Captain of the Guard
This is part of an ongoing series of assignments in Sam Nielsen's digital painting class. We are doing character redesigns from classic literature, in this case the Wizard of Oz. I chose to work on the flying monkeys lol :) This is a value study of Nikko, captain of the flying monkey guard. He still needs some occlusion and some work on his hat . . . but this is what I turned in for class. I'm actually really excited to work on this character, L. Frank Baum gave the flying monkeys a rich and tragic back story that isn't explored that often.
