Like the blade of a knife by JWiesner Like the blade of a knife by JWiesner
Original song: www.youtube.com/watch?v=8v9Dzf…

In the moonlight I felt your heart
Quiver like a bowstring's pulse
In the moon's pure light, you looked at me
Nobody knows your heart

When the sun is gone I see you
Beautiful and haunting, but cold
Like the blade of a knife, so sharp so sweet
Nobody knows your heart

All of your sorrow, grief and pain
Locked away in the forest of the night
Your secret heart belongs to the world
Of the things that sigh in the dark
Of the things that cry in the dark

__

Princess Mononoke! Was about time. An all-time fav movie.
Besides, my recent fanarts were getting too one-sided. :'D

Tales From Earthsea is an equally epic movie, except it's not about "Humans and Nature" but "Life and Death". Speaks to me personally a little more. Also it got dragons in it. Watching the beginning of the movie gives me the goose skin. Be sure to turn the volume up.

THE TRAILERS SUCK AND SPOIL THINGS just go watch the movie if you haven't!

So, before I start with anything just keep in mind that THIS WORK is just amazing. Just remember it, if I say anything annoying (which won't actually happen i guess....)

SO lets start! This piece Is quite detailled, especially on the mask and her coat or fur. I saw the movie and the most amazing thing you've mastered on this piece is the mask. In the movie it isn't way so detailled as yours. But this absolutely fits into the style Sen had in the movie. So you did a great job on this!

The kind of dusty background gives a great feeling, which is really near to the emotions you have while watching the movie.

The only thing I could mention is, that you have could worked a little more detailled on the backround. In the film was this little village of the humans, this would have fit right in here. But this is less important than the fact, that you'd a great work!

KEEP ON ROCKING!

The art work is lovely, but in some parts are undefined. I feel the background could have been more detailed in the very back.and I feel the sky is partly done unless you wanted it to be part starry and part empty. But over all it's a masterpiece. The use of techniques you used is amazing and looks like a true anime from japan, and the originality in this is truly seen and how you interpret the song. The shadows in the background though if you look at it from a distance it looks too dark. The mask the pale colors seem to draw more attchion to the shapes than the overall picture

Your art style compliments her so well! I love this piece. A lot of artists try to soften her or do a beauty art of her. She is supposed to be the embodiment of the wild, savage nature of the animals she loves. This is perfect. I think she is more beautiful this way.

Exquisite.

AH, THANK YOUU! :heart:

I'm so glad you saw what I tried to achieve in this portrait. I don't mind the pretty portraits people make about Princess Mononoke, it's their own style, but I personally don't recognize her true personality in those. I enjoy stressing that when I draw characters. It's also my way to show appreciation for them. :D

When I see the pretty portraits, I see people trying to relate to her human side. Which pretty much makes me think they missed the whole point of the movie...or didn't see it. To each their own, the movie is awesome. It is also the first Anime I ever saw, and holds a special place in my heart.

Also, I rarely see anyone draw Ashitaka or Yakul, even though they have the most screen time. Kind of ironic, actually.

Well, to be honest, Mononoke and the wolves are much more fun to draw and see than Ashitaka and Yakul. xD

Aww, I really liked Yakul.

I guess she is more fun to draw, and her wolf pack is beautiful.

Cool Mononoke art. I've seen the movie although it was never released in the Netherlands. I even got my hands on a European DVD version :)  Great movie! Have Tales from Earthsea too.
