El Laberinto Del Fauno.

A quick sketch I've been meaning to do for a while, of Guillermo Del Toro's title character The Faun, from Pan's Labyrinth. Lots of neat quirks and swirls and designs to go along with the random patterns of bark and branch and leaf. This was a fun little jaunt. Hope you dig.


  1. Nice composition, Mike - you've got the whole line of the story there in one image: from symbol to dream down to the reality of the little girl herself.

    Btw I thought it was kind of interesting that he is just "the Faun" in the original Spanish title, not Pan specifically. Though maybe I'm reading too much into a name?

  2. Thanks, Dave! Its never specifically stated in the film if the Faun and Pan are the same person, or if its just allegorical. I sort of like not knowing, though!
