So grateful you posted this! I am doing a project in design 101 due tomorrow, Yikes!! I basically need to represent symmetrical balance and my teacher taught us to do it similar to the way your tutorial shows minus any digital media. However for this assignment we are using folded tracing paper to get balanced image, which doubles as carbon paper for Bristol paper. Then we use removable tape as a stencil to get the sharp edges on bristol and painting over removable tape stencil with black plaka paint instead.  

Just wondering about the piece of paper in the middle...do you use that for many of your symmetrical balance images? Does that help you get a starting point?  How many blades do you go through on a typical project, say 11X14?

The shape in the middle?Are you referring to the square?If so,did you see the first part of my tutorial?
Here's the first part,gagbagchen.deviantart.com/art/…
I use 1 to 2 blades per piece.

I don't consider this cheating, the sole fact that you took so much time to cut that pattern shows a huge investiment of time and effort on it. Awesome:clap:

I love this!! Such a fab and clever idea, I'm all for a bit of mixed media, I think I may have to give it a go. Although it looks a little fiddly with the cutter, I better get several pieces of paper Lol  :D

thanks, here I would like to share my opinion that you've chosen a tough and a long method to further enhance the color etc with sketchbook Pro, you can do it a lot better in photoshop just filling or changing the hue saturation or selective color options in just few clicks instead of painting or filling with brush.

I only painted it like that as an example,skecthbook has other-much faster ways of painting.

but in the whole process you don't need to paint I think if you've used Photoshop :)

it's interesting you choose to do this traditionally when a vector software would give you more control and accuracy

Thanks for the tutorials. It was an interesting process to read through. But I think it's bit more work switching in the middle of the process from traditional over to digital. You cut out the pattern so you might as well have either painted over the pattern onto a new sheet of paper or paint gunned it on. If you had done it all on computer you could easily correct any mistakes and create symmetry quite easily. That's my opinion anyway.

The cutting process(well for me),is no way fun.
That process is hard,demands intense patience,and focus.
Mistakes will happen.
I guess,that fun part,(again for me)is when I finish the cutting process,and edit the piece.
