I look once more by shoomlah I look once more by shoomlah
Finally updated Pocahontas! I don't think this is what people were expecting as the next entry in the series, but some of the criticisms of my first design have been eating away at me for years now and I needed to get off my ass and address them.

So hey! Spunky age-appropriate Pocahontas/Matoaka, sans feathers in the hair/European imagery/other superfluous details. This is closer to accounts and illustrations of Powhatan dress from the period, and I kinda think it's closer to the Disney design anyway. WIN/WIN.

Thanks to everyone who's educated my ass over the past couple of years, including moniquill, apihtawikosisan, this-is-not-native, and numerous others. You've made me a way more thoughtful artist in the process. :)

what about when Pocahontas visits London and goes to the King's Court?

Dammit but I love the simplicity of the overall composition.

Did moniquill, apihtawikosisan, etc. provide you with full critiques/references? I'd like to see them, if you don't mind and happen to have the links on hand! :)

I've been following an artist who refuses to take criticism because of how ''an artist puts in hard work and you should not criticise because it hurts their feelings blah blah'' or something along those lines argh wtf ?? i very much preferred how you took in the critiques and improved your drawings ehehehe you're awesome

*showers you with lots of respect and love* I hope to become as good as you someday too!

hahaha, thanks!  Any self-respecting artist- especially a professional artist- should revel in getting feedback and critique. :)

I am completely ignorant as far as fashion history in general and Native American fashion history in particular, but either way she looks awesome! Like what you did with the title, btw :)
