Greetings! Proudly announcing our collaboration with Sukoshi Con, a Convention that prides itself on being comprised of real fans of Anime/Manga and its culture, which will be held on Jan. 7-8 in Destin, FL.
Our books will be featured in their Manga library and a super-fun Yaoi Trivia Contest sponsored by the one & only DMI will take place (awesome prizes), so if you happen to be in the area, stop by & enjoy!
For the ones fortunate enough to be in Florida while everybody’s enduring the cold weather, we have a special offer for y’all. The wonderful people at Sukoshi Con generously provided you guys/gals with an exclusive discount code: $5 off your membership pass! Just click here and enter the promotional code: dmpdestin
Stay tuned for further updates regarding Sukoshi Con!!
※ Apron: protect your pimp gear. Stains from cel paint linger forever!
※ Latex Gloves: prevents naturally occurring oils and fingerprints from ruining cels.
※ Dropper: cel paint tends to lose its moisture rather quickly through evaporation so a dropper is essential for reintroducing water into the mixture in small doses.
※ Tracing Paper: used when creating a clean copy from the original rough draft.
※ Other Equipment: 2 pens with varying colors, rag, tissue, & water container
This concludes the section focusing on the materials used when creating anime cels. Starting from the next tutorial, we will begin our quest of conquering the elaborate production phase!
