Our Forgotten Favorites by MistyTang Our Forgotten Favorites by MistyTang
I bet you thought I was done with these. I'm not~

"But Misty, three of these ladies aren't really princesses." Yeah, but I'm the queen of rationalization. So there.
I consider Sally (The Nightmare Before Christmas) a "princess" because if Jack is the Pumpkin King, what does that make her?
Same for Jane--if Tarzan is King of the jungle, what does that make her~?
And Meg, I think I remember some variation of the myth where she was like a princess or something? I may be mistaken. But, in any case, she marries a demigod, so she's entitled to be a "princess" (more so than Mulan, in my opinion).
And Kida is obviously a princess, so no rationalization needed there. ;)

Of these four, Kida is my favorite. Hands down, bar none. She is just a powerful character, in every meaning of the word. I adore her. She even gave Pocahontas a run for her money for my favorite in terms of design. :heart:
My sister, *zimeta08, likes Jane best for our "forgotten" favorites. (Jane is a very close second for me.) And Kida is also my little sister ~ratscout's "forgotten" favorite.

Other Princesses works in this series can be seen here: [link]

EDIT: I addressed this before on a previous Princesses pieces, but I've already gotten this question a few times on this one, so: for my "princesses" pieces, I wanted them to have a dreamy and demure look, and I felt that by having their eyes closed that would lend to the mood. :nod:
I honestly do not understand why people seem to be put-off by having their eyes closed. :lol:

Works in progress:

Sally, Jane, Meg, and Kida (c) Disney
Artwork (c) Me, Jaclyn Renata Weber, AKA MistyTang.

At the end of Mulan, the Emperor gave her the crest of the royal family. Making her a princess.

In the original myth Meg was the princess of Thebes and Hercules's first wife. In some version he killed her and their children, in some just the kids and she was given to his cousin. In the latter she became his cousin's wife and they had a couple kids together.

I will never, ever forget Meg. I actually recently made a duct-tape dress that looked like her's. You know, ish. Best artwork I've seen of her in a long time, though!

I actually watched Tarzan, Hercules, and Atlantis very recently (And Nightmare within the last year.) I'd forgotten just how much I loved all those movies and characters. Actually, add Belle onto the list, and my personality is basically a mish-mash of these characters.

Meg is a character mad up by Disney so she doesn't rely ageist in the reel variation of any myth that i know, at list not the reel myth. jest had to say that. and yes shes with a god that makes her some thing special not a princess, and wen you are with a king you are not a princess you are a queen witch means most off this are queen.

MistyTang Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2011
No, Megara is in the myths. She was Hercules' first wife (and she met a very sad end, actually). And it has been confirmed by my sister and several others that Megara's father was Creon, King of Thebes. So, she is a princess.

And queen is close enough to princess in my book, so I rationalized the others in~ :)

I like everything EXCEPT kida....that face is way off and the bone protruding from her chin and cheek bone make her look like shes 60 years old. You should consider redrawing that part, however the other pieces are beautifully done.

:iconmistytang:
MistyTang Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2011
No, Kida has a very hard facial structure. That's a big reason why I like her--her harsh design is very rare for a leading lady in a Disney film. I will not redesign her just to make her look "softer".

lovemuffin15 Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2011  Student Digital Artist
Well you are right about her having "rough" features if by "rough" you mean she was drawn with hard/straight edges but she is definately not as masculine/droopy as you have displayed her. (I'm not "trolling, I swear, just critiquing artist to artist) . I'm an animation student myself and I was taught in class how Disney will animate characters in this fashion to show that the character is good by nature but has a dark past or troubles in life. Kida has straight edges but your Kida is very off she looks very morphed and saggy. You have the ability to re-draw her if you want, I'm sure it didn't take you more than 5 mins to draw the last one. Besides that problem I have with it I think the rest of the drawings are great.

MistyTang Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2011
No, I was talking about her basic facial structure. Kida has very prominent features; strong chin, pronounced cheekbones, etc. In translating her from the Atlantis style to my style, I keep these things basic facial features constant as I would any other character.

I still feel as though her face is drooping, and inaccurate.

These are beautiful drawings, and I agree completely with your reasoning. These are four of my absolute favorite Disney characters, and they really do deserve more respect than they get.

Eilonwy's a princess, but she doesn't count due to being 3 years underage, and yes, Megara's a princess. Of Thebes.
