Another visual exploration of the Tin Man.

I hope this one speaks for itself.

I did this is for my "How To Paint Trees" tutorial series which is a part of my digital painting course called
The Magic Box.

The brushes I used for this painting will soon be available on my website...

This actually solved my problem on how to render leaves on trees digitally. I think I got an idea now. :painter:

Love the colors and design, fun composition.
The magic box is great too, doing month 1 currently, good stuff.

I love Wizard of Oz stuff, and especially Tinman, as he is similar to the character in my graphic novel. I love the sense of light falling on the leaves. I tend to draw everything very quickly and concisely, so I don't get much subtlety. . . This is nice, dreamlike, as OZ ought to be. I am also enjoying your Paperwings podcasts. Question: What do you do if your work isn't being noticed, but you don't want the attention yourself?

I was looking at this and reading comments for about a minute before realizing I was humming the Monty Python Lumberjack song... oi... xD

Great work, I especially love TM's beard and shiny ax. The road and lighting are quite lovely as well.

Oh, I thought this was going to lead into some visual metaphor for perseverance against adversity, with the tin man continuing to try and chop down the tree despite the action causing him to rust, or something that.

Or it could be a juxtaposition between the lively organic trees and the cold hard metal man.

Either way its good to see you posting new stuff. Love the podcast by the way, been bingeing on older episodes recently.

Thanks, buddy. Interesting interpretation!

I live to nitpick things that may or may not be there.
