Princess Mononoke : もののけ姫
*watermarks will be removed before printing
This piece is part of my fanart series dedicated to one of my greatest inspirations, Hayao Miyazaki. Art is printed using Canon ink on Canon Paper Plus Semi Gloss paper, available in sizes *4x5 or 8.5x11 (Canon Paper Plus Semi Gloss paper has a soft glossy finish with low glare).
Besides all the obvious reasons to love San, (she's beautiful, independent, an anomaly, moody) the thing I love most is that she's detached from a desire for power. In today's society we are so concerned with accumulating more power.💸📈🌟 This is reflective in the movie from Aboshi + iron town and the emperor; they all tried to take power from the forest/forest spirit🌱. It's ironic that San, a wild girl raised by wolves, shows more humanism than the actual "humans." 🤯
Last year, I got a trial subscription for HBO max to binge watch all the Hayao Miyazaki films they had. While watching Howl's Moving Castle, I took screenshots of my favorite scenes. Then I transferred the screen shot to my phone so I could look at the scene while illustrating it in Procreate. This is a made-to-order piece that will be printed and packaged personally from konekokaci’s apartment. Art is placed in a cellophane bag for protection and shipped in an envelope. I may need a few days to let the ink set + get to the local post office. :)
