I decided to take a new approach to these pieces to switch it up and see what else I could do artistically. I do a lot of cut vinyl work in my graphic designer job and also for my side business, so I decided to take that and create some cool layered vinyl artwork.
I chose these characters based off of some old thumbnail sketches that I had in my sketchbooks. I then scanned them in and reworked them all digitally in Photoshop and then finished the artwork in Adobe Illustrator to create the vector artwork for cutting the vinyl. I am pretty happy with the way that they turned out, but I did learn a lot while creating these. So the next time I make something like this it will definitely make it easier to do.
