Epic Mickey concept art. Warren Spector said, "Go crazy with these designs and if it's too far we'll reign it back in." This one went a little too far
Thinner Mickey by ~Hamilton74 The suggester wrote: "It's Mickey Mouse as you've never seen him before! (Except, perhaps, in your nightmares.)" I'd have to agree that this is a dark yet fantastic concept for such a classic character. (

This actually almost gave me a jumpscare when I first saw it on the Epic Mickey Wiki, though I'm used to it now. And I'm probably the only one that noticed that he looks a little bit like the Blot in a way. But, hey, seeing as how Mickey had absorbed some of the Blot, I'm sure this is pretty much what you were going for. But, why is all his color coming off?
Okay, this concept I actually like and am sorry to see scrapped. It carries a powerful message about forgiveness and mercy. It reminds me of the quote "One who fights monsters should see in the process that he does not become a monster, and when you stare into the abyss, the abyss stares back at you."
I wish there would be an Epic Mickey 1 1/2, AKA Epic Mickey in it's original form. The Phantom Blot, the Storm Blot, The Clock Tower's original song and face, and especially things like Thinner Mickey. Even if it was just a beta, I'd LOVE to play it.
Man, they really took the claws off of Epic Mickey for me when they scrapped this and Scrapper Mickey. I wanted Mickey to be all dark and mischievous, not just... drippy, like he is in the actual game.
