  1. Yeah, I believe that one sold for around 7K. The cel was close to identical. I bet it's the same buyer who bought it (maybe begrudgingly) since this one had the background. The bg really does complete it though.
  2. Woah you actually had the magazine! I have a feeling you could open up a dedicated macross museum all by yourself.
  3. Pronunciation double-take ! From wikipedia, the definitive source of truth.
  4. Based on the other image provided, it looks like it's "マイ アニメ" (My Anime) magazine - 05/May issue... assuming 1983. Illustrated by Hirano and his wife Kakinouchi. Both key animators to macross!
  5. That looks terrific. It makes all the difference. Oh, you may want to use a mylar bag to protect the cel from the background (if you haven't already)
  6. It's wedding season https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/k471789638
  7. Another free option is Gimp: https://www.gimp.org/. It's not the most intuitive app, but has most of the Photoshop features.
  8. That would be fun to watch... for a piece I wouldn't want I have a feeling a lot of fans are still sentimental for the hikaru+minmay connection. So I think you were right about the uniqueness of the wedding shot
  9. That's really cool to see that level of bidding activity. Still a lot of die-hards out there, which is awesome! Speaking of weddings and premium pricing... remember this? https://ekizo.mandarake.co.jp/auction/item/itemInfoEn.html?index=266361 Spectacular piece.
  10. If anyone is interested, here is a wide screen version. It surprised me when they integrated flashback at the end. That was a pleasant surprise.
  11. I'm a big mikimoto fan. I've met him a few times, and I don't think he'd mind a simple request, especially since it's a (sort of) commissioned sketch. I, personally, would not ask him to revert to a certain style since he's moved on, but IMO, a simple, "hey, I loved this drawing, could you draw something similar to this?" would be okay. BTW, the shared mumei/kabaneri sketch is fantastic. Would be ecstatic if he were to produce something like that. If anyone gets one, please share!
  12. Looks like he popped up in Raleigh a few years back. I prefer his DYRL/mid-80s art style. He once said his art has to evolve, good or bad.
  13. Sylvie's expression in the hanken is much different than the Mikimoto version. Maybe, for promotional materials, the marketing team preferred to depict Sylvie closer to her actual persona - a strong, resolute female officer. And maybe the illustrator was directed to Mikimoto's version as a point of reference? Theories!
