Ariel: Siren of the Deep by steevinlove Ariel: Siren of the Deep by steevinlove
As Many of you know the Original Ariel was deleted from deviantArt because it was deemed "inappropriate" somehow, so Instead of getting all riled up, I decided to draw a new more "appropriate" rendition of the Little Mermaid. The Original (which can be found here [link]) Attempted to show the transformation that our Ariel would take from mermaid to human. Here I show the fulfillment of that transformation where she would use the powers bestowed to her as Queen of the seas, and prepare herself for battle. This is the original idea I had in mind, but chose a more "pretty" approach the first time around. Hopefully this image will help answer a few questions, such as "Why is she taking off her bra?" "Would she really go into battle naked?" and my favorite "What's with barnacles"... though I'd image that some of those questions will more than likely have no real answer other than, "Why not?"


In addition, with this image I'd like to thank all of you who have supported me with this silly little idea, through it you've blessed me with more than 50,000 views, a DD and a whole lot of appreciated encouragement. I love you for it. This is my first of many thank yous! I hope you find it acceptable.

Some of you may want to know what happened to her story... well it was lost in the "storm" so I guess I'll just have to write a new one... Anyway, Enjoy.... and yes, there is a hidden mickey in there, and yes I have to update the cheat sheet.

Is a nonsense!!!! ... luckily I could see your beautiful Ariel.
AND DO NOT I FIND FOR NOTHING OFFENSIVE ..
Whereas other disney princesses I've seen in galleries deviantart are much more provocative and naked ..
What a shame!
Is a wonderful Ariel..
(And it is a real shame that the link from Zazzle does not allow you to see the design well.)
And I did not think that deviantart was a platform so bigoted ... taking into account that a lot of art sexy is published daily .. I think it was sufficient put a simple filter for adults .. not censor your work.Hold on!

I don't see that I've told you this already but anytime you post art that's based on an existing character that has been portrayed as being underage for most of their existence(not entirely sure of the full extent)will be treated as a depiction of an underage character in any shape/form or fashion; which means even if you should "age" the character's depiction to successfully appear to be in their 20's or older, they'll still be seen as a minor because of their portrayal in their original media!

That's what I hear. But I think that that particular piece hardly qualified as anything lewd. But it's in the past, and deviantART casting their opinion. I love the site, and I will not bite any more from the hand that feeds.

That first picture getting banned was a blessing in disguise. It gave you an oppurtunity to draw a (in my opinion) much better version of Ariel. I'm not saying the first one should've gotten banned (I couldn't find anything that I haven't seen a million times on here). Very beautiful artwork. Absolutley love it.

Too bad about the original work getting deleted...she certainly looked well old enough but then...:shrug: the DA staff should read the original story...before Disney got hold of it...that mermaid wasn't so nice :no: I can only think of one Disney heroine that was 18 & that's Nani from "Lilo & Stitch"...Tinkerbell doesn't count, either IMO...she's ageless ;)

i have but I haven't taken the time to write it. Essentially though, her father dies and she becomes queen of the sea,granting her new abilities, including control over the powerful Trident, and the ability to change back and forth between Mermaid and Human at her will. Her sisters are jealous so in addition to Ariel constantly fighting against other threats to her kingdom, she has to deal with her sisters acting out against her and her family, all while maintaining a relationship with Eric, and dealing with a rebellious Melody. (Who is now in her teens, making unhealthy comparisons to Ariel's relationship with her own parents.)
