This is like Ursula back when she was a bitchin' babe. Lucky for Ariel and Triton she retired! I used your image on my tumblr (see my profile for details) and I hope you dont mind. If you do, please let me know how I can fix it!
well the one in the lil mermaid, though 'fugly' as many people are labeling it, seems pretty accurate to octopus in general to me. They are chunky squishy lookin' sea critters, all wobbly and bubble headed an what not xD
this is still a good depiction, don't get me wrong, but I don't think of octo-maids (w/e they're officially called) as being gorgeous women, I think secluded less attractive. Which would explain why the octopus was the creature used in the various translations of the stories as to being the 'sea witch' cause of that seclusion lol
but that's splitting hairs haha
it's wonderful work and the coloring and line work are great
