Ponyo by ~Tamasaburo89 The suggester said "The artist really captured the free-spirited fun of Ponyo in this piece. The line art is amazingly clean and the hues blend perfectly. This is an excellent use of watercolor, given the theme."

Hey there!

As you can see I made my first Ponyo Fanart.

Good god, I love that movie! I was adicted to it after the first 30 seconds!

And I know that the image format is pretty unlogical.
Like why are Ponyos sister swimming around her and Sosuke while they are appearently running atop a wave.
And why doesn't Fujimoto got a breathing bubble around his head, cause it seems that he is supposed to be underwater.

So, you can see this pic as a collage.
A rather illogical collage.

But hey! I had fun making this piece.
Though I really fucked up Gran Manmare!
I think she is the most beautiful woman Hayao Miyazaki ever put on film and I just wasn't able to catch her beauty with my weak abilities.

And special thanks to :icondecybel: for helping me with the image :)

Movie: Ponyo by Studio Ghibli

This is so beautiful!
I love the placement you used, and I don't think it looks unlogical. If you're looking at it as a scene then it might be, but as a collage or poster like this it looks perfectly fine. 
You did a great job with the characters, and I think Gran Manmare turned out really well, too. She looks like she'd be a hard character to portray.
My favorite thing from this piece is probably the colors. They're so beautiful and blend well. I really like how you did the blue throughout the picture.
It's a nice touch but not overpowering, as blue easily can be.
You did a fantastic job on this!  :D
