So I did a minimalist version of frollo awhile back and I REALLY liked how that was looking. So I got inspired to do a minimalist version of Maleficent today :D After it got done I realized it seemed PRETTY DANG similar to the poster for Wicked :3 But Maleficent came before Elphaba got her name and her flight, so I guess she's the original bad A green witch ;)

EDIT: I went back and fixed her left shoulder because it was just barely a flat line instead of a point (I'm OCD like that). Wow you guys seem to really like this one :O Thanks for all the comments and favs everyone :D

EDIT: Some more minor geometrical corrections. I went ahead and changed the title from "The Original Wicked" to the one you see now because I'm thinking of making a series out of this now that I've got two minimal Disney villains up here.

I found a picture of a few of your minimal art un-credited in the Maleficent tag of tumblr. They had mashed up a few of them into one picture. I've reblogged and correctly sourced you, but I feel it a good idea to tell you that you're ending up on tumblr un-credited.
To fix that, I would suggest a tumblr account of your own, where you officially post these, and providing a link to those posts in the descriptions here. A friend of mine does that.

Thanks for telling me, I have seen a few of my minimals floating around there every now and then. I do have an art blog that I started, I just haven't committed to using it yet, I haven't gotten to a consistent place creatively so I don't want to throw it all out there and forget about it. It's a good idea though, I'll probably look into it in the summer :)

Well...it's officially the summer, did you look into it?

Haha, I appreciate your concern, but no I didn't really look into it. I've been very inactive on my deviant art lately, so I kind of let things go for a while. I do already have an Arnumdrusk tumblr blog out there that I created for a school assignment, so eventually yeah I'll transfer all of this over I think. That'll be fun.

With only four colors and a few geometric shapes, the character is instantly recognizable. Awesome job!

Maleficent is one cool chick/witch lol, I like this !

ArnumdruskStudent General Artist
Oh yeah, she's pretty much the best Disney villain out there :) I think I'm going to do a series of these now (since I did one for Frollo first). :D
Valdo-Cruz's avatar
yeah, i think so too, *flashback: to when Pete and Maleficent summoned all the heartless to fight off the nobodies*

...anywho, I like your minimalist pieces ^^

lol Kingdom Hearts reference :D Speaking of, have you gotten your hands on Birth by Sleep yet?????

Well thanks :) I've kind of been gravitating towards minimalism for awhile, mostly because it looks neat and isn't all that complicated to do :iconsweatplz:
