From Kansas To Oz

From Kansas To Oz - student project

I based my project on The Wizard of Oz, taking inspiration from the classic movie. I had to adjust the proportions of my grids as I decided to work in a square journal (and my model was rectangular), but other than that I kept exactly to the original layouts I had chosen.

My first spread is painted in a more 'painterly' style, and in sepia tones to mimic the opening scenes of the film before it becomes Technicolor. I really enjoyed working with frames, playing with different fonts, and using line weight to add focus to my illustrations.

All the pages were created with watercolour paints, colour pencils, 0.1 fine liner, brush pen and white gel pen.

Thanks for a really informative class which will definitely make my sketchbooks more interesting and varied!!!
