Another step by step! From sketch to final! I really enjoyed drawing Jack, he’s a fun character!
Jack Skellington, The Pumpkin King
Backstory: “Jack’s world was raided by Maleficent’s forces. At first, he welcomed them with open arms, as he always appreciated a good scare. However, it soon dawned on him that her forces meant harm, rather than just scares. Jack soon was able to fight them off using his saber. Sensing something was up, he decided to depart Halloweentown and search for answers himself. Jack uses fencing to keep foes at bay and large, sweeping deadly swipes to finish off opponents.”
Jack was always one of my favorite characters and since it’s October I thought it would be fun to draw him! I redrew his outfit to make him look more bulky and weighted and added some angularity to his skull as opposed to his original round one.
Ariel, The Sorceress of the Sea
Backstory: “In the years after the events of her two films, Ariel had taken up her father’s throne and rules Atlantica with Eric. She possesses a trident capable of changing the weather and sea currents. She duals as mage and support, her offensive magic can summon fearsome winds and lightning strikes, while she can also summon dense fog and stat debuffs on her enemies.”
Ariel is awesome, hands down. I tried to reinvent my old redesign of her with a more sleek design and more armored. I wanted a cross between an Aquaman suit and a mermaid Atlantean warrior and I hope I achieved that here.
So I decided to put these side by side so I can really see how much I have changed over the past 2 years. I’d like to think I have changed my style/colors a lot.
What do you guys think?
So I’ve been MIA for a month (art-wise) since Ive been busy with my illustration job and grad school and Ive been in a huge art rut/block. So to get out of it I have decided to redraw some of my old Disney heroes to my current new style! And to avoid confusion I’ve decided to name this new/redesign project Disney Champions!
Backstory: “Pocahontas was summoned by Grandmother Willow who had sensed a dark imbalance in the universe and sent Pocahontas directly into Wonderland to confront Alice and after speaking to her, Pocahontas decided to stay and help the group. Pocahontas uses a bow and arrow and has magnificent aim. In addition to this she is the master of stealth and is able to control the wind to some extent. She is unable to propel flight, but is capable of gliding and jumping great distances.”
Notes: I thought I’d kick off my Disney Champions project with the one and only, Pocahontas!
Pocahontas has always been kickass. I mean she jumped off a cliff and probably should have died when she hit that water but whatever. I thought it’d be cool to make her a rogue/archer!Check out my other Disney art here: [LINK]
