I found these during my daily surf of Imgur and I think that they’re absolutely gorgeous. Coherent as a group, yet each one has design attributes that give you the sense of the Type each Legendary comes from. Plus, the different colored layers reminds me of Roman cameo gems, where the gem carvers cut into striated gems to make their raised layers one color and the background a contrasting shade. Totally wanting one of these awesome pieces of work now!

And, just for fun, some cameos too.
