April 2015

Art trade with nati. :heart: I recently watched The Tale of Princess Kaguya and it left a big impression... with all respect to all Hayao Miyazaki's movies, I have to admit that this Isao Takahata's one is now my top favourite from Ghibli in the visuals category. Well, I didn't really use any of those visuals here. But they are inspiring indeed.

Tools: 
Ink, watercolour, gold and white gel-pen on 30x42 cm watercolour paper.

Music: Rin' - 鏡月

This has to be one of my favorites in this whole gallery - There's something very whimsical and yet kinda ancient in the feel of this picture - The one doing an art trade with you is SO lucky! 

And I have to agree with you, 
princess Kaguya was simply <breathtaking. I've never had a movie whose animation techniques (That sequence where Kaguya runs away from her stately home and the images just breaks down into rough sketches!!!!) made me feel so emotionally invested in what's going on in the screen.

Thank you so much again! :heart: Well, I do love making art trades, to be honest I was a little surprised nati asked for one, I've been always looking up to her works, so it was... a good day. (:

Hmm, as for the animation, seriously, Takahata's Kaguya-hime is outstanding. I sat here for a moment and I was thinking where else in anime I've seen animation of this level, and I've just thought of Mob Psycho 100. It's a completely different story and atmosphere and the animation is different as well, but it's nothing short of breathtaking. They even have some scenes done with oil paint on glass animation. How cool is that? The entire ending credits animation in it is done in that technique as well. 

And how could I forget Mononoke. (Not Ghibli's Mononoke-hime). Animation-wise, it might be just my favourite animated anything ever. It's just beautiful. Plus, the traditional Japanese horror stories with their specific mood are a cherry on top with it. Really worth a watch if you haven't yet.

Ooh, maybe we could do an art trade some time? (:

Hi, Brandon! I've been doing, I guess not bad, most of the time, although I can't complain about having much free time, even after I retired from being a CV. I'll hopefully will be able to finally write to you after the new year, I'm honestly ashamed how long it's been...
