Favorite castle?

Oh good lord. Hard question. I love most of them.

Probably Carcassonne, for being a huge, fortified mediaeval castle-town. 

Also love Hohenzollen and Wartburg in Germany.

As English Castles go, I’m partial to Rochester castle for it’s simplicity, and Bodiam for it’s beautiful moat. Warwick is also an amazing castle.

For Polish and Hungarian history, Golubac is very pretty, especially with that white-stone against the cliffs, even though it is mostly a ruin now.

In the Holy Land, can’t go without mentioning Krak des Chevaliers, which was never, and to my knowledge, has never, been taken successfully by force. Being a concentric castle with multiple rising layers of walls, it was THE biggest threat to the Muslim forces during the Crusades, and even Baybars only took it through trickery and the Hospitallers surrendering. It’s also a beautiful landmark.

Victor Nikiforov as Howl~

I was watching Howl’s moving castle for the hundredth time again this weekend and I couldn’t stop thinking about Victor when I saw Howl >w< so this happened when I realized how much I wanted to draw Vitya with long hair as well ♥ ゜・。。・

“I think we ought to live happily ever after,“ and she thought he meant it. Sophie knew that living happily ever after with Howl would be a good deal more hair-raising than any storybook made it sound, though she was determined to try.

"It should be hair-raising,” added Howl.


“And you’ll exploit me,” Sophie said.

“And then you’ll cut up all my suits to teach me.”

Painted on borrowed time so lots of messy details sorry argh >_<;;

One of my favourite Ghibli movies , and the book made me love it even more! <3 I was always afraid to draw fanart for it, because I kept feeling like I would mess up (and I did lol); well in the end I listened to some advice and just went for it aha.

I actually have the footage of the drawing process but still thinking about making the speedpaint because there’s a lot of rushed work and messy details that’s kind of embarrassing ;; we’ll see.

small flame.

In retrospect Ford should have probably guessed that whatever Rick Sanchez had planned as a birthday adventure for Stanley and him would result in some sort of bizarre phenomenon that would inevitably result in trouble. Yet somehow, here he was, plummeting through the atmosphere of an alien planet, watching in pure scientific fascination while his entire body rapidly shrunk as he regressed in age.

“Yeeehhaaaaaa! I haven’t felt this spry in decades!” Fiddleford exclaimed as his beard vanished into the youthful face of a child.

“Pretty sweet, huh?” Rick called up from where he casually lay back free falling like he had no care in the world. He looked smugly like it was perfectly normal that he’d be a near seventy year old man in the body of a pale blue haired child skydiving towards an unknown alien landscape. “The atmosphere on this planet does some w-wild shit to mammalian genetics! Rrr-urp-re-reacts like a fountain of youth so to sp-speak. It’ll wear off when we leave but for the day, say ff-fuck you to ar-arthritis and enjoy being ten again boys!”

“Woah-oh cool!” Stanley yelled with the enthusiastic high pitch his voice hadn’t had since puberty. He flapped around laughing in his now vastly oversized suit for a moment, but Ford could have counted down on six fingers how long it took for the amusement to wear off and Stan to notice they were still falling rather fast towards the ground. “Uh hey, Rick? You got a plan for landing, right?”

“Huh? N-No shit, I just had us all drop outta the sky so we could rapidly de-age in a dramatic way only to die moment’s later when w-we hit the ground like pancakes.” Rick scoffed as his small arm fished in his oversized labcoat for something. “Wh-what kind'f-of mad genius do you take me for, Lee?”

With a flourish of his hand Rick produced a small capsule that he casually tossed beneath them. It quickly inflated mid air into a bouncy castle spire that caught their fall and delivered them safely to the planet’s ground through a large inflatable slide. Ford was not certain what calculations had gone into the elaborately childish safety device but there was definitely some sort of false gravity adjustment inside the oversized balloon castle that resulted in the desired safe landing instead of being flung back into the stratosphere upon impact. In short, Rick was clearly showing off.
