I've recently decided to do my own take on the Wizard of Oz story by Frank L. Baum and W.W. Denslow. I've decided to follow the original layout of the characters in the drawing plates but went on my own with the character and color styling..this guy here with a hat is on of the 6 characters in the 3rd plate in the original edition. Since i use AI and PS on this one...i decided to draw each character separately and just place em all together in the bg.
I'm quite interested in getting that neat grungy look using watercolor as base rendering method. The lineart is quite familiar but for this pieace it's the watercolor experiment brushes im after. Lineart drawn in pencil then traced in flash colored in Corel Painter 12 and tweaked in PS
