maleficent..yeah cuz i heard of the movie by nebezial maleficent..yeah cuz i heard of the movie by nebezial
one of if not the best villain for me, so i just found out a movie is being made...with angelina jolie. personally im not a jolie fan, but she can act so imma give ti a benefit of a doubt, but somehow maleficent just works perfectly with thinner malicious lips XD


aanyways so it hit me like a ton of bricks, for all the love i got for the character , i never tried to draw her so i went with a fun quick reinterpretation.

this took about 45 minutes, thats the advantage of digital inking, you get to make some cool brushes too

So I saw this piece maybe a year ago and it completely inspired me.  I designed a Maleficent cosplay loosely based on this.  Mostly i was inspired by the shape and texture of the horns and the armor (which I hope to attempt to make someday...) but in my cosplay I still wanted to keep elements of the cartoon version.  I hope you don't mind that I used your work for inspiration for my own work!!  I love directing people to your page because your work is fantastic.  This image is still the background on my personal computer because it is just so freaking awesome and inspiring.  Here's a link to one of the pictures of my cosplay.  If you get a chance to check it out, I'd be honored!  www.facebook.com/NeverAfterCos…

The dragon does not look like that of the film, but I like your Maleficient.

Your art is amazing. The movie "Maleficent" 2014 is an atrocity.

How? I thought it was nice to see why Aurora was cursed. Sleeping Beauty offered no other explanation than simply because Maleficent can do it.

Maleficent in dictionary: That has a bad temper; what is bad; evil.
Causing harm to someone; which tends to be harmful; maleficent
(Etm Latin:. Mallevolus / malivolus.a.um)

Then Stefan was equally bad if not worse since cutting off Maleficents wings is compared to rape.

This is a stupid Disney invention. It was best to keep as intrinsically evil Maleficent. The mystery was lost and everything has become stupid. But I respect your opinion. If you liked the movie, good for you.

Just found this image, and I must say she pulled off Maleficent perfectly, even with those lips.  She was just so wonderful at the being EVIL!  Had to save this image!

If you do go and see it, I recommend it. Ironically drawing a realistic "high polished" version of Jolie's Maleficent seems right up your alley. If you already have....would you mind doing a polished one? It's a miniscule request seeing as you're swamped in work and Sunstone blah blah blah. I'M JUST A FAN LEAVE ME ALONE *cries in a corner*

You know Angelina Jolie is only a monkey in front of a camera right? Regardless of her ability to act (saw the movie btw, not commenting what I thought) she's not making the movie. She's performing from the script she was given. Sorry, I just can't stand it when people cite the actors like they're the ones in charge of making the thing.

never said anything of the sort. just always liked her look in the cartoon, those thin and wonderfully expressive lips and the smile she had was kinda carved in my memory. just a personal preference nothing more nothing less :)

ironically to your comment, i read quite a few reviews that actually claim that she is the only thing holding the movie together XD

It's alright. Don't go into the movie expecting much relation to the original film (was it 1950 some odd?). It's a remix of that story and essentially a parallel universe type deal like they do in comics all the time. Though I have been thinking of ways to apply the very basic idea (Maleficent as a fairy who lost her wings) to the original Maleficent.

Hm, kindred spirit. I'm much the same. I go into a movie without any expectations besides the expectation of having fun (and hey, let's face it, even if you end up not liking a movie it can still be made fun, just MST3K it).

In the original story Maleficent transforms into a raven or dragon what she wants but in the new case of a man she transforms and in this film she and he are anti hero.

I absolutely LOVE THIS.  I don't know where to begin-  I love the redesign you did.  Her horns are shorter and look sturdier, more suited to combat.  Her staff is taller, and the shape matches her horns elegantly.  Her outfit has a darker feel to it, but still maintains the same regal appearance.  And I haven't even gotten to the dragon!

You rock, keep up the awesome work!

i know as soon as i heard about Jolie becoming the live action Maleficent, i watched SB again (for the first time since i was like 8) and i knew "oh yeah, this is total Jolie material; if anyone can pull it off, it'll be her". and so far that looks to be true =)
