Pocahontas In Pocahontas (1995) (2/25)


It seems impossible to talk about Disney and not mention Glen Keane. Just like many other famous characters, Pocahontas's portrayal was also the work of Keane. What's interesting is that while creating this persona, the artist faced a rather difficult task, he was asked by Jeffrey Katzenberg to create "the most idealized and finest woman ever made." To complete this request Keane took inspiration from such women as Filipino model Dyna Taylor, Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, he also used a 1620 depiction of Pocahontas from a history book, though he later explained that she was "not exactly a candidate for People's 'Most Beautiful' issue." It took 55 animators to create the final Pocahontas.
