Hey y’all. With the year of the Dragon upon us, it’s time to continue the Anime Cel Art tutorial series! If you missed any of the previous posts, check them out!!

Brief Intro / Series Launch / Tools 1 / Tools 2

Materials to prepare:

Drawing paper

※ Graphite pencil (ranges from the hardest 9H to the softest 9B, so use the one that suits you best)

Steps:

※ To be quite frank, there’s not much to it. Just draw whatever it is that strikes your fancy and be creative! The canvas is only limited by your imagination!

The next tutorial will focus on the “Clean Copy” production phase and this is where the tracing paper comes in handy. Why? Well, find out on the next post.

※ Apron: protect your pimp gear. Stains from cel paint linger forever!
※ Latex Gloves: prevents naturally occurring oils and fingerprints from ruining cels.
※ Dropper: cel paint tends to lose its moisture rather quickly through evaporation so a dropper is essential for reintroducing water into the mixture in small doses.
※ Tracing Paper: used when creating a clean copy from the original rough draft.
※ Other Equipment: 2 pens with varying colors, rag, tissue, & water container
This concludes the section focusing on the materials used when creating anime cels. Starting from the next tutorial, we will begin our quest of conquering the elaborate production phase!

Acetate Sheet: cels were originally made out of celluloid, hence the name, but later replaced by the more durable acetate film. They’re offered in a multitude of sizes.

Special Cel Paint: 2 types exist in Japan, which are the Toei Animation ver. & the Animex ver.

Special dip or tracing pen: a.k.a the G-pen (I’m serious, that’s what it’s called!) in Japan, they are perfect for tracing since they don’t scratch up the acetate surface.

Watercolor Paint Brush: a brush with a firmer tip is favorable (That’s what she said… LOL!).

Glass Muddler: preferably a sleeker model (almost like a drink stirrer) since it’ll be used to mix the cel paint.

“Hooray!! \(^o ^)/” to the kick-off of the new anime cel art miniseries. The next tutorial will continue to introduce you more tools of the trade.

animecelartA brief explanation of what a cel is and how it’s produced can be found at AnimeCelArt.com but we’d like to introduce a more detailed breakdown of the creation process. That being said, we plan on posting up short tutorials on all things relating to the fabrication of anime cels.

We’ll begin with introducing you the essential tools/devices used by the artist and then move on to the actual production phase. The 1st edition will be available soon and we hope that you’ll enjoy the upcoming miniseries. Cheers!
