drawn in graphite
roughed out digitally before completion
>_> HI DA. It's been a while. A few months maybe. HOW ARE THINGS?
I've been making art but have been too busy to post anything. At this point there's such a build up of unposted stuff I don't know how it will ever all be posted without flooding inboxes and people unwatching this account in terror.
Thanks for being so supportive of the rough drawing of this image! I was really uncertain of completing it because I just felt like EVERYONE EVER fanarts Miyazaki / Totoro, why should I also, but I guess there can never be enough. o__o;;;;
So uhm yus this picture ... I really love Secret of Kells. And Totoro. <3 I can't remember what I was SUPPOSED to be drawing, but I was watching both of those movies while working on that other thing and it prompted me to doodle Totoro giving Pangur a berry to make ink out of. After that doodle I dropped the thing I was supposed to be working on and painted this instead because multitasking doesn't really happen for me. IT'S ALL OR NOTHING.
I might eventually do more paintings of Studio Ghibli things, there have been enough requests and offerings of commissions. ><
literally my two most favorite movies of all time together!!!
ANYWAY, this is absolutely beautiful! Man, your watercolour work is just mindblowing - I am LOVING the art nouveau-esque spirals and details throughout this. Just so stylish! <3
And the colours are amazing. I love how you colour shadows so that they have depth and are most certainly shadows, but are not dark and overbearing.
Ahhhh... such a sweet painting!
TAKE MY MONEY! ahaha. I'm serious. take my money I will one day annoy you again about commissions, but I feel bad bothering you while you're already so overworked. I don't want to add extra stress in your busy busy schedule though. But if you do get less busy or have time for another on the list, please do let me know :3
