    First Post: Wizard of Oz background design

    Hey, this is my first time posting up work here. Just recently joined and been browsing the sketchbooks and various works here for a couple months.

    This was done in Photoshop, and was a final for my Background Art and Design class. I haven't been messing with Photoshop for that long but I want to get real good with digital painting so any advice would be really helpful.

    The theme was Wizard of Oz(Very original I know lol). I plan on updating the Wizard of Oz eventually when I get good enough to put rings around him (I was going for Zordon.. with art nouveau style). Tell me what you think, and of course, any serious critique is always welcome.

    Dorothy's left leg looks broken due to the angle and shading you have currently. I am not to sure of lighting so I will leave that to the more advanced critics around here. I like the idea and I like the mood. You may want to fix the tin man he seems more bronze, try and add some high sheen to him and more silver green with yellow than bronze. The lions tale is coming out of his leg adding some contrasting shadow to the base of his tale will help with that. really not much else my eyes are picking up on. I like it did I mention that yet. BTW WELCOME it's always good to have new artists here.

    Dude props on the critique. I forgot to add some textures on the tin man(was going for a rusty look so the red could bounce off the green wall) but I'm glad you could give me some advice on how to light him(I still have to learn how to shade different materials like silk and metal).

    Thanks man, I'll return the favor for your work

    The tin man does look too bronze, I'd try doing what Spaz suggested.

    As for the broken glass floating around, I think it could be more translucent, seems a little to blue imo. I'd suggest getting a piece of broken glass and try to simulate lighting conditions similar to this to have it look more accurate.
