The Wizard of OZ by ToolKitten The Wizard of OZ by ToolKitten
Hope I dont get typecast for doing fairytales! or that sort of thing, anyways.


This is the variant cover for #1 Wizard of OZ published by Marvel (soon to be, anyways)

This was a really fun cover to do, J.scott asked his editors to have me color this, so I obliged. It puts a check on my list as my first work for Marvel. This cover was straight from pencils and I did some digital inking on the piece before i started.
Cartoony stuff can be fun to color (those clouds look like tasty marshmallows) and there really isn't anything you have to hold back on too much in terms of how bright things get (depending on the setting of course but definitely not here)

so here you go :)

EDIT: The slippers are only red in the movie, in the books they are silver, which this comic follows. please quit asking me why they aren't red :)

Colors by me, Nei Ruffino

Oh you don't have to worry about that. Wizard of Oz isn't a fairy tale. It's North American Mythology by now.

 

Very nicely done. glad to see you remembered the shoes are silver, witches wear white and the color of the munchkin land is Blue. Little details like that really make the picture.

                                            NORTHERN OZ
                                Beyond The Yellow Brick Road
                                                  By VjKelly

Long ago the wondrous Land of Oz was discovered by generations of children and adults alike.  But what few people knew was across the great desert and beyond the most northern territories of Oz was a land long ago forgotten.  That land was Northern Oz.  Once connected to all the counties within Oz by the Yellow Brick Road the two lands became forever separated by an evil spell cast by a wicked sorceress.  She covered the great desert with a dreary, dense fog that thwarted any attempt at crossing.  Since then Northern Oz has existed only as a memory, passed down from one generation to the next …until now.
          So come and join Kristi and her friends, Obo the street clown, Oddbitz the crash car dummy, Timba who is half wolf half man, and the floating-darting Wim the little Wimbididee as they journey through the exciting and magical lands of Northern Oz.

Oh! And I forgot to mention how I love that you put some purple into the Good Witch of the North's garments, which is awesome because the north country of the Gilikins is purple!

I also love the fact that Dorothy is being kept blonde, as she was in the illustrations of John R. Neill.... Although, She was a brunette in the first book, she was blonde in the remaining 39. Great Work! :D

Wasn't it Skottie Young that did the art for the comic?
