I’m happy to introduce the most recent free line art for you! Today’s star is Ariel, specifically from the Part of Your World Reprise. Like I mention in the video, I love that song (though to be fair, I love practically every Little Mermaid song). Especially from the Broadway musical.
Anyways…I ended up really happy with this drawing, mostly because of the coloring. While I hope you’ll download this line art and put your own spin on it, here are generally the Copic colors I used:
(Without thinking I started cleaning up my markers before writing down exactly which colors I had out. The ones I’m not sure about have a little ‘?’.)
Hair: R59, R39, R46
Skin: E000, E00, E01
Eyes: B41, B45, B39
Shells: BV04, BV08
Rocks: W3, E18, E99, E39?
Ocean: BG72, BG75, BG78
Clouds: G00, W5, W7, BG72, BG75, B39
To clarify from the video, I used the clouds as a way to tie everything together. As you can see from the list, I used colors from her fin, eyes, and the ocean unify the different elements. Because her hair, shell, and tail colors are solely used on their respective aspects, they stand out against the background.
In hindsight, I would have made Ariel’s pose more dynamic. She’s a little stiff, but I hope you’ll still like her. You can find Ariel and my other free coloring pages here, or on the navigation bar above. If you share on Twitter or Instagram be sure to tag me (@ZeldaCroft). I’d love to see your coloring!
