Disney Princessess by DustyLeaves Disney Princessess by DustyLeaves
A couple of months ago I started working on this, wanting to draw the Disney Princesses in Leyendecker's style, and it's been an on and off project since then. 
Today I finally finished it, and i'm really glad I did! There's tons of stuff I can see now should be fixed or changed, but I could keep working on this forever and it would never be done if I did, haha! 
It was all done left-handed :) 

From left to right (based on the level of their heads) 
Back row - Aurora, Cinderella 
Middle row - Rapunzel, Pocahontas, Merida, Elsa, Belle, Tiana, Ariel, Mulan 
Front row - Snow-white, Anna, Jasmine

My first thought was "My God, they're all so ugly." I think US media brainwashing has thoroughly done its work on me...heh. I need to work on that.

I'm not familiar with the artist you studied, but it has a very Master art feel to it, so I'm going to assume you did an awesome job! Looking closer I actually really love their faces. They are handsome. I love the bone structure on Pocahontas.

She actually is.
Mulan, however, isn't a princess at all. She is included in Disney branding but never had the status of royalty.
Kida was princess at the beginning, and then became the ruler of Atlantis at the end of the film.
They don't use her for branding because she doesn't follow the same aesthetic as the others, they used a different cartoonist. He was actually the same artist that did the artwork for the hellboy graphic novels.

I don't see why, I know she isn't "official" but she's more of a princess than Mulan. I mean, Mulan was the daughter of a well decorated soldier, and if you include the second movie, she marries a captain. She has no credentials to claim royalty. Kida, however, is the daughter of the king of Atlantis! That means she's a princess! How could you get any more official than that? I'm not yelling at you though, just at the ridiculousness of Disney's logic... I do really like your piece though, I love seeing different interpretations of the princesses and Mulan. The soft colors are pleasant as well.

I love the style but there's one thing that urks me about this. At first, I asked myself "Where's Mulan?" then saw in the description that she is the last one on the right and I would have never guessed. She could have had the full face white make-up, traditional Chinese style dress, the flower comb in her hair, straight black hair or hair in the bun. There's none of those features that normally associate with her character whereas the other princesses have their usual appearances from the movies.

I'm having the same problem. Couldn't really tell who was who without the commentary. The artist did a really good job on this but I feel that there could've been more effort on this.

My intention was not to make them look exactly like the disney princesses, but to give them unique features that would make them more human and fit the leyendecker style, rather than them looking like copies, so what kind of effort are you thinking of? The point was not for them to be recognizable as Disney princesses, unless you had been told or understood why all these women had been put together on one drawing :)

DustyLeaves Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I can see what you mean, but I wanted this to be leyendecker inspired so I drew all the dresses and hairstyles to fit the time period Leyendecker was from, and the kind of clothes he liked to draw : ) I also took the colors from her Warrior outfit, rather than the bride one, as she was not comfortable in the traditional clothes and got to grow the most when she was on the battlefield.

I love how you kept all of their "ethnic specific" features. Most of the time, Disney Princessess look like Barbie dolls with different hair color and clothing but this piece is proud to show their differences! Well deserved DD
