Humanized (Non)Disney Animals by CarmenFoolHeart Humanized (Non)Disney Animals by CarmenFoolHeart
So here are some of my favourite and less favourite but all well-loved Disney and one Dreamworks female animals portrayed as humans! ^^
I've seen people do this with Disney animals and ponies. I really like the idea and wanted to play too.
So we have Rain, the beautiful and brave horse from Dreamworks animation Spirit. I was going to make her native since she belongs to Little Creek but... She HAS blue eyes and light mane and I started to think: "Hey, horses came with Europeans to America and all horses owned by natives were runaways and their offspring... She's a white girl raised by natives then!" I modeled her outfit after Lakota clothes since Little Creek was a lakota. She turned out very beautiful, my favourite female drawing this far. O.o
Lady from the iconic Lady and The Tramp. I LOVE her. One of my favourite Disney heroines. She got the blue theme colour because of her collar. There isn't much to be said about her design. I love her. Did I say that already?
Kiara from Lion King 2, my favourite lioness. I modeled her outfit after the Masai tribe from Kenya. Why? Cause I wasn't sure where Lion King took place and because in one episode of Timon and Pumba the hyenas say in a joke that they are not in Kenya anymore. And Masai because they were easiest to find pictures of and those clothes are cool. I love Kiara, drawing her was why I started this whole picture.
Nala! Because if you have Kiara, you got to have her mother. Same model, different version. I like her eyes. I actually like black women, I always wanted to play with black dolls when I was little. I find that skin colour very, very beautiful. The other one I like is very tan... It was a delight to draw two dark women here! ^^
Terk from Tarzan! I didn't make her bald because she has very distinct hair-like fur on her head so... I made her a freeky hair-style instead. I actually like bald women too but... Terk, you make up for the hair with your muscles! Her clothes are simply modeled after Jane's outfit at the end of the movie.
Duchess from Aristocats. I like her demure air and delicate mannerism. I modeled her after her owner. I always wanted to have eyes like hers for jewelry. They looked like saphires. But cats always have it better. ^^"

I own none of these characters! :D

Should I do male animals too? I want to do Maximus from Tangled... xD

I wish you would do the hyenas from the Lion King, they were allways my favorite characters in the movie. I couldn't help but feel bad for them since they were forced by the lions to live in an elephant grave yard. Now I know they tried to eat Simba and help Scar take power, but it was ether that or starve. Also it's not like lions don't kill and eat baby hyenas, after all we never see any hyena cubs in the movie. Plus the fact all the lions are voiced by white people and the hyenas by black and Hispanic people seems a little racist to me.

I always adored them, too! Especially Zhenzi. She was so tough and cool. I always felt that their evil deed were Mufasa's fault. You cannot banish an entire race to live in some half-dead wasteland and them expect them to die quietly. And the voice-casting is definitely racist. Maybe I could draw the hyenas doing something sweet and fun. They need it.

I agree with everything you just wrote. Also, what happen to the hyenas in Lion King II? Why didn't Disney use them instead of creating a pride of lions we never saw in the first movie? They were just shoved in their even though the hyenas would have fit that role perfectly.

Nope. The movie itself refers to her as a girl. But because of the gender roles and coding in our society and Disney Animated Movies themselves, many people thought she was male. :)

I love your designs. ^^ My favorites are Lady, Kiara and Terk.
Rain's design is also beautiful and makes me think of a few history courses from a while back. Historically, American Indian tribes would intermarry with European settlers and also adopt European children into their tribes. There have been accounts of American Indians with blue eyes because of intermarriages and adoption. There are still some modern Americans that claim Amerindian heritage even if they don't fit the exact stereotype.

CarmenFoolHeart Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

Aww, thank you!<3

I actually heard something similiar about how Natives and the settlers mixed/adopted and this resulted in blonde natives. I'm from Finland (Nothern Europe) so this was new info for me! We do not go into American history that deeply, just cover the basics. So some people can still claim that heritage but not look like the typical image... Wow. Thank you for feeding my inner history nerd! ;)

It seems my hunch about making Rain so light was right. She can be either adopted or mixed then. :)

I can't say I blame you. I live in the US and I didn't really hear much about other history until now in Uni. Hell, I didn't hear about the blond, light-eyed natives until uni! You know, before it was all ice road trucks and pawn shops.

Glad to help. ^^

These are BEAUTIUFL!! I love it so much! Lady is my favorite! This is exactly how I picture her human! Well done!

 

And another thing, you were not wrong to have Rain with white hair and blue eyes. A lot of people have the misconception that all Native Americans back then had dark hair and brown eyes, but when some explorers got there, there were some Native Americans who were born blonde hair and blue eyed because of marriages between Europeans before other explorers got there. So you got it spot on!

CarmenFoolHeart Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

Awww, thank you! Lady is actually based on a long image of mine; I always imagined her human version to look like that. Even as a little girl. :giggle:

 

Wow, really? What a knowledge flash! O.O

The same mixing happened with the indigenous people, Saami, in my country and nowadays most of them look white, even blonde, because of intermarrying with other people. So Natives had it like that too... I never knew! I'm so happy now, I have earned new history knowledge! Then Rain can be a mix. Both from Europe and America, like horses. :)

You're welcome. You had a good vision for her! 

:D Glad  I could educate you. My family is partially Native American on my dad's side, and both my parents are historians, and we teach people the real education of Native Americans and Mountain men when we go to rendezvous and festivals dressed in our Native clothing and set up our teepees and tents.

Really? Oooh, that's cool about your country, I didn't know they had intermarrying either.

Really? Your family is? That is so awesome! It makes you the first person with Native roots I've spoken to! At least that I know. Since America is so far away that is only natural but still, I'm so happy now. :D

Your parents must be awesome. I love, love, LOVE history!!<33 What kind of clothes do you wear for festivals? Which tribe is your father's family from or do they know? :)

 

Actually, there has been so much Saami intermarrying that most of them look completely white nowadays. ^^

I'm glad! ^^ And you are the first person I've spoken to that's from Poland! ^^ 

Thank you, and yeah, we LOVE history too. We love it so much and always like to go to the history museums. My mom and I wear our Native American dresses, and my brothers and dad wear mountain men clothing. I'm a bit mixed up on what tribes we're from, but I know for sure there's Cheyenne and Ute.

Saami? Is that a kind of clan or tribe?
