Today I found a veritable treasure trove of evil. Not just one, or even ten amazing pieces of art, but an entire gallery full; tons of Disney villains, courtesy of awesome artist Chernin.
And what I really love about this collection (besides the gleefully diabolical expressions, striking color use, contrast, and pretty much everything) is the inclusion of some lesser-known villains, not just the big ones everybody's heard of. Seeing Mr. Scroop (Treasure Planet) and Chernabog (Night on Bald Mountain) made my geeky heart happy. (Would Chernabog be a villain, though? Strikes me as just an eldritch spirit doing what he does best. But that's a ramble for another article!)
I'm sure you'll recognize a lot of these baddies, but if you don't, they're all labeled for your convenience. (And who knows, maybe you'll find a new favorite antagonist to know and love/loathe!) Now, sit back and enjoy some artfully recreated evil! And if you're on dA, don't forget to show the artist some love!
