Digital Manga Inc Launch Anime Cel Art Shop

Date: Friday November 25th 2011 [14:27] | Posted By: Joe

We've received some rather interesting news from Digital Manga Inc. They've just opened a new site Anime Cel Art, which like the name implies is dedicated to selling anime cel art. They've currently got Naruto, Bleach and One Piece cels for sale.

Collectors should note, that these are not production cels used to make the anime as production now is digital. These are officially licensed reproductions. They are hand painted, and made exactly the same as production cels, but these images have never been used to make anime. As a result you get more for your money. You get a high quality image along with a background for a reasonable price.

Press release as follows:

DMI Officially Launch the Anime Cel Art Store!!!

Dedicated Anime Cel Art Online Store Open For Business!

Gardena, CA (November 21, 2011) Digital Manga Inc., one of the manga industryís most unique and creative publishers, is proud to announce the official launch of their new online e-commerce store-the Anime Cel Art store! www.animecelart.com

Hand-drawn and painted art, the new storefront holds a wide selection of cels from scenes from your favorite anime such as Naruto, Bleach, and One Piece!!

A cel is a transparent sheet on which anime images are hand-drawn or painted. Cels have been an important innovation in traditional animation but have become rarer and more expensive by the year as the digital age has taken over- making these cels valuable collectorís items and decorative pieces of art for serious anime fans-many are priced over several hundred dollars!!

Anime Cel Art/Digital Manga, Inc. brings to all anime and manga fanís an opportunity-to own a piece of their favorite anime scene from some of the most popular anime in the world-by commissioning and producing limited quantities of these rare pieces of hand-crafted art. In cooperation with VIZ Media, LLC. and FUNimation Productions, Ltd., Anime Cel Art/DMI brings to fans exclusively hand-made cels. These hand-painted cels have been carefully crafted and produced by Art Anime Studio, and in conjunction with Studio Pierrot, Toei Animation, Shippuden and the original Japanese creators.

Anime Cel Art has licensed over 60 selected images and counting, from your favorite shows and characters. Many are available for purchase while others are available by popular demand. Selections available for purchase, are priced at an economical $60.00 each with free shipping FOR A LIMITED TIME. Numerous selected licensed cel images are available by popular demand, from taking a tally count from customerís wish list. Once a cel image accumulates a certain amount of popularity or request from the wish list, it goes into immediate production and will be available for purchase in a short time. Cel animators and production workers are standing by for your order of your favorite cel image.

Visit animecelart.com and the selection of available cels. None are mass-produced, all are officially stickered by the animation studio and licensor and are very limited in quantity...so hurry and reserve your favorite today!
