RRW- Welcome Leia! by TaijaVigilia RRW- Welcome Leia! by TaijaVigilia
Oh my god this took over a month to finish, so sorry for taking forever but it's been one of the messiest and most unpleasant months of the century for this household. Without going into too much detail lets just say every single winter bug and -itis that you can think of we've probably had and only just managed to sort of recover for Christmas.
This is the third of the Random Request Week requests and this one's for :iconrae-22:

The brief was that it "has to do with Disney buying Lucas films [link] as you may or may not have known. My husband I were thinking that this technically makes Princess Leia (from star wars) a Disney princess. So i was think you could draw all or some (its up to you) of the Disney princesses meeting/welcoming Princess Leia, and um her reaction. Which I will leave up to you, some ideas though are she is scared, confused, angry, or even happy.".
Well, ultimately I couldn't think of any other reaction than happy and all-around welcoming, we are talking about Disney princesses after all. And Leia might have been confused at first but how can you not be happy when everyone around you is happy? :D

I went digital with this since my hands are still infuriatingly shaky after a long flu. Long live the undo button! Textures used from [link] , [link] and [link] plus one from official Disney website backgrounds and one of my own.

This is very sweet, beautiful, adorable, and appropriate. I only wish that Merida, Elsa, and Anna were shown! (Also, I like the differences in Jasmine's and Cinderella's reactions to having to carry Punz's hair...XD Man, I wish she were depicted with the short brunette more often!!)

Thanks and this is an older piece from 2012 so predates Frozen and if my memory serves me right also predates Merida's coronation into the Princess franchise.  :)

Yaaay!

Leia, Mulan, Merida, Belle, and the other 90s-and-later Princesses will now have another person to be badass with. ;}

PS: Not that the pre-90s ladies aren't awesome, but they are notably lacking in the butt-kicking department.

haha this is awesome though! I imagine her being a bit cautious at first/almost shooting them, but then starting to like having girl friends. XD I really like that you put faint patterns in some of their dresses : )

Thank you! I made this before Merida had her official coronation so this one just includes the ones who were official princesses at the time of making this.  And Leia of course.

There's several youtube videos (and plenty of other illustrations and comics) that were made around the same time after Disney bought Star Wars, I don't think anyone knew what the other was doing.   The request for this was made about a month before I submitted it to dA too.

I can think of other reaction... Leia shoots all the Disney's princesses and runs away from hell called Disney while she still can.

TaijaVigilia Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I didn't think she'd be so violent as to shoot them... more probably she'd just leg it to the spaceship port, grab Han and fly off. :) I would too, who could deal with all the tea parties??

Well I'm glad you like the piece but in the future you can go troll someone who cares about Star Wars since I have no personal feelings or opinions about it (this piece was a request). ;)

I believe "trolling" involves insulting and being sarcastic I did NOT do so about your artwork. I honestly do not care about StarWars since I am not involved professionaly or financially with the Lucas Corporation nor Disney in any way whatsoever.
