Disney Heroes - John Smith by davidkawena Disney Heroes - John Smith by davidkawena
:megaphone: - now if full HQ version

"Hey, look. Is that Smith? - That's him, all right. The old sea dog. - Captain John Smith. I've heard some amazing stories about him..."

Yep, some would say he's Disney's most handsome hero ever, the one and only - Captain John Smith!

I was 12 when I first saw Pocahontas, though I never had a 'thing' for Smith (I was more into… ) I fell in love with his personality! True adventurer, always trying to do the right thing, funny at times, and "He has a good soul!".

I always wondered what would happened if Smith was to stay in Virginia, with Pocahontas, embracing the Native American life... History could have been very different!
So, when I knew it is time for him to be part of my Disney Heroes Collection I decided to give these thoughts a green light! This is how I ended up with this version of Smith with some Native inspired stuff... I also kept his compass on cause it was the one last thing that made Pocahontas see he is the right man for her, and I really loved that concept in the movie...

Hope you'll like this new addition to my collection! More Disney Heroes to come soon from the world of Pocahontas!!! (Hint Hint)

This is so bloody handsome and sexy! I just love him!
John Smith was my first crush, of al the disney prices, he's the only ture hero I really liked. He would die for his friends and his lovers. He told Thomas to run but he stayed behind to face the angry indians, he didn't even put up a fight when he was dragged away, didn't try to escape even when he knew he was going to die, he could even smile at a distressed Pocahontas and tell her he would never regret meeting her, and throwing himself in front of Pocahontas's father to block Ratcliffe's bullet. No other Disney Heros were even close to having the courage he had. I know this is not fair for other hero fans, but he is the bravest hero in my eyes.
That's why I felt so betrayed and disappointed at Pocahontas 2, which made him into and ugly flippant guy to show how handsome and steady John Rolfe was. I know Pocahontas married John Rolfe in the real history, but smearing John Smith like that and being abandoned by Pocahontas? That's too much for me.

Your definitely right! John Smith is the most handsome Disney prince/hero. He is so muscular and his face are so manly, the bone structure are so strong... like he can cut a tomato by using his jaw. I love this guy actually I have a crush on him when I was a kid... Anyway, you did it greatly love this so much!

I was 9 yrs. old when the film was released in 1995. I was just a kid back then and I thought that Beauty and the Beast, especially with Bell and Adam plus that enchanted rose still far exceeds everything for me. Still, there was just mystery behind Pocahontas that couldn't make me forget about it and it was the passionate intense love that Pocahontas and Smith had for each other. 

But you know DK, the first thing that got me in this pic was the fur. . My mind was screaming you put Meeko in there so I looked closely. Twice but not as much as Adam's :D Glad I was wrong.

I love you dear for making Smith sexy too! Thank you for making them all heroes look yummy half naked just for us ladies!!

HE KILLED MEEKO. Otherwise, excellent work. The shading is beautiful.
Chepseh Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2014
Judging from his outfit, Pocahontas' father might have already killed Meeko's family...! ;P

Will you do John Rolfe? I know he's not an official Disney hero or whatever since it's the sequel, but he counts somewhat, doesn't he?
