Fan art - Merida


I'd been seeing a lot of online artists creating their version of fan art whether from Pokemon, Disney or other game/movie/book. I'm not sure why I didn't choose Chewbacca or Batman to draw as they're a couple of my favourite characters. But I looked at the Disney females and thought of Merida. She's feisty and natural (until later versions which have 'beautified' her). For this fan art I envisaged her as more of a Dungeons and Dragons warrior.



Sycra's Anatomy model came in handy when drawing the character. Check out earlier blog post on drawing anatomy HERE


Had a look at my marker stock in the colours I would need and realised that this piece might be more multi-medium as the colour ranges in each type of marker need to be replenished. 



I'm happy enough with this first attempt at fan art. There are a few parts of the piece I'd like to change - her left arm is a little butch and I think the angle of the bowstring isn't accurate. I might try another character - Mulan - now she also was a strong female!
