You skipped the good bit
I wanted to express my frustration regarding the video of the cover for issue 107, which was Han-Yuan Yu’s art for your manga special, back in April 2014.
The woman wears complex jewellery and a headdress. I learned that I could download the video and find out the steps the artist took to achieve those marvellously shiny and intricate items. However, when I downloaded nearly three hours of video that showed the artist creating the cover, I discovered he skipped over the parts I was interested in seeing. There were two occasions where he simply cut away, did the complex bits and then came back to the camera with the jewellery and headdress completed. I cry foul!
Please tell your artists that when they make a video that they should include every step so that I can learn from what they do. After watching the video I was in a bad mood for the whole day. It’s simply not fair. Ron Mendricks, US Claire replies Goodness, we don’t want to make anybody grumpy! Ron, I can’t remember why the video was cut in this way. It certainly wasn’t done on our part to annoy you. The videos are supplied by the artists and they’re free to edit them as they see fit. I take your points on board, though. I’m sorry to have annoyed you.
