This thing has a lot going on: a vector skull to begin with (I know…again I need to find the originals), a cutlass (you can’t see it very well on this image, but you can on another with a different blending mode, which I’ll post later), background textures, typography practice, etc.

My thoughts starting out on this project was to make a cool looking label for a fictitious product. I don’t think I succeeded very well with that, but I do think I made a somewhat cool design, so here it is. I played with a lot of different blend modes, transparencies, masking, curves adjustments, and other things.
