Cutout Layer Art.. This is the latest art technique I’ve discovered. I used a free trial of Corel Paintshop Pro X6 to create the cutout art, by choosing a combination of settings, I get a wonderful topography look. When applied to the appropriate layout, preferably a simple portrait, I get a fantastic layering effect with a differential of color light and shape. The portraits with muted earth tones work best for me, makes skin tones look marvelous too. I will stick with this technique until my Corel Paintshop Pro X6 trial is over, thus creating a limited series. Corel Pro doesn’t have the sizing and print options I prefer but when using it to size for print, I get a smaller file with lots more pixels. I miss the print preview and wonder if I am doing it all right. My choices for CMYK are confusing, I would like to go back and forth from RGB to CMYK easily and at will.
There is probably a proper name for this type of art. I call it cutout-art because I have no other name. I have never seen other artwork that is similar so not sure what to call it. If you do, let me know 🙂
