  1. Love this insight into how you work. I figure a number of artists do so as well, I’m not an artist so I don’t really know.

    I know a lot of anime use real world places for references. In K-On the school is modeled upon a real school including the stairs with brass animal statues on the rails. In the first season of Gunslinger Girl the artists went to Italy and traveled all over the place so they’d be able to depict real locations in the show which really is pretty awesome.

    1. That’s so cool! I love when artists use references to draw the locales they go to and incorporate those locales into their stories. I’m actually taking lots of photos of Wheeling, WV because it’s the location for The Case of the Wendigo.
