Sketchtavern's Draw-a-day challenge Day 28 Entry.

Now this film, I can't think of the words to describe it.
Simply yet another fantastic Ghibli film with it's brilliant execution of animation. Why I decided to depict this scene, I'm not sure myself as there were (as usual) too many great scenes to choose from.

Ghibli's 2004 feature "Howl's Moving Castle"

Available as a 1200X900 wallpaper (Just click Download)


-tools-
4h.HBpencil/A5PrinterPaper > Photoshop7/OpticalMouse



Time it took (loose estimation):
Drawing - 30 - 35 minutes
Colouring - 3 - 3 1/2 hours

Maybe you chose this scene because it shows Sophie being honest about how she feels?

I didn't really like the movie, i am not a fan of anime. But I hear the book is fantastic. I might give it a read.
And even though the movie was ehh, this is still very good :)

Best. Movie. EVAR! (As far as cartoons go anyways. Lord of the rings is pretty damn epic...)

But yes, Howl's moving castle is by far one of my favorite movies ever, and this picture captures the mood at the end of the movie perfectly. Very well done :clap:

Wow! I never would have thought to draw this scene but it came out well. I like how you do these in your own style instead of directly copying the films' model sheet looks.(Not a criticism of the original works, it's just nice to see variety!)

With the exception of Ponyo by the Sea I have all the Ghibli films and even some of his pre film stuff and I have to say this is my favorite film. It always gives me this great feeling when I watch it and now I've got my daughter (she's 3) watching it and loving it as much as I do. This is awesome Chamba!! :love: Keep it up!
