Ashiok. Private Commission, 2017. Layered Paper and Alcohol Inks.
This layered paper illustration makes use of translucent papers for the skin and hair of the figure. This presented a unique challenge, since translucent paper will betray typical foamcore supports. In the end, a thick vellum was used to reinforce the translucent areas. This provided enough support to lift the elements away from the background while still preserving their translucent quality.
