"Being the top animated studio to win the many hearts of young and old, Studio Ghibli had created un-forgettable and powerful animated films filled with endless creatures and stories to be remembered for years. Closing down, truly, the hardest thing anyone of us could ever hear."
Artistic fans, such as Risachantag, created tribute art for their favorite Studio Ghibli films and have poured their hearts into bringing their masterpieces to life for everyone to enjoy.
As a tribute towards this, I've chosen a couple of Ghibli artwork that simply stole my heart and hope they can steal yours too.
(Unless Howl has stolen your heart already.)
But here are just a few of my personal favorites...
I would've honestly purchased this as a huge poster if it were actually part of the film products. This art piece is cute, simple but gorgeous; using swirling colors and shadowing effects with a color blend. How calm and energetic this piece is, truly remarkable and un-forgettable. Feel free to check out RinTau's gallery, you'll simply enjoy it!
2. Howl's Moving Castle
Imagine if the studio had created the film with the characters appearing like this? That would be pretty interesting, I kinda like the idea, do you?
Yet, I wish I could draw like this too, it's simply amazing; I just love it.
Feel free to check out Daekazu's gallery, it's truly outrageous!
3. Kiki's Delivery Service
"Chase the clouds from the ground
In the big blue sky don't wanna watch it all blow by
So I'm gonna fly
Higher then I ever could"
This artwork is simply beautiful and just fits with the lyrics that I typed up within the quotes. Jiji simply looks funny with a shocked look, as always while Kiki and Tombo look so cute while they fly together; I honestly ship this OTP.
Feel free to check out TinySaucePan's gallery, the artwork is truly on point.
4. Spirited Away
This is honestly a breath-taking piece of artwork. I couldn't simply just put the official wallpaper, the process is pure perfection.
Feel free to check out JoJoesArt gallery, you'll truly beg for more art!
5. Princess Mononoke
The energy flow of this artwork just excites me, running through the forest with the spirits and the animals; kinda like Pocahontas and John Smith in a funny way.
Feel free to check out Mariposa-Nocturna's gallery, the artwork is just detailed and perfect.
6. My Neighbor, Totoro
This re-drawn scene of the movie is simply moving and just colorfully harmonious. Looks just like the scene from the actual movie, I just love it.
Feel free to check out the rest of Apfelgriebs' artwork, it's so touching.
7. Castle in the Sky
-A moment of silence to appreciate this piece of amazing artwork-
Feel free to look at the rest of Vtas' artwork, it's simply gorgeous.
8. Grave of the Fireflies
I usually tend to cry when I see this one film, it just strikes you in the feels, but the art is just as heart-wrenching. The feelings swirling within this piece of art are just overwhelming. Yet, feel free to look at the rest of Caphricorn's work!
9. The Cat Returns
Hazy, silent, but a tad romantic with a calm feel. I simply adore this piece of art. Check out the rest of theSheyPYG's artwork, you'll just beg for more!
10. Group Drawing
Conclusively, this artwork just puts the icing on the cake, this artist has re-created all the fun loving characters into one piece of art that just collectively combines all the characters. Feel fee to look at Hyung86's artwork, I guarantee that you will TRULY beg for more!
