Scarecrow




I've started penciling pages and this book is just plain fun.  The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is the book I'm talking about for those of you who don't know.  

I thought I could show you a few Scarecrow doodles.  At first i was drawing him with the typical pointed hat that you see him in all the time.  Then I was doing a few warm up drawings and trying to work out Dorothy's Uncle Henry.  The first drawing started off a little more burly in the beard area but I felt I hit something with the hat.  I loved the hat and decided that I was going to take it from Henry and put it on the Scarecrow.  I think this hat gives a little bit more of a clunky look and feels a little more blush.  Like the hat was filled with straw so to give it enough weight to stay on his head.  

Thanks to everyone who gave their support and came out to Emerald City Comic Con.  It was great meeting you all.

Excellent sketch, nephew. I like the hat you went with; it repeats the round shape carried thru his belly and makes him feel more clumsy. Hope all is well away from city life.

I love it, but I think I prefer the weathered look of the bearded version.

Why does he have a front ass?

I love/hate that you got the one-eye-bigger-than-the-other thing down. I've never seen anyone else do this (as it is in the text) except myself.
You win!
