When I took on this commission I thought it would be incredibly simple and easy. But when I showed the client the end result he didn't like it. The Cuphead / 1950's cartoon aesthetic he was going for wasn't present completely and he had issues with the popcorn on top. He wanted it to look more 'cartoony' as well. All of which I thought was ridiculous and felt that the payment didn't match the amount of edits this client wanted to put me through. But I suspended my personal value and decided to complete the project with the necessary edits. Why? Because I had never made an anthropomorphic bag of popcorn before. I decided that my portfolio needed the design and I was being paid to learn how to design like this. In the end it was well worth it.
