STEAL YOUR HEART by deckthisout STEAL YOUR HEART by deckthisout

HOWELL JENKINS
or Howl
or whatever alias he is using

God I love this book. Like really.
Howl's Moving Castle. Book book book.
The Miyazaki movie is good too, but almost a completely different story.

still, i decided to take the movie's adaptation of calcifer because he is so adorable

this is one of those "let's start a sketch" then 50 layers later...


i seem to draw more when i am under pressure to get other things done :I

Aaaaah! I love the perspective, the guitar, the waistcoat, the magical-traveling-cloudy-swirl, the glassy green eyes, the pinky finger being poised with noble affectation...

I adore this book. It's one of my all-time favorites. I'm so happy to see a book version of Howl! And man, he is SO out to eat a young girl's heart.

I really love both on different levels. They are definitely different stories. I love the whole "war" aspect of the movie, how Howl is a warmonger, but the book's Howl is a lot more 3 dimensional. Pretty fanart; I love Calcifer's colors. <3

book > movie. every day. EVERY DAY. I am aghast at the number of fans of the movie who haven't read the book. Man, they gotta read dat thing. *sob* I read it because the movie was coming out and I ended up reading most of Diana Wynne Jones' books ;o; So amazing homg. Auuugh this picture is like amazing. I love the fluffy clouds, the perspective, CALCIFER. augh so much LOVE <3

BOOKVERSE FUCK YES, I don't see NEARLY enough book versions of Howl!

ahem

Now that that's over, I totally love what you did with this picture! Great use of perspective and guitar omg. I like how you interpreted his blue and silver suit too! The lace is a fantastic touch; did you ever read House of Many Ways or was the lace unrelated to that? :D

anyway I am fangirling too much but I love this picture.

I think the mauve is totally OK. It coordinates well and I think he was wearing a color like that at the end of Castle in the Air.

I had to rebuy some of my Howl books again recently, since I went mad loaning them out to people and then didn't get all of them back... anyway, i think it is fantastic. And seriously it's Howl, he is the most flamboyant man in Diana Wynne Jones' works (even considering Chrestomanci's bathrobes), you can't go too over the top on his outfit!

The coloring is gorgeous!! There's always something about orange and purple that's dramatic yet peaceful at the same time (probably because it reminds me of the sunset).
