Brave: Mother and Daughter by Risachantag Brave: Mother and Daughter by Risachantag
I've been meaning to do some Brave fanart for a while, and as I was making some simple Celtic jewellery the other day, I was in the mood for some Celtic inspired art!

I just loved painting Merida's crazy hair! By the way, the symbol in the corners symbolises 'mother and child', so it seemed appropriate.

Photoshop CS5, Wacom Intuos tablet, 6 hours

Really liking the tidiness of all this.
Shapes are all coming out perfectly straight and strong.
very well balanced!
only the blue flame on the top kinda bugs me though. :ahoy:

I saw that movie. It was an okay movie. Her mother turning into a bear was a twist I didn't see coming.

I just love the relationship Merida has with her mother in the movie; even if she did turn her into a bear. ;p
This is just stunning! :D

Awesome picture. I really like the colors. :)

The archery nerd in me keeps fixating on the position of her hands and bows, mostly because she's a righty, not a lefty, and the arrow is on the wrong side of the bow for drawing left-handed, but those are the only flaws I can see, and they really don't take away from the picture. I'll tell my inner archery nerd to shut up, because the overall piece is great.

Beautiful picture! I love the pose you have Merida in, it's just fantastic!

I love Brave so much, it's a wonderful take on fairy tales, and it' great that the love story in it was between Mother and Daughter =)

Beautiful work! Best movie of the year, if you ask me (and that includes The Hobbit). We've already bought the DVD/Blu-Ray set with all the extras (which are actually really funny).
