Stroll Through the Sky by Frotu Stroll Through the Sky by Frotu
Ooo yeah, Frotu is sooooo original. There isn't anything lazy about how she titles her pictures, nope.

So I watched "Howl's Moving Castle" with my cousin while I was away, and was again reminded of how much I enjoy that movie. And again reminded that I didn't really approve of Sophie's dress at the end, seeing as how it was practically the same thing she had been wearing the whole time. XD Yey for being critical!

Aaah... it's so nice to be able to color things again.

Ooh, such pretty colors...
And thank you so much for including Howl's necklace and earrings, I was so sad that he wasn't wearing them in that final scene. They're just...so him. :D

Thank you! Haha, of course I included the necklace and earrings... they are important parts of his ~image~. I agree that it's quite sad that they weren't there in the final scene *siiiigh*

And he's clearly worked so darn hard on his image, it's a crime to take away one of the key components. XD
The only problem with the earrings is that it's pretty much physically impossible to make earrings that sparkle and swing as awesomely as his do, so us non-animated people can't have them. :crying:

good that you redressed her! :nod: Although it would have been too much a change for the end of the movie. This picture seems to be some time after the ending, and so it's perfectly fitting. It looks like out of a sequel *_* That would be fun! I love the Moving Castle too!
I like how Sophie looks at him, her face. So strong and trustful, not the little mouse she had been. That makes me happy. Still your faces look all too alike.^^; but thats all.

Oh, I dunno... she had worn green and blue, so yellow really was a bit of a surprise. But I suppose it did fit, in a way... at least where the mood was concerned. :)

Well, teeeechnically there is a sequel. But that is with the books, and those are actually quite a bit different from the movie. So I don't know if that would even count, really.

Haha, well I'm sorry that the faces all look too alike. If there was a way to change that without changing my style, I would probably do it. But I do not think that one can happen without the other as well, so I doubt that it will change. >__>

Ah, I know that the story was taken from a novel. So there is a written sequel? I have always wanted to read the story, but... I forget how the author was called. xD A woman it was.
:giggle: Try out to make a different face. That would be interesting to see.

There is a sequel.... but it is a little strange. Not a traditional sequel -- the plot is about other characters, and Howl and Sophie just happen to play roles in it. I'm not sure about how much I liked it. :/

Hehe, and if I wasn't so lazy, perhaps I would. Unfortunately, it's seemed like I haven't had time to even try drawing lately, so when I do have time... I will try to make it as easy and straightforward for myself as possible. :D

ok, so you do pictures to relax, like me.^^ That's fine. Never mind, and try something different if you feel like it. :nod:

Haha yes.... there is enough stress in my life without me making art stressful, too. That is one reason I refuse to take an art class at school. Art takes me less time than writing, so it is good for instant stress relief. *nod*
