Painting: i31.photobucket.com/albums/c35… "Napoleon at the Saint Bernard Pass" by Jacques-Louis David
Texture from cgtextures.com. Also, Mulan does so count as a princess. If you don't like it, take it up with wikipedia.
Photoshop, 3 hours.
Holy shit, I got another Daily Deviation just over 2 weeks ago and I didn't even know. I just kind of mindlessly accepted the 20 groups that wanted to add it to their gallery, which I thought was cool but, sometimes something gets featured somewhere and I get small floods. I'm not sure how it didn't even occur to me to go check out where it was featured. I only noticed because I got a group request to have it on DailyDeviation-Archive, and the first thought to pass through my head was, hmm, that's weird.
This painting is definitely very raw. My original description from 2011 says I pushed it out it in just 3 hours, which, even now, is excellent for me.
There's a lot I would change about this drawing if I could do it over again, but three of the things I wouldn't change would be the interaction of the texture and the work, which I'm still trying to figure out at how I managed to do that. Mulan's face and foot were great as well, which is a great example of how my magum opus of a metric shitton of faces in varying degrees of quality Deus affected my knowledge in how to paint and light faces in general.
Anyway, that brings my daily deviation count up to two, which is totally cool. Thanks for all the comments and group adds, that is the bomb. Follow me over on Tumblr serain.tumblr.com, which I check much more often than here.
Pocahontas and Mulan has the best songs in it.
Hence why I love both.
(Also I like ALL their songs by both movies. ...Unlike other movies where I only like a song or two.)
Funny how *everyone* (including Disney themselves) always seem to leave out Princess Eilonwy of Black Cauldron. Shes a princess. Shes awesome, too.
this is amazing, congrats on the DD!
i myself have redone that painting of napoleon, because the pose is just so great.
Have a nice day and Happy New Year!
Awesome work, and great addition to an old bandwagon. Congrats on the DD, and happy 2014!
