Wolf again. This one reminds me of my aunt’s dog. The dog’s name was Forty, because well, they bought it for forty pesos 🙂 they also have a dog named sixtyand eighty 🙂 This is to test how detail I can get and what’s the minimun size of the artwork. I’m studying what’s the best ratio of paper thickness vs size of the artwork. I also want to see how much detail I can add before it starts to look weird 🙂 I’m also loving the contrast of lace which looks soft and delicate on a predator 🙂
It’s a Demiguise, guys! I was going to make a Niffler but thought it would be too much, because my country, the Philippines,
Fun fact about owls, they can be such a hoot 🙂 What other animals do you like to see on papercut?
So I’m thinking of starting a series of papercut animals. any suggestion on what I should do next? I used white papers on inner layers. It’s amazing how the shadow made the horns darker.
This was supposed to be just a wolf, but what the heck! 🙂 Maybe I’ll create one more with only just the wolf 🙂 The fur is such a pain to create though. What other animal do you want to see on papercut?
I made this artwork for the new #MagnumCebu . I think you can see the frame artwork at the SM Seaside Cebu starting today. This has been the hardest project that I ever made so far. It’s made of 10 layers of 30×40 inches Bainbridge cold press illustration board. It requires both mental and physical endurance. When I do most of my work, my mind would often wander off until I realize that my work is done. This timeI have to be present because I am using cutter and I am cutting a very thick illustration board. I have to be cautious because I could cut myself any time. I managed to finish the artwork without any cut until the day we document the process on which I accidentally cut myself with one of the layers 🙂 The initial version that was approved was only 5 layers but I thought it would be better in 10 like the ampersand papercut that I made. I was starting to regret it when I finished the first 5 layers but I’m sure that I will not be happy unless I made it the way that I envisioned it. I guess sometimes the body has to sacrifice to fulfill the desire of the heart 🙂 I want to thank @leighpod for bringing me in on this project. I love you and the rest of the MullenLowe team including Hanna, Mel, Roman, Iya, Min and Abby! I also want to thank the client (@magnum -Philippines) for letting me play with this project. Of course this would not happen without @origamidreamer assisting and helping me with making the buffer between each layers. I was really dreading it because I thought it would take me at least a day but we finished it while watching The Abyss … now that’s team-work! I can’t wait to show you the process video of this project! Please take a picture and tag me if you are in Cebu. I forgot to take a picture with the frame 🙂
