yeahhhhh i'm not sure whether this 2d adaption of my pineapple shader works for me, but I'd really like to make some sort of squarey pineapply vinyl sticker

Close-ups of the laser engraving on the bottom of the pieces (they are symmetric so I could put them on upside down as well). Tiny little crosses!
