Merida by HollyBell Merida by HollyBell
I came across a concept art for Pixar's upcoming movie Brave a while back and I've been meaning to draw a fanart based on it since then. I finally got some spare time yesterday to paint Merida, Pixar's first princess :)
Needless to say that I just LOVE the fact that she's a redhead - and a Scottish one at that <3

I like the way you drew her.
Did you know that they just announced the arrival of Merida in the 5th Season of ONCE UPON A TIME? It's gonna be awesome!

Whoo, Merida! Kicking so much ass and looking gorgeous while doing it! Definitely in my top three princesses list (after Belle and Elsa).

It's a kind of magic,
It's a kind of magic,
A kind of magic,

One dream, one soul, one prize, one goal.
One golden glance of what should be
It's a kind of magic
One flash of light that shows the way,
No mortal man can win this day.
It's a kind of magic

The bell that rings inside your mind,
It's challenging the doors of time.
It's a kind of magic

The waiting seems eternity, yeah,
The day will dawn of sanity.
Is this a kind of magic?
There can be only one.
This race that lasts a thousand years, will soon be
done.
This flame that burns inside of me,
I'm hearing secret harmonies.
It's a kind of magic

The bell that rings inside your mind,
Is challenging the doors of time.
It's a kind of magic.
It's a kind of magic.
This race that lasts a thousand years, will soon be,
will soon be, will soon be done.

This is a kind of magic.
There can be only be one.
This race that lasts a thousand years,
Will soon be done.

Magic - it's a kind of magic,
It's a kind of magic,
Magic, magic, magic, magic,
It's magic,
It's a kind of magic.
It's a kind of magic.

Why'd it take Pixar so long to introduce a female lead? They've been around at least 1995. Female leads then is quite mainstream.
