My Prince: Part 1

In doing research for my hand painted shoes, I stumbled across a few modernized versions of the Disney Princesses. How have I not seen this before??? The one to the left, by Viria13, is one example. Aren't they awesome? I don't know which one is my favorite. You can find a few more versions here. I loved all of the creations, but eventually had one question. Where are the Disney Princes? 

Well, I recently bought my first graphic tablet.  Although I'm very familiar with graphic programs, I've never even held a graphic pen before!  Drawing a modernized Disney Prince the perfect time to test it.  I chose Aladdin as my first attempt for a few reasons: I love Scheherazade where his story is told, I adored Disney's version of it and its gorgeous characters, and a guy is the star, which I thought was rare for a Disney film. Anyway, here's what I came up with.

Its not bad for a first attempt, but I definitely see where it can be improved. I like the expression on his face. He looks like a nice guy with a mischievous side. The saggy pants are obvious but I thought it appropriate, and I kept a similar color palette. What do you think?
