Alex Makes Art #86

Hi there! How's it going? Well, I hope. Art time! This week I saw Brave (review pending) and afterwards I was really in the mood for a Miyazaki film- something about seeing more animated strong female characters, I guess- and so put on Howl's Moving Castle, one of my favorites. I've been meaning to do more anime-inspired art so I put together a poster design that sort of mirrors my Princess Mononoke poster. I chose to highlight the moment at the end when Sophie gives Howl back his heart, since I liked the line "A heart is a heavy burden". I think it came out nicely, and it's for sale in my shop.

I'm also working on a piece for Katara, my favorite character in the series Avatar: The Last Airbender. I know I'm way behind the times but I just finished the show last week and knew I had to make something inspired by it. Here's the pen sketch of the character, I hope to have a digitally-colored version finished over the weekend.
