“木 (Ki)” becomes vertically long in ki-hen, such as “村, 榑, 樹,” etc. The width of “木 (Ki)” is tuned to a fine degree to match the element that comes on the right side. On the other hand, there are kanji characters “宋, 栄, 榮,” etc., that require height adjustment. When matching the covering element, such as in “棊,” both width and height are adjusted. Furthermore, a small “木 (Ki)” is required for kanji characters like “保, 新, 欝,” etc.
When “木 (Ki)” collides with the element to be joined together, a part of the stroke may be cut to avoid congestion. As described, various shapes for “木 (Ki)” are required in creating kanji. Correspondence only by simple deformation may lead to distortion in structure, unmatched thickness, or unnatural angle tips. It does not quite go well. The outline is carefully adjusted by working to match each character.
