BRAVE: Change Your Fate by Absolute-Sero BRAVE: Change Your Fate by Absolute-Sero
Featured is Merida, the heroine of Pixar's upcoming movie "Brave"

edit: Just as a note, the blue 'flames' are really wisps, I know.. but I couldn't really tell what they were from screencaps, and I was afraid to look up anything about the movie at the time due to spoilers (since it hadn't been released yet). OH WELL. :XD:

Now.. all the time you see Merida with her bow. However, a look at the gallery inspired me to draw her with the sword you see her practicing with. The bow is important, sure, but there's much better fanart around with people who can draw bows better than I can. ;] NOTHING with her wielding the sword!

Merida's pose I tried to fix, but I just am not good enough at perspective/foreshortening/whatever it would be called in this situation (XD) to get it. Oops.

The movie's actually not going to be released until tomorrow where I live. I'm going to see it with a bunch of friends.. looking forward to it immensely, so I wanted to celebrate, even if this is more along the lines of a speedpaint than a proper painting <3
Pixar has never failed to disappoint me with their movies. :heart:

Thanks! <3
AHAHAHA.. oh man, the hair only looks passable because this is about 16% of original siz |D Oddly enough, though.. I am much happier doing hair this way than trying to neaten it. Hrr.

Glad you like.. it ended up with more of a movie-poster type feel than I planned, so I kinda ran with it.. o.o

I do that too! Though I do work a bit smaller than you, I still work fairly large! Unfortunately SAI sucks with those big pieces. As you know. T.T;

The pose is awesome!
