I think I know why Triton favors Ariel regardless of the clashes more than she looks like her mother.

Athena was probably bold enough to stand up to Triton during his tempermental moments and was brave enough to question him and ask why there there are certain rules they needed to follow and tell him he is wrong when he is in the wrong.

Ariel does the same thing with Triton, and while Ariel would explore the land and Triton forbids that and they fight Ariel will also tell her father he is wrong unlike her sisters, and while he gets annoyed with it he is probably glad she does that as she reminds him of Athena and stands up for what she believes in while Triton was still scarred from Athena's death and hated humans before Ariel met Eric.

I have:) I always suspected that even Athena would call out Triton like Ariel would.

Young King Triton is sexy! He kinda looks like the Beast when he turns human.

I gotta admit; I usually HATE fanart that's not digital. But you did such a gret job with this that I simply HAVE to love it. Plus, it gave me an idea for another fanfic; young Triton and Athena's relationship. Like, how they met and got married and stuff. So thanks for doing this and giving me an idea!

I think I'm in awe. THEY ARE SO ADORABLE! No really, who knew that Triton was so handsome and romantic? *teehee*

This is beautiful and stunning, especially the light on their fins.

Young Triton is looking good. His and Athena's tails are neat. I really like how you coloured them, tails and bodies.
