Art Nouveau Merida by brusierkee Art Nouveau Merida by brusierkee
More Brave!

I just want to draw Merida all the time, THAT HAIR, THAT BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL HAIR!! Also, I love anything remotely Celtic so ahhh of course I love Brave.

I got a book of Art Nouveau posters at Borders for half off and I just look through them all day. I really loved drawing this and I might try my hand at a few more art nouveau pictures.

EPIC! I really like the details on the hair. And good work on the pose, expression, colouring and the celtic knot in the background.

I highly commend you on attempting and even seemingly liking to draw her hair. You are very successful here! I really like how her hair almost feels like part of the background, too. There is so much beauty in her melancholy expression. The background and hair really highlights that.

Very lovely!

I love her pose and hair! She looks so elegant, but still has Merida's personality in it.

*dies* love this, the gradation and the colour, and the graphic style is just so tragically Celtic that its wonderful.
BungeeArms Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2013
would you mind if i adapted this to be a tattoo?
brusierkee Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2013  Professional Interface Designer
Not at all! I'd love to see the final product
BungeeArms Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2013
It won't be for a little bit. But when I saw this I knew I had to get it. I will definitely show you when I get it. It's going to be my next tattoo. Brave means so much to me. It's such a beautiful story about a mom and daughter and it makes me think of my mom.

beautiful work

She looks exactly like my little girl, well except my little girl is eight. I was really sroked about Merida, she didn't just lie down and wait for her prince or chase after him. Merida is my princess hero. This is the best Merida fan art I have seen!
EvilDead159 Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012

Nice! I love the style. :)
bunnicustard Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Cool! Love the tones, you've got the Mucha look down quite well. Her hair certainly does lend itself to Nouveau doesn't it? The muted palette was nicely chosen too.

Here we are, born to be kings
We're the princes of the universe
Here we belong, fighting to survive
In a world with the darkest powers, heh
And here we are, we're the princes of the universe
Here we belong, fighting for survival
We've come to be the rulers of you all

I am immortal, I have inside me blood of kings - yeah - yeah
I have no rival, no man can be my equal
Take me to the future of you all

Born to be kings, princes of the universe
Fighting and free
Got your world in my hand
I'm here for your love and I'll make my stand
We were born to be princes of the universe

No man could understand
My power is in my own hand
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, people talk about you
People say you've had your day
I'm a man that will go far
Fly the moon and reach for the stars
With my sword and head held high
Got to pass the test first time - yeah
I know that people talk about me - I hear it every day
But I can prove them wrong 'cos I'm right first time
Yeah, yeah, alright, let's go, let's go, ha haa
Yeah, watch this man fly, wooh
Bring on the girls - c'mon - c'mon - c'mon
Here we are - here we are
Born to be kings, we're the princes of the universe
Here we belong
Born to be kings, princes of the universe
Fighting and free, got your world in my hand
I'm here for your love and I'll make my stand
We were born to be princes of the universe of the universe of the universe
of the universe of the universe

Hm. Two things I cant resist. Disney Princesses and Mucha inspired art. Well done.

Just great!This is a very beautiful work!
hollychuberry Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
This is really beautiful, great job. I love the faded muted colors. I think you accomplished capturing Merida in the Nouveau style very well!
KaliannShevlin Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2012
She's so amazing.
Lycasis Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2012  Student General Artist
I love the style. The flow is wonderful. A great use of lines and . . . As much as I love this, and trust me I DO, the fact that her head would have to be nearly twisted off to achieve that angle is making my stomach twist in some pretty equally horrible ways. If her head where turned to the other side it would be perfect! I'm sorry if that comes off rude, but, Good G*d D*mn that angle! *Shutters*

On another note. So can't wait for the movie. And I really wish Disney didn't own Pixar T-T
brusierkee Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2012  Professional Interface Designer
Thanks for the compliments,

and yes I've gotten comments about the anatomy of this piece before, and I realize now some of the issues with it. I've been wanting to fix it.

And don't worry you're not being rude, I always welcome critique! :D Thank you!
Lycasis Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2012  Student General Artist
Yay ^_^. I can't wait to see more.
