Disney Fighter - Pocahontas by joshwmc Disney Fighter - Pocahontas by joshwmc
Next up in my Disney Fighter series is Pocahontas. In her new back story Pocahontas is an environmental activist and the descendant of a great Powhatan warrior, she enters the fighting tournament to literally fight for nature. This was a bit tricky to get right, spent a while just trying to get the right pose, eventually settling for this stance which i think works well. About 8-9 hours on this one, done in Painter.

Dude, you actually managed to make the Disney Princesses cool, a fighting game concept I could actually get behind.

I love how you incorporate their animal friends into the drawings. Special things of significance for each character.
I'm telling you, if I could make video games, this would be an idea I would work out with you. Kind of a Tekken style fighting system, but with these characters. Very nice!

It looks great. Stance is good for the weapon being used on a lower scale and not in a full action.

Juuuuuuuust a tad. Hell, who am I kidding. The others were at least subtle! She's like the female version of Nightwolf from Mortal Kombat! The paint, the feathers, the hatchet.... This kinda touches a nerve....

The reason it irks me so much is because of my own heritage, however diluted it may be, and because I was brought up with a lot of the old ways, and have some full-blood friends.

Noted, I'm from Australia so I'm a little distanced from this, but I can see how the stereotyping would piss you off.

S'okay, racial-profiling is a sensitive issue, and you seemed pretty reasonable all things considered.

It's kind of annoying that these sort of prejudices still exist though. I'm part of a Native club at the local university, and while we were trying to get some donations for an event last semester, some lady actually said "I already give enough money to Indians. I go to the casinos." I've never wanted to pop someone upside the head so much in my life. But hey, shit happens and you can't change the world y'know?

It's an interesting design because you chose to give her jeans...you would think it doesn't gel but somehow it works.

I actually had her wearing a skirt originally similar to her top, but I felt there was too much of the same colour running throughout the design and it needed some contrast.

LordofTibera Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
yeah I see what you mean. I could imagine her with the hide skirt...it would be too traditional and not really as edgy as you may have been going for. Also, a skirt probably wouldn't be the best attire for fighting.
