I’m not getting tired of seeing him work magic with his fingers on the iPad anytime soon. And with three more videos up, this feeling is not going to go away anytime soon. :3
Seeing his work on the eyes, with the detail required to get that effect in this scribble was great:
My first whoa moment with this scribble was the shadow effect on Ryushika (of her namesake manga Ryushika-Ryushika)’s hair:
And a side profile here:
What I enjoy best are the responses in English that he has to people commenting on his works, as he tries his best to explain how he does the drawings (Livesketch HD app) and how he tapes the video (draws with right, tapes with left). And I like that he talks to the doubters as well. In one example for one commenter who said that his first video was a fake, ABe replies:
Please watch my other movies. I took a movie when I start livesketch app, and zoom to my finger I am drawing. This drawing is very easy for me, because I have drawn manga for 20 years. But it is difficult to trick someone. I have no experience to trick.
I’m not necessarily sure how effective that will be to that specific commenter (and there always seems to be that type of people who wants to prove everyone else wrong or decrease the hype by “exposing things for what they are”), but it shows a little dedication that I don’t see a lot of people trying to do. It also shows a level of direct creator/consumer communication that I think would be fun to see even more of, like many examples present on Twitter. And it shows that haters gonna hate regardless, so let them hate while you continue to do your best at whatever you do. Keep on rocking, ABe. :)
