Do you have any tips on how to start papercrafting?

My absolute best tip for 2D papercrafting is practice drawing basic shapes for form. Many artists begin illustrations with simple shapes to build their subjects before adding detail.


Papercrafting is devolving your concept back into simple shapes and contours. It’s important to simplify your shapes to be “clusters” if something becomes too detailed. Don Bluth utilized this technique in a lot of his films, especially with hair!
