Here's the second work in the series of Disney princesses assembled (see what I did there?) into the Avengers.

It's Fa Mulan!! I did a much better Job of incorperating aspects of the character's costumes and color schemes in this one than I did will Belle, but it still doesn't work like I want it to... An alternate upload may be in order :P

The next princess will be Iron-Man! (POST A COMMENT IF YOU CAN GUESS WHICH PRINCESS IT WILL BE).

But even though this whole idea started as a shamelessly shallow fun mix up project I gotten really into it and would love to hear if you have suggestions, or you just absolutely hate it...

If you think a princess should be paired with a hero let me know too! I haven't decided who is going to be who just yet!

Many, Many, Many pictures were incorporated into this piece, notably some old mirror's edge conceptual art. If you think your work has been unfairly plagiarized please leave a comment. This work was not created for private profit, it is a parody only. Marvel's the Avengers and Mulan (in her current form) are both property of Disney Corp (It's convenient because I'll only be sued once!) please do not share, recreate, or sell without permission (or steal my dog).

Made even more ironic when you realize that Mulan's actor, Ming-Na Wen, is currently starring in Agents of Shield.

It would make more sense if it was Merida. Great job no less.

Looks like a great Kickstarter project.  Everyone join in to help publish the Graphic Novel.

Even though I think Merida fits better as Hawkeye, this is just simply AMAZING. Well done, you :)

Hello. I'm trying to learn how to bring more realism into my art. I thought since your work looks like it could jump off the page, you could help me. Where did you learn your technique? Are you self taught? I don't care how long the process towards great art like yours is, I just want to know that I can improve, I don't want my art to be as good as yours, that isn't what I expect. I just want to improve.

Of course! I'd totally be willing to give you some pointers, is there something specific you'd like to know?
Anyway, to answer your questions...
I'm completely self taught, the last formal art class I had was in Middle School. I learn a lot of my techniques by pursuing other artists and spending time watching them work. Just like you are doing now :D

The internet has made it easier than ever to reach out and connect with those who are worth emulating. There are also a great deal of exciting tutorials out there, many of which are available for free. If you want to improve do your best to look through and collect art that you like on the web, if you see a technique that you like ASK! :) Most artists are willing to share their secrets if asked.

You have no idea how happy I am to hear back! I didn't expect you to respond.
Anyway, I've been trying to make more dynamic figure poses, but I can't seem to make any look realistic. They all just look like robots. I'm also having a big trouble with shading. I'm trying to do my art in pencil but I'm trying to get a hold of PaintShop Pro from a friend. Any tips?
It makes me feel nice that there are still people like you willing to share your knowledge. Thank You!

All I can really say is practice, practice, practice.
Draw from life, trace, doodle, sketch, take on projects, anything you can.
:) When it comes to realism just try to keep in mind the spacing of features and shading. The human body is tough, people follow certain rules proportion and can only move in ways restricted by its form. Muscle and bone only let a person distort their posture so much, but then again people are almost never perfectly rigid and stiff. If your drawing doesn't follow the relatively rigid rules of physiology then your people will look like stiff robots. Studying the biology of people can really help, all you need to do is observe form and keep in mind the major muscles in the arms, legs, and chest.

When shading keep a specific light source in mind and shade consistently across all surfaces.
When doing colored pictures remember that shadows aren't black or grey, but instead they are a darker version of the color the object is.
The shadows on a face are just darker fleshtone than the highlights. Not black and white.
:P

You know, I really wish I could use this as my background on my laptop.
I'm a huge Marvel girl and Hawkeye just happens to be my favorite Avenger. Then Mulan is my favorite princess so this is just the best of both worlds. This piece is absolutely breathtaking. I love it so much.

Looks a little bit like you might've pulled directly from some Mirror's Edge artwork. Not accusing or anything, just forewarning you of criticism that might come your way :)

This is just a copy of the Mirror's Edge artwork with different clothes. Actually looks like you just took the left hand and just cut and pasted here. [link]

I mention in the description that the mirror's edge work is heavily integrated into the piece. I didn't however, put the link in the description.
