There is no originality behind this project, I just loved the original painting and wanted to get my hands dirty. This is a painting I tried to recreate that I found here- https://www.pinterest.com/pin/297589487848051876/; but I'm not sure who made it.
It covers the original story of the little mermaid, in which the Sea Witch tells the mermaid she must kill this human being in order to become human. However, since she is in love with him she decides to take her own life instead. Such beautiful work and an incredibly strong composition. Love it!
