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.
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.
