Howl’s Moving Castle concept art - Living Room in Howl’s Castle

“The room only has one window so I first conceived a drawing where a single ray of light shined against a post in the dark room. I made the drawing just to convey the atmosphere, but its lighting was so dull it clashed too much with the characters. I still made the room dark for my concept art, but I cam up with color tones in conjunction with a lighting design and dusty setting that would enhance the characters”

- Art Director, Yoji Takeshige

Here’s steps for a painting that was pretty defining for me as an artist. It’s a bit older now, but still gives me feels and feels belong on a tumblr. Took three or so days I believe, all from imagination.

The Egyptian Mona Lisa

I never get bored of people playing around with DaVinci’s, especially when non-Western artists provide their own take on the ever-mysterious painting that is the Mona Lisa.

Here, Egyptian illustrator FaTma WaGdi places herself wearing a hijab in her digital rendition of this 16th century portrait, poking fun at the expressionless original subject.

Animated artwork by Rebecca Mock

Fine, detailed and subtle animated artwork created by New York illustrator Rebecca Mock. Apparently the animated gif back to stay, gradually more and more people are exploring this old format and customers asking for shouting. Several of these illustrations were created for the New York Times or The Warlus magazine.
