Merida by Arbetta Merida by Arbetta
I did this today because I've seen (badly, but seen) the teaser trailer of BRRRRAAAAAVE!!! :la:

That was some epic stuff, man! EPIC!

I hope you like my humble try at portraying more faithfully Princess Merida. I thought she was going to be older, but other than that I love her design :aww: Behiiiiiind you, my dear :D

You can see the steps I followed in my new tumblr account: [link]

I just wanted to add that I feel honoured that some people use my Brave fanart in their blogs/twitter counts/forums, etc. Really, I'm so glad! (and surprised) You can use my fanart, the idea and everything belongs to Pixar. But it'll be even better if sometimes you can say it's mine, or simply that you got it from DeviantArt, that'll be great. Thank you :meow:

This is the kind of art I think they should use if they made another version of Artemis Fowl into a comic book!

Aparte de que sienta debilidad por lo pelirrojos/as, el dibujo es precioso, me gusta la pose tan decidida del personaje.

I have seen your twitter, it's amazing! I already follow you :aww: You can do as you want with this fanart, the ones I did or whichever fanart I draw in the future and you don't have ABSOLUTELY to credit me. Do as you want. If you do, I'll be even more glad you use my fanart. If you don't, it doesn't matter because I feel that, when you draw a fanart of something, it's not completely yours :aww:

Anyways, thank you for the comment! :hug: And again, you can do as you want :meow:

I wonder what they are. First I thought they were fairies or something, but they look more like flames.

Arbetta Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I agree with you, I can't imagine what they are, but it sure has to be with some kind of ancient magic or "flames", as you say, of that magic. But maybe they are evil, who knows? hohoho...
