I try to make the children a combination of both parents and all of the Disney characters are cute. I guess it makes them look fake, though, huh?
Anyway, thanks for the compliment, although I don't think I could ever make them cuter. Disney rules the cute-ness scale...while also maintaining the kick-butt scale. Tricky business, but it works for them. Thanks for the comment!
First off, I'd like to warn that this reply will contain SPOILERS to those who have not seen the movies Atlantis: the Lost Empire and Atlantis II: Milo's Return!
Well, I created a whole series of these pics (as I'm sure you've noticed by now ) and on the left I show the original princess/heroine and her title as stated in the Disney movie and on the right I show their daughter and what I represent them as.
Ultimately, Kida is a queen, as proved by the movie, but not until the very end of the film. Also, I didn't want Kida and Miralash to look too alike, like the other Disney princesses in my collection. I just imagine Kida to wear her plain clothes, warrior type of get-up a lot more than I picture her as reigning Queen.
I probably should have made Kida a queen, but I really liked Atlantis 2: Milo's Return, in which she worries about ruling her people in the best way possible, as they haven't been on the surface in so many years. My idea is that since Miralash was born as the daughter of an Atlantean and a surface-dweller, she would understand both her father's experiences on the surface (from hearing about it and seeing it periodically throughout her childhood and formative years) and also being raised learning the traditions of her Atlantean ancestors. She would be raised to understand both worlds and, thus, with her mother's go-getter attitude and her father's deduction and reasoning skills (and the born leader that she is), quickly takes well to over-seeing the empire and allowing her mother and father to explore and learn more about the world around them as she rules, which has been her dream since she was a child.
I'm not sure if I answered your question correctly, though. Sorry.
I really recommend watching the sequel. I'm sure you can find it on Amazon.com, or at Goodwill or something. (I like to hit garage sales, Goodwill and auctions and flea markets. Another person's castaway books and movies are my treasures! ).
