And entry #2: [link]
Soo, yeah, I caved and decided to enter ^_^;;; I don't usually do contests, but, I love ponyo so much and got an idea, so I went with it. I also thought it was about time to see something drawn instead of just compiled together.
I tried to learn something from the artist for the movie, as I went to see his exhibit in Kobe and looked at all his AMAZING artwork for th Ghibli movies. He mostly uses watercolor, but in Ponyo he uses a mix of water color and colored pencil. I tried to emulate paint when I did this, but it's hard to emulate colored pencil with digital media (any suggestions, I'd love to hear them! ^_^ ) He also is a big fan of yellow-green in this movie, so I stuck with that too, on the trees. And the bright yellow-green is good for an advertisement b/c it draws the eye to it! So, it all worked out ^_^
I went for some fun coloring, kept my hand loose, and just ran with it. Personally, I really like the sky, then the trees. First good trees I've done ^_^ I tried to work in the things I'm not very good at drawing, in order to challenge myself (water, trees, sky, clouds) b/c I'll never get better at them if I don't draw them! I do love the water and the little ponyos in the water ^_^
And now the art class person in me is channeled, oh dear. I painted her in the water, her home, looking up at the land and the car, showing her longing to be human and with her boooooy, which is pretty much the whole point of the movie ^_^
Please, any comments or critiques, would be much appreciated! I for sure want to do my best! Hope the writing is readable!
Please, Enjoy! Opinions welcome! ^_____^
