Water and Blade by Yutaan Water and Blade by Yutaan
Aw man so the lovely creators of the beautiful webcomic Ianua ( www.lesserkeystudios.com/ianua… ) are the biggest sweethearts in the world and keep commissioning me to make cut-paper pieces for them of their EXTRAORDINARILY BEAUTIFUL character designs (found at *ianuae) and I always get SO PUMPED when I get to do them and break out all my paper and print out copies of the previous ones I’ve made for them to see if I can use any of the same papers so the pieces will look nice next to each other and it’s AWESOME and this is the latest one I did, so excited, I WAS LOOKING FORWARD TO MAKING THIS DUDE FOR YEARS, I LOVE HIS DESIGN SO MUCH LOOK AT HIS PERFECT FACE HIS LONG SLEEVES HIS GRADIENT HAIR, FFFFFWAH~

It is so amazing how to can take like scrapbook paper and create a whole new piece of art with it. You are very talented and should continue doing this style of art!! I think that the "Water and Blade" is my favorite of your pieces because it holds this honor bound essence to it and the composition is just incredible. The circular motion of the water and his robe leads the viewer's eye around the picture. Also, the layering makes it have more of a 3D effect. Needless to say, LOVE IT!!!!

Oh my goodness, thank you very much! I'm so glad you enjoy my work, and this one in particular. So flattering! :hug:

I love doing cut-paper work, so I'll certainly continue to make art in this style. I hope you'll enjoy my future works as well.

The layers in his clothes and the gradient in his hair are really nice. What kind of patterned paper do you use? Is that origami paper, or something like scrapbook paper maybe?

Thank you!
I actually use almost any kind of paper that I can find! I like using origami papers, which cut easily, but I also use lace, ribbon, cloth, whatever seems like it will work. :) (Although there have been a few attempts to use materials that just fail horribly, haha.)

Very cool.  I'll have to check out the webcomic.  Excellent flow and sense of movement, despite the fact that all he's doing is sitting there...  What kind of skill is that?  Magic?

Impressive as always.

It's an excellent comic, I can't recommend it highly enough! (Not only is the art wonderful, the story is shaping up to be very intriguing as well!)

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