Hello, my fellow deviants. I am currently in production of a few more Ever After High OC's (it's taking a while
). While I was working on one of my character profiles, I noticed that my OC, Kansas Gale, didn't exactly look the part that she was supposed to portray. I tried to give her appearance a somewhat "country-ish" look; but after looking at it more closely, I realized that I didn't even come close to that look at all. I decided to submit a redesign that I hope came a little closer that resembling Dorothy than the original.
I traded her green and yellow based scheme with shades of blue, along with some incorporation of bright red. I also exchanged her ruby heels with silver heels. In case you didn't know, Dorothy's slippers were actually silver in the original Wizard of Oz novels. In the famous 1939 film, the slippers color were changed to Ruby Red. They did this because the film used the, then new, technicolor process, and a popping color (like red) was more appealing to the audience than silver.
I feel like this new design looks more like Dorothy, and definitely fits the character image I was looking to achieve.
