Modig by spocha Modig by spocha
Rare piece of fanart from 2012. Just wanted to do the composition with the bear looming in the dark (is it Mother Bear or Mean Bear? Heck do I know, it was not like I had seen the film by the time I whipped this up! Lalala...)
Watercolors on cotton paper. Characters belong to Pixar.

Great work! This is one of my favorite movies of all time, and not just because I have Scottish relatives! ^_~

I am Scottish and from a scottish family, currently staying in my Scottish boyfriend's flat situated in Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, and I love this film even though they got her accent 320% wrong if she's meant to be from the highlands... Soo, I guess I 1 upped you there. ;)

Oh god, they had such a great opportunity to make Disney Princesses with Scandinavian accents, but they still went for American.
Liiiittle bit disappointing there.

The scandinavian watchers would have been way too embarrassed. =P
(I can't speak for Norway, where the film is actually set, but a Swedish English accent is wildly regarded as the polar opposite of sexy and cool).

They still managed to screw Brave up. Most of the characters have Glaswegian accents, such as Merida and her Dad, but they're from the highlands.
So close, Disney. So close. :D

Not sure if that is mother bear or a contemplating bear.... (It doesn't really look that mean to me..kind of...in thought.) Anyway, the hair is always a mess usually to do and you accomplished it wonderfully. I love the clothing, overall design, and pose with the bow. The trees have a wood feel which makes them pop, much like the red used in here hair. Your choice of color and the values you used compiment each other very well, and the darks aren't clashing with the light like in some things I see. The bears paws is one of the things that does clash with the trees a little bit, not to mention around Merida's stomach line, it's fade fights with the belt line.

P.S. I would love to see a book that you illustrate, your work is amazing. Just wanted to try to be a little constructive and not give lip service.

Wow, thank you! I don't often get very feedbacky comments so I appreciate this a lot!
I have illustrated a variety of books and stories actually, but nothing in English yet, unfortunately. If you're curious, samples of my commission work can be viewed on my website. :)

I don't see why, but then again, there are tons of artists that just don't get the feedback the art deserves. I'll check it out.

I've always wanted to see the movie! Luckliy, though, I knew about the bear beforehand, so there are no spoilers here for me. :D But, to the art: I love Merida's face and the size of the bear as well as the atmosphere andf the dark colors really~ add to the suspense of what's going on or what's to come! :D Fan-freakin'-tastic~ :icondancingrussiaplz:

Whoa! This looks absolutely amazing! I love the nice blend of dark shades against her fiery-red hair.
To be honest, I watched this movie again yesterday.
