Princess Avengers: BLACK WIDOW by Christopher-Stoll Princess Avengers: BLACK WIDOW by Christopher-Stoll
I know it's been a while, but here's the next image in my inexplicably popular series of Disney Royalty and Avenging Super Heroes!!! :D

Black Widow was undoubtedly a tough piece to pull together, you may recall that I posted a journal earlier this year to test the waters and let the fans decide the face of the newest Princess Avenger.

The feedback was overwhelming and unanimous, and the results certainly don't disappoint! :D
Balancing the disparate gender-elements was the biggest challenge, next was reconciling the comical elements of the Sultan's cartoon face with the realistic style I have chosen for the Princess Avengers! Earlier versions gave him a very realistic middle eastern appearance, but it wasn't immediately recognizable as Aladdin's Sultan... Plus I wasn't able to bring the same expression of sincerity and determination to him that you see above. I eventually relented, making Black Widow the most cartoonish PA so far!!

Please let me know what you think with a comment. I certainly put a whole lot of work into this, I hope that you all like it!! It's important to me that these Princess Avengers appeal to the fans, as you can tell I always do my best to take viewer preference into account when designing.

Okay. Okay. Okay. The real reason that I chose to switch genders on this one (at least in part) is to throw current fans for a loop, and to simply illustrate the bizarre gender politics of the Avengers. To have only one female member of a 6 person team is unusual, and to have her be so conventionally attractive is troubling. Don't get me wrong, I don't have a problem with Black Widow herself being attractive... but to me it seems like the only body types available for comic heroines is well... insanely unrealistic. With this piece I wanted to underline the lack women on the (actual) team as well as the unspoken comic-book creed that ostensibly strong women ALSO need to be smoking 10/10 babes. To this end I chose sultan, whose body type is at least as irregular as Black Widow's, although in a different way. A logical inverse to round out my Princess Avengers.

Your art is amazing!
What surprises/confuses me is that I thought the series was planned to be of princesses, and although I'm okay with it not being a princess, I would have thought that Ursula has a non-ideal body that could have been chosen for this. Still, your art is awesome! Good job!

As an artwork the craftsmanship is amazing.

The flow of turning Natasha Romanoff into the sultan turns her from being a part of the team to being a satirical mess. While I respect satire in all it's forms. This completely undermines the fact that she was just as important as the other heroes if not more throughout Phase 1.

1. First off she was there throughout shadowing Tony. Arguably she has just as much to do with him as Fury in recruitment
2. She was the one who actually went and recruited Banner.
3. She outsmarted Loki realizing that he had plans for unleashing The Hulk.
4. She Banner has his incident, she would stay with him trying to calm him down when he lost control. And though she was scared, she freed herself and outran The Hulk.
5. She brings Hawkeye back from the abyss that was his own mind.
6. Point blank she holds her own right next to the boys.
7. She is the one who closes the portal in The Avengers. Sure...Tony delivered a nuke, but without her the portal would have stayed open.

I'll say this, if you were going for a gender bend, Aladdin would have been a better choice. However, with the princesses Merida or Ariel would have worked very well and suit her character as well.

Last note. I said this in the beginning of the post, but your gallery is full of true skill with a stylus.
