Moana of Moto Nui -- Now With More Maui! (D)

I saw Moana!  I loved it.  I think I'll like it even better when I see it again.  Anyway, unlike the last few Disney animated movies, I was actually inspired to do some fanart for this one before seeing it:
She's so cute.
And so fierce.
16-year-old me would be shocked that I didn't see it on opening day but he would be pleased at opening day splash-of-color sketches.
 And then of course I did some Sunday Sketches after actually seeing it.
That Maui is tricky.  He took three fails before I was more or less okay with him.
Away away.

(Incidentally, I finally saw Finding Dory on the same day and found it thoroughly, and ironically, totally forgettable.)

UPDATE 6 February 2017:

I did one for Maui too.  Our kids love his song, which has grown on me (though some of the lyrics still seem lazy), and his design has grown on me too (probably helped by doing these studies). The shapes! The tattoos... And a great subject for Manhair Monday, which is interesting because early design sketches show him as bald, surely inspired by The Rock.

  1. Love it as always. His tattoos are impressive. Seriously perfect.
