It helped alot that it was raining outside when I painted this...

Thank you everyone who helped me with it, I appreciate it <3

When I watched the trailer my favourite part is when she takes off her hood and POOF, there it was--the new Pixar trademark...

I love the way they design characters....

As you might see in the process video it started off looking like the Pixar design,but then it gradually changed it to something less artificial...sort of

Okay lets start this critique with me saying how beautiful and well done I think this piece is. Its absolutely stunning very subtle yet dynamic use of colors. Very good choice of shading and attention to detail to the pink, soft, and smooth lip to the flowing fiery red hair everything help bring out the realistic qualities in the picture. The eyes were especially a treat the dept and brightness of the blue really set a wonderful contrast to the red hair without clashing with the rest of the piece. The only flaw I see is that rain could have been more fluid and realistic to really bring the picture home. All in all wonderful piece and one my favorite

I'm simply in admiration to your work...
The face of Merida against the storm and her blue eyes...She's hope and want to fight...It's the Merida in my heart and the expression of her the closest for me! She's not a little girl anymore she wants to see and live. You drawing give me this impression...

A very beautiful masterpiece and I have nothing to say just enjoy you great work!

Goods points: The hair(you put many nuances), the eyes the choose of the background color. the realistic of the character, the textures and the face...

Less points: the rain.

Well done and thanks for this beautiful art
