EDIT:

EDIT 2
I'm open to commissions for such portraits. Please see my journal entry here [link]
/EDIT 2

This is an entry created for the "Discovering Contest" in :iconwe-love-paper:
My first entry was not satisfactory enough and prompted me very much for improvement. So I chose a subject(I was browsing through DevArt and this one caught my eye [[link]]) Thanks to :icondgato: I was able to complete this one.

It took me over 20hours and I had to do it in one sitting coz pieces once cut, had to be used before I forget where to put them. Even with just black and 2 shades of gray, it had over 100 pieces (small and big). The worst part was the hair on the left side. 80% of black in that is just one piece. Took me 90mins cutting just that one piece. The eyes are those which I enjoyed most cutting. However, I ended up with what is one of my masterpieces and big giant head ache.

Great gallery man!! Can't believe your patience to cut each part twice. It kills me to cut once, as I just stack layers. Amazing!!

Congratulations on the daily deviation!

Beautiful job on the piece. It is instantly recognizable and the texture you created in her hair is excellent. The limited color palette was a wise choice, very effective for the image.

Actually, I was skeptic about the color palette when I was making the portrait. Only after I finished it I was satisfied..

That can't be cut paper. It's just too perfect to be. (This is a compliment, not being mean.)

You definitely deserve that DailyDeviation due to the beauty of this piece (or pieces ;P).

This is definitely a +fav.
