I'll chase the wind. by alicexz I'll chase the wind. by alicexz
Saw Brave yesterday! Overall I agree with the consensus that it's one of the weakest Pixar movies (it got really awkward right after the ~FATE CHANGE~), however that doesn't mean it didn't have great moments. And of course it was an incredibly beautiful and inspiring piece of animation. And of course I love Merida's red hair.

This part at the beginning (where Merida just goes out and has fun) was my favorite by far! And the song that goes with the scene is wonderful - "Touch the Sky" by Julie Fowlis [link]

So here is a landscape/lighting study, painted in Adobe Photoshop, partially from memory and with reference to what I could get out of the trailer: [link] This of course, serves as a desktop wallpaper (just download!)

Even though you didn't need a critique, I'll give you one anyways haha!
This artist shows what it means to captivate the essence of Disney movies and their true beauty and magic. I believe that these memories will be passed on and on through generations, due to the fact you can clearly see the realism and elegance in this piece! I forgot how Brave even really plays out, but I do remember this scene a bit. Even so, you captured the entire movie's essence in one scene, from what I see!

Well done, my friend! Keep up the good work! ♥♪ :)

The only part I liked about that movie was this part and every scene with her brothers in it (I loved them). Can you do a painting of them? It would be much appreciated. I love your work. :)
