! The bright blue and purple work a lot better for the movie than the dimmer color you used before. I also love the swosshing lines of the waves on the left. I don't know how you did that, but it's a beautiful detail!

Also, having both Ariel and the ship in silhouette is a lovely unifying touch!

I liked the mermaid of your last one, but the ship here. I think you just tried to put too many tiny details (fish) and it just looked blue with a few dots. The ship is far better.

This is gorgeous!  I love the details in this, but I feel like I like the old design's colours more.  I like the gradient of the water and how the colourful leaves accent the art (in the old one).  They're both really well done!

Love the little mermaid! :3

I like the composition of the old one better, and the execution of the new one better. It's really well done, but it seems a little more disjointed and less unified than the previous version.

Wow all I have got to say is that you got talent!

I know for sure that I can't do that with my own eyeshadow to save my live xD

Anyway, I absolutely adore Ariel! This is definitely going to be one of my favs! :D

Personally I like both versions :) Ursula bringing down the ship over there looks frigging back ass but the undersea highlights from where the light/sun hits it is just incredible to me. It's all so pretty!!! And looking at her on the rock perched up like that... You know everyone is thinking the same thing right now. ;p

I love both of them but if I had to pick one...it'd be the old one just because I love how the colors of that seen flow from one eye to the other and match very well.
