Our beloved Dr. Stein <3
I really wanted to put him in a literal "doctor" setting. Then I stumbled upon that beauty of an anatomy stock and had to incorporate it.
The idea behind it is a general idea of doctors being stereotyped as coldhearted or detached, traits which Stein has shown himself to be at times. When someone like that looks at you, are they looking at you as a person or as a purely scientific being (or possible lab rat)?
A personal preference of mine in terms of colors are somewhat muted, almost antique looking, and that certainly shows in my wallpapers. I also added a little extra shading and a little texture on the vector so it didn't look so pasted and plain
I was sad to have to cut off his ear in the standard resolutions.
