The Crouching Dragon by Yutaan The Crouching Dragon by Yutaan
Haha, oh man, I thought I'd uploaded this one already!

Cut-paper commission of Zhuge Liang from the most recent Three Kingdoms adaptation. This guy was super cool! Look him up! [link] But he was tough to make; his outfits were all really beautiful, for one thing, and I had to pick just one...

Very lovely! I've always had a soft spot for papercutting with different paper textures and patterns. I've got to ask you, though, how did you manage that transparency? I mean to say that the figure is alone without a background and I'm wondering how you saved it and as what kind of file.

I'm glad you like the piece! ^_^

The file is a PNG, which sometimes can screw up the colors a bit, but are pretty sweet because you can save transparent areas. I just scanned the piece, deleted whatever areas I didn't want - namely, the background - and saved it as a PNG. (Make sure not to flatten it!)

I hope that helps! :)

Well..... depends on the definition of 'free'? 8D;;;;

I am TOTALLY FREE FOREVARS by the first week of September. Before that, it's sort of... partially-free. Final submission deadline for my project is the 21st, but I might be partially free and waiting only on the music or just doing finishing touches to the composition in the evenings between the 18/19th and the 21st. On the 21st by the afternoon, my project will be done but some other people are also coming into town then-- you could join in on the party, but if you want me all to yourself then sometime before the 21st or after the 26th would be possible...

agh complicated D8
