Front View Silhouette Cutting

It had been many times that many people asked me why cant I do a front view silhouette cutting of their portrait, the reason is because in traditional silhouette cutting which very emphasized on the outline of the artwork was hardly tell that is the person’s portrait if they compare the art piece with the real person; because usually not much people having a strong features during the event unless they really make it a big different.

That was what I mean having strong feature front the front view ;p

Silhouette for Couples

Thought cutting 2 persons in one piece of paper is one of the difficult tasks; because you really need to handle the scoring of the portrait size very carefully else the artwork will not be nice eg. One head too big and one head too small, the aiming direction of both portraits in your artworks was different etc.The hair style and the related accessories of the guests, is one of the factor that affect the ‘design’ (which mean how you like to arrange them in you art piece) of the artworks.

Further Detail Cutting

The traditional silhouette cutting is mainly cut the shape of the portrait of the guest, I think if we cut more detail on it, which will be more belonging to paper art area.

Silhouette cutting can be seen it as sort of black and white graphic, but if we do it for performance purpose, professional speaking, we should do it within a minutes; hence within an hour’s event booking, we should be able to produce 35-45 pieces (including put in the plastic bag for the guests.

Down here, I just try to explore further cut in details for the silhouette art works.To do a silhouette for more detail, seems it need more time to decide what type of cutting you are going to do, I talking about just observe and cut in the further detail without and hand drawn steps; that seems need a lot of research, experiments and practices.How to do a silhouette cutting with more details in a shortest timing yet it still looks good, that is the challenge.
