"Wizard of OZ" page from a fairy tale themed activity book.
No, not all the pages are colored.

EDIT: It was brought to my attention by a few different people that the lion looks a lot like Skottie Young's version of the lion in in Marvel's comic adaptations...
I searched Google and it's true. It's a lot like it. A lot. And though I never read or owned the books, I remember seeing this picture sometime before.
I think I did copy it from memory. Ugh. Not the first time, though it's the first time with a whole character.

So I went and tried to change the lion. But the results didn't please me much because I don't have much freedom to change only that part of the picture without changing the rest too much.

So, since most of those people who pointed that out to me said not to worry too much, I decided to leave it as is for now...
So if you like the lion, go thank Skottie Young for that base design o/ And this picture is now a tribute to his Oz comics, that I didn't read, but now want to read.

I don't buy it, upon first glimpse I thought it was a carbon copy of the front cover of 'The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz', drawn by Skottie Young, then when I took a second look I realized you took the time to redesign the characters, but the lion is pretty much the same, it's even got the same pose, and the background is shockingly similar, especially when you claim you remember seeing Skottie Youngs pic 'sometime' before you drew your pic, the characters are even in the same place as Skotties pic.
its ok to appreciate others work an dust it as inspiration, but to claim it as all your own work is just sad, what pleasure could you achieve with others praising your work when you know it's not all yours? I enclose Skottie Youngs pic to back up my statement.Wonderful Wizard of Oz 1 Cover by skottieyoung  Still though, yours was a nice pic.

I love the colors! The way it looks, almost feels texture wise like Prismacolor markers (if that makes any sense). Toto looks so cute!
