Love to doodle, paint, craft or just you know – CREATE?
Fan Art Up! is a weekly meme hosted by Tabitha @ Not Yet Read. It is dedicated to showcasing our Fan Art and doodles inspired by entertainment media, whether it’s Books, Movies, Anime, Comics, etc. Break out those dusty art supplies!
Rules for participating can be found on the Fan Art Up! main page
This week’s art was inspired by Studio Ghibli
Specifically anime films like SPIRITED AWAY and MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO
You know I love anime and pretty much every Miyazaki film out there. But one of the things I love best are the little dust sprites. That’s right these little guys.
They are known as “Susuwatari” or dust sprites, soot sprites, dust bunnies – you get the picture.
So I find that they often show up in my random doodles. Not that the rest of the doodle is inspired by the Ghibli films but these little guys most certainly are!
Great news! I know some of you keep pestering me to add some color to my sketches. I swear to you that I am TERRIBLE at coloring. But but but – I’m going to start trying. I’ve ordered some COPIC markers and some special paper and hopefully in the upcoming weeks we might see some color on my doodles. Now if they turn out terrible you have no one but yourself to blame because I did warn you – I’m terrible at coloring…like imagine a 2 year old letting loose in a coloring book – It’s going to look something like that. And my adorable little black and white sketches WILL LOOK LIKE THEY ARE BLEEDING RAINBOWS OF DEATH!!
Alright folks link up and lets see what you’ve done! Remember to link back to this post!
Hosted by Nathan @ Fantasy Review Barn
Each Thursday, our copy of ‘The Tough Guide to Fantasyland’ in hand, we shall tour the mystical countryside looking for adventure and fun (and tropes) from all over fantasy.
Today’s Tour Topic is…Mentor
MENTOR. A tour official who will be at your service until halfway through the tour, when you will unexpectedly lose him.
The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa – there is an old vamp that turns a young girl and mentors her for a short while before of course conveniently disappearing and sending her off on her own.
Delia’s Shadow by Jaime Lee Moyer – a marvelous mentor in this one teaches Delia to control her gift of seeing spirits (she doesn’t abandon her though)
Sorrow’s Knot by Erin Bow – a young girl who’s been mentored her whole life by her mother is left to her own devices when her mother refuses to teach her any further.
