OZ: THE GREAT AND POWERFUL Concept Art Of The Emerald City & Its Citizens

Hit the jump to check out wonderful concept art that was created for Sam Raimi's box office juggernaut, Oz: The Great and Powerful. The artwork was created by Dylan Cole and Daphne Yap.

Concept Art By Dylan Cole

"Here is a concept painting I did of the Emerald City for OZ: The Great and Powerful. I started with a 3D base the did a ton of painting on top. A lot of the look for the courtyard area was established by Jonathan Bach and set designers."

Concept Art By Daphne Yap

Disney's fantastical adventure "Oz The Great and Powerful," directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum's beloved character, the Wizard of Oz. When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he's hit the jackpot—fame and fortune are his for the taking—that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone's been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity—and even a bit of wizardry—Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful Wizard of Oz but into a better man as well. The film lands in theaters March 8, 2013!

And it all ended up looking like a bunch of fake CGI bullspit.

I was fine with some of the CGI, such as Finley & China Girl & certain other parts, but I would have to agree that it was way too much at times & took away from the experience. I would of liked to have seen more practical elements in the effects department.

Really cool concepts, Especially the trees!

The movie was okay, great effects but the acting was awful. The best Oz thing I've seen lately is a book called DA YELLER BRICK ROAD.
