PixArt Salutes The Pixar Heroine

We couldn’t be more excited about Brave hitting theaters on June 22. By now, we’ve all heard that this is the first Pixar film to feature a female lead. But it’s certainly not the first Pixar heroine. In fact, there’s been quite a few strong female personalities in just about all of Pixar’s films – including Up‘s Kevin. So in honor of Merida and company joining the Pixar family, we thought we’d salute the Pixar heroines in the best way we know how – fan art. All this month we will be featuring your artwork celebrating our favorite females from the Pixar Universe. As always, you guys and gals delivered. We can’t wait to show you all the great work. And keep it coming. We will be posting new art throughout the month of June.


In this post, we feature art from Abbie Foulk, Austin Hanna, Christian Michel, Dani Jones, Emmanual ‘Manu’ Kongolo, Hannah Foss, Donny Yankellow, Nichole ter Horst, Stephanie Dillon and Vencys Lao. Our thanks to theses talented artists for contributing!

    This art is great! Although I must say that while super cute, Boo is not really a “heroine”. She does have a strong personality, but she is more of a plot device than a character that drives the plot. Still great art though. :)
