Across the Universe by rocketdave Across the Universe by rocketdave
Based on the Oz series by L. Frank Baum and the illustrations of John R. Neill and W.W. Denslow, as well as Eric Shanower. Princesses Dorothy and Ozma chillax under a tree while the Cowardly Lion, Toto and Eureka hang out in the background. And if one looks even farther into the distance, a couple other familiar characters are visible as well.


I'd initially wanted to fit even more Oz characters into the scene, but I was afraid it would seem too "busy" and throw off the balance of the composition. I'm quite pleased with the way this piece turned out, but I can't feel too complacent about my small accomplishment when I consider how many illustrations fill a typical Oz book or look at Shanower's Adventures in Oz comic in which every single panel is a friggin' work of art.

Yes, I am aware of that. Don't make much sense, most of the time.  If any of my highly senseless comments, can be of any use in the future, I will be glad to be of service. <bow>

Even one of the piglets the Wizard gave Ozma.  You think of everything!

Yeah, I suppose there aren't a ton. Well, Ozma's not a super well known character, relatively speaking. I'm glad you like this piece anyway.
