Sleeping Beauty is one of my fave Disney movies. Obviously since I named my dog Briar Rose.
With that Maleficent has got to be the scariest Disney villain PERIOD. She still freaks me out, I can't even go near our fireplace after watching Sleeping Beauty. There is no balance of funny with her, she is regal and evil.
That being said I really hate the way this turned out, I am not NEARLY good enough of an artist to capture that evil glint in her eye. Sorry Maleficent, I let you down.
