Step 16: Darken the lines to create Merida's neck. Under the neck, draw a wavy line to represent the top of the dress. Then draw the detail under it by adding a few X-shaped lines to the top opening of the dress.
Step 17: That’s it! You now have a nice sketch of Princess Merida from Brave. You can stop at this quick drawing for a rough, sketchy look or go for a more finished look by continuing to the step below.
Step 18: For a more finished, inked look, carefully draw over the final sketch lines with a pen or marker. Wait for the ink to dry, and then get rid of every pencil mark with an eraser. You now have a finished inked drawing of Merida! You can stop here or go to the final step to complete your Merida drawing.
Final Step: For a completely finished Merida drawing, you have to color it. You can use markers, color pencils or even crayons! Merida is a redhead, so you can color her hair red-orange or use a blend of orange, red and yellow for a more hair-like texture. Merida's skin is peach, but if you don't have peach, improvise and use yellow-orange or light brown. Experiment! Her eyes are blue-green, and her dress is dark green. That’s it! You now have a completed drawing of Merida from Disney•Pixar's Brave movie.
