Ahh... the original ending. I love it when people remember the original story (not just the Disney version). I love the detail on her dress and cap, and the way her hair merges with the waves.

Yes, endings that end in despair and some hope. Disney's ending was so happy, it was fine, a children movie in the end but the tale is more interesting.

Thank you!

The colours you chose are always in a total harmony and create something so special with a mix between an old feeling (like a painted memory) and a special atmosphere. And your way to paint the hair with a so aerial movement (perfect with the theme by the way, with hair like waves or wind) is really wonderful to see. The face you've made are also really pretty with a soft and sweet expression (mixed with these softy colours, it's just perfect). The little blush on the cheeks give a feeling of something alive. Really breathaking :clap:

When I first knew that she died, I was surprised. When I read it or watch the movies when they respect this ending, it makes me sad. Thank you!
