For my Character Design class we are making our own versions of some of the characters from The Wizard of Oz (which I don't think I've ever seen all the way through). Here are mine, and another character that we were assigned to design based on a short description.
I feel like the scarecrow's hand is in an awkward place though...
Captain Bill Wheedles is an ex-sailor with a wooden leg from the knee down. His head is almost bald and what little hair he has is grizzled. His eyes are pale blue with a gentle look to them, and his face is round, rugged, and bronzed.
I drew him filling up a kiddy pool for his grandkids. While smoking.
