Oz-Dorothy and Button Bright by urasei Oz-Dorothy and Button Bright by urasei
Button Bright and Dorothy Gale of the Oz books by L. Frank Baum ^^

What? You've never heard of Button Bright? Dorthy Gale doesn't look like that? Oh, get a life. Yeah, Dorothy is actually about eight (Not in this picture, but in the books) and she's blonde. She's also pretty Kickass. Button Bright comes in in The Road to Oz so most of you probably don't know him, but he gets lost all the time. Like, constantly.

Based on the Illustrations of John R. Neill, who did the original illustrations for the Oz books.

I wanted to do them modern but if you are familiar with Oz you'll see that the background is reminiscent of the covers of the books. The clip in Dorthy's hair is because I couldn't very well give her her full crown (Yeah, Dorthy is a princess of Oz after book three)

While I do think that the Wiz is pretty freakin' cool, this one was based on the original illustrations, not my personal interpretation. Maybe next time?

I'm so glad to see more Oz art on here.
And I mean real Oz art, not the Mgm or Wicked stuff that litters everything Oz.

I think when Dorothy moved to Oz she had aged to about 10-11 years old in Emerald City of Oz.

I'm so glad you drew her blonde. I'm so sick of the brunette Dot with the ruby slippers.

I hope you do Ojo and Betsy Bobbin in the next pic, or maybe Trot and Woot.

Thanks^^ I did a serch recently and couldn't come up with many real Dorthy pictures, though there are some good Ozma ones floating around.

Yeah, I guess, but then she doesn't grow after that. I have to do a re-read of the whole series though, it's been way too long.

Nothing against brunettes, but I love the fact that she's a tough little blonde. It makes me happy.

I actually did Betsy and Trot together, but I would love to do them with the boys. That's good, since I was just wondering who I was going to put Ojo with.

No, I haven't colored it yet. This is my first OZ, but I think there are certainly going to be more ^^

AWESOME. I think this is one of your best pictures ever, Zozo.

Oooh, ohhh! Do Ozma next! PLEASE PWETTY PLEASE!!!!
And, and Bill the chicken, and the Glass Cat, and the Patchwork Girl!
AND MOMBI!!!!!

(and yeah, I'm forever having to explain to people that Dorothy is 8, blonde, and was wearing a GREEN dress the first time she came to Oz- and that yes, there were other times as well)

Okay, Okay! I'll do Ozma. I kinda want to do her modern, but I also want to do her like the original, cause she's pretty.

I think she's Billina now ^^

I have to do Scraps, because she rocks...wait...I did Pip and Ozma...where did I put that?

(I know, it's annoying. And she's cool, not a little wimpy looser who needs to be rescued all the time.)

YAAYYY!!!! (< has been eating too many Oreos)

Yeah, that's right, Billina. I forgot. ^^; That's because Dorothy was a loserface who thought that only guys could be named Bill.

Maybe you could draw Ozma both ways, if you can't choose just one.

(Yeah, she was pretty kickass at times. And the Wizard of Oz actually COULD do magic!)

I've done two, one with Ozma and Jack, and one of her both as male and female. I gotta color them.

(Yeah, it just took him a while)
