The Horned King by syrusbLiz The Horned King by syrusbLiz
My interpretation of the Horned King from Disney's adaptation of The Black Cauldron. This guy has to be Disney's creepiest villian. Not my usual type of image, but I'm quite proud of its turnout.

I started this one last October.. I figured it would be good to get done for this Halloween.

Painter 6, 2004.

sketch from 2003

When I was kid I wasn't allowed to watch it but as an adult I finally bought my own copy. I did a little research fun fact this movie was disney's first PG movie. Great work!

I mean he is evil but you can see several centuries worth of pain in his eyes.

Disney fans everywhere,

My name is Brian Martin, and I'm from Chicago. I have been a huge Disney fan all my life, and I need your help. I started a Facebook page and petition that are part of a campaign to get Disney to release The Black Cauldron fully uncut on Blu-Ray for its 30th anniversary next year. From what I understand, 12 minutes of completed animation and music were cut from the movie at the last minute by Jeffrey Katzenberg. Producer Joe Hale and his wife Beverly have already given me their approvals by signing the petition I started, another petition started a few days ago by someone else in Ohio, and writing some messages on my Facebook page. They told me the uncut master negative should be somewhere in the Disney archives. Please go to these links to learn more, sign the two petitions, like my page and call Disney to request!

Ahhh the memories of being terrified, but yet in awe of the horned king. I don't think I even understood what was happening when I was watching this as a kid but I did know that guy looked bad ass
