    Painted Papercuts... good idea, or bad idea?

    Just 3 works for you to take a look at.
    1st one's a personal piece, 2nd and 3rd
    were done on commission (postal cards
    and poster for an indie short film).

    I'm especially interested in your thoughts
    on these, because I'm still guessing if this
    papercuts/watercolour trick seems to have
    enough appeal/potential to maybe use it
    again on more complex pieces.

    Thanks.

    Oh yes, you should definitely continue using this technique. The third is my favorite. Great concept and execution. Well done!

    One thing though, did you intend for the wrinkled paper? I actually like it because I think it adds to the piece as a whole BUT wrinkled paper tends to look unprofessional in my opinion.

    People did like it: it served alright to the mood of the film, as some sort of children's tale gone wrong... but it wasn't intentional and it bothered me, indeed; I'll have to try controlling that much better. Thanks.
