I remember drawing these character designs of Creeper from The Black Cauldron, gosh...so many years ago. We came up with a large variety of looks for this little devilish creature. Nothing got approved until one day I came up with this concept. 
Animator Phil Nibbelink drew most of his personality scenes. I didn't do any. Creeper's final color model  in the film is green... I still prefer the cold blue tones. There are very few animation highlights in the film, but Phil's Creeper scenes really stand out for complex and interesting motion and acting.

This over sized model sheet is currently offered by Heritage Auctions from the film's producer's archives.
