Birds of a Feather Flock Together
I recently created this piece of art using bright colours and my unique paper craft. There’s a common saying: ‘birds of a feather flock together’, and it inspired me to create this piece and I love how it turned out!
I documented the process of creating this piece so that you can see how I begin my work, and how it all comes together at the end!
Choosing the colours
I create a couple of different concepts that I then add colour to so I can find which colours I feel are the best fit for the piece of art I am creating. Here you can see my numbered sketches with the colour options to help me decide which colours to choose.
Finalising the design
Once I’ve chosen the colours, I need to choose my final design to work with. I’ll look at the designs I’ve created and choose the one I think fits best. Then I’ll create my final sketch which will be used in my final piece.
Once I’ve decided on my colours and design, it’s time to get my paper ready, add any designs I need, and cut out each individual piece of paper to make the piece come to life.
Putting it all together
After I’ve finished cutting out my paper and adding any details in pencil, I then begin layering and sticking my paper down, slowly layering the pieces to make the art 3D, and by the end, I have my final illustration.
What did you think of the process? Did you expect it to take more or less steps to create?
