Jumping off my comment about throwbacks from this week's Photography Wednesday post, I thought I'd pull out a few old illustrations I created in college. At the time, I used to layer different types of paper to create more dimension between the background and foreground. It was a fun method and one I would like to get back to in the close future.
The above image was a commissioned piece. The story I had in mind was about an evil clown who collected the souls of children, harboring them in balloons.

This was an incomplete piece I created for a college class. I can't remember what the premise was for this one, but I did enjoy the construction of women as flowers (not the most original of ideas!).
If I do delve back into this method, I would like to create the base colors on my own rather than use different colored papers. It's something I always had in mind to do, but with taking seven classes per semester, it was difficult to execute the full idea.
Do you have any old techniques/methods you'd like to return to in future art works?
