I finally decided to do this piece after I got an email from a fan who said that Black Widow was her favorite character and she wanted to see a princess that represented her.
Well, it's been a long time coming!
And if you haven't seen them, check out my other-

PRINCESS AVENGERS HERE!!



I did a previous version of Black Widow as the SULTAN from Aladdin simply to illustrate the bizarre gender politics of the Avengers (and to get otherwise reputable sites to post his troll face).
When it came to the revised version you see above I feel like I'm courting the logical inverse of that controversy.
An astute viewer will realize that when it comes to the two characters I always adopt the characteristics of the one with the least clothing. HULK ended up displaying quite a bit of chest. IRONMAN on the other hand showed off Jasmine's midriff.
The new Black Widow doesn't defy the trend, instead she adopts Ariel's revealing outfit with little more than a color change. Combined with the realistic style the effect is quite jarring.

It's a tricky design challenge, and every time that I make the decision to go revealing with her clothes its an attempt to capture the iconic essence of the character.
Snow White has to be transforming but I can't have her shirtless like her male counterpart, Jasmine needs to keep the shape of her original costume or she'd just have her head poking out of a suit, and now Blackwidow who is already a girl and a redhead is being turned in a girl readhead...
Hmmmmm....
I'd be interested to hear what you guys might have done.
 
Still, I'm pleased with the results. In my estimation she's one of the strongest looking yet.

I've always wondered if Black Widow was just forking around...

Genius idea! And being underwater, she can be a very sneaky spy... and doesn't even need a diving suit!

It's not a gun, it's a dinglehopper.

This is hilarious, and beautiful at the same time. The fork, it's the fork that does me in.

This crossover picture is so perfect. I'm not sure if I prefer the grim black tail or the hilarious fork, but they add up to an adventurous mood I adore.

Well, I'm hoping to see the movie first.
Elsa for Scarlet Witch and I'm not sure about Quicksilver.

Yeah I guess Elsa fits Wanda, having uncontrollable powers or not...I'm not sure if Anna fits Quicksilver though...Maybe Tinkerbell?
