An oldie, but goodie :) One of my first pics used to experiment with photoshop coloring! Created for my Concept Art Club at the Art Institute.

Hand-drawn, inked, then photoshop

Interesting... I like the train engine motiff of the Tinman's design, as well as the Greco-Roman adventuress costume of Dorothy -- ruby slippers/silver shoes as Mercury's sandals is certainly different.

Two questions: what was your thought pattern re: Scarecrow's redesign, and what does WOOZ stand for?

For the Scarecrow, I was going for a sophisticated butler motif, but I may have gotten a little carried away with the hay/facial hair look. I wanted to make him look just a bit intimidating, yet refined. "WOOZ" is just "Wizard of OZ", but employing the whole word OZ instead of just the "O". Thinking back on it, "WoOZ" might have made it a bit clearer.

Scarecrow-as-butler sounds interesting. Recently found out online that Jon Pertwee, one of the actors who played DR. WHO, later did a TV adaptation of some old English children's story series about a living scarecrow. Gives one an intresting idea -- the one who wants a brain as a brilliant-but-befuddled absent-minded professor type, eh?

Wow, for once I love the Scarecrow in a reimage of the Core Four of Oz.

Tin Man's design is good too!

I can see why!

Any back story to how this came to be, or why the characters are how they appear?

it was a project at school to redesign the WoOZ cast into a steampunk theme.

Crap!
I've been having the biggest bit of WoO for like, three weeks here, and then you go and post something like this!
Albeit, in my version, it's not a scarecrow, but a SCARED CROW, a brainless anthro lioness, a heartless anthro wolf, and a war droid in an existential crisis…

Oh, let's not forget the Tigris, an nearly extinct tiger people, and the Ursuso, a thought to be extinct bear people…
…a a realm of existence where 100 years could pass and only a day would go by in our reality…
