Sunday Sketches: Brave Style (D & J)

We saw Brave on Friday night, and it was good!  Not great, but good.  Regardless, whatever faults I found with this movie (though I did like it), Merida's memorable character and feisty personality definitely added interest and spark to the story, and she naturally found her way onto the pages of my sketchbook the following Sunday.  This is my third or fourth attempt at Merida, but one of very few that I did since seeing the movie, and the first one I've been satisfied with.  Sometimes CG characters can be a little challenging to get just right with hand-drawn materials, but I think I managed to get her attitude and character a little here.
And now I will turn the time over to the Wifels.

So, yes, we saw Brave and I liked it well enough and it was pretty and whatever. Sometimes when we are both drawing I just copy whatever theme Drew is drawing so when he started drawing Merida (again) I decided to give it a whirl myself.  And what do you know, I was happy with how she turned out.

So happy with it, in fact, that I colored it later that night.  Side note: my poor tablet has become quite dusty of late.  It was happy to be used.  Anyway, the colored version also turned out just as I'd hoped.  Win-win-win!
