Dragon by littlepaperforest Dragon by littlepaperforest
A piece for my experimental media class. ♡
This is made entirely out of cut paper.
(It took 3 hours just to place the scales!)
..My favorite from this entire year! :)

Hope you like it! :'D

My goodness this looks great, the fact that you did it the long way rather than cut corners really payed off, this looks stunning well done!!  X)

What kind of paper is it made out of? o_o It looks more like a type of seashell, like the kind they make jewelry out of, you know what I mean?

:iconlittlepaperforest:
littlepaperforest Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2012
Mhm!! It's Japanese/decorative paper, it had pieces of foil in it. :)
It's a little more delicate than regular paper, but still pretty durable. :meow:

i know how you feel about placing the scales, in my art class we had to design a day of the dead skull using only fake flower petals in rows. Very good job ^^
