I hope it will translated and published in US and Europe.

Oh, it's too late for saying this but I'm gonna say it anyway
guys happy new year~!!
hi gontaro i'm a huge fan of your work whenver it pops up.
Will your book be shipping outside of Japan? I live in the Philippines and will get your book on first printing, regardless of what language it comes in.
and yes, these are gorgeous designs.
love your work. i'v seen a couple of these at sijun before, too awesome. i hope to see your book soon too.
Excellent work. The figures are all marvelous, but I especially love the two environments.
Just as a quick question; what Japanese artists do you especially admire, or have learned from?
~Livin' large at Watts Atelier.
Very cool. Whats the book called? Is it out yet?
Wow, very nice concepts. I especially love your costume ideas. Post more, if you have them!
There is nothing wrong with using a photo to help you see things.
No one complains about life drawing,
so take a photo.
its easy, and will improve your piece greatly."
Breathtaking stuff Gontaro
It always a joy to see your work. Like always your environments and characters all seem so full of life.
Is this watercolor? I especially like the female character that you posted first, along with your steam mech contraption..
Your work is stunning, I have seen it before, but it's really cool to see your sketches. Please tell me when the book ships, I would love to have a copy! Best - mh
Wow, the chance to have a book full of concepts similar in style to those in this post is very good indeed.
Your work inspires me with further ideas.
Fantastic man! the steam powered robot is really cool looking.
i was just wondering, how come Gontaro don't post here at CA. I saw your work at other forums. And here you go.
Your work is excellent as always. I wish I had such confident and good line as you do. Please post more often.
