That's amazing!!!!

I am truly jealous and super happy that you got to meet Mr Shinkai.

Feel free to post your own art work on this site. I'm sure we'd all love to see the fruits of your time with Mr. Shinkai.

That's just awesome.

Very cool! I'm curious how does Shinkai and his animators go along animating the backgrounds? Does Shinkai paint over the photo's he takes and manipulates them? Are the backgrounds drawn out in some sort of key frame then painted? 3-d programs? Most likely a little bit of all haha, still curious tho  Very Happy

hello dudes!! Thanks for the replies!!

this is a link to the background I did with the kind supervision of Mr. Shinkai:
http://angryookami.deviantart.com/art/Eternal-Palace-77098138
And yes, Mr. Shinkai's way of drawing background is to take many photos, check the one most beautiful, and then DRAWING over it, he does not use filters or so, but only photoshop brush tool. Somebody could say it is easy, but you just try to do it and see how difficult to eliminate the (Realism) in the Pic and make it more 2d, I think this is the magic.
BTW few times mr. Shinkai use 3dcg as a base for his BGs, but just a few..
I will try to post other photos, and most important, some photos of the little humble celebration we did for Mr. Shinkai's Birthday (It was last Saturday)

Happy Birthday Shinkai Sensei!!

Hmmm by no way would that be easy, first off you need to make it more 2-d. But as well you need to change the color compossition very heavily! Expetually wih Shinkai all his backgrounds have this surreal feeling which is just beautifle!

Very nice picture angry, I'm going to give this type of thing a shot. I really love takeing photographs of the things around me for some reason lol.

By the way what's your comic about? I find it very cool that I'm talking to a profetional right now haha! What's the process you go through to make a comic? What format is it in?

Admin, Junpei, and Menasha.. thanks for ur words  Embarassed ..
Menasha, My comic story is a Super-robots comics, u can see some samples in my dA account, Maybe I'll upload other pages later.
My process is traditional: Concept, Layout (Page sketch), then pencils, Ink, then I scan the page, modify the ink/add more ink with Comic Studio, then go to Photoshop to do the colors and balloons+text.

Mmhmm checked out  the 3 pages you had on your deviant, I liked the later one more then the earler submission. The later one seemed to have a nice color composition that worked well together. I liked how it read more as well even thouogh I could not understand!

It feels the text is mor a part of art rather then separete, it makes it alot easier to read that way. With the simple formula of text art text!

Hi The_Emh, thanks!! The honor is mine!!
So, u wanna something deep? well, let's try..

Mr. Shinkai is very quiet, and cute, his personality has the same effect on u as his films. (he's far from being sad) He is very generous, he taught us many of his work secrets and how-tos, which seemed to us as black magic.
He appreciates other people art, and he respects other people very much. If someone asked him a stupid question, he replies seriously and tell a nice answer, adding some extra info to the reply to make the people appreciate the stupid question, it is like turning stone to gold!!
Mr. Shinkai is a very kind person, and he speaks as if he was ur friend, not like a nose-in-the-sky celebrity, though he really is a great celebrity, he can make people love him and respect him -even those who've never heard about Mr. Shinkai- in 4-9 seconds.
I can talk about Mr. Shinkai for the rest of my life, I really believe that meeting him for some time can be a very unique experience for anyone.
I cried before I slept the day before Mr. Shinkai left to UK. I felt I will be missing a real great friend. I hope that Mr. Shinkai will remember me.
