Takamura Store in association with the Japanese studio Yapiko Animation is offering a drawing restoration service. When you are collecting anime cels, the drawings coming with have oftenly tears and damages on it.
We guaranty a restoration of high quality thanks to the animators of the studio Yapiko Animation.
Please have a look at the 3 following examples:
-1st example: Cat’s Eye
Before restoration: The sketch has some small tears; the thumb on the left is missing. The sketch has also been slightly painted on.
After restoration: All the lines have been corrected including those of the shadow in green and the frame in red.
Thanks to the picture of the anime cel provided by the customer, the thumb has been drawn again.
-2nd example: Treasure Island
Before restoration: This oversized sketch is a douga drawn by Akio Sugino used to make a harmony cel.
After restoration: All the tears have been restored including the missing ear of the small tiger.
-3rd example: Nadia the secret of the blue water
Before restoration: This sketch has a part of the left eye missing and also the mouth has not been drawn. The reason is that it was on another sketch not included.
The customer wanted the sketch restored with the mouth also added. As the customer didn’t have the anime cel, we had to look for the sequence in the dvd in order to find our template.
Here is the screenshot :
After restoration :
The eye is almost identical to the screenshot and the mouth has been added.
