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

The more I look at this pic the more I like Rain's design. That might be because of my native heritage, oh well.

It means a lot to me when people with that heritage compliment this design for her! I tried to be as acurate as possible. ^^

Funny thing is, is that while I'm a 'half-breed' I have Native American blood on both sides of the family, my Great Grandmother on my dad's side was a full blooded Cherokee, and and on mom's 
side is the Uni (annoyingly unknown point pleasent tribe that was part of the Shawnee)
which goes back to the early settlers.

It must be amazing having such a varied background behind you. And it even goes back to early settlers!  O.O

German, English, Welsh and Irish (or Scottish can't remember right now) and a couple others I can't recall at the momment, ya I'd say my family is pretty varied.

And it goes as far back as Henry the eighth's time. (well, the 
English/Welsh part does anyways, not too sure about the rest...)

Roma as in Romen or Romanian?

WOW!! That is very varied! :D


Roma as in romani, the nomadic people who have been in Europe since Middle Ages. The more known term is "gypsy" but it's actually a slur and should not be used. My mother has that lineage and my father has Italian. :)

I've always thought Romanian culture was interesting, tho once I found out what red stood for I got vary weirded out during the fest of fools scene.

In my mind Romanian people and Gypsys are two different things that sometimes cross over as one refers to a specific race while the other does not.

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. :)

Actually, they say it in the movie a couple of times. Her mother calls her "young lady" at the beginning. :D She was my childhood favourite because of that. But trust me, ALL my friends thought she was a boy! ;)

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. :)

You're welcome. ^^

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. ^^
