Tip Manufactures a Pumkinhead by hwilki65 Tip Manufactures a Pumkinhead by hwilki65
'During the evening, by the light of the fire in the kitchen, Tip carefully rounded all the edges of the joints and smoothed the rough places in a neat and workmanlike manner. Then he stood the figure up against the wall and admired it. It seemed remarkably tall, even for a full-grown man; but that was a good point in a small boy's eyes, and Tip did not object at all to the size of his creation.'

Tippetarius right after he finished constructing Jack Pumpkinhead. As of yet, Jack hasn't been clothed. Tip is only admiring his handiwork.
Since this is in the Gillikin Country, I painted the picture using almost completely purple and brown.

Thank you very much! I wanted everything to be very purple. You may not be able to tell, but even Jack has purple in his color (I mixed small amounts of lavender with the wood-color).
I thought that Tip probably wore Mombi's old clothing; so, one of her old hats, an old vest and scarf, her socks and boots, and she probably altered one of her skirts into a pair of pants for him. I don't think that Mombi would want to bother about Tip's clothing, so he would always get her old hand-me-downs.

"I thought that Tip probably wore Mombi's old clothing"
this idea is wonderful, That means that he has always used women's clothing, even as a boy, is a really symbolic detail. you have to save that idea for your projects of oz

I really hadn't thought of that, so I'm glad that you brought it up! I also thought that Ozma might carry on wearing Tip's clothing, even after assuming her role as Princess. Perhaps, on days when she isn't preoccupied, she would wear Tip's clothing and wander around.

I know I've said it before...but you really should make your own versions of the books with your art style!
