Fan Cel project gets into gear
last modified: Sunday, September 09, 2007 (3:21:43 PM)
This week I was excited to receive an email from an artist who hadn't been in touch for a long time.

A year ago I messaged her regarding ideas for a fan cel commission I had been planning and nothing came of it. I was informed she'd moved on from this interest and was busy with other things; that's fair enough but left me a little disappointed.
Another artist was keen to help out but I didn't feel she had quite the skill level I was looking for so the project went on hold.

Out of the blue my first choice artist contacted me "out of guilt" and said she could work on my COMMISSION [she thought there was one cel to paint] inbetween her busy work life. After chatting she agreed to do both cels and I'm really looking forward to it! ^__^

Both should be completed within 6 weeks and all I care to say at this stage is that one will be from Ninja Scroll and the other is an Angel Blade hanken-type image.
She'd like to feature the Ninja Scroll cel in her tutorial so it'll get some extra online coverage in the coming months.

This is a great opportunity to have some art from scenes which I could never hope to obtain directly from the original anime. Plus, I get to direct how they turn out with a little personalisation thrown in ;)
The cels will appear on this webpage when they're done.

That sounds like an exciting project! I, too, am getting a fan cel made by an older fan artist (as her final piece!), which I''m very excited about. Unfortunately, she''s estimating 6 months for mine. *yikes*

I look forward to seeing these pieces of yours in a few weeks. :) :) :)

Well, the main hanken-like cel is coming on brilliantly. I''ve seen 6 pictures of the early production stages and the character was half completed. That was nearly 2 weeks ago so she may be done about now. I''m not hurrying the artistic process so whenever the work''s complete is fine by me.

That''s awesome :)
I''m almost ready to share my drawings, most of them, based on Mr Umetsu''s work. It would be interesting to see them printed on to an acetate and handpainted by an artist!
