Message from Kiyotaka Oshiyama

The advice I offer will vary depending on the theme of your work. I try to approach each piece as neutrally as possible, but since I have preferences of my own, my advice should be considered as subjective. Please take my advice as just one of many possibilities and enjoy! Otherwise you may lose the fun of drawing.

I will not tell you what the theme of your drawings should be. It is for you to choose your theme and decide what you want to transmit and express before you start drawing. That way, you will know when you fall short of your ideals and you will be able to learn more.

Although animation editing is usually done in the context of a series of images (like flip book images), I will be editing your pieces as keyframes.
