Some shots of Hitomi from the Dead or Alive paradise games. Property of Team Ninja (and I think Tecmo)

Couple things:
I hate what I did with her faces in the small shots. My printer didn't go into enough detail for me to get clear lines to work with, so I had to fill in "invisible" lines, and I'm very annoyed with the results.
Also, this is the first time I've ever attempted to paper-cut digital art. Since there are so few "lines" and the lines that do exist are so thin, it's really pretty hard to get the right cuts in without sometimes distorting the original work.

Overall, pretty unhappy with the results, but I'm still posting it because I also spent quite a long time on it and I had to resist the urge to not throw it away.

Hitomi is still awesome!

Hello, hello!

Wow, this one is almost too hot for school. I know you aren't exactly happy with the resolution and the faces on the smaller panels but this still looks like a rocking job over all. The next-to-nothing lines are part and parcel of using digital art for paper-cut. And it's something that I suffer from more often than I care to admit. But still... I'd say you still did a rocking job on it.

If you are interested in doing more cuts based on digital art, I might suggest that you use some kind of graphic manipulation software to increase the contrast a little. It might help you to get where the shadows fall and help you out with some of the "super thin, non-existent line" dilemma.

Either way... well done!

I hadn't thought about manipulating the contrast. I'll try that out from now on, and hopefully my printer will cooperate. Thanks again for the comment, they're always helpful and appreciated!

Don't mention it.
After all, we -are- in this together, right? I hope it works out for you!

It's still great! My printer does that to me all the time too.

It's a shame that I have to limit the scale of what I can do based on my printer, but that's the price to pay for not having a super advanced, expensive machine I guess. Appreciate the comment, thanks!

Well I think you have done an all round slendid job :)

Thank you, I appreciate hearing that. It makes me glad I didn't just throw it away when I was initially angry at it.
