Wizard of Oz concepts

Post by Lambey » Thu Jun 05, 2008 6:21 pm

Some freelance concepts from an Oz project I did visual development for awhile back. I'm pretty sure the projects defunct now, so they should be cool to post up. Time was short (as usual) so I had about a week to flesh out a lineup. Luckily I'm a big fan of the book, so the ideas came pretty quickly.



I didn't want to change things up too much. Just build on the original ideas. I love the idea of the tin man being this huge behometh robot. A kind protective spirit. With the lion, making him smaller felt right. Just to push the whole cowardly theme home. I pictured him going into a bezerker rage when he finally gains his courage. Like a tazmanian devil or rabid wolverine. The rest are pretty standard. Although I did made wicked witch young and sexy, just to create a direct contrast with Glinda, the white witch. Plus evil is sexy.

Anyway hope you guys like em!

I agree with Muffin!

Although I'm being a bit partial to the Wicked Witch, myself, and pretty much for the stated reasons. :)

Plus I dig the hat.
