"Look at this stuff, isn’t it neat? Wouldn't you think my collections complete? Wouldn't you think I'm the girl, the girl who has everything? Look at this trove treasures untold, how many wonders can one cavern hold? Looking' around here you'd think (sure) she's got everything". And I'm sure you guys had enough of that song from the epic Disney movie 'The Little Mermaid'. I honestly can still remember when I first watched this movie. I was so excited to see all the sea life in cartoon form. At one time I was so into mermaids so watching such a colorful movie really brought out the creativity in me as a kid when I would try to recreate my version of Ariel. I admit my attempt was pretty bad, but that doesn't mean yours has to be. I wanted to make a lesson on "how to draw Ariel easy" for those of you that just love her character design as well as the movie. Since this film brings me back to my childhood, I wanted to do a digital sketch of Ariel to make it that much more personal.

I had a lot of fun with this digital sketch, and I know you will too if you are a fan of The Little Mermaid. I did have to go back and fix Ariel’s nose in the sketch because it was a little too fat for her face. Well, that’s it folks, enjoy this lesson and be sure to stick around for more drawing fun!
