- Everything is alright,
With us here tonight;
You with no fight,
And I with no might.
The clock ticks not for us, my love;
Let's slip away into the light.
Everything is alright,
With us together tonight;
You with no might,
And I with no fight.
The future is out of our hands, my sweet;
Out of Oz we'll take flight.
...I should be cautious, poetry is the gateway to prose. ;>
Anyways, people on Tumblr got a preview for this and after another sleepless night, here's the finished product. I started it in the way I start most things, with a longing to draw ladies and a pile of leftover art supplies. And also because I couldn't stop watching Sherlock (my adorable socially inept baby <3).
...ANYWAYS, situation here... is in the poem up top. Composition unintentionally mirroring the Wicked musical poster, but I guess that all works out then.
Also, Elphie's green skin is as hard to paint as Glinda's curls are to draw. (I also really did not like this paper, it's cheap off-brand stuff that doesn't take the paint well. :< )
Sketch and colour mock-up: here if you missed it.
Watercolour paper (unknown brand/press); HB pencil; Prismacolor multiliners; DaVinci gouache; minor edits in Adobe Photoshop CS5; Original is 6" x 9"

That's a beautiful picture! I like the intimacy, and G(a)linda's facial expression in particular
Thanks so much. I tried my hardest to convey that sort of feeling of intimacy within the piece.
Nawww, another masterpiece! I love how confused Elphie looks and how comforting Glin looks!
Great job beautiful poem and drawing
