I was always sad when Maleficent died in Sleeping Beauty.... because she looked so COOL as a dragon. If she died in her normal design I wouldn't have been chocked up about as a kid. Thanks Disney. 

This art is amazing by the way.

THANKS!  Yeah, I actually never saw the film until I was an adult, because I thought it was boring princess stuff and as an adult I was like "I MISSED ALL OF THIS!??!"

I feel like some of the purples could have a little more darkness to them. On the belly scute, the lines could be a wee darker, and maybe the sky  could have a darker shade that only shows along the very top?  the gradient seems to be really textured down low and then the top area feels a bit empty without anything to balance the rich shape/contrast and textures below.  Perhaps some ominous looking clouds could round things out too.

I LOVE THIS PIECE, I will have to see about nabbing prints ;D  Mally's my fav lady dragon of all time!

If you ever decide to do any cards of this piece or even just prints I would love to get one. My stepmother love Maleficent in her dragonyness and this is such a great depiction of her. :D

I plan on making 9x12" prints and 8x10" which will be available on Etsy!

Just shoot me a message if you'd like to pre-order one on either Etsy or through gmail.

Thank you!

There are definitely a few noticeable differences which are more Kiki touches, but I tried to keep mostly true to her design!

Haha I actually did notice that, but overall it stays true the original design with a mix of your own flavor!! Very Nicely done :D

Nowadays she's a kind of refreshing alternative to the angsty, misunderstood or cuddly and actually innocent dragons you seem to encounter a lot more often.

Such a big stomach, too... not a greyhound-like body at all, which is the model most dragon artists seem to follow. I guess she needed room inside her for lots of victims...

The greyhound-like body people give dragons doesn't really make much sense anatomically speaking.  I mean, yeah, you can design dragons however you like, but VERY few animals, and virtually no predators, have a body type like that. (cheetahs being the real exception, and they're built to run.)
I design all my dragons like big cats.  They like to sleep a lot, can be assholes, and are flexible crazy hunters.

To be fair, I like the idea of "actually pleasant" dragons, and have a ton of dragon stories I've been working on, but I treat them more neutral.  Some are good, some are bad, but tey are still dragons, and just want to sun a little. :p  But Maleficent is fantastic because she's just a pile of rage and death.
