Arrietty the Borrower

風 髪に感じて 空を眺めたい
あなたに花 届けたい
ほら蝶々が舞ってる 私を待っている

Inspired by the Japanese and German lyrics of Arrietty's Song. I fell in love with the movie and the soundtrack, so it was a good chance to draw another Ghibli fanart ^^

It's the first and maybe the only fanart that I've drawn on A3. And probably the most difficult background that I've drawn so far. xD

Media: ink, watercolours, acrylic colours
Size: A3

This is so sweet. Not gonna lie, I miss your fluffy storybook-style here. It's so much more than manga art, yet right at the core no matter what. I like how the paint is both light and texturised, and that little trick concerning the perspective is lovely. :heart:

Awww thank you so much! :heart: Your sweet words really mean a lot to me!
At the moment I'm still recovering from certain events in the past which, let's say, made me want to take a break from everything ... I'm working on some things in the background now, but I'm not sure when (or if) I'll upload something on dA again ... There are some things that are disturbing me about dA or internet communities in general ^^; But I keep on going!!

Yeah, I know what you mean. :( I've had my own experiences, but never made them public for a number of reasons. I think it's good to make these experiences early though, and learn from them.

Btw, I've been sketching a few characters lately, just haven't come around to sending anything to you yet. ^^;

It's ok, take your time! ^^
Actually I've been quite busy with a lot of stuff lately (including work and trying to get my last grades until the end of this month ... which seems impossible ~_~), so it's really ok xD But I'm looking forward to seeing your characters! ^o^

ich werd warten bis sie ´s mal im Fernsehen zeigen, weil die DVDs sind immer so sauteuer >.<

So teuer sind Ghibli-DVDs gar nicht o.O Die normale Version von Arrietty soll nur 13,99€ kosten laut Amazon.
Ich werd mir vielleicht für 4€ mehr die Special-Version kaufen oder wünschen xD
R-Tea's avatar
gut zu wissen, falls ich dann mal im Laden über eine stolpere, werd ichs ja sehen
