The Wizard of Oz Book Illustrations



A series of wonderful relief renderings by Grant Parsley.

Grant writes:

I'm working on an illustration series inspired by The Wizard of Oz. The illustrations are completed as reliefs. I use Zbrush to sculpt most of the complex, organic objects. I use Blender to sculpt the more simple, hard edge objects. Then I texture, light, and render in Blender.

Would love to get some feedback on the work.

Hey Grant, you should consider selling these in Stainless Steel on Shapeways!

    That's some really awesome work of a kind I've never seen in Blender before. Thanks for showing it!

    As the others have said, this is gorgeous work. I'm predominantly a clay and metal worker, and am developing skills in chasing and repoussé on metal (much more old school version of this!). Because of this, I would like to go a little deeper esthetically please and ask about the girl on the lion - is she currently sitting fully in contact with the lion's back? Please be assured this is meant to be a constructive/learning question, and I have to deal with this issue in much less forgiving materials! Thanks for your reply.
