+Oz+ by Tyshea +Oz+ by Tyshea
EDIT
for all of you asking for Toto, check it out: [link]
END EDIT

hah....been working on this for a few days in an out

From Left to Right:
Dorothy (Queen of Clubs), Scarecrow (Jack of Diamonds), Tinman (Ace of Hearts), Cowardly Lion (King of Spades)

it takes a bit of explaination, though, so stay with me if youre curious XD;;


alrighty then....i got the idea to redesign the Wizard of Oz characters.

*initially i only had an idea for the Tinman, a mech/knight/steam robot with a hole over his heart since its what hes missing....so i got the idea to put a heart shaped hole there, ala KH (^^;).

*when i got to the scarecrow, i thought about putting a brain shaped hole, but decided against it for being so corny XD;....so i tried making it an eye...that didnt work too hot either....it came out diamond shaped...so i thought "hey....i gots a heart and a diamond...might as well use Card Suites! 8D"

*So when i got to the Cowardly Lion, i was wondering where to put his "hole" and since hes a coward, i was thinking of having a hole where his balls should be o___O; (i know im sick....)....and since a "spayed" animal is one thats been neutered....i decided to make the Lion the Spade Suite (XD;;; )....i ended up making the Lion "gutless" though......(im so clever durhurhur)

*i acutally had the most difficulty making Dorothy...the only thing i did have in mind was i knew i wanted her to have red shoes to represent the ruby slippers....but when i got to her, the other three card suites were taken, so she was left with Clubs...so to get inspiration i looked up a few images of the Queen of Clubs in card decks, and realized a majority of them had some sort of checker design on them.....so i thought i might as well make her some emo/punk costume....or something XD;;;



ALRIGHT, sorry bout that.....looong ass explanation XD;;;
(though i might ignore all comments asking why theyre based off of Suites >.> )

I jaw dropped at the first sight. If I was that clown from Macdonald I would say "I'm loving it!"

This is so cool. I really like these designs; they're new and fresh. Almost Burton-esque. I do wish yoh had incorporated the classic blue dress, though I think I understand why you didn't. Aesthetics. Have you ever thought about bringing this back or designing other characters like Glinda or the Wicked Witch(es)?

All clever and cool, not to mention that the suit gave it an air of "crossover" with other story i dam'n love; Alice In Wonderland.

best Oz concept in modern times! witty, young and creative. i like dorothy in red cool sneakers and the lion looking ultra-cool. i like how you incorporated the card suits, very clever. a true artist is not one who just expresses thru a particular medium, but one who finds ways to get the elements together and make them talk a thousand words. nice job!

These are really sweet designs! I'm doing something with the OZ characters (along with a few other characters) myself. Now, they're elite "guns-for-hire" in a futuristic setting.

Correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't this posted under the name "Alice in Wonderland X Wizard of Oz - Cross[Repost]" by MorbidWolf13?
