Project WOOZ by SeriojaInc Project WOOZ by SeriojaInc
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

Time: 9hrs

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?
