Maleficent, my all time favorite Disney villain! Worked on this off and on for a while but feeling its done even though originally I wanted to do more to it. I mostly cheeped out on the horns, and crown which were originally going to be more intense with detail. however sense they are not the focal I left them softer.

Main references were actually from Enchanted, which to be is amusing because I'm sure the villain in that film was based off of the queen from snow white and Maleficent :p

Painted and sketched in Photoshop
SS fire brushes used for the flames

Let me know if the image is suppper dark...its suppose to be dark but looks okay on my screen. I just don't want it blacked out T_T

I love the textures and colors on this! Absolutely love it! As well as how the values on her face make it pop out and give her that sculpted, thin look she's supposed to have.

WOAH, thank you for uploading this! I love Maleficent and this is not only the best image of her I've ever seen, but it's the best 'refined' image I've ever seen too!

most delightfully evil villain of all time IMO ..thats right, i said Villain. as in, covering both male and female baddies. Her minions may be stupid, but she is just down right evil and spiteful, i LOVE it

plus she turns into a fricken dragon by "the powers of Hell"
