Madame Razz design!

Here is an interesting piece of development artwork of Madame Razz, as featured in the She-Ra Series Bible. It is obvious where the origins of her character design come from, and here we see she is illustrated as a typically cartoon witch in her earliest designs. What I like about this piece is that the style of illustration and character design is far removed from the style that Filmation often employed in their shows.

Looks like a character from a Disney movie! Good thing the design was changed to more of an original style, but I do find the big shoes and pockets quite amusing. :)
Thanks for reading! God Bless!

This is totally Madam Mimm! The Sword in the stone is my favorite Disney Movie. I wonder who the artist is that did the sketches for the bible and if they worked for Disney.

This Razz could be a leftover from an old Hanna Barbera cartoon. Or even an early Filmation one like those Groovy Ghoulies.

Wow, what a vast transformation. Almost reminds me of Emu's nemesis Grotbags! Always surprising how they go from the concept to final character!

This is so painful to look at! She looks like she should be stirring a witches brew!
