Joffrey was hard to cast because there simply aren't enough kids in Disney that are sadistic enough. I thought about Kuzco because he's young and egotistical but the black hair put me off. Joffrey has to be blonde. So, I went with Arthur based on his looks and he becomes a king too, after all.
Arrogant, stubborn, power hungry, apathetic, greedy, self-centered
Aurora has already been done as Cersei but I liked the choice, given Tumblr's "Aurora a Queen B*tch" fascination. Aurora is a bit more ditzy than Cersei I think but, like Joff and Arthur, they look alike and are both royalty.
Both are adventurous, fighters in fairly high positions of power in their group and on the "wrong" side to start off with until they go on a journey with a woman, which they come out of as better, more compassionate people.
Myrcella and Tommen were difficult. I thought about Alice or Wendy for Myrcella. Wendy works with Michael because they're already siblings but Alice looks better as Myrcella. I don't really know a great deal about Myrcella since she's in Dorne for most of the show. Michael Darling is Tommen because both are sweet young boys, although I would have liked it if he was a bit older.
And I really wanted to put a kitten in there for him, so I went with Berlioz from The Aristocats.
Frollo is a hard man in a strong leadership position. He never accepts Quasimodo as his (adoptive) son and sees him as a monster. Much like Tywin and Tyrion.
Quasimodo is the only Disney character close enough in appearance to Tyrion. His relationship to Frollo (who I drew as Tywin) is similar as well. His "father" never wholly accepts him as his son and guilts him with the whole "at least I let you live" speech.
Esmerelda/Shae works with Quasi/Tyrion falling in love with her - but their relationship never properly working. And Frollo was infatuated with her as well as Tywin being interested in Shae (the bit at the end of Season 4).
Varys was difficult and I debated between Jafar and Hades. Hades was sassier, as is Varys in the show. They are powerful members of their worlds with influence. Hades, as the god of the Underworld, operates a huge network, necessary for the continuity of the world. He has his minions to provide him with information (however they are pretty unreliable). Hades does look dreadful in pastels, though.
I originally had Kaa from The Jungle Book as Littlefinger because Baelish is a slippery character. But, I didn't really like having animals and drawing Anna as Sansa made Hans make more sense. They are untrustworthy, deceptive, charismatic men with visions of grandeur and have knowledge on how to rule.
Anna is very positive and dreams of finding true love only to have her heart broken when she finds out that her suitor was just using her. Sansa goes through much more pain, I would say, than Anna, but both are still strong when they get knocked down.
Phillip and Robb are the epitome of the noble hero role. They both fall in love with a girl regardless of the already arranged marriage (although it works out much better for Phillip).
Queen Elinor and Lady Catelyn are both mothers whose primary concerns are their children whom they would do anything for. They are dignified and strong with a deep love and a bit of frustration for their children.
Shan Yu is a huge, tough, scary, warrior, if a bit more charismatic than the Hound.
Melody is rebellious, tough, and not as feminine as her world would like her to be (I haven't seen the movie in a long time so I can't remember much of what happens).
Fa Zhou and Ned are both fathers as well as aged warriors. They still have a strong sense of duty to their country - which they are ready to respond to when they are needed. They are loving and accepting of their children, especially the daughter who rejects social customs for women and instead wants to fight.
Bran and Mowgli both have a strong connection with animals. Bran is adventurous, brave, and loyal to his friends. Mowgli is a little more playful but shares the same adventurous nature and need to prove himself fearless.
Bagheera is caring and looks after Mowgli, like Osha cares for Bran. Osha is a wildling and Bagheera is literally a wild animal.
Baloo and Hodor, not really any similarities but both are big and carry the kid around on their back.
Li Shang as Jon Snow felt perfect. They said that Jon looked a lot like his father. Both are great leaders and fighters of noble birth.
As for the others, you have the fat gentle one, one stocky tough one, and the stringbean funny one.
I couldn't really think of anyone else suitable as Theon, so I picked Naveen. Naveen is a bit egotistical, laid back, somewhat arrogant and loves women.
Meg and Yara are both spunky, tough, independent women who don't need no man (not to say that they don't have relationships - because they do), and quick-witted.
This was another hard one. Hook, while being much more comical than Stannis, is a mostly grouchy leader of a few loyal followers. Hook and Stannis both have connections to an island; Neverland and Dragonstone.
Smee as Davos was sort of just because they are the right hand men of Hook/Stannis. Also, connections to the sea were important.
It is kind of amusing that Stannis should be the one missing a hand here when Davos is the one with the injury-created shorter fingers.
Both are boisterous, masculine, love hunting, not too keen on the intellectual side of life (reading/ruling), rude, and Robert was said to look... well, pretty much like Gaston in his younger years.
Eric and Renly are both kindhearted, friendly, a bit romantic and black of hair (an important Baratheon trait, I think).
Adam/Loras both have the symbol of the rose in their backgrounds.
Both are incredibly skilled craftsmen for their ages, didn't know their father, had a mother who worked in a tavern/inn, and end up going on a journey away from home.
This is kind of reversed where street rat Aladdin is Prince Oberyn with the princess Jasmine/bastard Ellaria.
Aladdin and Oberyn are charming, athletic, clever, brave - even if a little too much, and passionate.
Ellaria and Jasmine are seductive, confidant, beautiful, and free-spirited
Elsa and Daenerys have opposite abilities with ice and fire. Elsa is insecure and shy but grows stronger and more confident. Both are queens who are protective of their loved ones and people.
Kocoum is a strong, brave, serious warrior with little humor but loves the woman he is supposed to marry and is protective of her.
Flynn and Daario are both skilled, look out for themselves, handsome, humorous, cocky, and adventurous.
Both are brave, intelligent, protective, loyal, caring, and bear/gorilla, basically same thing
Bumbling, old and wise
I used to draw characters as ponies in the style of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, which I'd done numerous Disney and Game of Thrones characters as well as people from a large number of other TV shows and movies. But, I wanted to steer away from ponies and try drawing other things, like humans - which I've never been as good at.
The Disney style is one that I've always admired and wished I could draw like. I also love Game of Thrones as it contains a diverse range of relatable characters. I always love coming up with crossover ideas with characters for who should be who and Lord Tywin as Frollo was the first positive character cross I thought of.
I've tried to focus on male characters because many of the female characters and main Disney princesses have already been drawn (see DjeDjehuti).
