This was my second entry in the AUSCON 2011 'Wizards of Oz' painting competition. I decided to follow virtually the same colour scheme as that used for the original studio version, because I think Ali chose the perfect colours for the figure. As soon as I saw the original, I loved it so much that I wanted one for myself; and if a figure has the perfect colour scheme I don't see the sense in changing it just for the sake of originality. I tried to create an environment reminiscent of a coastal ocean shore with waves swirling round the rocks, because I've always found this figure very suggestive of that sort of scene. I was very honoured and flattered to receive a gold medal at Auscon for this figure.
