Samurai Merida by Skirtzzz Samurai Merida by Skirtzzz
When quest time rolls around, Merida trades in her beloved arrows for a sword and is ready to kick some tail. She may be the new girl, but I think she's got enough moxie for 10 princesses. She is the Samurai!
There is absolutely nobody suited for this sphere...which stinks- this is easily one of my top three from the game. So uh. YEP. I wasn't sure where I was going with this outfit- I tried to mix in Celtic themes of hers along with some saturated gradient fabrics from the FF Samurai outfits, and made up a random headpiece to match those. I have no idea. Blah.

There have been a lot of people asking me if they can cosplay these designs, and the answer is YES! The only thing is I would appreciate credit and a link back to my gallery here, and I demand you show me all of the pictures so I can cry over them and die happily- that is all! Thank you so much!

I cause nonsense in more places than one-

"I cannot use a bow anymore. I have trained myself in fighting with a katana, the sword of the ancient samurai, in order to win the Game. And win I shall. I will be there at the Gathering, I will claim the Price.

There can be only one."

Skirtzzz Feb 23, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks a lot!
Ah, no brush- just turned smudge up REALLY high and hand drew all of it like that.

cool! i've never thought of trying that :D do you have a certain brush pack you prefer though? i really like how you did the skin and highlights on your drawing of poison ivy^.^ i've been trying to figure out how to do that

Ah, I've never actually used custom brushes. I'm a simple lady, haha.

haha that's cool ^.^ it's a good thing, that way your brush panel isn't all clogged up :XD:
i always thought of her as an archer or something like that, but she looks awesome as a samurai!
