— disastrous strokes

merida from brave

Here’s Merida. I drew her from memory, so don’t nitpick about her clothes.

I liked Brave! I didn’t love everything about it, but I’d say it did what it set out to do: tell a story about a mother and a daughter. The emotional resonance succeeded for the most part, in that special way that only Pixar movies can showcase. Female characters do not exist solely to find mates. People would do well to remember this.

Drawn on an iPad using the Paper by FiftyThree. I really like Zen Brush, too, but it’s not as intuitive as Paper. I’ve tried Sketchbook Pro and I found it so-so, and I think I paid for a few that really did nothing for me, since I can’t even remember their names. Anyone have any other app recommendations?
