Layouts are a fascination to me. They're really roughs of a different sort, but they tend to have emotion, movement and edginess that finished sketches don't have. They give me the flavor that came through in the actual animation. Some day maybe I'll understand how that works! At any rate, this pan layout of Ichigo was an absolute must-have from the instant I saw it. It's just terrific.
