Faces Are Scary
Faces are scary things to cut. You may have noticed that most of my papercut figures are seen from behind or the faces are full silhouettes. That is because I am intimidated by all the little details that come with a face. If you don't get them right it ruins the look of the whole piece. It so much easier to just avoid it all together. However, some days I tell myself that I shouldn't give into my fears but should take a leap and try it. This is my latest attempt. I don't think it is too bad , but I should keep working on it. It helps to have some strong shadows on the face otherwise, it gets sticky deciding what shadows to leave on and what to take off to get the results that I want. Like I said before, it is SCARY.
