Paper Cut Out Effect in Adobe fresco

In today’s tutorial we will learn to create this paper cut out effect or 3D pattern in Adobe Fresco. If you are new to Fresco, don’t forget to check out my Fresco playlist on YouTube. 

Let’s get back to the pattern, while this pattern is pretty easy to create in Procreate, it is a bit of work in Fresco. I had to come up with innovative ways to make this as simple as possible. 

So what’s the one thing that makes this possible in Fresco? Selection tool!

We will first create a pattern based on circles and learn the entire process to do it. Next, we’ll learn how to expand this skill to create patterns with rectangles and brush selection tool. 

As usual, I have a color palette for you guys. In fact, I have more than one color palette, download them here:

We will also learn to create the following patterns:
