Alucard by Solinni Alucard by Solinni
I have been wanting to try papercutting (or what ever it is called) and this is actually second picture I have made using this technique (first one is buried somewhere into my tumblr). I bought an actual hobby knife, and seriously it was so much easier to use than box cutter. I also got wiser from my first time and used glue stick instead of liquid paper glue .____.;
...Somehow this turned out to be more colourful than I intended .______.

I bought some paper stacks from sale few months ago and mom gave me 2 bags of old wallpapers. I weighted the bags and there is about 11 kilos of paper, so I'm not gonna run out of paper anytime soon. : D

I recently played Symphony of the Night for the first time, and man was it good. Of course I first had to unlock it from Dracula x Chronicles and after 3 days of teeth grinding and tears of frustration I managed to get it. I didn't even attempt to play Dracula X Chronicles after unlocking SotN, I was ridiculously bad at it :'D




EDIT// Thank you so much for the DD <3<3<3<3


EDIT2// Yes I have seen Gankutsuo (I watched it like week ago and I really loved it), so I do know that the animation style is very similar to papercutting. You people should watch it too, it looks gorgeous and it has really interesting plot.

Gankutsuo has an amazing art style.  It's a lot like Mononoke, if you haven't seen that one.  This is fantastic though! He just looks so. . . noble. *fangirls* Congratulations on the DD!

...I know you're tired of these comments but orz this reminded me I never actually finished Gankutsuo... I really ought to go do that.

 

Nevertheless, this is a really fascinating piece; I wasn't aware that papercutting could be done like this. I'm not very artistically literate, I'm afraid >.>

Beautiful. Alucard was a pretty innovative character in how he contrasts to the typical Castlevania protagonist with that sheer elegance. I'm also pretty impressed you did this with traditional media.

If you're interested, the anime version of The Count of Monte Cristo looks really similar.
