  • @Chris-Perry I like 6's design but maybe not the pose. I'll keep uploading more thumbnails as I go! Glad you like them.

    Fell a bit behind, but am kicking it into full gear tonight! Decided on a 1950's update theme. Decided on Dorothy #12, I just really dig her tough tomboy attitude. Had three ideas for the Tin Woodsman: 1) A 1950's Greaser, 2) 50's Johnny Cash, or 3) a more traditional 50's Woodsman/ Logger. My faves are 1, 8 for design, 5/6 for the face construction.

    Moving on to the Scarecrow, and then either the Lion or Glinda. Will circle back to the one's that look best together and adjust as needed.

    Your drawings have a really nice looseness and weight to them! Welcome to the forums!

    I like them all, but my favorite is number 7. I think it is because of the age - he looks like he could be Dorothy´s friend rather than Dorothy´s grandad, like the others. Number 2 is also nice (for the same reason!), but I believe it reminds too much of the main character of "Robots".However, they are really all good, so all valid choices!



  • I like 6... great gesture and has a fun "teeny bopper" appeal. Great approaches, lots of variety to choose from. 🙂



  • Process Update #1:

    So things got crazy and handed this in just in time. So here is the process update. These are the Scarecrow sketches. The two ideas I had were a 50s Salesman or a Beatnik. As much as I loved the beatniks they did not feel cohesive in the line (will get to that later). 0_1471453827665_scarecrowsheet.jpg



  • Process Update #2:

    When I was still trying to make the scarecrow a beatnik. I tried to make the Lion a salesman... decided that I wasn't feeling the lion in clothes, plus time was starting to run down, so I went with the last design.0_1471453944610_lionsheet.jpg



  • Process Update #3:

    After some debate, decided the final lineup based on which designs went together the best. 0_1471454010339_ozlineup_lineart.jpg



  • Process Update #4:

    And here is the final submission! Thanks for all the feedback and support! Sorry I fell behind with the updates.0_1471454105102_ozlineup04snall.jpg



  • Really good! I love love the tufts of fur on the lion's knees!
