I think Number 4 will do for this afternoon. by becsketch I think Number 4 will do for this afternoon. by becsketch
Recently re-watched a childhood favorite of mine, "Return to Oz" just in time for Halloween. Princess Mombi's gallery of interchangeable heads proved - even after all this time - to be wholly disconcerting.

Number 4? Really? Why not Mombi Number 5? (And I bet the heads after Number 5 are named Monica, Erica, Rita, Tina, Sandra, Mary, and Jessica.)

That scene still freaks me out no matter how many times I've watched the movie.

Really great job on capturing the likeness of this particular head (#4)! You even gave it more detail, particularly in the hair, that isn't always clearly visible from the film.

Me TOO! I think it made me feel more grown up watching a movie that scared the crap out of me, I still have nightmares about the hall of heads screaming lol

My nightmares were about the flying chaise lounge with a moose head.

Beautifully rendered Beck! Never watched "Return to Oz" though; you've got me curious now.

Thanks so much - I started it in my normal more cartoony style, but then I got all excited about painting some realistic stuff :) Return to Oz is definitely worth a gander - it's delightfully dark and the special effects are lots of fun, I watched the whole thing on youtube while I was working on this lol
