Ninja Pop-Up Card Step-by-step (well sort of)
Since got an upcoming summer camp on ninjas and dragons at the Art Center, decided to make a new pop-up card sample featuring a classic ninja and his Tengu master. The characters were sketched with a waterproof felt-tip pen, and the background card was penciled in.
Used some watercolor pencils dry to add a bit of color to the background card.
Felt a more defined outline was needed, so I used a pigment pen to go over all the background elements to make them stand out more clearly. Also colored in the characters.
Finally used some "Yes" paste to glue the characters to their pop-up tabs. Make sure their bottom edge line up flush against the the base of each tab for smooth operation when opening and closing the pop-up card.
Another view of the finished card.
