Marcio Takara

Marcio TakaraTakara begins his pages with 7\” x 5\” ink thumbnail sketches with which he shows his overall ideas to his editor. When he begins the actual pencils, he keeps them \”loose\”, because he will eventually ink over them himself, and does not require greater specificity. The penciling stage is the fastest stage for Takara, who does all of his pencil work with an HB 0.5 mechanical pencil, completing two or three penciled pages a day, sometimes even inking all three by the end of the day, which he does with Micron pens ranging in size from .005 to 1.0, Pentel brush pens and cheap brushes for filling in large black areas.
