You don't need new cels to have a better gallery
last modified: Monday, July 16, 2007 (8:07:35 PM)
So I've spent the last 8 weeks going through my collection and selling off the pieces that I am no longer in love with, selling off duplicates or characters and cels that I picked up for a good deal but never cared much for.

Then I re-scanned all of my beautiful remaining cels and got around to scanning and uploading some of the cels that I'd not gotten around to. I lovingly created the best thumbs I could. I also carefully sorted my cels in the best and most logical order that I could think of.

The He-Man cels in particular I am proud of, I even scanned the pan cels (wide backgrounds) and stitched the images together... it was a learning process.

Anyway I'm extremely proud of how the gallery looks now and am hoping that my rating goes up as a result. Even if it doesn't though I'm feeling pretty pumped about how it's all looking.

Next step will be to go through each cel and find a matching screencap from the episode that they came to and add that to the sketches. And I will put better descriptions of each cel there too.

All of this done over a period where I've spent the least amount of money on my collection in memory!

Yowzas who'd have thunk it!

Awesome job!
I know it''s a lot of hard work, but it''s worth it in the end. ^_^
I''m personally trying to keep updating my hoard of genga sets I bought a few months ago. I''ve been trying to do it once a week, but get so caught up in other things. And it all takes so much time to do the scanning, merging, animating. It''s exhausting for the really big sets. O_O

But anyway, just wanted to say Great Job! And I understand the work involved in getting things spiffed up, and Good Luck finding all the screen caps! It''s time for me to go back through Ranma and try and find my cels I bought since the last time I did that. ~_^

He-man is my favorite as well, Mark...and with your scans of the cels, well...they are just incredible...
