Drowning Dreams by Junedays Drowning Dreams by Junedays
Drowning Dreams

“I will prepare a draught for you, with which you must swim to land tomorrow before sunrise, and sit down on the shore and drink it. Your tail will then disappear, and shrink up into what mankind calls legs, and you will feel great pain, as if a sword were passing through you. But all who see you will say that you are the prettiest little human being they ever saw. You will still have the same floating gracefulness of movement, and no dancer will ever tread so lightly; but at every step you take it will feel as if you were treading upon sharp knives, and that the blood must flow.”

-The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Anderson

Edit: Woah woah woah!!!

This is TRULY one of my favorites. Very skillful, unfamiliar, and inspiring. This definitely echoes the mood of the original tale.

Really like the smoke effects going on here! A little dark and creepy, yet beautiful. I'm not sure If the mermaid is dancing or falling which is also a little strange (in a good way). Thanks for the share!

If they ever redo the Little Mermaid, I hope that it could be even half your awesomeness. (It's 2:40 A.M. that comment is some of the highest I can give, even if it's somewhat incomprihensible)

I don't know. Now you've given me ideas--steampunk little mermaid, perhaps? :D

This is too good to be drawn by human hands. I'm suspecting a conspiracy is in play here.
