Professor Ratigan by Themrock Professor Ratigan by Themrock
The world's greatest criminal mind.
And here is my take on him.

I miss you Vincent Price.

Alright Dirk seeing that you wish for this piece to be critiqued then so be it.

Your take on Ratigan is simply amazing, you managed to summarize his personality in a single pose and your take on him is both on and off model which is a great achievement when developing a personal style. Your use of line variations helps create a solid, dimensional form.

But if you wish for me to be nit-picky the way you've positioned his arm that's holding the bell feels somewhat off but to be honest it does however add the surreality that you brought into the design of Ratigan.

Hope I have been of great help.

One of the greatest (and underrated) disney villains of all time. no one couldhave pulled off his persona better than Vincent Price's voice.

Same could be said for Glenn Keane, the animator who brought this mad character to life! Nobody else could have pulled off such a great performance like he did. I especially love how he sheds off the aggressive gentleman look in the end battle and exposes his true rabid colors, it's as if they were also doing a Disney version of Jekyll & Hyde!

One of my favourite movies! I loved how they used to animate back then. The was Ratigan moved was just plain creepy, but, y'know, the good creepy.

You probably have the raddest style of anyone I have ever seen on dA. True story.

Ratigan is one of my favourite villains of all time. And the way you've captured him is incredible.

I really can't get over the lineart. It's amazing.

Why is there no Tintin fanart in your gallery? D:

It is certainly wonderful, his posing makes him look even more evil ^^ I like the texture you used on the whole pic, it makes look like a classic poster :) Maybe it would look better if you darkened the color of the red background, so that Ratigan will stand out...but it's just my opinion ^^; Anyway, I love your work, and Vincent Price was an excellent actor indeed :D
