IMC09: Steampunk OZ

"Burning Monkey Death"

The Illustration Master Class was a great experience, I would recommend it. Here is the image I did at the class, this assignment was Steampunk Wizard of OZ. I had fun with the jet boots, painting the landscape, and designing the evil winged monkey look. Toto is my favorite part.

I worked on a few more areas and here is how the image finished up with a few detail close ups.

Thank you! =)

The first major crit of the drawing had me change the background to get more of a falling feel. Which was neat.
