Perfume-sixth image

This is the last image from the Perfume series.

Illustrations for 'Perfume: The Story of a Murderer'

These are 1-5 of the 6 images i created to illustrate Patrick Suskinds novel.
Due to the religious undertones of the book, i decided to create these stained glass window-esque pieces. After designing the scene and drawing it on paper, i traced it onto a black sheet of card. Then I cut out all the shapes in between the lines, and stuck different coloured and textured paper over the gaps on the underside.
These where then lit from behind and photographed.

(the last image will be in the next post)

It was quite a tedious process, the first two images taking a good few days to work out where to cut and what paper to use, but overall im very pleased with the results and will definitely look into using this way of working in the future.
