Update 06/12/2014: Here comes a better scan.

Howl's Moving Castle. My favourite Ghibli movie and one of my favourite books (favourite enough to do this). And one of my favourite scenes - out of the animation, obviously. And now excuse me, I'm off to watch it.

Tools: Graphite, watercolour and white gel pen on 30 x 40 cm watercolour paper.
Elsewhere: on tumblr, it's here, plus a WIP photo. Do not repost.
Soundtrack: Joe Hisaishi - Howl's Moving Castle Theme

Oh, this movie is so GREAT ! It is not my favorite from Ghibli (i'm definitely a big fan of Spirited Away), but Howl's moving castle is the second in the list ! I really like the way you drew Sophie. She looks like the real one, and on the other hand, she is totally in your style ! And congrats for the houses ! I wish i could draw pretty houses like this. i'm fond of little town view like this : )

Thank you so much, dear Eva :heart: Now that you mention it, in the book, the story starts in May. But in the movie it feels more like late Summer or early Autumn to me (:

The animation is very different from the book. It's based on it, but has a completely different plot (:

I do hear that Ghibli often changes things so much beyond their actual book counterpart ^^;
