Ariel Obsession

I've always been a huge fan of Disney. I saw Aladdin when I was 2 at the cinema and I've been hooked ever since.
This past month I've become "obsessed" with drawing Ariel :)
She's definitely one of the most favourite Disney females to draw. On deviantart, there are thousands of illustrations of her. She's very popular!
I love her. She's so beautiful to draw. Glen Keane and Mark Henn are big inspirational people in my life.

Speaking of Mark Henn, I created a Facebook Appreciation group for him a few months ago. Recently, many well-known figures from the Disney company have joined! I was thrilled! It may have been one of the most surreal and best days of my life to see all their names! :) Just to see they had Facebook was kind of bizarre. This internet business is craaaazy :P

If anyone out there loves Mark Henn and his work for Disney Animation then please join! :)

But moving on---! Here's an Ariel sketch page I drew a week or so ago...

I love drawing lots of different views when sketching. I don't feel satisfied drawing just one! I especially love drawing the face to try and get different expressions and impressions. In these Ariel skecthes I'm drawing without reference; though for any other Disney character I'd probably use references for things like costume and hair. I don't think I'll ever grow tired of drawing Ariel. Or Disney-related things for that matter. :)

Here's another page of Ariel sketches I drew last night...

I've also been planning a big Disney project...I've had the idea for a week or so, and I've been planning and designing and sketching those ideas down. I'll upload the sketches soon.
It involves all the singing Disney females from Snow White -> Tiana :)
I can't wait to really get started on it :)


  1. Love the sketches--can't wait to see more! :)

  2. I'm an Ariel addict too :3 I know this is ages since you've posted this but - awesome sketches! <3
