boom, baby! by Wickfield boom, baby! by Wickfield
OMG this is finally done! I have literally worked on this thing all day...
This is definitely the longest I've taken on a drawing like this, but I wanted to make it very detailed because I do love Kuzco. Anyway, at the risk of ripping off *shoomlah (although I didn't intend to) this is my version of a historically-inspired Emperor Kuzco!

Kuzco is the Incan emperor, and historically I'm pretty sure he would be equally as vain and self-centered, considering the Incans worshipped their Emperor like a god! Surprisingly, apart from being really simplified and stylized, Kuzco's clothing in the movie wasn't particularly inaccurate. I just made my historic version more elaborate by doing detailed metalwork and imitating the designs in Incan textiles on his robes. I also gave him a feathered crown like actual Incas wore and the big gold staff thing I kept seeing in all the illustrations. Even his painted nails and the plugs in his ears are historically accurate...even though it took forever he was really fun to draw!

And the best part is they actually wore nail polish so it's technically canon. :XD:  (I read why they did that but can't remember now unfortunately.)

I'm definitely going to have to look that up now. Or just take your word for it and bask in the glow of a fabulous historical fact. ^_^
