Hua Mulan Goes to War by rosene547 Hua Mulan Goes to War by rosene547
This was an incredibly fun project to work on! I watched the movie Mulan a few times and was inspired to draw her, but I wanted to make her appear real, and not really like the cartoon. I chose this scene, which was the one where she decides to join the army in her father's place. The entire picture is drawn with graphite pencils, a tissue for blending, and a kneaded eraser.

Awesome. Just out of curiosity, what size do you usually work in? (eg. A3, A4...)

Thank you! I almost always use 11x14" I believe that's A3.

What a beautiful drawing!
The only very slight criticism would be that for true realism there would be a slight disparity between the reflections on the two sides of the blade.  But that in itself would probably spoil the image.

Again I applaud you for such a lovely image.

The side of the img on the sword looks more realistic, maybe because of the shadows.

Perfect it does look like how the actress would appear if there was a live action film version of the legend. :)
