Emperor Tin Man


....so, I was reading about the Tin Man on good ol' Wikipedia, and I guess his character goes on to become emperor of the evil witches old kingdom. And from what I read, he wont allow anything to be harmed in his kingdom- under any circumstances. He also had everything in his kingdom replaced with tin- even the flowers are made out of tin. It kind of freaked me out, so i made an image of him sitting on his throne with a look that could be regal....or threatening.

Nice. King Conan meets Dr. Doom. Sweet.

The Tin man's plans are exactly what I was planning on doing when I become emperor. Except I want everything to be made by Nerf. How I love the smell of a new Nerf ball.

Nice drawing and attitude. Your tinman scares me.

Very cool pose. I really like how the composition leads you to such a strong expression. Sweet... not literally of course .... he kind of looks sour to me...

This kick ass. All dark and brooding.
The hearts are a nice touch. You rendered the Tin Man's metallic surface really well.

He needs to open some windows and let some light in. Bam Chow!

I think this is one of your best character pieces. Really great work!

If you ever get a chance do the companion piece of the Tin Soldier from the books....I forget the ending to his story....but very similar origins....and what about the Munchkin girl the Tin Woodsman was after to begin with....I smell a great Conan/Frazetta idea there.

Great work buddy!
