Disney Courture: Merida by Julibee-Darling Disney Courture: Merida by Julibee-Darling
So you know that beautiful spread some lucky illustrator got commissioned for, to design the Disney Princesses with couture flare?

...I didn't think it was cool that Merida got left out.

Seriously, omg, she doesn't need a big fancy dress, THAT HAIR!!!! I had waaay too muh fun doing it.

...and if anybody dares to tell me that she's Pixar and not Disney, you will be slaughtered.

Done with Copic ink pens and markers :)

I love this so much. I have curly hair and avoid self portraits at all times because I can't draw hair. You are my inspiration. I'm going to try to draw curls!

Thank you so much, dear!

Basically I looked at Merida's official pictures...I noticed that she always had several pieces of hair around her top-front hairline that never changed - so I made sure to lay those in accordingly during the presketch - that large fluffy spiral that forms where her natural part is. After that, I lightly drew a wiggly cloud around her head, shoulders, and body to form a guideline of where I wanted her hair to sit. I left it be there and went to map in the rest of the drawing. Once I was ready to ink, I did her face, neck, shoulder, and part of her arms. Then I started drawing in her hair. After the main parts, I basically started free-handing all the curls and spirals. I let myself relax - there's no rhyme or reason to Merida's hair so I didn't think too much on it while piling it on. I hope that makes sense!

It's a Japanese manga about a normal, type A personality girl who joins a group of eccentric fashion design students that need her to be their model. It's pretty short, actually, I think 4 volumes. The story's fun, but it's the art that grabs most people.

Well she's Pixar/Disney, so she is Disney. ;)

If you're talking about the designer dolls then Merida wasn't around when they made those. Merida has hair that's almost as nice as Rapunzel's.:)

Thank you so much! I'm a little surprised the Pixar people didn't put her in a plaid pattern, even a soft, hint-of-one, since the clan tartan is what the ladies would wear anyway...I think....

I see what you mean, I reckon your right there. I visited Scotland recently and read up on some history whilst there, each clan had a different tartan pattern I believe
