IMC - Initial Critique -

I'll try to add more IMC info/pictures if/as I have time. But intro stuff went well. I'm only half-way jet-lagged/sleep deprived. Is great to see how many people I know from last year. Plus many more new friends to make. AND I have a fan in my dorm room + one in the studio (thanks to generous friends who were driving) - so I may survive the humidity. :-)

I'm going with the steam-punk Wicked Witch of Oz (I was critiqued by Boris Vallejo and Scott Fischer)-


(I have one more revised version since this scan, but ah well - Will post as I can.)


Which my darling mom posed for when she was visiting last month. Isn't she cute? And the best.sport.ever.!!

It's a nice design--eye goes right to the witch. Hope you have a great, inspiring time! Looking forward to seeing the drawing/painting progress along the way...

I think that it is great your mom poses like that :D

Your steam punk Oz drawing looks great. I really like how the monkeys all look different :)

Why not a pointy hat?

Love the picture of mom.

Maren - this is a steampunk version of Oz (look up steampunk on wikipedia if you are not familiar with). All very Victorian - top hats being the most popular (and a better choice than a bowler hat, I think?)

I think I'm most jealous that Michael Whelan is going to be there. Just love his style.

Fabulous drawing Tara, isn't your mum brilliant!

Maren said...

Wasn't the set of "Wicked" done in Steampunk? I loved all of the clock pieces. It made me want to go into set design. Does your drawing have any parts of clocks? I may be confused about what Steampunk is.
