20:34:34 <bay|AX|Bushi> Since we have our illustrator guests
20:34:44 <bay|AX|Bushi> we're going to mainly talk about the game and card illustrations
20:34:57 <bay|AX|Bushi> ask the illustrators...
20:35:02 <bay|AX|Bushi> Why did you become an illustrator?
20:35:30 <bay|AX|Bushi> Midori: When I was a college student, I wanted to be a manga artist, but to earn money, I drew illustrations.
20:35:37 <bay|AX|Bushi> How did you find jobs for illustrations?
20:35:54 <bay|AX|Bushi> M: A publisher had seen my illustrations and gave me my first job
20:36:00 <bay|AX|Bushi> Did you present your work somewhere/
20:36:21 <bay|AX|Bushi> M: The publisher had seen the art on the website. I had an art gallery on my website.
20:36:53 <bay|AX|Bushi> A: I like to play RPGS like D&D, so I draw my characters and monsters, so I love drawing, therefore I become an Illustrator
20:37:10 <bay|AX|Bushi> How long have you been drawing Mr. Adachi?
20:37:18 <bay|AX|Bushi> As a job?
20:37:29 <bay|AX|Bushi> A: I started as an illustrator right after I graduated univ so it's been about 10 years
20:37:40 <bay|AX|Bushi> And Mr. Adachi also plays CFV himself right?
20:37:50 <bay|AX|Bushi> A: Yes, I love RPG and I also love card games?
20:37:59 <bay|AX|Bushi> -What is the best part about being an illustrator?
20:38:33 <bay|AX|Bushi> M: I enjoy the fact that I don't have to put in as much of my personal emotions... on a project that is given to me as a project, so I don't get too deeply emotional about it
20:38:54 <bay|AX|Bushi> A: In my case, as I said, i like to play card games and rpgs, so .... (missed... gets cards?) so it's a big merit for me
20:39:05 <bay|AX|Bushi> So for illustrators, we do give out card samples...
20:39:17 <bay|AX|Bushi> -What is the hard part about being an illustrator?
20:40:04 <bay|AX|Bushi> M: I guess the hardest part is each project has a different deadline and (such) and so my daily routine gets out of whack and my body starts breaking down and I get sick.
20:40:13 <bay|AX|Bushi> How many projects have you had at once?
20:40:16 <bay|AX|Bushi> M: 30
20:40:47 <bay|AX|Bushi> A; There are so many good illustrators threatening me, they might take my job, so many young illustrators are motivated and skillful and they give me a hard time
20:41:09 <bay|AX|Bushi> Q: What kind of illustrations do you like to draw?
20:41:16 <bay|AX|Bushi> M: I like high fantasy illustrations.
20:41:30 <bay|AX|Bushi> What type?
20:41:36 <bay|AX|Bushi> M: Human...
20:42:04 <bay|AX|Bushi> Like fanatasy type species like elves... like human types that don't exist in real life
20:42:31 <bay|AX|Bushi> A; I like to watch anime like... especially battle action and robots, so I like illustrations with gorgeous and power actions
20:42:35 <bay|AX|Bushi> and such illustrations
20:42:46 <bay|AX|Bushi> Both of our guests can draw monsters and male and female illustrations...
20:42:56 <bay|AX|Bushi> Do you prefer monsters or man Mr. Adachi
20:43:00 <bay|AX|Bushi> A: I like to draw dragons and robots
20:43:07 <bay|AX|Bushi> I'm not so good at humans
20:43:20 <bay|AX|Bushi> -Of the illustrations that you have drawn, which one is your favorite?
20:43:41 <bay|AX|Bushi> M: Scarlet Witch, CoCo
20:43:42 <bay|AX|Bushi> Why?
20:44:14 <bay|AX|Bushi> M: So before this illustration, I had thought the card game was for kids but once I was assigned to this, I thought that adults can enjoy this too, so it changed my view on how it can be designeed
20:44:28 <bay|AX|Bushi> Regarding this illustration, is there some part that you put your energy in to?
20:45:13 <bay|AX|Bushi> M: I incorporated like...traditional asian elements... and then wanted to have something that would appeal globally
20:45:30 <bay|AX|Bushi> A: Kungfu Kid, Bolta
20:45:43 <bay|AX|Bushi> I like this because I like to draw actions and robots, and this is robot action
20:45:53 <bay|AX|Bushi> (Same question as above)
20:46:06 <bay|AX|Bushi> The background, there are many grapplers beaten by this Bolta
20:46:25 <bay|AX|Bushi> -Have you ever played CF:V?
20:46:29 <bay|AX|Bushi> M: No....
20:47:05 <bay|AX|Bushi> No, I'm not very good with card games or puzzles or anything that requires mathematical thinking. I need Mr. Adachi to teach me how to play.
20:47:22 <bay|AX|Bushi> A; I love to play Vanguard, today there was a counceling event... I played two games and lost both of them
20:47:29 <bay|AX|Bushi> What part of the game do you think is most interesting?
20:48:02 <bay|AX|Bushi> A; I think Vanguard is simple compared to other card games, so it's easy to introduce to other players and other people...and easy to invite friends to play
20:48:14 <bay|AX|Bushi> So, Mr. Adachi will be available for counceling matches...
20:48:24 <bay|AX|Bushi> Please stop by at our booth, it's 1501
20:48:45 <bay|AX|Bushi> So from the next slide.. we will be making announcements
20:48:52 <bay|AX|Bushi> We haven't posted this on our website or anywhere else
20:48:55 <bay|AX|Bushi> the release date of the products
20:49:15 <bay|AX|Bushi> Extra Booster Cavalry of Black Steel(?) release next week
20:50:10 <bay|AX|Bushi> (Talking about two cards)
20:50:14 <bay|AX|Bushi> Cross Shot, Garp
20:50:42 <bay|AX|Bushi> M: So I kinda noticed a lot of women in japan who like this type of art, they kinda like them sorta thinner and slender, so i tried to make him look that way, but I'm not sure if it's popular or not at this point.
20:50:49 <bay|AX|Bushi> Scout of Darkness, Vortimer
20:51:11 <bay|AX|Bushi> A; This card is going to grow up to the (Specter Duke Dragon?)
20:51:40 <bay|AX|Bushi> The most important card in this set... (the dragon card)
20:51:32 <bay|AX|Bushi> (The dragon on the package)
20:51:54 <bay|AX|Bushi> And also, Mr. Adachi is also drawing the grade 0 unit for vortimer

20:53:33 <bay|AX|Bushi> Crimson Beast Tamer
20:53:23 <bay|AX|Bushi> M: So this card is ...it's a set where it's a pair of two sisters, and this is the younger sister of the two, and they are both circus performers, so i wanted to implement that part as well as the fighting aspect
20:53:38 <bay|AX|Bushi> Drangal
20:54:41 <bay|AX|Bushi> A: has a partner card (Knight Gallahad?), the partner card is drawn by the author of kamen rider spirits manga... so i tried to be worthy of Knight Gallahad

20:55:09 <bay|AX|Bushi> Sky Switch, Nana
20:56:33 <bay|AX|Bushi> M: So this character is ... an ally of Coco, and I didn't know at the time when I drew Coco that she would have an ally, so i wanted to add a japanese element to the design so i added a mizushuski(?) which is a ribbon
20:57:03 <bay|AX|Bushi> (He's explaining how CoCo and Nana are related, but I can't follow it...something about the oracle think tank?)
20:57:14 <bay|AX|Bushi> Cable Sheep
20:57:31 <bay|AX|Bushi> A: This is a not robot and not action he's not doing any action,
20:57:48 <bay|AX|Bushi> I tried to draw him looking very comfortable
20:58:08 <bay|AX|Bushi> Despite the look, it's a very strong guardian, the sheep prevents any attack
20:58:16 <bay|AX|Bushi> Next we have...

20:59:02 <bay|AX|Bushi> Pearl Sisters, Perle, Pearl Sisters, Perla
21:00:06 <bay|AX|Bushi> M: So this illustration is Pearl sisters and before this illustration... a lot of people thought my expeteise was mature sexy older woman, and this time it was an idol characer so i put what i liked so i put a lot of bright colors and i wanted it to appeal to as many people as possible
21:00:17 <bay|AX|Bushi> These are separate cards, but the original illustration is one full art
21:00:29 <bay|AX|Bushi> Eclipse of Illusionary Shadows Dec 15th
21:00:36 <bay|AX|Bushi> Silver Spear Demon, Gusion
21:01:30 <bay|AX|Bushi> M: So for Gusion, I'm not that good with monsters or mecha or that type of art, so I had to study up on a lot of other illustratiors and I have a lot to learn from mr adachi
21:01:38 <bay|AX|Bushi> Violent Vesper
21:02:25 <bay|AX|Bushi> A; My unit is grade 3 of Mega colony, it's a vesper hitman, so it has sunglasses.. and he has a hit like the italian mafia
