Pretending to be a Graphic Designer
Here's one I made for Mother's Day. I based the design off of some water lilies carved on the side of an Egyptian temple. The objects are the same color, and I tinted them with different colored lights.
Brazilian bar Donald Duck Jose Carioca and the Arucan Bird dance in, but Mark said it was "too gay" and nobody really got their poses right, so we scrapped it for a more traditional card.
This time around I colored the objects so I wouldn't have a melange of colored shadows in the background. Below (I think) the view of the camera, I used green and white lights against a few triangle shapes to imply a forest background. Making the treble clef was particularly difficult because I imported it from InkScape, and converting it from curves to a mesh object introduced some holes in the object I had to manually go through and close up -- otherwise it would have had some funny looking holes in it where there was no outside facing the camera.
