Luminary: Badge I made for Frisket. Original sketch is by Frisket.
Frisket: Behold! Teh cute!
Luminary: Indeed! :)
The badge is 3" X 4". I made the background in photoshop and printed it on photopaper. Then I used a black technical pen and acrylic paints on an acetate transparency for the character and name. When I was done I overlaid the transparency on the background then put it in a badge holder. The end result makes it look like a cartoon cel. One of the things I like about it is that the background can be swapped out at any time as it's a separate piece. :) Right now I have a "jungle" type background as Frisket will be wearing this to NakamaCon 2011 to go with their jungle/safari theme this year.
The actual badge looks more 3 dimensional than what you see here. The character and the name really pop out on the real thing, but it's just not something I can pick up with the scanner.
