The Shopkeeper's Abode
This is the entrance to the shop for my shopkeeper character I posted a few weeks ago. The shopkeeper also lives upstairs so I wanted to make the shop entrance double as a home entrance. It's a music shop /slash/ home.
I tried to find a balance between flat and volumetric... I still wanted it to have a vector-ish cutout feel but with a little more space so it's in keeping with the style of my character designs. I opted to get rid of obvious cast shadows to keep it more designy. I messed around with it a bit in Curves and these are two color variations. I think I'm leaning toward the top version. These are pretty much final versions, pending any significant feedback.
