Somewhere over the rainbow-

*fullview is recommended*

This one goes out to Loish because I feel bad for her computer getting fried and the loss of all (or some of) her pretty arts. o n o

Lately, I have been FINALLY getting back into the deviant art mood and I have been trying to comment more and such, and I noticed I have been hanging around Loish's page a lot. I have always been influenced by her art and, now, more so than ever. She is VERY VERY good refrence for colour AND form.

Anyhow, about this pic. I drew a Wizard of Oz picture and I wanted to try a new style and REALLY emphasize colour usage. In this picture is the lion, the tin-man, the scarecrow, dorothy, and toto (he got lost in the picture when I began to colour it, but he kind of got over looked in the movie too, so it kind of works?)

Medium - Open Canvas (drawing, colouring) and Photoshop (compresion, editing)

Wow, this is awesome! I love the coloring style, the activity that's going on in the poses, and just your take on the Wizard of Oz. It's so creative, unique, and definitely inspiring.

haha! this is great. love the expression on the lion's face. my only consern is that toto is getting kind of lost in the midst of everything and the tinman's axe is so stylized(not that that's a bad thing) that it kind of looks like one of those ricola horns. still i really like how you colored this and the character of the piece is great. nice work

It's like...a Wizard of Oz...DYNAMIC ACTION POSE! Go!...No, actually, I think the coloring and composition is impeccable, and while Toto did get lost, it's not that big of a deal, as you said yourself...Normally, I think I might have put him weaving out of Dorothy's legs, or something like that, just maybe.

Loish totally kicks ASS. Dorothy is pimpin. :heart: and the coloring makes me swoon as usual. ;3~
