cutout tutorial thing by egophiliac cutout tutorial thing by egophiliac
THIS IS A TERRIBLY HUGE PICTURE! I'm sorry. I'm really not good at this tutorial thing.

For further reference, I uploaded a PSD of her cutie mark, which you can download here: [link]

The finished picture can, of course, be found here: [link]

the one in the tutorial came from a site with public domain scans (unfortunately I no longer have the link). there's a lot of paper and felt textures here on dA that only require a credit for use, or you can google for public domain ones, or scan/take pictures of paper you have in real life. :) crinkly paper textures work well because they have a very visible texture to them, and messing with the brightness or levels can bring that out even more!

Lots of graphics programs support drop shadow (I know Gimp does), but unfortunately I haven't used them so I can't help with anything but Photoshop.

If all else fails you ca do it manually by duplicating the shape (by duplicating the layer, or selecting it and filling on a new layer, or however you prefer), coloring it to your shadow color, applying a blur, and then placing that layer behind your main shape layer and offsetting it slightly. That takes more work and will be harder to make consistent but it can be done that way. c:

btw, are there certain programs you shouldn't use for this kind of cutout style? I use Corel Essentials 4...

As long as it has layers and some way of applying a drop shadow, it should work!

Well, I use a Wacom Intuos 4 tablet and Adobe Photoshop (the tutorial was done in CS, but I've since upgraded to CS3). Other than those links I'm not sure how I can help you, sorry!
