My Little Mermaid! by tashiepie My Little Mermaid! by tashiepie
My very first vector! Be gentle, I know I messed a lot of stuff up and it's not as smooth as it could be in some areas. XD

I'd always known that Tara has voiced Melody from The Little Mermaid II, which had always been one of my favorite Disney sequels as well.

However, the idea for this didn't spring into my mind until I heard the 40-minute long interview that EQD shared with Tara. She'd been talking about her role in The Little Mermaid, but instead of saying The Little Mermaid, she said My Little Mermaid. Anyway, I thought it would be awesome to draw Melody as a pony.

So I sketched out the outline, scanned it to my computer, and decided to try my hand at my very first vector! For those who don't know Melody, or haven't seen TLMII, she's Ariel's daughter, who's dreamed of living in the sea. Like Ariel, she shares her skill for singing. The locket around her neck was given to her as a baby, which projects a holographic image of Atlantica and plays a lullaby when opened. I decided on her Cutie Mark being 3 musical notes/sea shells because she loves the sea, but her real talent is singing. That's how I see it anyway.

So, there ya go! My Little Mermaid! I'm sure some pony's already done it, as this vector took painstakingly long, but figured I'd post it up anyway!

I don't like The Little Mermaid II. When I say I don't like it, that doesn't mean I don't like Melody herself, but I do think that the movie was a near complete retread of the original.

Everyone has their own opinions :) I'm not saying it was as good as the original, but its one of the few good/decent sequels I've seen.

Shouldn't her Cutie Mark be a fin or something else ocean themed?

Well, they're sea-shells, but also music notes because she's a very talented singer like her mother.

I always thought it was very dark brown, a combination of Eric and Ariel.

Ariel is a red head. Red and Black make Crimson,if you thought that was the case.

I didn't mean if you literally mix the colors. I simply meant a median - something between the two. By technical standards, if someone with black hair had a child, the child would almost always have black hair, because unless it's a light black, it won't technically "mix" with anything very well.

Besides, it's a cartoon, and I was drawing from memory. XD

Hehehe alrighty! I'll convert Ariel and all of her sisters, as well. Possibly Flounder and Sebastian.

Also, I plan on drawing the mane six as seaponies. :D

Well yeah, but it was definitely among the better of the sequels. TLKII is my all-time favorite sequel, but TLMII is up there with it. The others are just bleeeeeeeh.

well, given Disney sequels 'better' is a bit strong of a term. Besides, if we're going to debate this, then the Aladdin sequels are much more superior, even though there isn't much competition. Cinderella 3 is also pretty good, once you get past how rushed the first 10-20 minutes feels and the Barbielike opening scene.

I didn't really plan on debating. XD I was just stating my own opinions, really. I have to admit, Return of Jafar and King of Thieves were really good, but I never said they weren't. Just saying that TLK and TLM are on the top of my list. :)
