Merida by runawaywithyou Merida by runawaywithyou
24/04/13 edit: sorry for the awful watermark, I'm adding it since this drawing it's being stolen all the time. I'm sad because it ruins it. but I just get tired of seeing people reposting it and claiming it as their own.

I love Merida she is so cute I had to draw her > _ <
I hope she looks well in my anime style xD, her hair was a pain to color but I had fun drawing here ^^ for the pose I looked some real archers photos (so I hope I did it well xD)
I enjoyed drawing the background as well, wanted it to look more dreamy <3

hope you like it!! ^^

pointless information: finished at 0:00 spanish time


time--> 8 hours (quite fast the hair took 2 hours though )
tools--> SAI, PS CS5, intuos4
merida / brave (c) disney pixar
artwork (c) me

Do you have the art available for purchase?  I would love to frame it and give it to my daughter for her birthday since we are doing a Brave themed birthday party and decorating her room in a Brave theme.

You may want to put your watermark on the face or hair. Somebody can easily cut out the "Runawaywithyou" part.
This is amazing! It's too bad people steal this though...

Judging from the "render" you linked to in a poll, the art thief went to great lengths to cut the subject out of the background, so do you really think a faint watermark is going to keep them from cleaning that out too? It's not as hard as you'd think, dA's ugly watermark is very subtle and doesn't have much of an effect on the colors; it's just enough to "ruin" the art and stop casual thieves, and that's all it can do.

I'd sooner suggest planting your watermark on the subject herself, (Like in front of her hair, which is very detailed.) and don't post the drawing at a high resolution so they can't edit your personal watermark out cleanly, or sell it as a print, because it will be too small. You can also make your watermark fully opaque/non-transparent, so they can't recreate the details underneath the watermark at all. Pretty much, your own unique watermark can actually become a bigger pain to clean out than dA's default one if you're feeling creative.

Also, besides that, if the thief knows what they're doing, they can access the high resolution thumbnail on dA's servers, (Like the kind that Daily Deviations or a Featured widget uses.) so the watermark on the actual image won't deter them at all. (For instance, I have actually saved the high-res thumbnails of a few drawings before to my hard drive, instead of the actual deviation, because they used the hideous watermark.)

As it is now, this is a hideous band-aid solution that won't fix anything for the dedicated thief. As artists, we have way more unique ways to stop art theft, and this isn't one of them.
