Wow. That is an interesting take on Maui. He does look more like the typical Disney hero.

I absolutely love this because it's a lot more realistic to his mythology than what they did in the movie, and in this design he lacks that 'round-mentor-not-a-love-interest' look. I would have liked this design a lot more, because it would have made the movie a lot better to him look like this and then have Moana and him part ways a nothing more than friends.

In an interview with Dwayne Johnson he said they based Maui's look on his Samoan grandfather. They showed a picture of him in his youth and it's almost identical to Maui, which I think is a really sweet tribute. Don't get me wrong I love your design and this is an awesome drawing I just thought some people on here who complain about the movies design should know where it came from :)

The original concept of Maui is "the Maui" of the movie. This Maui is MY version of him

I'm really thinking about doing a fan-comic involving my version of his early years, like from to childhood up until he steals the heart of Te' Fiti, I'm a raging Moana nerd :D

I adore your version by the way ^^

Wonderful job!! Maui looks amazing, like an adorable teenaged version of him. xD I don't mind Maui being big, he's adorable anyway, but he could've a little slimmer. Tbh if he was tall and muscular, I would only see the Rock, not Maui. :3

thanks Let me hug you! . And I'm agree with you, If the character of Maui was tall and muscular that would be the animated "The Rock" and not Maui.

So my version is an Animated "The Rock" XD

is this supposed to be the guy "the rock" is voicing in the new Disney movie? I only ask because I would actually have seen it if he had looked even remotely this good, unlike the overly animated blob of silly putty on the screen this look's cool and is clearly a thought out character with a functional and believably realistic design.

The design of my version of Maui, is inspired by "The Rock", the voice of the character. I tried to create a version of the demigod more realistic and sassy. And maybe is too much sexy ...
I'm glad you like it .
