Batman – Papercut Style

Batman paper cutout illustration by children`s book author John E. Brito

It was time for another cutout illustration. This time….the Batman!

Everything starts with a sketch. I wanted to go for the classic cartoon look. I loved the simplified look from the 90s television show. If you have seen some of my other sketches, you might know that I usually use a lot of ink pen lines in my illustrations. Creating something without lines, just relying on shapes, is a great challenge.

Cutting the needed paper parts:

This kind of cutter is not the best choice when it comes to creating paper illustrations, but it gets the job done. The good thing is: It forces you to keep the shapes simple, which in this case serves the look a lot.

    • Thank you, Paul. It *is* really fun creating these illustrations. Even though some of them take long hours to finish, like Guinevere. And, who knows, maybe I will do something more out of these. At the moment it is just fun and experimentation. Hm, some comic book characters… that does not sound bad.. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. This is super cool. Usually when you pop up in my feed, posts relate to your kids book – this is so different- you are versatile, and that’s pretty cool.
