God I love dagged sleeves. Almost as much as I love slashed ones. I just want to dag and slash everything I can get my hands on.
I’ve wanted Maleficent to be the first villain in the series for a while now, ever since I made the mental leap between Maleficent’s horns and 15th century horned hennins. The time period works out pretty well, actually, since I wanted her to look a little more dated than Aurora’s 1480’s getup- both houppelandes and horned hennins were all the rage during the early- to mid-1400’s, and they make for pretty good analogues to her official costuming. Sexy stuff.
This proves more than any of the previous pieces that these are adaptations, not improvements. I mean, look at the original Maleficent design- how does one improve on PERFECTION
There’s this one scene in the book, that didn’t make it into the movie and it’s a huge shame, because it’s a fanservice straight from the author:
After that they stopped pleading. Then they took off their clothes and bathed in the river, which was shallow and clear and stony at the ford. When they had dried in the sun, which was now strong and warm, they were refreshed, if still sore and a little hungry.

So I tried to at least make a pic of it. I’m sorry, I suck at colours, composition, perspective and having more than two characters on a pic. u__u
And if I ever mention anything even vaguely resembling something along the lines of “I want to make a huge, multi-character and colourful pic with full background!”, feel free to kick me in the head.
Is anyone else reminded of that one scene from Mulan
