I sketched a Howl by TixieLix I sketched a Howl by TixieLix
Sorry for the abundance of random scribblings lately... I have a lot on my mind and I need to get them out either on screen or paper. I think Howl was in my head coz I was looking at the Ghibli artbooks lately. Gotta love their stuff :heart: I tried real hard to NOT draw Link or Vega's face since my hand has developed muscle memory with theirs everytime I draw guys :P

Ballpoint pen in my notebook during lunch: 20 - 30mins. I only have an hour and I need to eat too! XD

HAHAHA XD
I think I'm going through an art obsession stage, also an elf one. I constantly think about art and that's all I seem to want to do, I also keep drawing elves..some with wings :P

Amazing drawing btw :0
That was a good movie :)

nothing wrong with an obsession if it helps you to create ;)

Same here. Bein' drawin' since i was two. But to do it with just pen would end me. But I guess its just goes for the type of style you have too.

Style is developed over time and the key with drawing in pen is to not be afraid - start your sketch set up lightly and then go over them with darker lines as you get the proportions right ;)

You did good!! He has his own face....which is kind of super-hard, because both Vega, Link, and Howl are designed with the "perfect proportion pointed chin" look ^^;

Oh man. I watched this for the first time about a year ago, and somewhere along the beginning of it she told me that Christian Bale was the voice of Howl. In that one scene where he's leaving the house all bird-esque, all I could hear in my head was Batman saying "I need to protect the city" X3

Thanks! I can still see a bit of Link and Vega in his though, which is what bothered me, but you are right in that Howl shares that ‘perfect’ face ratio. I tend to imagine that Vega’s face would be more built – as in having a stronger jaw line but more refined than the other bulky guys in SF, and Link would be more feminine, but just stopping short of looking like a girl… Howl was somewhere in between which made it hard :/

LOL speaking of Christian Bale Batman, my friend has ruined it for me forever – I was asking what does a bat sound like and he made Bale’s deep raspy Batman voice going “WHERE IS THE TRIGGER!!” ROFL I will never be able to watch DK without cracking up at those lines again :,D

OH MY GOODNESS. Have you ever seen this? [link]

It's pretty much just until 2:50, but the entire thing is gold. This has done the same thing to me. I can't watch any of the Dark Knight movies without thinking, "WHERIRRIT?!"
