How to create the best villains: Guidelines by Andreas Deja

Published on July 15, 2016, by in Animation.

Character animator Andreas Deja has been responsible for a lot of memorable characters, from King Triton in The Little Mermaid to Lilo in Lilo & Stitch. But he is most remembered for his villains. Deja has to his credit three of the most popular animated villains of animation history – Gaston (Beauty & the Beast), Jafar (Aladdin), and Scar (The Lion King). In this blog post, we take you through Deja’s process of work, and how he created these immortal characters. Gaston (Beauty and the Beast) As per Deja, Gaston remains his most difficult villain. The character was originally designed as a wig-wearing goof. But it was not realistic. Deja went back to the drawing board, and started drawing a human but a little cartoony. He soon discovered that this approach too was the wrong one. The team wanted the character to be handsome, in complete contrast to the Beast.
