+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 >.> )

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!

They kind of make me think of Digimon.  They are fantastically awesome, by the way!
