It's beautiful ! I love the hair !
The only thing maybe I would advice you is to add more shadows to the background (the flower behind her), because it is a bit bright. Otherwise it's a great drawing !

i can tell you tried on the hair. merida's hair is wonderful, but definitely a pain to draw. Lovely work. I like the pose and her face--she looks more mature in your style.

Great job on painting Merida. The background could use a little bit of smoothing to remove the jagged edges though

Merida's hair is really difficult to draw, makes me crazy too.

You did a good job on this pose. It's always difficult to draw curled bodies. You also did a good job on the hands, which are notoriously difficult. The hair is good but the hairs need more movement.

ellou! very nice soft shading~ the hair look good! my suggestion is to possibly vary the pattern of hair. the curly repetition is good, but it could be better if there were different variations of the pattern, if you get what i mean? Nonetheless, it's beautiful work with a pleasantly simple background :heart:
