"Warrior" Disney Princesses

There are so many reinterpretations of Disney Princesses out there. They can be fun at times and boring and repetitive at others. Sometimes they just boggle the mind. Mike Roshuk's interpretation of the princesses as "Fantasy Warriors" is possibly the weirdest and creepiest I have seen.

"I've always been inspired by popular Fantasy Artists, most notably Luis Royo and Boris Vallejo, with their images of strong, sexy, warrior women. I started creating images like these because I enjoyed the trial and error process of digitally illustrating armor in Photoshop and trying to make it look realistic, while still keeping the painted-like quality.

So I got this idea of recreating the famous fairytale princesses back in the Spring of 2012, while I was working on my comic CONFLICT. Actually the first image I did like this was a recreation of the popular character Wonder Woman. I enjoyed the result so much that I began thinking "hmm what other popular characters would this style contrast well with?" I was watching a lot of Disney movies around then (since my daughter was 4 at the time), and the first one to pop into my head was Snow White. After that one turned out better than I expected, I decided to continue with creating images of the other famed princesses."

Not sure that holding a weapon and making a fierce face makes one a strong warrior. They look kind of cold and exposed, no matter how long their loincloth strip of material is. Mermaid Ariel might be my favorite because if anything she looks the most accurate. Snow White looks like she finds her self sexy too though.
