Hey, this turned out really well! Nice job on a new technique and I love the cool page he's on. Great textures and cool idea!

This looks great, man! I like the new style you went with. A perfect likeness of the big bird whose name I don't remember. This is the first post since the Alligator King that didn't make people cry. Nicely done, sir.

I always applaud pushing the boarders of convention, be it concept or content. This turned out really awesome. Nice textures... superb.

Ahh, sweet memories of the lanky yellow bird suit. This guy practically raised me until I was 5. Cutouts! Fun idea. It looks fantastic!

Good weekend for the people of Toon Club.

Nathan this is sweet! But be honest did you really cut paper, or is this built in Photoshop? Either way it looks awesome. I recognized the big guy the instant I layed eyes on him. 'Course he's pretty hard to miss, being over 8' feet tall and yellow will do that.

Your Birdenstein is awesome, sir. Hats off for your bravery and innovativeness. I agree... Whatever method you used for this, it turned out great!

Fun to do. I think I'll try it again. Big Bird turned out to be a rather boring character choice since he's mostly yellow. next time I'll pick something with lots of variation in texture and color.

"Lots of variation in texture and color." Like a gorilla? Go, King Kong Kut-Out!

Plug: Photoshop is awesome! Again, great work on Big Bird. Can't wait to see your next project.
