This is a long, long overdue commission of Sen and the Dragon from Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli's "Spirited Away." Great film, one of my favorites. This was a pleasure to work on. Blue pencil and copic markers on 14 x 17 in 300 series Bristol.
Mom asked for a piece from me she could hang in her classroom. She's a special education teacher in my hometown of Lake Oswego, OR. I came up with this and decided to use watercolors to paint it. It's sort of my "ode to knowlege and learning." I hope she likes it, took a solid few days to finish, as I'm still not entirely comfortable with the media. Liking watercolors more and more however.
