Contemporary Oz by kayne Contemporary Oz by kayne
This is the final compilation with all three panels of my Contemporary Oz illustration project.

Please view the individual panels for more infor on each of them;
Tinman: [link]
Lion and Scarecrow: [link]
Dorethy: [link]

Incase you are interested, I hand drew and then inked each panel, scanned them and coloured them in PhotoShop7. The cheated with the skies, they are photos that I took on various occasions.

Please view full size for maximum impact!

*Edited to add: You can now get a print of this, or, if you prefer, each indidual panel is also available. :) Enjoy!

Contemporary Oz by kayne is a wonderful modern interpretation of the old tale of the Wizard of Oz. The vibrancy in this piece is wonderful, and compliments the great style and composition. (thanks to ~tgee for the suggestion) (Selected by +ekud) ( Featured by ekud )

Aww fun-ness! The middle pannel is my favourite! I reckon that you really captured the epitome of a contemporary lion character!

nice interpretation..i like the idea of the punk tinman and the wizard, who holds the window and the entrance to oz in his hands...a bit surreal :D love this pic...
the lion is just sooo funny... i didn't recognize the scarescross easily

Beautifully done, The Wizard of Oz still has relevance today (The Wizard of Australia maybe?) The yellow brick road flows nicely through all frames and connects them clearly, good work.
