Arrietty - Ghibli Series VII by Loonaki
Arrietty - Ghibli Series VII
Part 7 of my January Fanart project Ghibli series. 
______________________

To me, this is the prettiest Ghibli film. I mean, they’re all absolutely beautiful and every background is a work of art, but the backgrounds in Arrietty are so stunning. So much detail, so many clever ideas for the interior of the tiny house that’s all borrowed stuff. Especially Arrietty’s room.
The Cecile Corbel soundtrack is also one of my favorite soundtracks ever, and not just from Ghibli films, but in general. The songs are all so sweet and I adore the lyrics.

Porco Rosso - Ghibli Series VI by Loonaki
Porco Rosso - Ghibli Series VI
Part 6 of my January Fanart project Ghibli series. 
______________________

Porco Rosso is my absolute feel good movie, it cheers me up every time I watch it. It has such a nice humor to it, the typically too soft hearted pirates Miyazaki likes to use and the American who wants to first become a famous actor and then the president… It’s just really funny. I also like the movie, because it’s so feminist. Like the scene in which Fio asks Porco if he doesn’t trust her to repair his airplane because she’s young, or because she’s a girl. And even though Porco is reluctant at first, he recognizes her talent and capability in the end. That really hit home for me, especially now that I entered the working world and have struggled many times with prejudices against women in certain jobs. And the scene in which only women built the whole airplane working on engines and big machines… I just love it.

Nausicaa Of The Valley Of The Wind-Ghibli Series V by Loonaki
Nausicaa Of The Valley Of The Wind-Ghibli Series V
Part 5 of my January Fanart project Ghibli series. 
______________________

This can't be said enough (oh and it has been said a number of times by a number of people), but Nausicaä is the ultimate heroine to me. She is brave and selfless, capable and kind and stands for peace. I also love the idea of the forest cleansing the earth of all the pollution, for it finally offers a post apocalyptic scenario that doesn't focus on the damaged and lost, but on the actual effective rebuilding of a healthy system.

Kiki's Delivery Service - Ghibli Series IV by Loonaki
Kiki's Delivery Service - Ghibli Series IV
Part 4 of my January Fanart project Ghibli series. 
______________________

Such a charming movie! I always loved the setting of the city by the sea. What I especially like about Kiki's Delivery Service, though, is the conversation she has with the artist in the cabin in the woods. That idea that you have to work hard for your passions and your talents and for finding your own place in the world with them. I remember being Kiki's age very well. How full of creativity and enthusiasm those young people are, and how difficult growing up and finding that place can be.

Howl's Moving Castle - Ghibli Series III by Loonaki
Howl's Moving Castle - Ghibli Series III
Part 3 of my January Fanart project Ghibli series. 
______________________

Howl's Moving Castle is another one of my absolute favorite Ghibli movies! Mainly because to this day Sophie is one of the most relatable characters for me. Her struggles with herself and with what she wants to do with her life are so familiar to me. I was also very impressed by the design and animation of the castle back in '05. It's a work of art all by itself.
And Howls drama queen moments are really funny to watch. I generally like the humor in this film.

Could you post a tutorial on how you take your hand drawn art and then digitalize it please. I just started college at this art school in Tennessee and i am not understanding some of their digital art classes.

All I do is scan my paintings, or photograph them (natural light is best!) and then digitally adjust lighting and contrast (you can use simple free software like GIMP for that). That's it, really. :] I hope that helps a little.
