League of Queens by MattRhodesArt League of Queens by MattRhodesArt

Episode #205 - The League has tracked Maleficent (with Jafar and Trident in hand) to the Godmother's tomb. Belle has learned to control her transformations, Ariel now wields Excalibur, and Jasmine has finally been freed from her lamp. Can Cinderella lead them to victory before Maleficent acquires the final piece in her plan?

That Disneypocalypse image I made a while ago was fun. In a continued attempt to get back into the swing of doing personal work I thought it would be fun to revisit this idea. A few extra details:

-Cinderella's armor is glass because practicality is boring. 

-Ariel wears a large, purple octopus beak around her neck. 

-After being set free, Jasmine turned her lamp into a dagger in the hopes it could kill Jafar. 

-Maleficent bears the scars of being stabbed in the chest by an enchanted sword

Detailed shots of the characters are here: www.artstation.com/artwork/kaN…

Excellent job. I want to go to a comic book store and buy a comic book containing this story. How soon can you write, draw and publish it?

I'm guessing that this was inspired by "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen". Was it also inspired by Kingdom Hearts?

Wow!  This is an amazing idea.  And since Disney owns Marvel this would make a big selling comic I think.  It would appeal to w large audiance, young girls, boys, adults male and female.  awesome!  And it could be like Marvel's Fables.

Oh my god, this is so beautiful and creative! I love all the redesigns of all the Disney characters. I especially like Ariel and Cinderella's design. The coat over Cinderella's shoulders is a nice touch, makes her look very reverse prince charming, and the monster mermaid angle is really creative. Also a nod to Ursula with the octopus peak. I really like Belle's beast design with the torn yellow dress and Jasmine's genie design. I thought it was a snake's tail for a moment but the genie thing makes more since.
GREAT JOB!

Holy cow this is awesome! Your Disneypocalypse artwork remains one of my all time fave concepts, and this just takes that awesomeness and builds on it! I'd love to see a film or a game following these badass heroines as they kick villain ass from here to Ever After. Especially love Belle and Jasmine! The dagger-lamp is an awesome touch.

What are the chances Disney would accept a new IP with this concept? 
It would be such an amazing game

Dangit. 
Here's to hoping they decide to follow DC and try grimdark titles.
(Not hoping very much though)

amazing concept piece here.  very dark and edgy.   though, i think Ariel would be better off with Taran's magic sword (Black Cauldron) rather than the sword Arthur pulled (which, technically, wasn't even really excalibur).

I chipped away at it over the course of a week, a few hours every couple nights. I'd say 8-10 hours?
