Do you remember the 90s TV show Buffy the vampire slayer, created by Joss Whedon? As a teenager, I loved the series because it featured a cool new monster every week, like back in the days (first seasons) when The X Files were still cool. And when I was thinking about creating a new cutout illustration, I thought: why not Buffy?
Just in case you are wondering now, here is a little fan-video created by thedothatgirl:
I believe that it is extremely important that you work on your own projects even when you have little to no time. The last weeks have been very busy, as I am working as a freelancer again and the current animation project has a huge workload. Once everything is done, I am sure that it will look cool. But this is mainly the reason why I am late again with my blog post.
So back to Buffy. As with all the cutout illustrations, it starts with a quick sketch in one of my sketchbooks. I tried out a few ways to draw her face with different levels of abstraction.
Then on it goes cutting the needed pieces.
Cutting some strands of hair…
I guess that you already get an idea of how it will look like once it is finished.
So… have a nice weekend and I wish you that you can make some time for your projects. 🙂
