This card was an experiment to create an inverse to the previous tri-folds, which used a lot of white space. Though it utilized the same process of sketching and layering a mockup with a lightboard, and transferring to the front and back of 140 CC watercolor paper, the inking stage took the longest. I wanted the tone of the card to feel dark, so I filled in the white space with ink, extending far beyond the lineart of the figures and elements. This way, when I cut the whole 10.5" x 8.5" card out, and then hand trimmed around each figure, the outlines would be black instead of white. The theme was a collage of characters and elements from the game Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask.
