Princess Avengers: THOR by ThinkingMakesItSo Princess Avengers: THOR by ThinkingMakesItSo
Guess what’s actually REALLY HARD TO DRAW WELL...
If you guessed hair then you are absolutely correct.

This piece was a challenge. I wanted to finish up with a bang, and I think that Thor turned out to be the most expressive and dynamic Princess Avenger yet.
Although I originally intended to only stick to the classic hand drawn Disney princesses for inspiration I eventually relented because the frying pan visual gag works so well.
I also wanted to capture the awkward adolescent lightheartedness of Tangled’s Rapunzel. Thematically both Thor and Rapunzel have quite a bit in common, having lived insular existences before finding themselves in a strange new world to explore and fight for. In the piece I wanted motion to be primary; implied flight, the raised hands, and the twirling hair are all there to give a sense of freedom. However, her awkward smile deliberately indicates that she might not be entirely sure of herself or her newfound powers.

Rapunzel is young, beautiful, and more than a little naive in her original story, and this lead to an interesting design challenge. So far I’ve tried to make the PA’s sexy without objectifying them, but after redesigning Thor’s armor and combining it with a young girl in a liberated pose I’m not sure how it reads.
She was also a challenge to do realistically, as her features are so exaggerated in the film and her main distinguishing (realistic) characteristic is her hair.
If you have any thoughts on this be sure to share them in the comments.

Oh! Should she have had a lizard? Think about it...


This concludes my Disney Princess Avengers mashup.
In a lot of ways it’s fitting. I started this bizarre experiment nearly a year ago with a crude rendition of Thor as Belle and the reception was so rapid and overwhelming I knew I had to do more than just dip a toe into the world of fan-art.

This series of images has gotten me an article on Huffington Post, and more subscriber views than anything else that I have yet produced. I’m grateful for all the attention that I’ve received.
On that note, I want to thank everyone who has taken the time to enjoy my work, superficial though it may be.

This is awesome and super funny cause if her frying pan was magical it would burn and shock you at the same time. Great job on this pic and as someone else said you did an awesome job on her hair!
