Spirited Away by JoJoesArt Spirited Away by JoJoesArt
"Once you do something, you never forget. Even if you can't remember."


Yes, my Chihiro has blue eyes and she is older than in the movie, because this is my interpretation of her! :)

PS CS4, about 15 hours

First of all I would like to say WOW this is fricken amazing just wow oh my gosh this is so amazing. I happen to be one of those Spirited away fans and I wish the movie was done with your art it would have made it that more amazing. Haku looks so stunning I just want to reach out and stoke his head and go for a ride. I have seen many Spirited away Artworks but I must say your just might be the best. I always look forward to your work :3 Hope to see much more amazing things from you. ~Blue

This piece of art is simply exquisite! The vision is amazing; The colors stand out in the image while still flowing into each other. The blue in the background brings and unearthly feel to it and the warmer shades in the front bring depth to the picture. The textures in the picture are so finely detailed they almost look realistic, each line of the dragon's fur and each swirl of the girl's tunic add to the complete picture. The shading is nearly perfect; a tiny bit work could be done on the mane and fur, but other than that the shading is practically flawless. The eyes are what struck me the most about this picture! The bright and finely detailed blue of the girl's eye and the bright green of the dragons add to the fantastical feel of the picture. Pertaining to anatomy and structure frankly, I see nothing wrong! Overall, this is a beautiful piece and deserves the popularity it's getting, if not more! :heart:

I like your interpretation of Chihiro.  I saw her dealing with life changes from changing schools, neighborhoods and friends.  To becoming a woman.  such changes with parents just... not listening.  When Chihiro cared for another person, she found herself.  wonderful painting.  Great job.

This is the best depiction in this fandom I have seen so far and I'm loving it. I'm writing a fic now where they meet in the future (when Chihiro is 21) and this is how I picture them. Awesome job!

It captures Miyazaki while at the same time adding your own unique twist.

How breathtakingly beautiful! :wow: I really need to watch this movie again... and I don't even know where to begin with faving in your gallery, your art is so incredible... it's very humbling to think you're apparently half a decade younger than me, and light-years ahead of me in skill! I'm not really aiming to be a professional artist, myself, I just want to have fun, but still... your work makes me want to improve! :thanks:
