Queen's Crown - Tiana by AerianR Queen's Crown - Tiana by AerianR
And here's Tiana of the Queen's Crown image [link]

Tiana would be fast, agile, and a powerful hitter. She'd probably kick more often than swing, or at least have a good repertoire of both types of moves. I think she'd also throw her weapon, but would have to retrieve it before using it again.

So Tiana's outfit came to me easily enough, but thinking of a weapon for her was tough. She was another last minute addition like Giselle (I added Giselle because I wanted to add Tiana and needed to make it even, which is why I struggled with both of their weapons).
I wanted her to have a nature-like weapon based on something she might use as a frog. I thought of a whip, but preferred that for Jane, and then thought of a pole which was already taken by Pocahontas. So I ended up doing something different with her. Something that would make her agile and tough. You can't see it, but she has two of these little hand-axes. They're called Nzappas.

for her weapon, i don't think that she'd have to worry about retrieving it if she threw it like a boomerang, because it looks like one.

I love this pic and I think the girls who have the best chance at winning are Tiana, Mulan, Pocahontas, Rapunzel and Kida. Are you going to make a real game from this or is this just for fun? Also Tiana is my Favorest Princess (I know that's not a word), while everyone else are my Favorite Princesses. The girls with long hair will get their hair cut. Oh before I forget if you can't make a videogame from this you should make a comic (I would hope Tiana will be first, Pocahontas second, Kida and Rapunzel tie for third:))!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:)

You know her little axes could be boomerang axes, so she doesn't have to run for them:)

TIANA!!! Great freakin' job! Tiana looks stunning and she's quite possibly the most gorgeous gal you've done. The outfit isn't a drastic departure but it's reworked to be more feasible in your game. I love how cute she looks. Shortening princess dresses can often have a slutty effect but you completely side-stepped that here by making Tiana look adorable. And those shoes are so great! I could gush endlessly about this one. I love the simple pose, the soft colours... oh! Everything's just fabulous!

Nice choice on the weapon. I feel it would work for her character. It's small enough that it feels "right". It looks a little more natural and its aesthetic blends in nicely with Tiana's. Her combat style seems very unique and I imagine you chose her to have an emphasis on kicks because of her time as a frog, right? :P Heh. Clever.

Thank you x3 I tried and tried to come up with something for her but nothing was working too well aside from this. I loved drawing her because it was the first time I've tried a pose like that, so it made her really interesting to me.

Now that I've been watching it, I agree that it works. It's almost like a butcher knife, and had I paid attention to the movie I'd have probably given her that instead. But now I know she'd wield that axe REALLY well.
That's right. xD

The color pallet is wonderfully done and her stance is sexy, yet threatening. :)
