Wonderboy and Nutmeg by Melancholy-Minds Wonderboy and Nutmeg by Melancholy-Minds
This is a late birthday present for my dear friend :iconicylolita: who requested that I draw a picture of the Disney characters Hercules and Megara. (I hope this lives up to her expectations!)

Though I made a great effort to stay as close to their original designs as possible, the perfectionist in me still sees many faults in their proportions and anatomy. I am, however, satisfied with the poses I made up for them-- I had actually begun drawing a few preliminary sketches whilst watching the 1997 film to refresh my memory on their characters, movements and general stances.


The marble texture I used in the background was made by :iconbudgie: and is found here: [link]

Hey good job. C:

I tried wearing a sash around my hips like she did one time... funny how Disney characters can pull off looks that just look dumb irl.

Thank you!

The fact that their proportions are generally entirely unrealistic is a major contributing factor, I think. Meg's bust-to-waist-to-hip ratio would be off the charts if she were a real person.

I always liked watching this movie. Hades was so incredibly human and charming, how can you not like him? xD
Buy okay, this is wonderful, I love how you kept so close to the style of the movie, but I can still tell it's by you. And their poses, they both look like themselves which is always nice to see. The only critique I might have is to perhaps darken the shading on their skin a tiny bit. I can see it, but only barely. I like the way you colored the lines, and the background too. It gives off that mood of the movie while being simple :3 Great work!

I have to agree with you there-- Hades to me is one of the most comedic and entertaining of the Disney villains (but still quite menacing at times.)

You've made some very fair points in regards to my artwork; although my computer screen isn't properly calibrated, I can still see that my drawing would benefit from more distinguished highlights and shadows.

Also, while I wanted to challenge myself by drawing these characters as they appear in the original film, I wonder if, in your opinion, I fell too short from capturing their likeness?

Anyhow, your compliments and criticisms are greatly valued! Thank you for taking the time to write them.

Yes, absolutely, he had that streak of seriousness that made you believe he would follow through on what he said xD

Just a little, but perhaps it might be the difference in our screens now that you mention screens.

Absolutely not. I think perhaps in Hercules's eyes, but other than that both of them look completely like themselves. I was a little shocked when I saw it for the first time, because I was like "Who do I know who can draw characters so like themselves?" XD

You're welcome! (:

Although this isn't my favorite Disney film, I still enjoy watching it from time to time...

In my opinion, the best part of this movie is the villain, Hades... He's just so charismatic!
