What Would I Give by Grodansnagel What Would I Give by Grodansnagel
TRAGIC TALES

So this is a remake of the first picture i ever drew with a tablet: :thumb197878687:

This is based on a deleted scene from The Little Mermaid, where the evil Queen throws Ariel at a rock and kills her (of I rememeber correctly), Triton, however, revives her. But in this picture there is no happy ending.

I'm a sucker for damsels and distress and tragic stories, I've been contemplating on making some more of these. Like Sleeping Beauty never waking up, and instead of Eugene dying, have Rapunzel die in the arms of Eugene (so macabre). hehe

Her neck is supposed to have an odd angle for quite upsetting reasons (its broken), but nonetheless I hope you like the picture. :)

That is really tragic! :(

I plan on doing my version where they both died.

I recall that in the original story she died by dissolving into sea foam.

Yeah, I tried I also deleted scenes, and initially Arie had to die and then be resurrected, but removed because it could cause some trauma to children. But I think that scene was better -

I'm surprised you didn't base the picture off the original ending; now that's what I call tragic.

Oh, that is dark. And heartbreaking. If I were in charge of the movie, this would be about where the credits roll. Like two minutes of Eric being utterly devastated, smash cut to black screen, first few credits roll in silence, and then this starts playing: [link]

I love this. I wish he had at least tried to save her once in the movie instead of it always being the other way around! I agree I'm a sucker for damsels and tragedy too.

the last time i checked, ariel wanted to become human to win Erics heart. she failed to succeed in the time limit so she belonged to Ursula the sea witch. Triton traded places with her and became this little shriveld thing. Ursula took his trident and tried to kill Eric but hit her eels instead so she, enraged, became huge and tried to kill Ariel but Eric had gotten a ship and stabbed Ursula through the chest, killing her and saving all of her slaves. Then Triton gave his daughter legs to make her happy so she could be with Eric. There was no Evil Queen. Not in this one. The Evil Queen in Snow White tried to kill the seven dwarfs with a rock but it killed her instead.
Despite all that, i really like your picture.

If you have the two set DVD, watch the one of the special features of both. The two DVDs include deleted scenes and concepts, storyboards etc. Check them out, you'll see it.
