Merida by Nafah Merida by Nafah
Sooo, I'm pretty excited about this movie.
This has been sitting on my computer for a little bit. I've been doing this in my spare time for a while (a long while) and I finally finished it up today, yay!
Now back to work.

Daily Deviation

Given 2012-06-22
Merida, a marvelously clean, crisp illustration by ~Nafah. The fiery red hair really stands out against the cool backdrop, and the style of the whole piece is simply fantastic - feels straight out of a storybook! ( Suggested by Minato-Kushina and Featured by alicexz )

I lost the opportunity to see this movie, but according to the critics who saw it, it could have been better. In any case, I was waiting for since last year and when launched, was caught by surprise. More still think it's a good movie - maybe not a Toy Story or Monsters Inc., another good film for sure!

Very well done! (Faves and recommends) I can see why this is a Daily Deviation - this is a very well done classically styled work. I expect the lady herself would love to see it! Keep it up!

OH YES VERY! No, she is still very strong and all "I do what I want!" The story just focuses more around another topic that is brough on by her attitude.
