Pocahontas by sakimichan Pocahontas by sakimichan
pocahontas from disney, had this somewhere in my wip folder, finally decided to Finish it, I've always been fascinated by her face structure, I love her refined jaw line and her slightly slanted eyes. I admire her spirit, she's not like any standard disney princesses and because of that she's in my top 3 female disney character if not first. I based this portrait off of a scene in the movie when they first meet *_*

edit: made her look a bit less european and added a bit more texture to her skin.

ps. I'm not trying to make her realistic, her face is stylized to the disney version.

used: photoshop CS 4

The story of Pochahontas has been messed with so many times, furthermore we had no princesses.  We didn't need princesses.  There is no such thing as an Indian princess.

there is such a thing... what you only have room for the blonde princesses who need a prince?!

I'm pretty sure you're a troll. 

Some women were called princesses to appeal to romanticism or to white people who couldn't understand anyone else's social structure.

I'm trying, as I have been taught, to re-educate as Disney and Hollywood have bastardized our heritage.

Pocahontas, btw, was so valued as to be bought as property.  She had an abusive older brother and a stepmother who hated her.  She died of the plague in a loveless marriage.

Let your brain party with that.

You must be loads of fun at Thanksgiving, just like my mother! She's half Apache and she raised us the way our grandpa would have wanted, and my baby sister and I have fun sitting by at Thanksgiving while she gathers 'round all the little white children and educates them on how shit should have really went down with the pilgrims, and how that story and every other story about NAs has been bastardized and romanticized by white people to the point that it just makes her want to puke.

That said, this artwork is beautiful and I love her take on it. Art is art.

Actually, you're right.  I wish people happy rape day and Chanukkah as well. 
I do like the way she textured her skin, it's a little inconsistent on the neck.  Her face looks just a touch German to me, but... where did the Vikings land?  Right there, so where it makes me twitch, it might just be as right as you can get.
I just saw the word princess and needed to say something.  I do the same thing in any situation.
