Wicked Witch, Lion

Here's my Wicked Witch. It just kinda fell out. She used to be pretty but years of using black magic took it's toll on her body.

My Cowardly Lion. I wish I had put more time into him, but I like his worried expression.I might need to take another crack at him and do a whole body sketch.

I love this theme. I actually did something like this about nine years ago just to entertain myself. I have the old drawings in a sketchbook at my folks house in Texas. I'd kill to have them on me so I could post them...I remember the flying monkey I drew was actually pretty cool.

Great stuff as always Mel. The witches arms are wicked. Most awesome.

i agree. i love those witch's arms. here's an ode:

witch's arms,
so awesomingly drawn
how i love thee!
hold me close
in your wrinkly
dried out love of darkness.

she does rock.

i think the lion looks especially dapper with his Flock of Seagulls hairdo.

"and i ran, i ran so far a-way-ay-ay"

it's appropo for his character, no?

I love the costume design and concept of the witch. Very, very cool.

Jason Chalker said...

Yeah, you nailed the witch. She's spooky. I'd like to see your take on the other characters if you have time.
