Japanese Artist Fills In Their Anime-Inspired Cutouts With Their Surroundings (100 Pics)

This Japanese artist creates paper cutouts that they then fill in using landscapes and the environment around them. The artist named Kotetsu especially enjoys nature backgrounds, but we can also see many architectural designs. Kotetsu’s characters are anime-inspired and they come to life and are filled with color by the many backgrounds the artist uses for them. Pencils or pens would probably not be able to imitate that.

What do you think of this idea? What about the art itself? Tell us in the comments and don’t forget to upvote your favorite artwork! And go show some love to Kotetsu on their social media.

This one is absolutely gorgeous! I love how she’s playing around with a 2-D image and tricking the eye into reading it as 3-D. And how delicate some of those cuts are!8ReplyView More Replies…View more comments#17

It looks like for whatever reason they photoshopped their hand into the picture, as seen by the blurry outline around their hand. They might have photoshopped the drawing over the background as well.0ReplyView more comments#52
