Kalidah!! That was such an awesome scene! But I guess the old movie didn't have the time or budget for it, and everyone else just uses that movie as source material instead of the books, so... yeah. Still. Tigerbears...!
Wow!! I was so excited when I woke up to see this I absolutely love the different shapes that they all have- their silhouettes really reflect the characters well. The Lion, for example, is very round and believably cowardly because of his soft shape. Nick, on the other hand, is very sturdy and blocky so he is a strong and protective character. AND AGHHH YOUR KALIDAH!!! SO PERFECT!!! I love how fluidly you mixed the bear and tiger here- sometimes artists make it literally a bear body and a tiger head, but the way that you've seamlessly blended the two animals is just so flawless!! Great job!!
I agree with you, Kalidahs DEFINITELY need to be in more things on the basis of they're freakin' tiger-bears. Hell, I'd never even HEARD of a Kalidah until I looked up "creatures of Oz" a few months back (I do quite a bit of research on monsters in my spare time). Also, I just wanted to say that your Oz designs are pretty rad.
