That's my newest piece of art. I love chiyogami paper and well origami paper in general because they're so diverse and very pretty. I'm planning on buying the more intricate ones and making special edition origami dolls. Although the above art looks simple it took me upwards of 4 - 6 hours to make. I had the original design out in pencil where I cut it out on a transparent plastic. Slowly I cut the details with the X - ACTO knife and boy did that take so long and my fingers were hurting. I used white acrylic paint and painted it on and outlined it in black. I really like how it turned out... bright... colorful and a twist of the manga/anime style drawings I usually do. I'm planning on making a huge intricate one for an art auction in July but haven't gotten the huge piece of white paper I need.
Until next time... Chibi Girl says byebye!
