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

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!

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 )

amazing don't seem to fail, at create amazing AMAZING work, and this lives up to it...taking such an old classic and adding new age to it, and making it actually work! very cool, man. the artwork itself is great, very fine lines, almost comic-book like. and the brilliant colors...yeah. i dind't realize you added the sky from a photo until you said so, the inking and the photo just seemed to work together so well, blend reality into fantasy. nice. okay, good job again...bravo :dygel:
katewackerle Jun 7, 2004  Hobbyist Photographer friends just got me the 3 prints as a gift after our production of 'The Wizard of Oz'. They're amazing... :-D
I love it! I love the tinman, (hugs him), i love your view on the characters, it's different. I love how each one pulls into the next to smoothly, and the colors are just spectacular. This is one that I wouldn't mind owning....very very nice...
I don't know how I missed this until now, but, as some people say, "better late than never!"

All I can say is WOW.

This is truly amazing. I love the characterization of the tin man the most, quickly followed by the very psychedelic effect of the wizard portrayal.

This is some very very very good work, Kayne. I'm sorry I didn't get to see it before, but very glad to have had a chance to see it at all.

All the best Kudos to you!
