Oz by Claudia-SG Oz by Claudia-SG
2013. Photoshop CS4 + Wacom Cintiq 22HD.

No ref used except from some details.

ŠKOF - Kingdom Of Fantasy magazine.

Finally, I can show you this picture. I made this cover art for a brand new magazine called KOF (Kingdom of Fantasy), published by DieGo publishing ([link]).
As requested, I got inspired by the two movies about the Wizard of Oz, (one of my favourite books, by the way), the brand new one called "The Great and Powerful Oz", directed by Sam Raimi, prequel of the old movie by Victor Fleming, "The Wizard of Oz", in 1939, and this is my tribute to those amazing movies and to Frank Baum too!
As you can see, I didn't want to portrait all actors involved in the new movie, I just wanted to catch some similarities and paint all characters by myself. I still have to go to the cinema and watch the new movie, but working on this cover made me pretty much curious about it (I had to do a lot of research), and the color are pure awesomeness!
Anyway, I hope you like it.
And yes, it is my very first painting with my brand new Cintiq! I love it! :love:

FYI: you can find a workshop of this cover inside the magazine! Out the 29th of March! Stay tuned on www.diegopublishing.com.

More than Wicked ever did, this movie made me want to see a little farm girl in pigtails showing the Witch of the West the path to Goodness so badly.

Thar movie was very interesting and a very good back Story to because we all know the Story of The Wizard of Oz we know Dorty Story like how she meets The Scarecrow the Tin man and The Lion and go to See The Wizard of Oz to get what they want and what they need and how they com face to face with Wicked Witch but the Fact is we Have Never known what happen before.

Being based on such a wonderful old classic film, I doubted it'd be that good...
Boy, was I wrong!! :D

And what if I was a Baum fan instead?

And if I complained about "Wicked" destroying Baum's vision?

Would Hana-Bakemono twist my words so I, in Hana-Bakemono's tumblr page, sound like I'm defending the MGM version instead?

Would Hana-Bakemono put it in terms of "MGM Oz VS Wicked Oz", when I really meant "Baum Oz VS Wicked Oz"?

Would Hana-Bakemono then give me the silent treatment when I try to explain to him/her that I meant the L. Frank Baum books and NOT the MGM version?

L. Frank Baum...Lewis Carroll...they were both geniuses. Gregory Maguire had no right to destroy Baum's vision, and American McGee had no right to destroy Carroll's vision. But people don't read books anymore.

As long as there are people like Hana-Bakemono in this world, the great literary masters of the past will never get the appreciation they deserve.

Oz (James Franco) is soo hot. And My favorite witch is Theodora.. I love how she looks moree classy rather than princess like compared to Glinda and Evinora.
I like how u added Dorothy and the others to the background too. And the framing around the whole thing is beautiful.

You do know that Glinda's eyes are brown, right?

"In the books, Glinda is depicted as a beautiful young woman with long, rich red hair and blue eyes, wearing a pure white dress" ([link])

Actually if you want to be really fussy, what is really wrong is her hair colour. As I wrote in the description, I made a re-interpretation of all characters, mixing the movie actors with my tastes. Please, next time read before comment. :)

If Disney had anything that was specific to the 1939 movie, they could get sued. That's why Glinda wasn't a redhead, why the ruby slippers didn't make an appearance, why the witch's skin color was a different shade of green, etc.

and so? Sincerely, this criticism is pointless. If you don't like my picture because her eyes are blue and not brown, you can go ahead, nobody forces you to stay here. ;)
