Meeting the Wizard by graver13 Meeting the Wizard by graver13
The Scarecrow begins having second thoughts about meeting the mighty Wizard of Oz.

A painting I had done for what promises to be a GREAT game, the Oz Collectible Card Game by Orion's Bell. Some of the artists that they got to work on it totally blow me away. Seriously, check it out.

Your style meshes so well with the Oz mythos. Kudos on getting this gig. How many of your pieces will they be using for the set?

Er, not my intent... mostly... well, partly, okay so when i was told to paint the epic moment when scarecrow was off to meet the wizard and he might be having second thoughts about a meeting with a being of such power, how could I not make it creepy? ;)

Thank ya's for noticing!
