So after much thinking and sketchbook doodling, I decided that my next papercut will be another owl. I know I've done an owl before (see my Twitter button on the right of this page) but this one's a little different - and also quite a bit larger than my first one. This means I can get in a lot more detail - which as you all know, is definitely right up my street. For some reason I always have huge doubts during the drawing stage. With this one, it was the flowery pattern in the owl feathers that I wasn't sure about. However, I didn't change it and once I started cutting it, I reckoned it looked as I hoped it would and I'm glad I didn't change it. Here's the first few work-in-progress pics.
