Miyazaki inspired



Thankfully, my deadline was pushed back (that almost never happens) so, I have a little extra breathing room. Thus, last night after watching the story reel of NAUSICCA, this ended up in my sketchbook. The values could use some work but, it's kinda fun.

Do yourself a favor and pick up the DVD release of NAUSICCA: VALLEY OF THE WIND. Miyazaki's storyboards are staggeringly beautiful. He has such a loose, confident line and his compositions are fantastic.

Nausicca!? Why does he keep talking about Nausicca? This is obviously inspired by TOTORO! Shut up.
