I've been playing with Manga and Studio ghibli inspired designs all week. Here is my rough sketch for an idea that literally popped into my head as I was falling asleep one night! I think the idea of Gigi (cat in the tree) being freaked out was what started my mind off on it's ramblings as she is such a delicate creature!
I love working with chalks and pastels and this was a chance to see what I could do with a black background. I love how it's turned out and have been asked to make some Halloween cards for a couple of people. It's going to be very heavy on the ink, so I'll only make a couple and maybe one or two A4 or A5 size prints. Does that seem like a good idea? I'm not sure as this is just me playing :D
Would you believe there are characters from 6 different movies here??? Not all of them ghibli's (Skelly is from a Tim Burton movie and there is at least one Pokemon there and the two cats are mine :D ) As I said, it's just a bit of fun :D
