Since I am illustrating a theatrical process, I have been thinking about how I am going to make the process look more thespian, a tad more jazzy. I came across this tutorial by Mark Oliver on how to add dimension + vintage grubbiness to plain vectors. It gives a step by step guide. I am not to sure whether I will have the time or the skill to add this to my work, but it is inspirational nonetheless. i love how it makes the vectors look like bygone stage settings, which ties in well with the aesthetic I am trying to achieve. It also brings the vintage look to machinery and contraptions, which is exactly what Houdini’s UPD was like.
