Disney Heroes: Ariel by AznNerd Disney Heroes: Ariel by AznNerd
Ariel! I liked Ariel for her curiosity and thirst for knowledge. Most def a Ravenclaw. I've never been big on mermaids at all so, there's that. I wanted her to be ferocious though. I'm pretty tired of sissy princesses.

So for her, I decided to give her her father's trident and grant her the power to control weather and sea currents with it, hence the lightning. I ditched the fins for legs (like Ursula). I felt giving her hydrokinesis would have been super stereotypical and pretty lame so affinity for wind and lightning won out. She's like the mermaid version of Storm from the X-Men.

It's the ability to move and manipulate water with your mind.

Nice!!! So I'm guessing she like a female "Aquaman" of the team.

I totally dig the fact that you gave Ariel her father's trident. I also noticed that her outfit and armor are reminiscent of an aquatic environment and sealife. Very smart move.

Wow! Pretty cool, though I never considered Ariel to be sissy, they just like to stuff her in that pink dress that clashes with her red hair! XD

I didn't have time to comment on these pics when they first popped up but now I do.

Ariel was probably my least favorite of the Disney princesses. I mean she trades what makes her unique for a pair of legs and *deleted* For a guy she never met before that day. And in the original grimms tale. It goes very very badly. And in the movie she doesn't learn her lesson, That said I can kinda forgive it if only cause it gave us one of the best Villain songs of all time. "YOU POOR UNFORTANTE SOUL!" Which is just Ursula mocking her threw the entire thing and showing off how manic she can be.

Now THIS version of Ariel I like. She looks tough, confident and capable. And yeah I like that you went with 'storms and wind' instead of the water control much more unique....hey wait a minute. >>

Thanks!

I see her as a Ravenclaw because she's willing to do anything to learn more about things she's passionate about, even if it means making shady deals with a sea witch. She collects things and has a vast knowledge of what (she thinks) they are used for. She may not be bright or correct, but I think the effort she puts into learning more makes her a Ravenclaw. I think Belle, Alice, and Mulan are all Ravenclaws. Though Mulan could easily be a Gryffindor, but her penchant for thinking outside of the box to confront problems (retrieving the arrow at the top of the pole, the avalanche, the plan to rescue to the emperor, etc) instead of charging in headfirst makes her a Ravenclaw.

You're the first to consider what Hogwarts house a Disney Princess would be in, but I really don't see her as a Ravenclaw.
Anyway! Considering how simple and non-threatening Ariel's original design is, you've really turned her into a fearsome warrior! I especially like how you used her original color-palette for her costume.
