These are rejected designs I made these for a freelance gig. The client fell too much in love with the reference material that he wanted them to be almost exactly the same, walking near the fine line of copyright infringement. tsk tsk.
They see something they like, but they know that they can’t use it directly, but yet they want something exactly like it. So even though our vision for this was different and more interesting, sometimes it’s best to just give him what he wants, get paid and be done with it.
