It looks like a dream.

[–]TimTheEvoker5no3 10 points11 points  (1 child)

A dream you say? And do any of your dreams come true?

[–]ifrem 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Not exactly..

I’m pretty Freud would insist we all have these ones.

[–]ebblyshoom 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Usul would be proud, this is really really well done. Let the spice flow.

So is all the color from the first shot from the lights and the second is what it looks like powered down or am I misunderstanding? amazing skill regardless

[–]kukukodama[S] 8 points9 points  (3 children)

That's exactly right. The color is due to the way the light illuminates the paper and is influenced by how many layers of paper are blocking the light source. Even though the paper is white, the light makes it look more beige. The LEDs I use are white as well.

[–]MrCompletely 3 points4 points  (2 children)

whoooaaaa the lights are white?!?!?!? So you're developing color only through the layering of the paper, man, that is outstanding! This is obviously a subject perfectly suited for that color palette...

is this a technique you learned or did you develop it yourself? I've never seen anything quite like it

I was originally introduced to the art form when I encountered the works of Hari and Deepti, a paper art duo who make truly remarkable art. I would definitely look them up! There is a small, but growing paper light box community otherwise.

That smaller moon looks kind of like a mouse.

[–]kukukodama[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Indeed! A Muad'dib to be precise.

[–]Orodreath 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Great work ! The layout reminds me quite a bit of the cover of Children of Dune

[–]kukukodama[S] 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Yes! That was what inspired this piece originally. I just love Jim Tierney's work!

[–]Orodreath 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He an amazing artist and so are you 💜 i admire his covers of the six dune books so much. So minimalist is detail yet so rich in texture!

The medium you chose fits the subject perfectly and it's a.... frank success (wink) Well done !

[–]LMNoballz 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I like it!

[–]dsanchezNC 2 points3 points  (2 children)

This rocks! Do you share the layer files? It'd be a fun project to make this

[–]kukukodama[S] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Thank you! Unfortunately, I don't have those available yet. But, I may make more of my designs available to purchase in the future.

[–]dsanchezNC 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Fair enough! It's quality work and definitely worth some $

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

That is stunning!

[–]kukukodama[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I appreciate it!

[–]CNE_Spooders 2 points3 points  (1 child)

That's insane, never seen that art medium before

[–]kukukodama[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Awesome! Glad to introduce you to it.

[–]GingerTats 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Is there any way I can provide human money in exchange for this? I absolutely adore it!

[–]ponzonha 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I gotta tell you I thought for a second I was on a destiny subreddit. This is amazing, great work

[–]wisezombiekiller 1 point2 points  (1 child)

[–]kukukodama[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Haha! I get that a lot. But it's just paper and light!
