This movie definitely deserves this tribute. :love: Favorite movie ever.

You really captured the sisters' childish glee very well, and the little Totoro look fluffy and adorable. Most of all though, I like the shading on Totoro's claws: it's a tiny detail, but it gives him more substance.

Good work! :)

I love the Totoro characters, but the movie is not one of my favorites. Your Totoro are great though. Have you seen Ponyo yet? I haven't made my way to the theatres yet, but I plan to. I've heard it's pretty good. :)
