I thought I'd research into animated villains and see what makes them so successful as I'm worried I'll fall into some clichés, in a bad way, so here are some images I have at present:

Thanator from Avatar
Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty:
Scar from The Lion King:
Ursula from The Little Mermaid:
Chernabog from Fantasia:
Yzma from The Emperor's New Groove:
Ratigan from Basil the Great Mouse Detective:
Shan Yu from Mulan:
Hopper from A Bug's Life:
The Horned King from The Black Cauldron:
Randall from Monsters Inc.
Tai Lung From Kung Fu Panda:
Lord Shen from Kung Fu Panda 2:

I know there are much more villainous looking characters out there but I'm drawing a blank, so I'm going to go and chill out and have a think. Any ideas would be muchly appreciated! :D


  1. maybe, you're in need of some story to help you place your characters?

  2. What's the request? List some villains?

    Darth Vader
    Ming the Merciless
    Wicked Witch of the West

    This guy!!!!!!

  3. OH MY GOD! I remember that guy!! Drunken Master the Jackie Chan film? Amazing XD
    Any villains that have a particular silhouette, either the way they hold themselves, their costume or the way they're drawn. I'm just trying to work out how to make my villains more evil really.

    I agree with you Phil, I think a story would be much better at pulling it all together. I have a rough idea so I'll have a go at writing it tomorrow :D
