Ghost Trick tribute

A group artwork from June 2011. I am interested in re-doing this.

Description: Yomiel looking fly as hell, with Sissel at his side. A medley of characters and props appear in the background. The negative space is white, with Yomiel’s shadow cutting into it.

There was a different version which was bathed in blue-green light. It was more stylized. I’m so sad I lost it...

Background characters
  • Jeego and Tengo
  • Cabanela
  • Jowd (I bet I was too afraid to draw his face)
  • Lynne
  • Missile
  • Kamila
  • Sissel again
  • Ray
  • Crane and wrecking ball
  • Guns
  • Bicycle
  • Chicken
  • Red flag
  • Donuts and bowl
  • Car tire
  • Fish tank
  • Cogs and gears
  • Sweet potato on a stick

What would I do differently next time?
  • It would be more stylized like in the lost alternate version. (Ooh, how mysterious!)
  • Take inspiration from movie posters, especially Bob Peak
  • Include more characters. I want to include Beauty, Dandy, and Detective Rindge, to name a few. 

Other thoughts
  • It would be cool to draw it in reference to the Ghost World. O m g. An old school VHS vaporwave aesthetic would SLAP. I remember having a headcanon that the story takes place in the 1980s. 
  • The vaporwave CRT screen idea excites me, but I would also love a VHS tape box style as well. 
  • In the spirit of the original and its lost alternate counterpart, I should make two versions of this artwork. The world of the living represented by the vhs tape box. The ghost world represented by old, blurry CRT graphics.
