Practically obsessed with the cool racebending art here on tumblr, so I decided to make a Black Jamaican version of Ariel … I always imagined the film took place in the Caribbean when I was a kid - in part due to Sebastian’s bad Jamaican accent and growing up with Jamaican mermaid tales… Perhaps one day Disney will have a film starring a Caribbean lead, ‘til then… Ariel gone Caribbean to blow-wow
I was browsing through racebentdisey’s blog and was inspired to draw hispanic Ariel about to get in some not yet decided trouble. I haven’t drawn anything in a while so excuse the less than stellar quality of it. I also didn’t have any colored pencils so her color had to be substituted by shading.
i promised sofiyah some disney a while ago and recently i’ve also had this pressing urge to draw some mermaids of color so here is a racebent ariel!!!
Inspired by a couple of sketches I saw here on tumblr, I created a racebent Ariel.
Have a racebent! Ariel. I think she’d be quite miffed at how Disney made her up.
…so I ended up getting just super lazy/messy with it. and it came out bleh, lol.
