The thing that fascinates me most is just how tightly she holds her tools. I have a habitual death grip that people constantly try to "correct" - I'm a bit tired of being told I'm holding things wrong and how I have to do it this way or that way! You can accomplish good things even with a death grip, according to these videos, so a little part of me is kinda happy.
However, I hadn't thought of putting a plaster over ye olde drawing finger lump of doom. I wonder if that helps stop it hurting? Maybe I'll try.

March 23rd, 2010 #29There's just less of that than usual. She's obviously had tons of practice and knows exactly what she wants when she starts to draw.
I've retouched INU YASHA for eight years straight for a German publisher (deleted the Japanese soundwords and drew what I assumed was beneath the signs, so that somebody else could put German soundwords onto the page without worries).
Because of that I've seen certain patterns emerge: storytellingwise - every 15 pages an action scene, every 4 books more talking to move the plot and artwise - you often times see the same postures and heads over and over. With the exception of action scenes, there was seldom new ground broken.
Dunno if this directly translates to her work, but I thought I'd chime in. It might explain some of what what we see in the video. It's still an impressive accomplishment and doesn't take away anything.

Random question but just what is the pen that is being used? I have crow quills that use those nibs but that pen is much wider, and since she doesn't seem to be dipping it into a reservoir, I assume it is holding ink.

So far the guess is it's a G-nib (don't know if they sell those outside of Japan/Japanese outlets?)
