Moving Steamcastle by valkiria-art Moving Steamcastle by valkiria-art

Woohoo, something about 90 layers.
Full resolution: 3648 x 4000 px.

I think I'm finished with that.

My inspiration was "Howl's Moving Castle"- well, I think if you have watched this, you will recognize it very well.
At this moment this anime is one of my favourites. When I submited "Delirium" some of you said that "Delirium" is really similar to Howl's castle. I diidn't know who is Howl, what is "moving castle" so I decided to watch this anime and I'm really happy I did it!

Love this, of course. I finally found Howl, due to the kind direction of *Maylar, and now I've found your artwork which really feels like the story. I'm so happy. *runs off to collect it*

Kocham "Ruchomy zamek Hauru"! To jest mój ulubiony film animowany. Mam też książkę, na podstawie której powstał. Są to dwie całkiem różne historie, ale obydwie są wspaniałe i wciągające.
Polecam wszystkie filmy z wytwórni Ghibli, są cudowne.
Chyba niedługo znowu obejrzę "Ruchomy zamek...". Zrobiłaś mi smaka :P

Chciałam kupić sobie "Ruchomy zamek Hauru" ale nigdzie nie mogę go dostać! Chyba, że przez internet.
Póki co z tego studia oglądałam jeszcze "Laputę"i "Księżniczkę Mononoke". Mam nadzieję, że w niedalekiej przyszłości obejrzę wszytskie :D Bo rzeczywiście są genialne!;]

A nie oglądałaś "Spirited Away" (polski tytuł: w krainie bogów)? Mam na kompie kilka ich filmów, bo swego czasu miałam na nie fazę ^^
A "Ruchomy zamek Hauru" kupiłam w internecie, bo w mojej mieścinie na próżno bym szukała ;) Za jakiś czas może kupię sobie drugą część, choć podobno jest to całkiem inna historia o innych osobach, z tym że pojawia się Sophie.
Genialne są, genialne :)

It looks really nice, and I wouldn't mind living there either :)

One thing that bothers me a bit are the clouds in front of the bottom part - especially in front of the latter. I had to look two or three times to realize it was a cloud. It always looked like something was "bitten of" from the bottom part, because the cloud there was just so plain white. I had a hard time figuring that out.

Other than that, just beautiful.

You are right. I forgot to change it because I blurred this and the I realized there should be some clouds. ;|

Maybe it's just that I'm sick of clouds, cause it should be summer now, and it is raining all the time ;)

I know it's your own opinion but every suggestion or something like that is very imposrtant for me.

Probably you're right but I add this text on every my artwork so i didin't want to change the font only for only one art.

Anywya thanks for your comment!;]

So... welcoming. Like others said: Can I live there? I think everyone, more or less, want to live in a flying castle. :D

Technically, it's really good too. You got all the shadows the same way and the smoke and clouds are fantastic.

I think it's really amazing that so many people wish they lived somewhere magical, where world is such a different place. But this is why we have imagination! Einstein said "Imagination is more important than knowledge" and I think most of us will agree with this ;D
