#67 Who is that girl I see by Kiriya-Kirihara #67 Who is that girl I see by Kiriya-Kirihara
"Who is that girl I see
Staring straight
Back at me?
Why is my reflection someone
I don't know?
Somehow I cannot hide
Who I am
Though I've tried
When will my reflection show
Who I am inside?
When will my reflection show
Who I am inside?"

I ALWAYS got goosflesh on my skin while listening to the song. To me it's one of the most emotional and truthful songs Disney ever came up with. I guess, there's no one out there who hasn't ever thought of who he/she is! Who they live for?

Anyways, have you ever read the original poem of Hua Mulan? I love it! You should give it a try! (though, it's of course not as difficult as Shakespeare or Goethe to understand XDDD)

hmmm I guess Oct or Nov 2010 was the first princess, Pocahontas done by me? OO Actually I'm not sure anymore but I know it's a looong time ago and yes improvement can't be denied here! But I'm unsure with the next one ^^; Guess, they might be as difficult as everything I try not to draw XD

they are but that might be because I try to practise on the backgrounds as much as possible...sadly I fail in 80% of all backgrounds I did :D

Just an FYI. Not many people know this but the song is called Reflection by Christina Aguilera.
Love the picture here. Mushu is drawn to fit his personality.

eeeeh well I know the song is called Reflection, as many people do know, but to me... the song title didn't fit the scene of the picture! Although, I just figured that the part I wrote was suiting better ^^ And well, Christina Aguilera was just asked to sing it like Celine Dyon was asked to sing Tales as old as times... this doesn't have to do anything with the movie itself, neither the song which is originally sung by the voice actor herself!
Anyways, thank you a lot for the comment :)
I liked to draw Mushu, though he got on my nerves time by time in the movie ^^
