I think I need another go round on these. Trying to copy the subject matter too much. Maybe I need to go for a more “cartoony” feel to get the shapes as simple as possible. I still like some of these though. I’m starting to see how these shape decisions really make a difference with the emotions of the image.
Jumped into Procreate for the tracing task. Felt weirdly limiting following the instructions and the preset lines. Tired not to let that bother me and focus on the line weight stuff. Probably chose the wrong brush in hindsight but they both came out okay I suppose. Particular like the sticker affect on the outline version.
