HMC- novel doodles by frizz-bee HMC- novel doodles by frizz-bee
Sooo... my friend lent me Diana Wynne Jones' Howl's Moving Castle (or Le Château de Hurle I should say, since it was the french translated version) and I had an absolute BLAST reading it!

I absolutely adore your doodles! They're amazing! I'm going to be honest, HMC was the first book in a very long time to make me never want to put down. It's almost sad, because I nearly forgot that feeling. I'm so happy I saw that book in the library.

I love the art work! I've been looking for this image for forever! :D I once saw someone on YouTube have this image as a backdrop thing for their fan reading (and it was a really good fan reading) of howl's moving castle. I think their YouTube name had something to do with bacon. Idk. :( hey if anyone knows what I'm talking about, go ahead and chime in. Anyway, LOVE THE ARTWORK AND STYLE ITS ABSOLUTLY BEAUTIFUL!!!!!! :D

This is exactly how I pictured him in the book! I love that you have him playing rugby to :) that was such a perfect and hilarious part of the book, I have no idea why people don't talk about it more. It's a gem of a book, but it's so hard to find fan art for the novel and not just the movie. I absolutely love when fan art has little things in it, that are only from the book (like his rugby uniform <3) Thanks for the great work :)

You have no idea how happy I am to see fanart of the book versions. I like the film in its own way, too, but man. This is... pretty much exactly how I picture him when I'm reading the book. Good show!

I love these! Looks just like the Howl in the books – the expressions seem to reflect his personality really well. And I love you for drawing book fanart... It's so hard to find! I hope you draw more of it some day.

I really like this version of Howl, his look and his attitude. It makes me want to read the book. And i also like the colors and parchment effect of the paper. Well done :)

I just finished reading the book version today (I had seen the movie and was so shocked when I heard there was a book!) and was so upset that he was so grumpy in the book! Lol. I like the plot for the movie a little bit more than the book, but now having read the book, so many little things bother me in the movie version. Like at the end, Turnip head (he has a name, but i prefer this :P) turned back into the prince, and was like, "For some reason, I got a spell put on me!" It completely ignored a huge part of the book!! *Frustration* lol :P

ça doit faire 2-3 ans que jl'ai lu... pourquoi "Hurle"...? XDD franchement c'est pas terrible comme nom, ils auraient pu garder Howl ou prendre Hauru comme dans le film xDD

tu me donnes envie de relire ce beau ptit roman et des faire des croquis aussi :heart: les crises de nerf de Sophie me manquent xDDD
ya un passage qui me faisait bien rire a chaque fois que jlisais ce livre, c'est quand elle s'énerve au point de changer l'eau de ses fleurs en produit toxique XDD et aussi les soeurs de Sophie... j'avoues que des fois je m'y perdais... "arf qui est qui...?!"

mais ce que jpréfère par dessus tout par rapport au film, c'est que Sophie garde sa couleur de cheveux d'origine lorsqu'elle redevient jeune :heart: j'adore les roux(sse)........ oui je sais elle est pas rousse elle est blond cuivré xDD elle l'a assez crié à Hurle ! (...) oulaaa j'ai fait un jeu de mot sans le vouloir XDD comment j'ai fait ?!

Uwaaaah!! *makes manga-like sqeals of aghast appreciation* I have been on a serious HMC kick, and am writing the fanfictions, and everything... your art style is so well-suited to HMC, and these doodles are beautiful. So full of character! I like your darker version of Howl--usuall he is a little sillier in my mind, but that's why we love him, because he toes the line between 'theatrical goof' and 'bad boy' so well! I especially like him in the rugby outfit, it's such a scene from his past. <3 <3 ooh, favorited!

Oh my goodness... I'm just now reading it, and this is pretty damn close to how I imagined him. I must say, I rather fancy him in his rugby uniform. :D

LOVE your depictions, I do hope you draw more of him and the characters :)
