Paper Cut Crab in the Deep Blue Sea

The assignment in my Drawing for Animation class was to make an image from the Deep Sea emulating the style of illustrator Charly Harper. Once I looked at this style what I noticed, besides the breaking things down to simple shapes, was the textures, and that made me think of 3D paper cut art and so that’s the direction I took. I don’t think this would be mistaken for Charly Harper art, but I kinda like it. With a little more time I would have liked to have tried to do this in Maya so that it might look a little better, but instead it’s all in Photoshop.
