Hi everyone! I wanted to share another paper cutout ATC experiment with you - I'm practicing my card making skills before I jump into the ATC swap Smiley


I like how this turned out, though I might think about doing the cutout portion outside of the Dragon instead of inside if I ever do this one again.

I also wanted to share a watercolor ATC I recently finished - its a face study (I have trouble with perspective and proportion with regards to figure drawing):

I really adore your cutout ATC's! The dragon is amazing. I feel like I'm looking into a volcano or something. (Also, he kinda looks like Charizard Tongue)

Oh my gosh!  I didn't even realize that until you said Charizard!! How funny is that?!

And thank you so much! Smiley Can't wait till I can get my swap on!

The dragon card is awesome. Love those layers within, and the elaborate white outline makes it all stand out.

 When I looked at the thumbnail of the dragon I thought the white part was cut out. The way you did it was really cool!

I've never seen an ATC done the way you did that dragon before, and I really like the look (kind of like a topographic map).  "Dreams" reminds me of Nei from the Sega Genesis rpg Phantasy Star II.  Excellent pair of cards!
