Medieval Meridas by Arbetta Medieval Meridas by Arbetta
I made this after receiving my AWESOME The Art of Brave book :la: Some of the art involving the character's designs was in a elegant-yet-cartoony style, which I absolutely loved (like this: [link])

I still like the final design for princess Merida, I just wanted to try different dresses on her, some of them really strange :aww: I have a thing for concept art, yep :nod:

Hope you like it :meow:

Nice! I could see if the setting was definitely in the 1200s her having to wear something like these, especially if she was supposed to be at a dinner with some important people(ie: other kings and queens)

THERE'S AN ART OF BRAVE BOOK? WHY DID NOBODY TELL ME?

Right. I want (need xD) it.
Also, awesome art! Very awesome! I love it. Well, I love basically anything of Merida, but this stuff is really cool! Your concept art is amazing ;D

One of the things that drives me nuts about Disney girls is that for the sake of animation their clothes are oversimplified. Merida's dress only got the right treatment in the cast-member costume worn in the Disney parks. In the films themselves they were rather plan to the point of not being from any particular time. I really like your design alternatives, although I'm not a fan of the ruffle on the bottom-- to me that speaks more Victorian Gibson girl than medieval castle maiden. I like the top right one the best for her "princess" look. :)

I don't like the shape of Merida's head, not in your art I mean the official Merida. I just.... freaks me out.....

Acabo de buscar imágenes de Brave en Google y joder, creo que se han pasado con el toque caricaturesco e infantil. Pensaba que iba a ser otra cosa.

Me gusta mucho más tu visión del personaje. Supongo que lo del vestido es más que nada para simplificar el proceso de animación, pero molaría que hubieran usado un diseño más parecido a los tuyos. (Como diseño me gusta el primero; como dibujo, el de abajo, en plan pa chula yo).

These are all very impressive to look at, but my favorite dress sketch is the bottom one. Merida looks really elegant in a silvery gown.
