Disney Fighter - Ariel by joshwmc Disney Fighter - Ariel by joshwmc
Next in my Disney Fighter series - Ariel. This went through a couple of variations before I finally settled for a sort of coral armour look. Her altered back story is now that Ariel sold her voice to the sea witch to become a fierce human warrior in order to participate in a global fighting tournament. Took about 9 hours on this one, done in Painter and a little bit of Photoshop.

This is making me wonder who would win in a battle? Ariel or Aquaman?

Ha ha. Aquaman can summon Cthulhu, owns 70% of the planet, and has super strength. The whole notion of Aquaman sucking comes from the Superfriends. He shows us why he's King of the Seas in Justice League and Batman: Brave and the Bold.

Nice touch with the fish-hook earring. And thumbs WAY up for such a cool crossover. It's a little refreshing to see a more agressive take on characters that are normally sweetness and light. Not that I mind that, I'm a huge Disney fan. It's just a very interesting change of pace, you know? :D

Some how I don't see a trident a times being a good weapon of choice unless it has magical qualities to it.

Interesting, and I do like the coral armour it's pretty cool.
Still think you should do Mulan and Kida from Atlantis, but Aurora from "Sleeping Beauty" as well

wonderful design, you did an awesome job on this picture!

its very creative and im sure if Disney/SE saw this, they may want to use the design for a future Kingdom Hearts
(WOULD BE EPIC!)

On a side note:

being a long time Ariel fan, since the age of 5 really, i have to tell you that you got her eye color wrong.

her eyes arnt green, they are blue, as the ocean.

you dont have to correct it or anything, just felt i should tell you.

:iconjoshwmc:
joshwmc Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2011
Regarding the eye colour, all the references for the character I searched for on google had eyes that ranged from blue to deep green, there didn't seem to be a uniformed colour. Not knowing what was correct I simple made a judgment call based on the other colours the character had, most notable the green tail. But thanks for the note anyway.

Looks like Ariel's about to make that trident part of SOMEONE'S world...in a very bad way. Love the creative twist with that coral armor, like you said. It was a good choice.

some sugestions for disney fighter-
belle-not a fighter,but a stratagist..she leads others to the fight.the mirror is her way of seeing the future,and distant areas.he father,the inventor,creates new,even wierd weapons and defensesbelle'd bodyguard is beast,who is still a minotaur at this time.
esmerelda-alli of belle,and 18th century version of batgirl. mauice has invented for her a belt festooned with mini grenades,and a tamborine with stiffened frame,and sharpened cymbals.
nani/lilo-'uncle' jumba has mutated them,giving them the same looks as before,but the powers of 20 experiments, including being able to lift 5000 times there own weight.
pocahontas-power to tap into animal spirits,taking on their abilities(swiftness of deer,strength of bear,flight of eagle,etc)
jane porter-she has eventually adapted to jungle life.she has become stronger then the normal upper class Englishwoman( then again,who isn't?),she has learned several animal languages,and has gotten the hang of vine swinging and spear throwing.
mulan-enough said .she kicks ass already!
