Watercolor backgroundsssssssss by cheeks-74 Watercolor backgroundsssssssss by cheeks-74

Geez, his is kung-fu mighty!

The approach we were going for for these B7 backgrounds is a water color feel. Like Lilo and Stitch's approach but a little edgier I reckon? This is the route I'm thinking of pushing Bastion's 7.

After Caleb turned these in I was pretty much breathless... (and still am) He had me at "You got mail, kid!"

Like a kid running with scissors, I ran to Photoshop to test some of the characters on top to see if they pop and gel well.

We hope y'all dig it!

Been awhile since I've been here. These are amazingly cool! Digging the colours and the backgrounds a lot. Very Sinspirational (so inspiring it must be a sin! =P) No wonder why you find those Salesman Pete stuff the same way, it seems to resonate well with you.
