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)

HNNNGGGG! :iconimyaranaikaplz:
oh my god I am stunned. no words can adequately describe the beauty
He is just BEAUTIFUL. I also like how you have him standing- comfortably at ease and masculine.
Just amazing! Please draw a close up of his face!
aw fuck I can't even. what a STUD MUFFIN!! Great work!!
John Rolfe is missing :)
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.
Judging from his outfit, Pocahontas' father might have already killed Meeko's family...! ;P

John Smith was always my favorite, one of my first crushes as a kid. Lovely job!
