Obey Hamsterviel by tymime Obey Hamsterviel by tymime
I didn't intend to do another entry, but this idea suddenly hit me after uploading Zira.
Even if this doesn't win, I really ought to get some sort of "geekiest art ever" prize just for what I put into it:

-Features a villain only in Lilo & Stitch spin-off movies and TV
-In the style of Shepard Fairey
-To contrast his trademark communist reds and and yellows, I use cool green, olive and magenta, which, in terms of color theory, are split-complimentary
-To tie in with the character's ethnic ambiguity (Pythonesque French accent, Germanic-sounding last name, being an alien), I use a Cyrillic-style font (it's not really Cyrillic letters), and Khmer (Cambodian) script in the background
-The logo is made of the letter "h" in a font based off the alien glyphs seen in the movies
-Cropping things off the edge is something I learned in my advertising design class

So enjoy the product of my pop culture-addled brain!

The texture was made with a pack of really neat Photoshop filters called Mister Retro Machine Wash. It basically has every conceivable wear and tear effect you could want.
I used several of them here, to give it a look of printing plates getting a little dry on ink... or something like that, I'm not sure what technique I was thinking of. But at any rate the filters are flexible.

It turned out GREAT! Where did you get those filters?
