Character Design Challenge #477– The Wonderful Wizard of Oz – Part 3 – Results

Runner up this week is Angelos Stefanopoulos

There is a lot to look at here, but it is a beautifully crafted piece.

And the win goes to...

Honey Hovercraft. Got to admit that this piece had to grow on me. I am not sure if she is a rabbit or a lamb (the hooves suggest a lamb) but one thing is for sure, this was the character I could not wait to put my stamp on.

Your prize will be posted to the blog later this week.

Thanks to all who entered.

    Congrats, man.

  2. Thanks Djuby and Maurício. I went back and forth between white-dress-red-hearts (as Glinda is drawn by Denslow in the original illustrations) or this look, but I do think I preferred this one.

    Interestingly (to a linguist like me) she has those hooves, ears, and nose to look like a deer, because I was originally thinking she would be a faun, as in Pan’s Labyrinth, one of the inspirations for this contest. Then I checked the etymology, and “fawn” (a baby deer) and “faun” (a satyr-like mythical creature) are actually totally etymologically distinct! (Not to mention that a faun has goat features, not deer ones.) A happy accident!

    Can anyöne tell me if there is a coat/dress back lurking somewhere in HM3? I really feel like there used to be one, but I’ven’t found it. On Glinda and on my Scarecrow, I used a cape masked down to just one section, but I feel like it must be around somewhere…
