Wizard of Oz: Dorothy

And here are the thumbs for Dorothy!

Designing Dorothy proved to be quite challenging aswell, as you end up with 'just some random kid' quite easily. I eventually stumbled upon the pigtails to the side, which creates a strong silhouet and gives her attitude at the same time. I'm already looking forward to exploring her facial expressions and gestures :)

Only 1 character left of the main cast (Lion), but I'll have to dig through some reference before I ca start that character, so I"ll get back to you on that one :)

On another note:
I've also almost finished another 'parade' drawing (similar to my previous 'Witch Parade' and 'Circus Parade'), featuring alot of pirates. And monkeys. And even more pirates!:D
I hope to have that up here in a few days aswell! :)

Soooo, staaay tuunneed! :D

I like doodles! And I like it in a way you did - with gray color on a white background. Cool! Can I steal the idea? I mean gray and white? )))

Sure man, no problem. Greyscaling really helps to pop out the silhouets, and makes your characters read better from afar. Good luck!

As an observer, the pigtails on the side give me more of a Pippi Longstocking vibe than a Dorothy vibe. Just found your blog through Blogger's Blogs of Note and figured you'd appreciate the feedback despite the year and a half that's passed since this was posted. You've got some great stuff here; I love all the pirate drawings!
