I've been having a lot of fun making these hangable paper art shadowboxes. Here's my process if anyone was curious~
It's a multistage process staring with creating the layers in Photoshop. This is where I decide how to use the 3D space and select color from the massive selection of card stock paper I've accumulated. Then I export the layers to a die cutting software which cuts out the shapes, though in some cases I just cut the shapes by hand with a knife. Then comes the shading and detail work where I shade the pieces with colored pencil and carefully glue the really tiny bits (like eyes and teeth and letters) with a pin. I adhere spacers made of foam to the layers to assemble the final picture, and lastly place the background in the frame!
I wanted to start by making fun, colorful pieces inspired by our favorite video games like Zelda and Pokemon and see what people thought of my work. The goal is to start working in my own original art done in this style and continue to grow using this artform. Of course I would also love to make custom commissions, just drop me a message and I'd be happy to work with you.
All my artwork is up for sale on www.etsy.com/shop/CuriousFicti… with new pieces to come.
