LTC Book Club - Graphic Novels: The Dark Knight Rises
This card was for a Graphic Novel swap. I have always been a fan of graphic novels as well as just a general all around fan of comics. So when this one came up, I had to pick from one of my favorite graphic novels of all time - The Dark Knight Rises. I have been such a fan of Frank Miller's work since I was a teenager and the iconic image from the first issue of this series was so cool. There wasn't much to the carve itself however trying to get the lightening correct was a bit of a challenge. Originally I was just going to stamp the bolt with a separate stamo but the white just didn't come out right on the darker blue card stock and i wanted a brighter white. So in the end i just used a white colored pencil to draw in the lightening. I had a template to try and get it just right to how it looked on the cover.
