Starpaper Horse by Starhorse Starpaper Horse by Starhorse
What it says on the tin.

Did this several years ago from a cool picture of a galaxy I found somewhere. Normal scissors, pasted onto a craft paper envelope with a glue stick. I think I was on my mission in Uruguay when I did this--I found it in a journal from around that time a few days ago.

Bit out of the norm from my usual uploads, but there were a couple years (around sixth grade or so) when I did like, several of these cut-out animals or characters a day, including a seven foot mural that got put up in my elementary school's library that had every greek legend I could think of on it. Cut out of printer paper, of course, probably when I was supposed to be doing math.

I've been feeling this urge to cut up things coming back recently, and I'm feeling like it'll probably be a Thing again within a few years if it's going where I think it is.

[EDIT]sorry for update spamming, but it's a fairly substantial difference... I digitally added a border to it with complimentary desk clutter, so now it can fit in with my Media Horses series, which has its own gallery folder now :) While I was at it, I gave it a tiny bit more texture and added two pieces to the tail because it was bugging me. The original can still be seen at my blog: erikastudio.blogspot.com/2013/… so...most of the horse is actual cut paper, the border is digital.

(Thanks for the stock, guys!)

I've always loved stars--there's just something alluring and unexplainable about them that makes them even more beautiful than they already are

I think there's something about the time reserved for math homework that really brings on artistic inspiration...

I hope you do more of these. This is wonderful! :dance:

Thanks, I hope to do more too, maybe with more than one layer of paper? And an exacto knife instead of craft scissors.
