Whoa! When the scanned images were worked up into the final version, they were reduced 40%, as this sketch indicates, and given a soft focus against the abstract gray bubbles behind them.

So the fine-lined detail and the careful inclusion of Shinku’s tiny hand all went for nothing, for none of this could possibly be seen in the digitally manipulated footage. Yet it’s interesting that the image of Elder Jun and Shinku still had to be worked up in precise detail, an example of what I’ve called the “largesse” of Japanese animation. Even if these details would never been seen by audiences, they still “had to be there” in the dougas, making sure that what viewers saw was not just “good enough” but “dead on.”

The thumbs add a second sketch indicating how the gray bubbles spread from the top down and a rather stiff full-sized layout of the two figures, with the note flagging the issue that Shinku’s hand needs to be visible on top of Elder Jun’s.
