Chow 127 :: The Little Mermaid
ROUND #127 :: Hans Christian Andersen's 'The Little Mermaid'-------------
Hans Christian Andersen's 'The Little Mermaid'.
Please keep in mind that this is *not* the Disney version, and I don't want to see anything even remotely related to it.
We need Two Character Designs for this: her mermaid form, and her maiden form. You may want to do this more as a straight-forward, orthographic design, but you are not required to.
FOLLOW THE TOPIC.

The way the deadline works: if deadline is on a Sunday and your image is posted on that Sunday 23:59 your local time it's a good entry.
In fact - as long there is Sunday somewhere on the planet your entry is ok. I will make the poll sometimes Monday evening my time (GMT - 8 ) yet I'll have a look at the last entries.
POST YOUR FINALS IN THE FINALS THREAD!
Remember to include your nickname in the filename.
About quality - as general rule: if your shapes and values are not decent - you are out. Watch proportions, perspective etc. we need perfectly readable shapes and coherent, consistent values.
BE PROFESSIONAL - only finished and good quality entries will be taken to the poll. Oregano and Daestwen (yay!) will make the selection.

What a wonderful story! I'm going to go see if I can get my hands on it and read the real version. This sounds fun!
EDIT: found it, if anyone wants to take a look

Aw man.. great topic.. I've always wanted to do a non-disney version, more in keeping with the original folklore tale as told by HCA. Might have to crowbar in some time for this one!
Okay some initial sketches for the mermaid half of her.
Okay and a final sketch/linework based on the small thumb in the middle where she's brushing her hair. Wanted to stick with something in keeping with the tale that wouldn't look a million miles out in an old edition Hans Christian Anderson book. There's also a hint of nouveau border, which is how I intend to link the two images. Now all I gotta do is finish!
Okay.. not a chance in hell I'll finish this for tomorrow, but I am going to finish it. Just about to transfer it to board and watercolour it in a Mucha kind of flat colour style. Had to flip both drawings, which is a pain, but it doesn't look too bad.
