Everything's got its price by DeathMystery Everything's got its price by DeathMystery
Everything's got its price!.. Yes-s-s, a price!

Mwahaha, no-one expected the Spanish Inquisition! :mwahaha: But still, but still... :D That's my entry for the :icondisney-club: 15th contest. :) If I've got it right, there were indeed no entries with this Big Boo Guy, which IS odd, Mo deserves more attention. :O_o: He was the sweet dream of my whole childhood, so... XD I bet I'm not the only one, seriously, guys! :D

Oh well, let's start it over again. For those who don't know them - that's Mozenrath and Shirokko from the Disney's Aladdin Series. I do think, Mo is one of the best (well, for me, actually The Best))), most beautiful and well designed villains. And, not to forget, he's a necromancer, probably the only one Disney ever created (?), so my choice was pretty clear. And, ofc, I'm gonna share my inspiration with you. If you like this character as much as I do, it's an absolute MUST to know this song, it's so matching. :love: Really shame it's German, so I fear the majority won't get the message. :( [link]

The idea of drawing this picture was lingering around for quite some time... I was too lazy to do it, actually. There was another reason for me to draw it, but it's not as important. So, I was browsing through Disney clubs to (eventually) find some inspiration and God blessed me with this contest: :love: Tbh (secret!) it's my 1st one on DA. Yes, really. Wish me some luck! :D Unfortunately I had like 5 days to the deadline, so I decided to stay rather plain with the BG. Otherwise it might have taken like few weeks to finish, like any other of my drawings.

Concerning Mo himself... Ah, don't ask me why the hell does he have longer hair. Those curls are sweet! :D I can still remember when I've seen him for the 1st time as a child I really thought he has got long hair cuz of this headdress. Well, I've soon noticed, maybe not, but the impression remained for my whole life long. Another reason... Well, short-haired he'd look like Aladdin's twin or something... It's a big "Ewww!" from my side. :no:

The doggie is a real Disney character as well, he's called Shirokko, he's a wind jackal and he did appear in one of the episodes. I can't remember the name anymore, sorry. I redesigned him slightly, as I thought, the real design was way too plain. Still, I had to find a compromise and let it remain original Shirokko and not just some "sparkle wolf thingie". I didn't really want to draw Xerxes, I don't like that ugly thing. I do think, Shi would make a 1000 times better familiar than some flying worm. :O_o:

The scene... Oh well, I was inspired by this scene in one of the episodes: [link] It was really creepy to see, Mo has got the same (!) hour-glass my necromancer OC has got too... O_o" The last time I've seen this episode was like 10 years ago (at least), so there was no way to remember such details. So I took it as a sign. :D

Oh well, I could add much more about this drawing, it was a huge fun painting it, as well as all of the lols and rofls my bro added while I was working on it... He and my friends know me as a badass fantasy artist, so they pretty much freaked out seeing me playing around with Disney characters. :D And yes, it was a huge fun to do, but I'll leave it here, not gonna torture you anymore. Well, hm, probably not. Enjoy!

Media: You know the deal. Acrylics, watercolors, pastel, pencils.

Mozenrath isn't the only necromancer now, you've got the Voodoo guy from Princess and the Frog, and "friends from the Other Side" sounds suspiciously like a bunch of spirits and ghosts to me.

Shame that this didn't win the competition, it's still good, and respect for mixed media stuff! I think one of the problems with this piece was the confusing lighting. It seemed to come from the wolf and sand-clock (?) at the same time, along with another possibly hidden one from the outside of the canvas that lit up Mo's pants. If that part was darkened, and the lightin more well defined, it would've looked a LOT better :D and frankly, I don't mind his hair looking like that. =P

Hehe, voodoo =/= necromagic. :D The both schools has got completely different roots. The ghosts weren't ghosts, but according to voodoo mythology, shadows. But this wasn't explained in the movie itself. The guys who studied voodoo religions know it tho :)

Yap, shame I didn't win, weeeep! :cry: But well, anyways, I still love this drawing. The light is coming from several directions, indeed. :D I love it this way. That's something common for all of my drawings.

Longhair-boys for the win!! <3

Right, but maybe it's just me, anything concerning the dead, or apparitions from the other side fall under the umbrella of necromancer, so it includes Shamanism as well. But I still respect the fact that they're all different studies.

Sure, I thought it would be something you could take note of, I mean, sometimes when paintings have only one lighting it causes a really "dramatic" look, if you will. Such as the face being lit up with only the candle, or a silhouette where the light is only behind them. You should check it out and experiment around :D

FTW indeed! :D

Mozenrath is indeed one of the coolest Disney villains ever, and like the flying serpent Malcho, has the potential to do some VERY serious damage if the show wasn't all about the hero winning. Like in the (Sadly canceled I believe) Gargoyles, the hero (Goliath) is often shown to be arrogant, selfish, and acting on impulse - the polar opposite of most glorified heroes of other disney shows airing at the time. But thats off topic.

Seeing this piece of art makes me realize that if the method of forging a Philospher's Stone was the same as in FMA, Mozenrath wouldn't hesitate a second to do it and kill a bunch of people.

...

Wat's wrong with Disney characters? I mean, the classical ones not the Bebas and Perp ones, but the true classics like these and Hercules? They are in Kingdom Hearts!! D:

Sorry for delay with answering, I wasn't around all too much :)
1st of all I'm really glad to hear you stopped by and yes, I agree, that this big Boo Guy has got some nice potential. But well, Disney series are kinda fairy tales, so there is no way a villain would ever win. Sad but truth :)

Not entirely true - in the Gargoyles series the heroes didn't always win their battles, in fact they lost most of them or fought to a draw. As of late in the first series the two main villains (Demona and Macbeth) the heroes never won against, either fled or fought to a draw.

nnayrusavatar has the entire series up on YouTube, And as it has been for several years I doubt Disney is gonna do anything about it. Actually, the series founder might actually be the same person, or perhaps even endorsing it as he was quite angry at Disney for rewriting a bunch of the script in the season after the last few episodes and left. All "officially offical" work is in comic form now.
Episode one can be seen here: [link]

A lot of great stuff, the hero isn't a glorious individual who never thinks only of himself and never makes mistakes... Not at all. And there are plenty of lessons throughout the series. One episode even shows why you don't play with guns (And why you never leave a loaded one laying around). No one dies that episode, but one of the main protagonists gets left in the hopsital with a near-fatal injury when one of the other protagonists thought it'd be cool to play with it after watching a bunch of Old West films. DIsney removed the tiny bit of blood on the guy's hands after he left her at the hospital, though.

Also the highest rated comment?

20 years ago, awesomeness and intelligence ruled.

It was a time of greatness, it was a world of enjoyment.

It was the age of the 90's.

Great cartoons in the morning, greater cartoons by night. They were betrayed by the channels we once called friends, forced to endure unintelligent drivel for 20 years.

Now they are on YouTube.

The era of stupidity has ended.

And they broadcast again!

They are defenders of quality kid's shows.

They are Gargoyles!
