Ponyo by toerning Ponyo by toerning
Finally watched Ponyo last night, and found it utterly charming. The story didn't blow me away but, as always, I LOVED the art. Anyway, just finished a dreadful week-long workshop on neorealist film so celebrated by doing a completely indulgent and un"significant" painting.
watercolor and gouache. I took progress shots of this and i'll put it together when i can figure out how to get the pictures off my camera...i'm not a picture person lol.

"The story didn't blow me away but, as always, I LOVED the art." – Just what I was thinking.
But the art AND story of this picture blows me away.

True, the story from Miyazaki's other films ('Spirited Away', 'Princess Mononoke', 'The Cat Returns', 'Howl's Moving Castle', etc) have a much better story. Howl's Moving Castle is my favorite, but I love his other films as well. Ponyo was a neat little jaunt into innocence, and Liam Neeson doing the voice of her father didn't hurt my chances of liking it any. All-in-all it's a good film. Not his best, but still a good film.

This is very cute. Brings back many good vibes from childhood. Cheers!


[Think aloud comments :
You could have not revealed your inspiration source: funny on how when 'fanart" is done from heart, it doesn't look like a fanart, but just like a great image :)

Many time I've been struggling against water refraction in painting. Finally, I can't believe how simple it can be : no refraction at all! : =D it works perfectly on this image. :thumbsup: (+ refraction would have ruined the understanding of image, + since it is a childhood memory, a children can imagine the world as is in head, so without refraction ^^). ]

Every time I ask my Dad if we can watch this he says,
"No, it's cute but not cute enough for me to watch it again."
Great job, love the colors! :)
