I’m working on a Cyber-Punk version of the Wonderful Wizard of Oz, here are some of my ideas for the characters.
My version of the Witch is a dominatrix who has psychic powers but ultimately is very selfish. Tin-Man is about broken hearts and suffering. I was thinking maybe I can use heart design similar to the Vé-vé of Erzili Freda. She’s a Voudou spirit who similarly is all about broken hearts and tears. And finally, the Wiz, who is a drug dealer.
I made this illustration inspired by the famous Bananarama song about the Goddess Venus.
Also in classical mythology, there is a triangle of Greco-Roman Gods who are considered the protectors of gay love. Each of them contributes something important to the love: beauty, communication and strength.
How to cook an egg if you are Mind-Flayer, a powerful and arrogant psychic, who abuses their power and looks down on all life. These guys are the main adversary in Baldur’s Gate III.
