My weekend project: a stylized version of Haku (Kohaku) from Spirited Away, surrounded by paper birds.  There are also a few bonus spirits hiding out in the image.    I call it ‘Lost Spirit’.  Painted with watercolors, gouache and inks.  A step by step break down of this will be posted as an exclusive on Patreon. 

Prints are up on etsy and shirts are on TeePublic

Castle of Cagliostro Redraw !

Based on a screenshot from the second Lupin III movie, The Castle of Cagliostro directed by Hayao Miyazaki himself.

I wanted to combine a semi-realistic style with the pixelated look of a traditional animation film. The clouds were
the hardest parts. I had Fire Treasure playing in the back of my head the whole time I was making this piece. ^^

Looking back, Clarisse looks a bit like Bryce Dallas Howard.
