life is de bubbles by bettylane life is de bubbles by bettylane
under the sea,
under the sea
nobody beats us,
fry us & eat us
in fricasee

we what the land
folks love to cook,
under the sea
we off the hook
we got no troubles,
life is the bubbles!

under the sea,
under the sea
since life is sweet here
we got the beat
here, naturally-heh-heh

even the
sturgeon & the ray,
they get the urge
& start to play
we've got the spirit,
you've got to hear it,
under the sea


:fish: :earth: :siamese:


yeah, I finally redid it! I'm so much happier with this version. & yes I am thoroughly abusing the rainbow gradient tool in photoshop, what?

done with Copics, Prismacolor colored pencils, misc. markers & lots of PSCS6

Beautiful.
I think it belongs in an Art show.
It would look perfect in a frame :)
I love your art and this one shows that spark I love to see.
Keep up the amazing work :)

Loving the Red and Green colors in this, how the flesh pops off the background. Though the hair is probably my favorite part, I've been in a real red heads kick lately and this is only helping fuel it.

I love the little mermaid and i think you have interpreted her very well and made her different. Your seahorses are adorable also (:

The Disney one always looked like a grinning empty head git who grins at the drop of a hat.

Yours looks like she is about to do a samba dance and forget about sprouting some stupid legs.

She would indeed deserve the musical talents of Sebastian and his band.

heh, thank you. to be fair, I have always loved the disney Ariel so I wouldn't agree with your opinion about her. but I had read the hans christian version well before the film came out, so that is definitely an influence here too. :)
