Passing of the Demon Star by Yutaan Passing of the Demon Star by Yutaan
Li Chang Ge and Ashina Sun from Song of the Long March

This was a complicated commission, but DANG was it fun! The art in this series is just gorgeous, and Chang Ge has a really interesting character arc so far.

[EDIT] Oh my goodness, thank you so much for the DD! I'm very flattered! :happybounce:

Passing of the Demon Star by Yutaan

Yutaan's selection of colours and textures brings a stunning dimension to already highly skilled papercut pieces. ( Featured by cakecrumbs )

Thank you! :) It's a shame the series isn't very well known, right? It's so beautifully drawn!

I just realized but these pictures must be so shiny in real life due to the chiyogami paper :o it doesn't really show up in the scans when I do it.

They can get quite shiny! Most of my stuff nowadays had some sort of metallic or glitter element to it, which - you're absolutely right -  doesn't translate very well to the scans. It's too bad....

It is, but I guess that's just an even better reason to buy them and enjoy them in real life!

It's definitely one of the best series I came across this year, after I read it, I really wondered why I put off on reading it
Yes! even if the story was bad,(which it isn't) the art alone makes it worth it :heart:

Having only recently started doing some papercutting, this is even more impressive. Despite the complexity of the character designs, I love that you still managed to create movement and life in them. Great work, and congratulations on the DD! C:

Thank you very much! I'm flattered you like the piece. :) Incorporating movement and gesture into papercutting work is always a little hard for me - if I'm not careful, the figures come out looking very stiff - so I'm especially pleased you think it worked well in this piece.

You're very welcome! C: That's something I struggle enough with in drawing, so I can definitely appreciate how much effort must go into creating lively papercutting work. Looking through your gallery, it seems like your work is all so beautifully and expertly crafted~ :D

:iconyutaan:
Yutaan Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2014
Yes, gesture can be difficult to capture. Keep fighting the good fight to get lovely, gestural pieces! :D I find that doing quick drawings can loosen you up and get figures looking more gestural.

And thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoy my work!
