Elphaba Lives by DryEyez Elphaba Lives by DryEyez
An Elphaba I drew in the car. I wanted more context though so I added the "Elphaba Lives" graffiti from Son of a Witch. Tried to create an atmosphere.

I love the eerie atmosphere. It leads me to believe that Elphaba's back, doesn't necessarily want everyone and their dog to know about it, and it's also with a serious vengeance. She's going to fuck shit up and every body better get the hell out of her way.

So, clearly this is some time after the Wizard abdicated, long enough for the rumors of Elphaba's continued existence to spread. It's clear that coming back is not something she would want to be doing, but that look says she's going to do what's right, whatever that is. Also that it seems important that the world continues to believe she is dead.

Might be her granddaughter. At the end of "Son of a Witch", she turned out to be green (and waterproof).

It could be. But that expression says it might be the genuine article.

I dunno. Liir got pretty damn cynical at times (when he wasn't cowering behind his cowardice). It might run in the family.

Wonderful drawing, I love her dress, though she doesn't look very happy about the slogan (then again, she tends to be pretty unhappy toward the end of Wicked, so...). Also-the blue diamond, possible reference to Fiyero or just added in?

Really like this piece! Love the intensity in her expression, and the background, and the dark colors! Also, the little blue diamond on her neckline - a reference to Fiyero, perhaps? Beautiful work!

Okay this is really fantastic work. You should try some Son of a Witch stuff too, I think you'd really nail it.

Wicked is just freaking awesome. :D

I love how the "Elphaba Lives" Graffiti from Son of a Witch looks almost... like chalkboard writing.. being a Wicked-obsessed person, I totally love how you combined elements of Wicked and Son of a Witch (Graffiti + Elphie)!

Yeah, it's where I think about stuff, usually pictures. And since I'm always a passenger what else is there to do? lol It's interesting to see what can come from drawing in a different environment. :)

I dosn't look like it I think she'll be in a later book. God I miss her. Son of a witch seems so boring without Elphaba. Also it ould've been nice if Fiyero lived too some of my fave parts were Fiyerba

I'm not sure how much it is on Broadway but I was talking about when the tour came to where I live. New york's a 5 hr drive & it would probally cost more there.

Damn, i envy you for being able to draw in a car. Everytime i try i swear that whoever is driving will hit a bump in the road when i am working on small details that are hard enough to do without moving, and so i usually end up throwing my sketchbook in the back and going to sleep...
