I was commissioned last month to make two Rick & Morty jars. The task was left open ended at first and after talking to my client we came up with a Mister Meeseeks jar, and an Ants-in-my-Eyes Johnson jar.
I tackled Meeseeks first. I knew I wanted to do the Meeseeks box and then a variety of Mr. Meeseeks around the bottom. For reference for the non-fans out there:
The fist version of the jar came out thusly:
Doing the 'box' graphic as a round lid proved to be difficult and the final version here is the product of 3 trials that ended up in the garbage. I also wasn't 100% satisfied with the characters around the body once it was done, so went ahead and produced what my second idea had been from the get-go:
The box top is amazingly easy once you are working on the 5th one, heh.
The one I love the best and really wanted to keep (seeing as I am also a Rick & Morty fan) was the one based on this unfortunate soul:
My original thought was to have the bottom section appear as if he was on fire too (something that happens later in the episode) but I learned that I suck at making fire so left it alone. Et voila!
Super love this guy!
