Hardcore Little Mermaid by MikeyDuub Hardcore Little Mermaid by MikeyDuub
** I'm new to using Deviantart (created an account a few years ago, but didn't use it until a few weeks ago). I didn't know what a DD was until this morning, so please stop leaving purely negative comments and lashing out at me. I just do stickers for fun and friends and I am not a professional artist (yet). Thank you to all the positive and encouraging people! **

Hardcore Ariel. October 22, 2012.

by Michael Whisman

Most of my stickers are approximately 3.25" x 2.25"

Inspired by: [link] and [link]

It almost looks as if it were spray painted, or maybe even like a tattoo. I like it! C:

Traced ... badly.
The hands are too small, the head is asymmetrical, the eyes are not even, and that border (?) is just sloppy and not pleasing to look at.
Seriously, not DD worthy.

This was not traced. It was hand drawn, inked, and colored on a sticker.

Also, I am fully aware of the anatomical mistakes. Others have more constructively and positively pointed out these flaws.

I've also been made aware that if you have a problem with a DD, you can contact the person that chose it. I had nothing to do with that and it is against community guidelines to comment on a DD saying how it is "not DD worthy".

Thank you for the comment, have a nice day, and find something better to do with your time.

I'm not all that much of a Disney fan, but i totally dig your art style. :)


And to the negative people...shame on you! If you disapprove of a DD, complain to the one who featured the piece, not the artist, don't be rude!

In the thumbnail, the diamond on her hand kind of looked like the Deathly Hallows symbol, and I almost flipped my shit. Anyway, this is great, and I really like how she looks almost natural in this, like she should be swimming around the sea with tattoos and facial piercings. Beautiful work.

this work is great! I love it in fact I was tempted to go through and reply to the idiots who are being so negative about it... but then I realized one positive comment to you is heaps better than negative comments to them ^_^ though you should work on hands a bit... but I could say the same for many people including myself ^^

Meh, ignore all the negative comments. I can't figure it out, but it seems many people have to take it as a personal insult when someone else achieves something they don't. Well I say, congrats on the DD!!!

From most of the negative comments I've received, it seems most of them are upset they didn't get featured or that my art isn't "worthy".

But anyways, thank you very much! :D

You are welcome! It seems I have started an argument. I will just add that everyone is entitled to their opinion. People should realize that DD isn't an award, it's a feature like you said. It simply means that somewhere, someone enjoyed your art and thought that it deserved a chance to be discovered by many other who may enjoy it.

Ah, I'm trying to keep up with all the comments.

I gather that the point of a DD is to expose artists, not reward them for being Exceptional Professionals. Everyone deserves a fair chance, which is probably why artists don't have a say in whether they get picked or not.

At the end of the day, art is subjective and people are going to think whatever they think about. Thank you for being one of the positive people. :)

Unskilled? Not every piece of art or art category on this site is about technical skill. If you study art over the years, there are a lot of times where technical skill does not play any factor in 'great' art. A lot of illustrators seem offended by this piece getting a DD because they think they can draw better, and perhaps they can, but that doesn't always matter. Those people are just ignorant to the intentions of this piece, how DDs are selected, and art in general.

Oh I agree, not all great art is good just because of technical skill. Sometimes it's the uniqueness of the art, with the subject or colors etc! Too bad this piece lacks both technical and originality, in my opinion!

I smiled at this. Sure, there's room for improvement in most people's work, but just because those mistakes jump out at you doesn't mean there's no skill to be found. It kills the spirit of art when snobs come in and act like it has to have a formula. Giving tips to help people improve is wonderful, but the spirit of making and enjoying art isn't entirely in skill. Keep in mind, this fellow didn't ASK for a DD. They probably do art because they enjoy it, so your trollish opinion isn't necessary.

I'm not an art snob, and I'm not trolling. I'm just a bit blunt with my opinions. This guy has a long way to go in terms of technical skill. What does the artist asking or not asking for a DD have to do with anything in this conversation?

It's not wrong of you to share your opinion... and if someone is being a glory hound and their work was really not trying hard enough, you bet a little negative feedback would be necessary to give them a more realistic understanding of their skills so they work harder to improve. But if someone is keeping to themselves and just doing it for fun, then I don't think they need to have the wind sucked out of their sails. I'm sure you are a very nice person, with a well-trained eye and spoke your mind with good intentions. I hope you don't take me saying what it looked like as an attack on your character.
