Easily the most time-consuming section to cut out has been these background "grass" pieces. Each of these took about a week to finish. (I've had to take a lot of breaks & have been icing my arm while working on the largest one.) Here are two sections that were finished, while the third is not quite done. I've been very intentional in the direction that I've been cutting it out, since I want any residual chatter to follow a certain direction.
