My steps to finish an order!

Do you know the basic way to finish an order???
Today, I will show you my way to finish an order step by step! 

1) I ask images from the clients. Sometimes they have clear one, sometimes not. is hard is they have none...

2) I make rough sketches based on their images, again, if they have any!
If it is not what they want, we will talk and talk, making variations.

3) After making a rough sketch with a solid image, make it clean for inking.

4) I inked on PC this time, so technically, didn't ink at all... (not always, though!)
I drew each character on each layer this time. When they don't seem to make no arrangement, I draw all the characters on the same layer.
Shading for each and make some adjustment, checking the balance.

4) Then I make some effects on the background and suggest where the title should take place.

5) They use the drawing in various ways...

The disaster on March 11th in Japan.

Dear all my friends and people who come to this blog,

On March11th, we got a disaster.

We had a tremendously big earthquake and several tsunamis on that day.
We still have aftershocks.

I was locked inside of my apartment and got a glass and plate broken.
But I was released and all the mess in the room was cleaned up.
To me, it is all about the actual damages.

However, t is very true that some areas of my country utterly destroyed.
Lots of people died in destroyed houses and by tsunami.
Although I and my family haven't gotten injured, my heart is so broken.

Again, my family, my friends, and I are all OK.
Please don't worry, my dear friends all over the world.
(There is no tsunamis in Tokyo.)

Please pray for those in the areas which directly got big tsunamis and bigger quakes.
Pray for them, who had hard time to get foods, water, electric supplies, warms...

We all thank you, sending us big, warm thoughts and hearts.
We all thank the countries, sending people and all those supplies.

Thank you very much.
