Popup Card: Kirby and the Picnic Surprise
Popup Card: Kirby and the Picnic Surprise
Jul. 2016
Birthday card for my boyfriend.
    I based the theme of the card based around the picnic minigame and end level sequences from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, where events happen with the characters playing around a picnic blanket sharing powerups and snacks. I initially drew am image to see where the figures would be roughly placed from a front perspective. I created a grid system on a 7” x 5” card, and calculated out the grid size of each character.
    After inking and watercoloring the main elements of the card, I began cutting out strips of scaffolding that would aid in folding the characters up with the card. These were measured out with the same initial grid system. Before assembly, I cut out strips and blocked in shapes with Prismacolor markers to create the grass, picnic blanket, and background mountains. The banner was held in place by thread.
Happily Be!
