shoomlah:

Finally updated Pocahontas!  I don’t think this is what people were expecting as the next entry in the series, but some of the criticisms of my first design have been eating away at me for years now and I needed to get off my ass and address them.

So hey!  Spunky age-appropriate Pocahontas/Matoaka, sans feathers in the hair/European imagery/other superfluous details.  This is closer to accounts and illustrations of Powhatan dress from the period, and I kinda think it’s closer to the Disney design anyway. WIN/WIN.

Thanks to everyone who’s educated my ass over the past couple of years, includingmoniquillapihtawikosisanthis-is-not-native, and numerous others.  You’ve made me a way more thoughtful artist in the process. :)

I ASSUMED THAT the egregious redesigns of the Disney Princesses would stop at Belle or Cinderella and tossing glitter on every gal's dress, but apparently it has begun again. A random Disney tumbleblog, thedisneydifference, has posted some low quality scans and instagram shots of Pocahontas outfitted with gaudy jewelry pinned to the collar and waist of the dress (almost mildly resigned) and impractical feather earnings that a would land her on an episode of Fashion Police. The only thing left to change is her hair and dress which is seriously lacking in the glitter department. EDIT (12/19/2012): The equally gaudy backpack the artwork is featured on is available for purchase at the disney store, higher quality screens are now available above.

IF THERE'S ANYTHING DeciantART user FERNL loves to do, its re-imagine Disney characters as color coded mermaids --- obviously stemming from an adoration of 1989's The Little Mermaid. The following pieces below are a collection of Disney Heroes and Disney Heroines as the aforementioned.

TO CELEBRATE: the Holiday/Christmas season, petitetiaras and bibbitybobbitywho has created Tumblr icons of the Disney Princesses dressed in the festive, tacky red, green and white clothing that has become representative of snow, sweets and gifts under the tree. Though they deem they are for tumblr, I've seen plenty of LiveJournal users reduce the sizes to the appropriate 100x100 pixels and use them here.

VirginieSiveton is a pretty proficient artist who enjoys drawing pin up versions the Disney Princesses and general human models. Of his pinup I thought the ones of Tiana and Pocahontas were probably his strongest (the POC heroines, Mulan, Jasmine and Esmeralda were borderline whitewashed). Be sure to check out his gallery in the link.
