This took waaay longer than expected. But as I always say to myself, better late than never. So here is Mulan! She is one of my faaavorite Disney characters of all time so it was such fun doing this piece. I added in as many details related to the movie as I could. A choice which kind of sent me on a roller coaster of "why did I do this to myself" and "I love these details, they make the piece". But seriously, can you guys see the references? I really, really hope so.
Well, let me tell you a lil' bit about the piece. At first I wasn't going to give her a hat cause I had alrady done that before. But I wanted to incorporate the blossoms so badly, so the hat became a thing. Maybe I'll do a design with no hat someday, maybe not.
Hopefully no one is disappointed that Mushu isn't up and about yet in this piece. I don't know, I thought maybe Mulan could be the one to bring him to life with a spell, or something. He would make a great familiar.
As for the spell she's reading, I'm pretty sure she won't add Cri-Kee in there. Right? Right.
I really, really want to talk about all the things that are in this picture, all the little easter eggs. But I don't think people want to read a novel length description so I'll just let you all figure what things from the movie are in the piece. Oh, one thing I will point out, since you can't really see it, is that on her wrist it says "Potion Dosage: Three cups in the morning, Three at night ". If you know the script as well as I do, you definitely get that reference.
I'm geeking out over here!
Anyway, I hope you guys like this piece even though it's no longer Halloween season.
Happy belated Halloween, everybody!
Wishing you all the best! www.deviantart.com/users/outgo… www.deviantart.com/users/outgo…
