After a lot of asks and some flabbergasted tags about this post I made yesterday, I decided to throw a quick tutorial together on the steps I took to make some semi-real looking paper cut out art in SAI! Hope this clears it up and helps some others out who want to try this!
Tried more Junji Ito-styled drawings, although the second one doesn’t look like it at all.
A Phoebe had a run in with a Madame Defarge, though. RIP
An explanation of what radians measure: the angle in terms of the radius curved around the circle.
holy fucking shit, my entire education has just clicked.
I love seeing things click for other people (especially in math). That instant exhilaration is the reason math and science are fun for me.
Tuesday Tips - STRAIGHT against CURVES
This principle really helps to create shapes and characters with “points of interest”. The straights move the eye towards the areas of curves, bumps and details. I mostly focused on the silhouettes of the shapes/characters, but the same principles should also be applied to shapes and volumes inside the main shape/volume.

In her project “Counter // Culture,” 16-year-old photographer Annalisa Hartlaub captures all the mainstream and countercultural movements that have defined the last 10 decades. The results are a stirring series of portraits that bring life to a century of women, contextualizing how the friction of mainstream and counterculture defined progression.
this is dope
Nicolas Henri Jacob and Jean-Marc Bourgery - Details of the trigeminal nerve, from Complete Treatise of Human Anatomy, 1866
"Forty-one million IQ points. That’s what Dr. David Bellinger determined Americans have collectively forfeited as a result of exposure to lead, mercury, and organophosphate pesticides. In a 2012 paper published by the National Institutes of Health, Bellinger, a professor of neurology at Harvard Medical School, compared intelligence quotients among children whose mothers had been exposed to these neurotoxins while pregnant to those who had not. Bellinger calculates a total loss of 16.9 million IQ points due to exposure to organophosphates, the most common pesticides used in agriculture.”
This “silent pandemic” of toxins is believed to be “causing not just lower IQs, but ADHD and autism spectrum disorder.”
One of humanity’s most ghastly practices ever is the custom of burying people in the foundations of a building in order to strengthen it. This practice was carried out in parts of Asia, Europe, and the Americas. They believed that the bigger the building, the greater the sacrifice needed to be. These sacrifices ranged from small animals to hundreds of people. For example, the crown prince of Ts’ai in China was sacrificed in order to strengthen a dam.
