Type Moon Rough Sketch Fetches $4500


Few would deny an original work by Type Moon’s top illustrator 武内崇 / Takashi Takeuchi, of Fate/stay night and Tsukihime fame, to be one capable of commanding a high price, and worth it, but a recent auction in which a single page from a sketchbook, featuring but one rather rough pencil illustration, certainly turned heads when the auction concluded at an impressive ¥456,000.

The provenance of the sketch is not, by the way, in doubt. It was drawn at a doujin event, Sunshine Creation 10, for the current seller in 2001.


That’s all there is. See a cache of the auction here, and an introduction to the origiating thread here.

Money well spent? It may, of course, appreciate…
