Sorry, late upload. This was supposed to be ready by November 24th but I got a bit too busy and this piece took me forever to finish. My tablet broke and I just draw with my phone and finger.
Some of the characters may look off, but that’s probably just because I no longer have the time to fix the rest of my errors. Still hope you guys like it though! If you wanna see the speedpaint, it’ll be available on tiktok soon.
If you guys wanted to download this image in high resolution, you may check it out in my Ko-Fi page.
MAN finally able to make some fanart!! Encanto is such a great film abt generational trauma n the music n designs slap so hard??? This is like one of the few latest Disney movies I rly enjoyed n would rewatch :)
Luisa is the best older sister since Nani. Her interactions with Mirabel are so positive, and she never treats Mirabel poorly because she doesn’t have a gift. In The Family Madrigal, she smiles at Mirabel and gives her a thumb’s up. In Surface Pressure, she protects Mirabel from anything that may hurt her. There’s even a family photo right before the breakfast scene that shows Luisa with her arm around Mirabel, pulling her into the photo.
She even validates Mirabel’s suspicions about the magic. Despite her emotions being depicted as slightly silly (for kids), the narrative plays it dead serious that Luisa is going through a lot and the only person who really seems to understand that is her baby sister.
Just love Luisa and Mirabel’s relationship. It’s so wholesome.
Luisa and Mirabel have a really great and sweet relationship. Luisa seems genuinely very kindhearted and like she takes her role as big sister seriously. She also doesn't treat her differently for having no powers.
When she gets in the way of Luisa, she responds with “careful sis”, unlike Isabela who responds with an angry “what is your problem!?”
And unlike Isabela who is jealous and thinks Mirabel has it easy, Luisa is never seen showing that kind of attitude despite being probably one of the most overworked Madrigal, to the point of being compared to a mule (beast of burden).
The one time we see her yell at Mirabel, she apologizes immediately saying “uh, wow... sorry, that snuck out there”, showing that she almost never gets angry at Mirabel, if ever.
In Surface Pressure she tells Mirabel to give her burdens to her and Mirabel smiles for a split second (while Luisa worries about things that will hurt Mirabel). They also don’t have the kind of animosity that Maribel had with Isabela at the start.
And finally, I mean... look at this 🥺
Mirabel looks so uncertain, I’m wondering if they forgot her again but Luisa noticed and dragged her into the photo.
I hope if a series comes out we will get to explore this dynamic more.
[ID: Digital fanart of Encanto. Side portraits of each of the members of the Madrigal family are arranged on a page, on top of a pattern, and connected together by a flowing line colored in a rainbow gradient. At the end of the line, “La familia Madrigal” is written. In order: Abuela has a pink candle, Dolores a sound wave and music notes, Antonio the head of a leopard, Camilo the faces of Bruno and his father, Pepa clouds with rain, Bruno a glass shard with a rat, Julieta some herbs, Maribel a butterfly, Luisa a dumbbell and a rock and Isabela a succulent. All but Maribel and Bruno are facing left.]
