Peacock Feathers

Hey everyone! Nicky here 🙂

I am pleased to say that my digital painting skills are starting to improve. From watching endless amounts of tutorials and figuring out the buttons on my tablet (Finally) I think I’m getting the hang of it 🙂

Check out my peacock that I drew recently:

Also, I submitted my peacock to Threadless, an online site for t-shirt designs, and is now in the process of voting. If I get enough votes, Threadless will fund it so people can purchase it!

So, follow the link below and vote!

DIY Paper Cut-Out

Dragon Paper Cut-Out

This is a project which requires lots of patience and slow movements. I’m not that great with exacto knives, although I can say that I have quite a steady hand, I tend to go either too slow or too fast. This may someday result in a mistaken cut in a piece of paper or even my hand, but let’s hope that doesn’t happen.

Get These Things:

  • exacto knife
  • white bristol paper
  • coloured paper
  • scissors (if you no longer want to use the exacto knife)

Step 1:

Draw a design onto the paper. Basically anything that looks good as a silhouette.

Step 2:

Use your exacto knife and carefully cut the design. Go slowly, and always place your hands behind the blade’s direction to avoid cutting any fingers.

Step 3:

Once the image is cut, place coloured paper behind so the image stands out. Use a stick of glue so it is secure.

And voila!

Now all that is needed is a frame and a wall to hang it!
