Love spell- Howl and Sophie by Alimac Love spell- Howl and Sophie by Alimac
I called it love spell but I don't think Sophie really needed it hehe.

I had a lot of fun working in this, I completely LOVE the movie and think that they are an awesome pair, I think Miyazaki and studio chibli did a great job!

Mixed and match... kept him with his blond hair and his awesome patch jacket :)

Howl and Sophie don't belong to me, they belong to the writer Diana Wynne Jones and studio chibli, I am just having fun with romantic thoughs in my head!


The things you see in my drawings were painted by me, and my own brush/pattern creations, and photo used for reference for the mountains were taken from me.

I use this ref for their pose:

I loved Howl's first look out of all of the ones the movie gave him.

Whoa! Gorgeous colors and composition! I'm not usually a fan of the movie style, but... the way you did his coat and hair and FACe... that is just SO HOWL. My goodness gracious.

Thank you so much! I love the book as well and though about giving Sophie reddish blond hair but ended just giving her the silver hair at the end since I saw the movie before reading the book!

I am very glad you like it!

:D

Hmm... I like the pose, very dynamic and floaty. The background has so much detail, which is nice! I also really like the poppies in the foreground, I think it's a great splash of bright compared to the muted cool tones in the background.

I also think the green is an interesting color for a love spell, but you've really made it work, especially with the red flowers! It's definitely not a traditional "love spell" color, but that's actually something it really has going for it. I think I would find pink or red too cliche.

My one critique is that I don't think there could be a greater variety of texture on the actual figures.

Thank you for your comment, it is always so nice to see someone who takes their time to give a nice critique on your work :)

I agree with you, I wish I had put some more textures on both of them, at the end I was so ready to move on that I left it how it ended.

Probably will add some more in my next one which might be Mononoke or Ponyo, haven't decided yet!

Whoops, didn't edit: I meant I think DO think there could be a greater variety of texture.
