'Pucking Around' -- COMPLETED by hiddenxmajesty 'Pucking Around' -- COMPLETED by hiddenxmajesty
~Check out the initial sketch here: [link]

~This was done freehand, but I used the following screencap as a reference: [link]

Say hello to Puck, the famous trickster from "A Midsummer Night's Dream," as adapted by the fantastic Disney show "Gargoyles" (1994-1997).

I found myself blissfully re-watching the program during my junior year of high school, and from then on Puck grew on me when I wasn't paying attention. Finally, I felt compelled to sit down and draw him, and this was the result. His animation style wasn't always consistent throughout the series or even during episodes, unfortunately, but as I think his features were most appreciated when his eyes were blue, that's how I colored them. And, since it makes me sad to see him imprisoned--annoying as he can be at times--I removed the chains originally present in this scene. :P I also tweaked the lighting source because I didn't want just his face to be highlighted.

I did use my laptop to touch up some things that were really bothering me, but honestly, I left many of the imperfections as they were. I'm sure you'll notice them right off the bat, haha! Sorry about the washed-out color, too, despite my attempts at color correction and brightening. In all, the picture looks better in person, but hey.

This is my first completed fan art and while I'm very much an amateur, I put hours of work into it and I'm happy with how it turned out. I hope it brings you joy. :D

You know, most of the time in the cartoon, Puck doesn't have pupils....(even though they often show all the other characters with pupils....^^; ) I've seen Owen with pupils a couple of times, but most of the time he doesn't.....^^; Still love this though! :XD: (lol I've got just about every screenshot of him saved onto my computer.....^^; Which isn't much.... :( )

Haha, I've never paid attention to the pupils, but I don't doubt it, since no two shots of him look the same! I find it rather annoying, to be honest; in some frames he's drawn well and in others I think he looks sort of old or fugly... >.>

I'm glad you look my picture. Maybe I'll take a crack at drawing Owen some time. :D And thanks for commenting!

You're welcome! :XD:

And I always found the pupil-thing kinda interesting....^^; Which is why in my first Gargoyle fanfic, Sweet as Candy, I kept describing "his pupiless eyes" or "her pupiless eyes" or something like that....^^; I don't do that anymore though lol. It's just awkward to write....^^;

(Don't even bother trying to read that fanfic....only the first chapter is good....-_- I only posted the first chapter (and I think the re-written second chapter) to, but I've posted all for of the original chapters here on dA, on my old account, but I moved them to scraps....^^; (It's not a four-chapter story....I just never got around to finishing it....)

And I agree with you: Puck DID look cute in some shots, but looked ugly in other shots...I think Greg said that that was because he had so many animators working on the series (mainly season 2). :|
