Alright, we're going back to Oz! Just thought I'd kick things off with this variant cover illustrated by series writer Eric Shanower. On top of doing a kick-ass job adapting Baum's original books into comics, the man is also an accomplished illustrator. If you're a fan of Marvel's Oz books, check out his site and give him some love!
Anyway, this was a fun piece to color, with lots going on. Sadly, I kindda messed up some colors for some characters (why is Henry wearing red?!)-- this was colored long before I actually started on the book proper, and I didn't really know what they would ultimately be wearing. Also, I think I may have gone overboard with the yellowing of it all (though I blame my old monitor for that one)... Still, I just love Eric's old-school style!
