Princesses Playing DnD by madam-marla Princesses Playing DnD by madam-marla
I think every princess is a _heroine_ first and foremost :)
I have thoughts for each of these girls and how they'd behave around the table, so feel free to discuss. ^^ Enjoy!

PS - Elsa and Anna aren't included cause I started this piece last year, and never got around to shading it until now :)

Small FAQ:
Why is Snow White DM?
I thought it'd be fun, because she had most experience in the biz, and she prooved to be a great coordinator in her movie. The dwarves listened to her, and she was firm, but kind. I know, I know, she's not most people's favorite, but I like putting her in charge because she's ofter super underestimated, and she deserves some love. Sometimes the shiest people can surprise you when they tap into their creativity. :)
Why isn't Kida/Meg/Esmeralda/Elsa/Leia/[Insert Princess Here] included?
I made this to mock the Disney princess lineup, which resulted in me only using the "official" princesses. It also resulted in a really really big adventuring party, which brings me to:
TOO MANY PEOPLE AT THE TABLE!!! A round would take forever!
HAHA I KNOW, right? :D But I figure since this is parody, and the poor girls don't REALLY need to suffer to wait for their turn, it's fine :P I just wanted to include all the girls who get the princess label though, but personally, I don't like playing DnD in adventuring groups larger than 5, because even if the DM CAN sometimes handle huge groups, it becomes more tiring for everyone.
What classes would they be?
Definitely hardest question to answer, cause the class you pick doesn't necessarily fit your personality, but your acting ambition, fascination, curiosity and momentary fancy. Any of them would be barbarians or monks or druids. I do think that people new to DnD often rp their personal favorite classes, but later on, people branch out and play ANYTHING, and enjoy changing the character masks they wear considerably :)

So let's see:

Snow White: Control freak GM. 

Ariel: The one who keeps everything she finds until she's so over-encumbered she can't move.

Mulan: The Tank

Jasmine: The one who argues with the GM about everything. (Doesn't like authority)

Cinderella: The One keeping everything neat and Tidy.

Pocahontas: The one with the most ridiculously complex,  broken, min-maxed character who drives the GM insane.

Rapunzel: The one who multi-classes as a Healer/Bard. (Get it?)

Tiana: Brought the snacks!

Bell: The role player who never breaks character and gets on everyone's nerves.

Merida: The one who just want's to kill something to get xp to buy a better bow, to kill something else with, to get more xp...

Aurora: Bored out of her mind. She falls asleep.

^This is great XD

I could do more:

Mulan is the one who has to think up a plan for everything.

Merida is the one who rushes in to battle without thinking at all.

Rapunzel is the obsessed gaming nerd who does nothing but play this game (She doesn't get out of the house.)

Let's see...
If Snow White weren't DMing, she'd be a druid, Merida would be a ranger/rogue, Mulan would be a monk/fighter, Pocahontas would also be a druid, Belle would probably be a wizard... and that's all I got.

If you like D&D, you should try Card Hunter on STEAM or Kongregate.

I have no idea what DND is.
madam-marla Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2015   Digital Artist
it's a role-playing game :) people gather around a table, they make fantasy characters which they roleplay, and a dungeon master or game master, presents them with the setting for their adventures and gives them the consequences of their actions in the game :)

Ariel is totally into it.

I love how some of the princesses are wearing their casual attire.
Snow White as the leader of DnD? Interesting. I would have thought Merida or Mulan, but I love Snow even more.
Aurora looks exhausted. Hope she stays awake!
WanderSong Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2015
I love how you made Snow White the game master. Plus, I agree that she's totally underestimated. I think a lot of people overlook her assertive, confident side which is a real shame. She may have had a shy moment or two but I don't think that made her a particularly shy person. She just felt shy in situations that a lot of girls would have felt shy in. I thought her reactions were normal.(I hate how people pick on Snow for being a fraidy cat just because of that scary forest scene. How would they feel about running into a dark, creepy forest right after learning that someone wanted to kill them? Seriously, people can be so ignorant.) Plus, even though her parents were gone and she was forced to work as a servant for the evil queen, Snow certainly proved herself worthy of giving orders as a princess when she told the dwarves to go wash up for supper. So, even though her character may seem underdeveloped nowadays, I'm sure she's stronger than she's given credit for. And people should certainly respect her for her good heart and kindness. 
And this is just my opinion but I think Aurora was the shyest princess, not Snow White. Aurora was raised in the woods and told not to speak to strangers which was why she was naturally startled when she first met her prince.(She wasn't dressed in rags like Snow was but she did take just a little bit longer to warm up to Phillip.) Also, after finding out she was a princess, Aurora kept quiet on the way back to the castle. So, yeah, I think Snow White is a bit more extroverted. But again, just my opinion.
Sorry if my comment was too long. Just felt like speaking my mind I guess. ^^;
All and all, great pic! :thumbsup:

Aw this was a fun read. I generally love reading people's opinions, but I also really agree with you! I think Snow White is kind of given a bad rep due to how she was modeled by certain actresses at the time. I guess she seems alien to us nowadays, when we're used to a different set of values and such. But it's a shame to consider her a weak character, and I'd defend her tooth and nail TBH. How can anybody say she's weak, when she can live a servant's life, but has the power to sing with joy and optimism despite it? When she can be a surrogate mother for 7 dwarves?... And we have to remember she does all this while being the youngest princess too!

I think there's something really charming about her in general.. And yeah, from the POV of dungeons and dragons, you don't always have to super assertive to entertain your friends as game master. I think Snow White would have an interesting imagination, and deliver some intriguing adventures :)

Ha ha, this is great! I love the subtle bits like Belle getting really into reading the manual and Aurora looking ready to fall asleep. And I can just picture Mushu popping up and whispering to Mulan about how *real* dragons totally don't do what Snow described, I mean really.
buslimpan Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2015  Hobbyist Writer
They look really great! And Snow White fits perfectly as the DM!
Arachnid95 Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2015  Student General Artist
Snow: Upon entering the room, you encounter an ancient red dragon, fiercely guarding the entrance to the next room!
Mulan: That's you, Mushu.
Mushu: Man, I ain't never gonna love this one down... A'ight, gimme that stupid die so I can roll for initiative, whatever that means...

Nice pic. Two things though: Merida would totally be GM, or she'd be playing Rolemaster.

slyfer3k Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2014
was about to say i wonder why belle wouldn't have been the DM but then i read the description and it makes sense and she looks so awesome at it, shes got that little flare in her eyes that make her perfect for it and i love how belle is reading the rules ready for her turn as DM  

Merida - Ranger
Aurora - Sage
Belle - White Mage
Taina - Warrior (Single Sword + shield)
Rapunzel - Thief
Pocahontas - Warrior (Two handed Sword)
Cinderella - Black Mage
Jasmine - Assassin
Mulan - Warrior/Mage
Ariel - Archer

never played DND but im sure those classes would be proper for it based on MMO's i play 
madam-marla Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2014   Digital Artist

Best guesswork-thus-far, to be honest :)

And I'm so glad you read the description. It means a lot to me!!! :)
