WB Marketing Art, Dorothy and Toto, THE WIZARD OF OZ.
Okay... This is the final art for a series of WOZ collector's plates.
The series was originally an assignment for renowned artist, DAVID EDWARD BYRD, but I was enlisted to assist him by rendering full pencil drawings which he then translated to color (mixed media), and provided backgrounds. So, this was a COLLABORATION.
I was deeply honored to work with David, whom I always referred to as The ByrdMan. He has a very laid-back way about him, much like a charmingly funny hippie.
Unfortunately, I only retained a copy of the pencil art I did for the Dorothy plate, for which I received a Daily Deviation notice recently:[link]
You can compare the final with the preliminary I provided if you wish. I've long resisted posting this art at all, because the bulk of the work was done by another artist. However, I decided there was some educational value in exhibiting this as an example of how two professionals can effectively team up, and I've been continually reminded how much the kids here love to see things colored! LOL! So, here ya go, even if I didn't do it.
The discerning eye will be able to detect certain differences between my drawing and this one. These were eidtorial changes, but they're quite subtle. I cannot say that I agreed with the changes, but everyone here is entitled to their own subjective opinion.
