The next in my Disney source material readthrough made me realize that, foxiness notwithstanding, Disney's Robin Hood actually comes pretty close to the original (much closer than Costner or Crowe... they may as well have been called by some other name, they were hardly Robin Hood).  This book was really fun to read (review here), and I really like how the drawing turned out too.  It's fun to take really famous characters that have been presented so many different ways in movies and books and try to give them a fresh look.

Snow White here.
Pinocchio here.
Denizens of Sleepy Hollow here.
Cinderella here.
Alice In Wonderland here.
Peter Pan here.
Sleeping Beauty here.
The Wart here.
Mowgli here.
Taran here.
Basil of Baker Street here.
Oliver here.
The Little Mermaid here.

I like to look at this picture while listening to the theme to Conquests of the Longbow.

Nice job!!! It's rare to see Robin Hood with a full beard.

Are you going to do "The Little Mermaid" next?

Oh yes, he definitely needs a nice shaggy beard!

And she is definitely coming up. :)

Haha, okay, so now Robin Hood has displaced Mowgli as your best so far in my opinion.

Oh, right on!  If this pattern keeps up I can only imagine your response to my future designs for Rapunzel and The Snow Queen!  Ha ha.

This is really clever! I like that, Disney un-Disneyfied. All the little detail and the muscles here are really well captured. :)

Thanks!  It's fun to try to fill in as many details as possible (while also trying not to make it too busy or overworked).
