'Wizard of Oz' Makeover by whysoawesome 'Wizard of Oz' Makeover by whysoawesome
Completed: Aug 2009

I'm finally done with my new piece:

A modern take on the 'Wizard of Oz' gang.

I had the idea to do something like this for a long time, and after months of an utter void of motivation to draw, I decided to just jump back in and see if this lingering idea could get me back in the saddle.

I had a blast with it... I added a few references to different 'Oz' titles, and even a few references to Stephen King's 'Dark Tower' Series. (Many more 'Dark Tower' references were planned, but when I decided to include Elphaba late in the game, I dropped a bunch of them).

I hope you like it.

Like I said, I haven't completed a piece in months, so I'd love to hear your thoughts on my new piece!

Bravo Whysoawesome! Love the textures and the Tinman's lower midsection looking so much like underwear just makes me giggle.

Scarecrow and Flying monkeys my fav of your designs though.

Cheers!
