Dorothy Gale from Frank L. Baum’s classic book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. I did this after reading the terrific book Wicked by Gregory Maguire.

Paul, this is a wonderfull series !
lovely work Paul!
I look forward to more and more. Keep the wonder and imagination alive.
Amazing & so lovely. i haven’t got to Dorothy in the book yet, and she doesn’t look as innocent as she does in the movie. Beautiful & wonderful drawing, love the details in her braids, so intricately drawn, fabulous Paul
Thank you pinkyjain. Actually in Wicked she is pretty much depicted the same way Dorothy is in the original Wizard of Oz book. She’s bright, innocent but she really has no idea about Elphaba’s life or the true goings on in Oz. Thanks for adding this to your favourites too. :)
