Maleficent Bust by hooksnfangs Maleficent Bust by hooksnfangs
I was doodling around and was about to draw some Frozen characters... BUT I found myself lured into drawing Maleficent.

She's easily one of my top favorite Disney Villains because she's so sinister, has a solid design, turns into a dragon, and she was basically the ONLY character I found interesting in Sleeping Beauty. Seriously, I'm not sure what other Disney Villain comes close to being a bigger B!^(# than her.

Anyways, I did a simple bust drawing mainly because I wanted to try and make a shirt/tattoo design and use a limited color palette. I'd like to draw a full body pinup of her some time after I draw some other characters I have on my to-do list.

I can think of two villains who are better than (or worse than) Maleficent.

Chernabog from Fantasia (He is the Devil after all)

Claude Frollo from the Hunchback of Notre Dame

Really cool color scheme.  Love the thorn motif at the bottom.

I love that purple rose that holds it all together--and the redesign you gave her.

So far looking at trailers, it seems interesting how it's going to tell her side of the story. 
I find casting of Angelina Jolie to be a rather good choice considering how she seems to fit the role very nicely.

lol It's just me but I'm kinda put off when it comes to people making "darker" and "grittier" live films of my childhood stories. It's just because of how I didn't like Burton's Alice in Wonderland or Snow White with Bella. BUT... I'll keep my mind open to this film and I might watch it.

The original two-pronged hairdo remade for a modern age!

I've actually never seen Sleeping Beauty for whatever reason.  I like her design though, and this piece.  I was about to say, it reminds me of a tattoo I'd see on some rocker babe :p

Also, I like how its hair in the shape of horns instead of a hood.

You should check it out some time. Great animation and colors. But Maleficent is really the main reason you watch it lol.
I thought it'd be interesting to make those horns into some kind of wicked hairstyle
