A Mermaid's Wish by Qinni A Mermaid's Wish by Qinni
"She dreamed of becoming a human someday, not realizing that the human she longed for already loved another. "




I love the original little mermaid; It was seriously my childhood favourite fairytale full of bitter-sweetness. I cried buckets of tears when I first read it. xD;;

I think drawing the water broke my hand. argh D;~ I should probably draw more in-water stuff cause water is SERIOUSLY hard and I need to practice xD;; >A<;;

Done in SAI

My Tumblr (I blog/reblog more than just my art though; I also reblog inspirations I find or photography I like :))

My other works:


Thank you for dropping by :D

ps. I tried the pose myself and it worked for me o.o;~ Also worked for my mom, lol.

If she is talking about the original Little Mermaid, then 15 years old.

On Instagram Ponggolohuta is holding a challenge this week and it looks like a poster named Msbnw used this artwork as stock for that challenge. I don't see any credit for your photo, username, or even a disclaimer. I immediately recognized your work from several years ago and went searching for this picture to tell you. Do they have your permission to use it?

This is amazing!  The water is fabulous!  You did a great job!  I love how her lower half is fin in the water and leg in the air.  Awesome!  Her hair is fabulous as well!

Love the water texture, and how her legs are semi transitioning from a mermaid tail into legs still :)

Still one of my favorite stories/movies. I grew up with the anime style little mermaid instead of the Disney one, but I love both movies :)

I love how you made it so that the part of her tail out of the water is a leg but the parts in the water are still tail, that's so creative!

Beautiful work. You can see and feel the sadness of the mermaid. The original was amazing, one of my favorites as well. I love how you did the tail to leg transition. Even if the water broke your hand (I'm sorry to hear that) it is amazing! Both realistic but having the appeal of a drawing :3 Heart 
I would of loved to see this as an illustration in a book oooh, stars
