Not content with just creating a vector, I also remastered this art from Japanese artist Takashi Murakami.
Murakami was commissioned to create the original as cover art for Kanye Wests music album, Graduation.
For the sake of comparison, here is the original version I used as reference [i.imgur.com/QnVm6hV.jpg].
The image I referenced is sized at 2,009px versus the almost 12,000px one I released.

Anywhere I felt there were imperfections due to compromises of time/resources rather than a personal style, I corrected/improved.
A few examples of improvements are Dropout Bear's watch and gel heels, the pink bear's ribbon line, and the pig's pants.
For several things, such as the Universe City patch, I used the music video Good Morning for reference.
However, nothing could be done about the crest on the far left and right on the arches/portals frieze as there's too much cramped blurry detail to extrapolate what it is.
