I could do this.. supply a cutout that is.. What format would it need to be in to save the transparency.. PNG? Or just supply the cutout within a PSD.. Hrmm
Anyway, I mentioned the below project briefly on IRC on Friday.. I just completed it:
This was supposed to be a valentines gift to a dear interstate friend of mine.. She took me to my first game of soccer and it was to be a thanks. However, I did things at the last minute as always and I printed it out on really thick paper.. I couldn't bend the card properly and it was a well right disaster. So I scrapped it and had to apologised to her.
I'm seeing her again today (this time we going to the rugby league
) but this time I printed it out on a couple grades thinner paper.
Never shall I make this guy again.. The way I designed how to join the piece that bends around the sponge part was horrible.. The paper bent no problem & I managed to do it but by golly it was frustrating.. Also the hands are pretty weak.. I fear the fingers will bend and tear off if accidently handled roughly.. There is already a bend on the pinkie of the left hand.. Also it is hollow and being a thinner paper it felt like it would implode if handled.. so I fixed up a box made out of card and slipped it inside.. It now feels pretty rigid and solid... I will be spammed for those last few words...
Also I made this guy during work..
He's awesome.. so tiny and he flies like a dream.. He glides effortlessly until he runs out of momentum and then like a bird shot out of the sky, he kamikazes to the ground.. epic..
