Maleficent: The Field by nicholaskole Maleficent: The Field by nicholaskole
Hello beautiful deeevs!
Today I started to hear that pre-orders have been coming in and the book has begun to pop up in stores- SO EXCITING! So I think I am in the clear to start posting some art from the Disney project I had been working on for a few wonderful months this autumn.
Before it got started, I needed to do some preliminary illustrations to demonstrate to them what the book might look like in my style. The result was this- which I got to kind of throw my heart into a little. My favorite time of day <3

Once this was settled, we were off to the races! If you'd like to see a little more, as well as some sketches- pop over here: nicholaskole.tumblr.com/post/8…

And if you'd like to order the book, it's available here: www.amazon.com/The-Curse-Malef…

You did this book? The reason I got it was for the illustrations. Thanks so much for your work.

Oh....the dragon horns are real.  I always thought she just had peculiar taste in headgear O_O This is cool, though!

1. The use of wind as general force of movement in the picture is grand - there is not one thing, that stays untouched by it.
2. The design for Maleficent is perfectly balanced and interesting.
3. General composition - without a single flaw :)
