White Shadows by hellofromthemoon White Shadows by hellofromthemoon
so this is another one of those obsessively complicated cutout pieces i do - but i made it out of only white paper this time.
it was actually really fun : ]

full view, please : ]

[about 5 inches by 3.5 inches, watercolor paper and glue.]

..and the title i took from a coldplay song. it's really good. [you should listen to it : P ]

The suggestor writes: White Shadows by ~hellofromthemoon made my jaw drop when I saw it. The amount of time and care that went into this is clearly evident when you look at the intricate details. The beak, the feathers, the eye...I can't imagine doing something so painstakingly exact, but she really pulled it off. The lighting is just as well-done; with it, she pulled subtle golds and blues and purples from clean white paper. Incredible. ( Suggested by Aldebarambo and Featured by Myana )

Wow, what is this made of? I made what I call "a poetic song" that truly goes with Coldplay's song "White Shadows". Here's a link if you want to see.

Holy crap. This is incredible work. The textures in this are effing amazing.

Just out of curiosity, how many times did you accidentally cut yourself when working on this?

i used scissors for about half of it and my knife was dull, so i only cut myself a couple times :P

goodness how long did it take you to get to this stage in papercutting?!?!? omg >_< i definately couldn't do that even if all i had to do was cut along the lines! i know i'd stuff it up and make little bits come off in the wrong places and i wouldn't have the patience either!!!

the fact u just used white paper makes it so much more amazing simple in it's colour but definately not simple in design! do you do one with other colours aswell?

oh and yay for coldplay =P

i just have to say that i respect this a lot. i did something kinda similar in college and it took forever. i got an A on it, but it was destroyed shortly after. i was so broken hearted that i went to redo it, but after recalling all of the hours that went into it i knew i'd never have the patience to do something like that again.
what a very beautiful piece of art. i love the composition, depth and expertise you've shown here.
