Brave


I did this piece over a couple of evenings for a charity auction for the Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco. I'm pretty happy with the colors otherwise there are some other issues that I would treat differently if I allowed myself some more time. I expect I'll take another whirl with this character. Her name is Merida, the lead from Pixar's "Brave" coming out next summer. It's a project I've been involved with for quite a while, also known as my "day job".

Wonderful Piece. My personal favorite part is how her dress seem to poke out ever so slightly against the background resembling a sort of dagger or saber tooth tiger, almost reminiscent of her future battles in Brave.

Hi Steve!

Do you do commissions? Is there some way I can contact you if so?

Love your work,
Ben

I generally don't do commissions because I'm so bad at getting them done. Knowing I owe somebody a piece of artwork ends up stressing me out. I'm better at contributing to auctions.

It is easy to completely call at your loyalty during the function you are writing. Everybody hopes for far more amorous internet writers as you which are usually not anxious to express that feel. Constantly do your main cardiovascular system..
