Vanessa by KerryDale Vanessa by KerryDale
I'm SO proud of this one.

For all of you who don't know this, I LOVE the Little Mermaid. Vanessa was always one of my favorite vilainesses, and I have no idea why I haven't drawn her before!

The awesome part of this is I used NO reference (aside from a mirror) to draw this! (Aside from a quick glance for her clothes) Woot woot!

This was drawn as a "THANK YOU!" for 20,000 pageviews!!

You all rock!

I'll post the simple lineart in a sec. :)

Vanessa/Ursula (C)Disney

aasdfjlkjadfkj VANESSA. I loved her so much when I was little that I named my imaginary friend after her. And I absolutely love the details in this piece - the mirror reflection, the fingernails, the shell...AAH SO GOOD.

Thanks!

I wanted to have Ursula in here somewhere, and so I decided to mimic the movie :D
Backwards Ursula was harder to draw than I thought!

I know! (Note the new icon, haha)
It took a while, cause I used a mirror to get the right picture. I think it turned out pretty good!

I wanted her to look myscheviously evil. :D indeed!
