Often when I'm sick and feeling restless, I'll dig out an animation show or movie to watch and it usually makes me feel better. Last weekend was no exception and after watching Laputa: Castle in the Sky, I was inspired to do this piece. The girl is a model I drew from one of my life drawing sessions and all I knew when I began the piece was that I wanted to evoke the same sense of joy I got when I watched the movie. Mind you, a picture of a sexy girl is bound to make someone happy. *wink*
I have included some snapshots of the progression.
