The palette of this work - muted night colors - drew me at first. Then the opalescent skin of the creature behind the glass. her impossibly red hair, liquid blue cat-eyes. Then I looked at the composition, and love how the piece opens for you so that you must inevitable fall into her and pass between her bloody talons to her deadly lips. My impression changed from an abstract creature looking out from a stylized forest to some immortal creature trapped, perhaps in a glass coffin, while the fallen leaves bury her (un)alive. Whatever the artists intent, the piece radiates immortality and malice in a startlingly direct way and alluring way, much like an old fairy tale.

In first place I certainly need to say that the artist that made such an artwork and used this kind of a title for it is extraordinary person by himself! I wanted to make an emphasis on the singularity of the drawing because of the evident fact.
I am sure of 99% of people associate Ariel with "The Little Mermaid" that is an animated cartoon. So this name is like a sinonim of a very well-known creation of Disney. I wanted to remind that the little mermaid was very romantic, sensitive and kind creature.
I realy respect the authors creativity and valour. Of course not every person would set aside all his reminiscences of classical Ariel and get used to something very different from it.
I didn't like the cartoon very much (nevertheless have watched it very often in my childhood) and I'm just facinated with this work. I even may named it the chef d'oeuvre! I love it. In fact this Ariel looks much more like a mermaid from myths and legends, much more real. Colours are not only classic (I ment the red hair) but also very heartfelt. So her ice-cold eyes are lookin all throuth you and they are purely inhuman in spite of this is SHE.
The theme and staging are just superb! I really want to say, what an imagination/fantasy does human need to perfectly combine all the details in this painting?
Oustanding work! Sometimes I say that if the person would not like what I wrote about this or that artwork it won't be the worth day of my life. Now I really want to note that there are some works, as they are not like watchers expect to see something that they are used to, shouldn't be left out without any interest in it. This incredible work is one of them!

This is magnificent! I'm gonna buy a print and try to set it up so it looks as if she's staring out of a mirror. 

The way the colours have been done are absolutely sublime.

Huh.. Even though she doesn't make me think mermaid so much as beast tamer or druid due to the border. I love that you broke away from the "traditional" little mermaid style and made her your own.. and holy cow does she look beautiful in a feral, predatory way. ^.^ I am currently working on a project for personal use only where I remake certain magic cards and your version of Ariel would be perfect. Would it be okay for me to use this piece? I can show you the card when I finish it up so you can see how it turned out. Thanks, no matter what your answer for showing this piece off. :)

there is something really indescribably sexy about this, i think it's the eyes, they really pull you in and the hint of light around the hair softens some of that sinister aura around her and it's just simply amazing work, truly fantastic!
