Brave - 'Winter's Chill' by OrbitalWings Brave - 'Winter's Chill' by OrbitalWings
Started this one on holiday just after I finished the Faora pic, but as you can see, it kiiiinda got away from me. Originally it was meant to feature a warmer colour palette, but I've always struggled with cool colours so I decided to challenge myself.

As for Merida's outfit, this was an attempt to fight back at Disney's stupid 'prettyfication' of Merida. I decided to take her to the opposite end of the scale and give her an outfit more befitting of her character. As you can probably tell, it has a very Lord of the Rings-esque vibe to it. Boromir's clothing in particular inspired the design.

Also remind me to never ever ever draw rocks again.

Quite Nice. I enjoy the details with the knotwork and the chainmail and that brooch, and the blades of grass coming out of the snow, and... I could totally see Merida maturing into an Adventurer. Not just a person who goes on wild rambles through the woods and up rock walls seeking for excitement, but as an earnest quest-and-defence type.
