Necromancy Black : Is it just me or is the audio doubled up around 8:23?

Zachary Hughes : Cameron is really coming into his own as a narrator; you and he should both feel proud! What a wonderful print this is -- I can't help but be reminded of some of the shots in Yasujirō Ozu's later works from this angle and color play.

III1II1IIIiII : looks like the editor is gonna get the ole fashioned beatin from grandpa david

MrJohnnyMartinez : Chrono Trigger

Jorge Cardoso : Your videos are becoming more and more artistic David, congratulations! And really, really thank you for your content, your energy, and your perseverance. You have by far the most precious gem of a channel here on YouTube, and when I watch and rewatch your videos, I always feel blessed to have found it. A big hug from Brazil my friend, looking forward to visiting your shop

Ken Hallatt : A really wonderful video showing all of the work that goes into producing such a beautiful print. The resulting prints are just excellent work and Cameron did a very nice job shooting a very complicated process and bringing it all together into another great Mokuhankan video. Well done all!

Srirang Dhawale : Great job making the video Cameron! A few suggestions for your next project - - Try and think of framing the camera in better ways. The print is being presented in various angles (yes), but the orientation should be comfortable for the viewers during the processes. So, a point-of-view shot of the artist making the print would orient us better to the way she is looking at the paper! - David is a talented storyteller and he knows how to keep one’s attention very well. But when you are documenting a print with 28 processes, try adding movement to the camera. Maybe a cheap dolly on eBay? It’s worth the few bucks and adds huge value to the footage. (Look at the Youtuber ‘Clickspring’) - The audio had good quality, but there was an overlap with your narration and David’s voice at 8:25. You mention towards the end that you had to wrestle the editing software to make this video. I would highly recommend Adobe Premiere Pro CC, if you aren’t using it already. There are tons of video tutorials that will help you along your learning of the software as well. - While describing the Artist’s workspace, you said that “the pigments are to her left or right”. Please don’t worry about being correct. That will cloud your creative decisions. The viewers need simplified descriptions, and want to stay in the immersion you are creating. Next time just describe things relative to the artist. - Some soft music would have really kept the pace and helped the video along its duration. Thank you for the insightful video and I hope to see more of such content! Arigato!

cryohellinc : That's a very Large mana potion in front of David. P.S. Love the samurai frog. :D

theladylillibet : I enjoyed the different filming style, well done Cameron! Though I do miss Dave's voice over I think you did an excellent job.

Charlie Mcgloughlin : I now realize that people who are here for just the ASMR are disproportionately adverse to just a *tiny* bit of change. Too bad. This video is absolutely amazing, Cameron, dont focus on the negative comments -- from the way you are responding you seem to be taking it in stride, good for you.

5chr4pn3ll : Very interesting video that really gives you an appreciation of just how much work goes into a single print. Not even counting the carving of the individual blocks.

Andrew Jones : honestly your voice has quite the similar vibe to Daves when your speaking in Japanese. I would love it if narration was in Japanese with English subs. Now whether that is feasible due to time or ability is another matter up to you. Additionally, if you want to get some moving shots, I recommend buying a plane old kitchen timer for baking that rotates as it counts down. You can set a recording device on it via some mount and get some incredible moving timelapse. Great work!

hombretropical : As soon as David said "someone else made the video" I was like "BUT ASMR".. turns out this kid does just fine in that department ;)

Emophobe : Not to hate on the commentary but who else would enjoy a no commentary version? I just love that printmaking ASMR!

Fractal : Cameron did great, especially in keeping the mellow tone I've grown to love from this channel.

bater dodokh : Wish Dave did the narration.

Anti communist : What about an ace combat ukiyo e?

Bones : Fantastic video, in regards to the editing of the video, also fantastic. If I were to make any changes it would be the POV and the addition of adding more motion when making still scenes. Thanks again for another video!

Alessio Fangano : Good job Suga-san and Cameron-san! Very interesting video an gorgeous print in the end :D

TrustMeIDGAF : I'm here for the asmr session.

HBThingy : Thank you guys for putting up the process. Good job Cameron and Suga-san!

Laxus OfFairyTail : I was excited until Cameron’s narration

theden0minat0r : Great video work, Cameron!!

Luís Martini : David, I am Brazilian and want to begin in this art. Please, what tools do you use?

A Side of Miso : Dave! It was an absolute pleasure catching up with you last Sunday, had a really good laugh and the new desing of the shop looks fantastic! Till next time good sir but for now I'll be enjoying this latest upload! My word, 27 impressions! You guys continue to raise the bar and impress!

Chris Winning : David! I was on a flight on KLM airlines looking through things to watch on the plane and who should I see, David Bull. Such a delight seeing your work being shared around the world 😊

Sultan Mulberry : I really liked how you showed the layers of pigment step by step, Cameron. Thanks

Phil Bivins : really incredible...this video gives you a great idea as to how much goes into just the printing side of producing these beautiful prints....

Oalmax : I'm loving these handcrafting videoes. So much time and effort goes into making these. I hope the owners are appreaciate of the hard work!

ColdFrixion : David's narration, carving, and personality are the primary reasons I watch these videos. While I think Cameron is a nice guy, he's obviously not David. By comparison, I prefer David's narration by far, and unless he can find someone comparable to fill in, I'll pass.

Ysylla : This is the best game ever made and you have done it justice with this wood block print.

trahnettilhcs : Glad to see you made it through the weather, David. Thanks for the video

Alex Willis : What game is it based off of? Looks great as usual 💯!

CoffeeBean : So happy to see another long video pop up in my subscription feed!

moli : Chrono Trigger!!!!! ❤️❤️❤️

14blondayy : Good job Cameron!

elle : Love your work David, thank you so so much for the upload

Anonymоus : Woah, woah, woah, wait a moment. What is this nonsense? I subscribed to this channel almost exclusively to hear David talk about printmaking stuff. Both because he has an indepth and personal inside into the process as well as because he sounds like printmaking Bob Ross. Did I miss a day when we voted some nasally hipster to take over?

GreyWolfLeaderTW : I just realized after I recognized Cloud and Sepheroth, that the "Times Burned Bright" print is a recreation of a camp-out for the heroes of "Chrono Trigger".

Deadpan Man : Really enjoyed the insight into the work in this one. Thanks to everyone on the team!

don't care : where is David???

Background Character J : I'm glad David knows all of these kinda makes me wonder if bob were still around would he also be interested in making something similar

John Vermeer : David, I have watched most, if not all, your videos with great interest. I think you are a master. However I always felt that this old traditional art was wasted on “video games heroes”. I think this art deserve more daily scene from common people in this present time then some fictional violent heroes. I know you have done traditional scene before so I can only think that they don’t sell as much as this video game stuff and I am still puzzled about who buy this stuff and collects them. There must be some very important details I am missing about the interest these extraordinary prints depicting video games heroes have. Having written all that, I will still watch your videos with great interest in the art of making those prints

mangs856 : Well done, Cameron. I especially liked how you began your portion of the video and the casual conversation/interview with Suga-San at the end (not to mention the beautiful print itself). Very interesting the whole way through! Another job well done from the crew at Mokuhankan.

Joe R : That was a nice print. What print has had the most plates that you have had in a single print?

Travis Stine : David, thank you for producing these videos! I find your dedication to this craft very inspiring. I'm also starting to fall in love with woodblock prints. I would love to see a video where you talk about some of your contemporary artists/carvers. I understand from your videos that there is a secretive nature to the craft, but there has got to be some current woodblock prints out there that you admire!

Umekara : Thanks for the video, it was not one minute too long. The print turned out beautiful. David's vivid carving of different hair types of these heroes deserves a mention!

John Vermeer : I would like to add that this video is very well done. Excellent Cameron! David, this guy is a keeper for your videos.

Trever Bowen : Holy crap its chrono trigger!

R P : I’m gonna grab that print of Link fighting the guardian. We bought the great wave and put it in a gold frame with a gray matting. Looks fantastic.
