Fan Art Friday – San from Ghibli’s Princess Mononoke (aka Mononoke Hime)
Movie: Studio Ghibli’s Princess Mononoke/ Mononoke-Hime
Hnnnggghhhh!!!! I love how this turned out, even if it is a study of one of the famous scenes in the movie. San’s personality always left a huge impact on me whenever I watched the film. It has so many great characters and themes!
Regarding this piece: I was able to learn a lot about lighting, composition and anatomy (I referred real photos of people to supplement the pose referencing) while doing this art study. I incorporated a lot of my own style into this piece as well. Also, I had a fun time painting in all those little Kodamas (forest spirits/dryads)!
This is only one of a multi-study Studio Ghibli series so I’m pretty happy to be able to learn a lot from just one initial study. Can’t wait to get started on the other studies as well!
Peace, amigos ^.^
