Wanted to try my hand at a slightly more realistic painting. And with all the Disney paintings popping up on dA, I thought, why not?

I wanted to go outside of my comfort zone. Someone with a different shaped face and features and with a different skin tone. It was great practice.

I love Disney's Pocahontas movie. Pocahontas and Ariel were my inspirations to draw the crazy hair that I'm known for in my artwork. And this scene in the movie (it's also the cover to the soundtrack - which I listed to pretty much the whole time painting this) is one of my favorites.

Done in a few hours total.

Done with 1 brush for the background and mist and 1 brush for the rest.

oooooo, looks nice! I think it might help if you add a bit of saturation in the areas where light transitions into shadow.
