Also, many many moons ago (I feel old 0_0 ), I made a semi-spook Jeff as well:
@alistercat: Basically I manually draw by hand using color blocking and shape building techniques in a vector based drawing program (in this case, Abby was made in Affinity Designer on an iPad as I am currently learning to use an Apple Pencil, but Jeff was made in Adobe Illustrator with a mouse).
I usually block it out from 3 to 5 color ranges, then from there visually decide what shapes of the figure are darks, mids, and light. From there I just go with my gut (and eye squints) and have fun with the pen tool.
Takes a while to do, especially depending on the level of detail I want to do, but once the shapes are in place, color choice then is what comes next, which at times can be quick or long.
If you want to see other stuff I've done in similar style, swing by my portfolio sometime and check the illustration section
@quasiconundrum: The funny thing is that years ago when I started this design process I was focused on them being for shirts. I even learned how to screen print in my bathroom to get some of my prints on projects of mine. It's been so long I think I barely remember most of how to screen print now lol
