Your line work is lovely! It's like looking at a page from an old fairy tale book.

Lovely. I like the sense of motion - all the swirling details. Is this Hans Christian Andersen's Little Mermaid?

Yup it is :) It was one of my fairy tale books to read when I was young.

is this  THE  little mermaid 
the  one that turned in to foam and whose soul  became an air spirit   or  the disney  one  ?

im hoping the original  little mermaid  it looks  great but it would be great if  for once it isnt ariel

Yup this is the one that turned into foam. I love the original story a lot though it's sad.

at least it has a dark edge  to it
unlike most  disney versions  and thats a shame because  disney originally had a razors  edge on it 
scenes in snow white and dumbo  were terrifying 
and fantasia  was  amazing nowadays they play it safe 

anyway have you ever tried to  draw a  betta mermaid  ?

If this is the little mermaid from the fairy tale I love that she has a young face because it depicts very well that she was only 16 years old in her story. I've never like that Disney makes all their princesses look like adults when they're supposed to be "teenagers". It's so hypocritical.

You should add some color because it's a little hard tell what is what.

Isn't the tail (fin) a little too big for her small body?

ahahha I was thinking of adding colors using watercolor but I'm not very good at it yet so I'm practicing more first.
I guess I hadn't realized how big her tail or fins were until I finished it. >.<
