Dev-title yoinked from the first line of a Carl Sandburg poem. Carl Sandburg is awesome.

And so is Mulan. I always loved the thought of a Disney princess that didn't spend the entire movie running around in a dress and being clumsy and having the hero come save her - instead, she picks up a sword and kicks Mongol ass. And anyone who can kick Shan-Yu in the face and get away with it deserves fanart.

Drew this because someone mentioned that it seems to be a dA-trend to draw Disney princesses. I usually resent jumping on the bandwagon, but what the heck.

Thank you. :D It's always fun to translate someone else's characters into your own style, and I love Mulan like crazy, so this was double-fun.

Hahaha - på Fire Unto Fire började du sjunga "Arabiska naaaaaatt!" och nu är det Mulan-soundtracket. Om jag fortsätter i den här stilen kommer du snart a sjungit dig igenom hela Disney-katalogen. :D

Thank you. :D There's something irresistably awesome about a woman so badass that she not only almost gets away with dressing up as a man - she also kicks Mongol warlords in the face and gets the Emperor of China to bow to her.

Hahahaha - tack! :D Jag tyckte om att rita hennes kläder. Rustningar och uniformer är alltid roliga.
