Thank you! I made it by sketching detailed plans on paper and then manually drawing the vector artwork on my computer, everything here is completely my own. Unfortunately the vector artwork isn't available for download or public use.
When I used a laser cutter at Uni it often burned the edges of the wood and could never produce detail such as the antlers on the little deer figure. Did you have to sand the pieces down? Or do you have access to a much better laser cutter than I did?
Thanks! If you look closely, all the edges on this are burnt but I like that as it gives the shapes more definition. I don't do any sanding down except for on the thick plywood on the bottom which occasionally doesn't cut properly, I cant say whether the laser I use is better, sometimes you have to play around with the settings to get a clean finish.
how do you end up with your finalized idea, do you do a layered work in PS, or something of similar nature? and do you cut these yourself or do you have them done somewhere, I really enjoy your style, the fluidity of it is simply inspiring to say the least.
Thanks, I'm glad you like them! These start out as detailed sketches and then I manually trace them into the computer using illsutrator where I can fine tune the artwork and arrange the layers. Luckily for me I have access to a laser cutter at work so I cut them myself.
The contrast aided by the texture and use of shades and tints of brown is beautifully and wonderfully simple and elaborate. The layers help the piece and its focus pop and become animated in such a lovely manner. Very well done. Happy Valentine's Day! <3
