Hello! This is one of my pieces for the Hayao Miyazaki tribute artbook that peacheriie and I have worked on!
Spirited Away was the very first Ghibli film I've ever watched, and I really loved how Miyazaki had used the entire movie as a metaphor. A lot of elements used in this film was representing something -- and yet it was still aesthetically pleasing.
For more information about the artbook and how you can get it, check out the thumbnail below, or this link! This book was sold at AFA Singapore 2013!
Made this fan art because one, this is my favorite movie EVA, and two, I haven't finished a digital painting since my Laputa piece last summer ( dannayy.deviantart.com/art/Cit… ) and I wanted to get back into digital-workflow-groove with something not stressful; during my first year of university I didn't have any time to digital paint really
Trying to refine my process more; I've never gone about digital painting consistently—usually I start with a terrible sketch ( i42.tinypic.com/ibjuia.jpg ) and start painting, but that takes forever, so I tried to do complete linework first for the majority of the piece with cel-ish shading. The background I painted though without linework, so that was more fun...
