Hercules, Hercules!


Lauren got Hercules on DVD for our berfday, and I finally watched it, nearly 10 years after its release. I actually really enjoyed it. I particularly loved some of the designs! They were infused with the style of Gerald Scarfe, which I think was a really interesting choice on Disney's part.

Young Herc here was animated by Randy Haycock, who also did an amazing job with Clayton in Disney's Tarzan. I love what this guy does with body language.

Anyway, on to the point: I drawed him! I don't often draw men, so he's probably a little hippy. It's something I really need to work on in the future. Just a WIP for the moment. Any crits are welcome :D

UPDATE: Okay, so I've inked and colored him now! The tree still needs to be painted, and the background is still a MAJOR work in progress. BGs are not my strong point, but I need to get away from the "figure floating on a white page" thing that permeates most of my work. Ah, Greece! You can just smell the olive trees :> Incidentally I have no idea why he's carrying a tree around.
