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

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

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.

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

MrJohnnyMartinez : Chrono Trigger

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.

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!

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!

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 ;)

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.

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!

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

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

bater dodokh : Wish Dave did the narration.

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!

Anti communist : What about an ace combat ukiyo e?

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

Windrunner Six : Come back to us, Dave! 3 months is too many months! I’m in need of another long rambling story of art and life and striving for excellence in everything!

TrustMeIDGAF : I'm here for the asmr session.

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

Laxus OfFairyTail : I was excited until Cameron’s narration

Aaron : Sound clitch at 8:20.

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

Mister Xon : 2 months?? Need a new video!

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 😊

Frans Salomonsson PAGY : Where are you David?

theden0minat0r : Great video work, Cameron!!

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!

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....

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 💯!

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.

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!

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

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

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

moli : Chrono Trigger!!!!! ❤️❤️❤️

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?

StardudeASMR : Good job Cameron!

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

Austin Lintelman : im so ashamed i forgot about your channel. I think youtube reccomended it to me and i maybe watched a few videos but now that i have done some printing myself this channel has a whole new meaning to me and i will return for sure. If i ever make it to Japan i would love to visit your shop. Thank you for the wonderful thoughtful videos.

Le Green Boat : Cameron is a lovely narrator and does a good job putting together the sequence of events in a really engaging way!!! I can't wait to see him develop his style more in whatever he does next!! <3

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!

Austin Lintelman : those pieces of metal are they used so you dont get ink in areas you dont want? and what kind of ink is this? its obiously very watery

Julznova : Fantastic video!

M A : How does one know how to align the paper perfectly to the woodblock?? If it's slightly offset isnt the entire thing ruined?

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.
