I assure you this is FAR BETTER than Miyazaki's style, in my opinion! It suits the book much more and, seriously, you are amazing *^* The expressions, the moves, the dresses... It's all perfect and so dinamic and natural! I LOVE IT!

Nice Twinkle. He's sickeningly cute, which is exactly how Jones wanted him to come off as.

Your sketches are always wonderfulThese sketches are wonderful - I especially love the way you draw Sophie, who looks like the curious young (and old) woman Diana Wynne Jones wrote her to be in her novels. I just love all of your Diana Wynne Jones art, actually. These pieces always make me want to read those books over again :3

Aw these are delightful. I loved the film too but it's refreshing to see some book fan art. It needs more love I think. I especially like your young and old Sophie :D

Twinkle!!! I was just about to ask if you had read House of Many Ways! Have you read Castle in the Air? also are you a fan of hayao miyazaki's depiction of the characters of Howl's moving Castle in the movie? I love your style :) I am a Diana Wynne Jones finnatic.

OH MY. It's Twinkly, Howl, and Sophie!!! I think your Howl looks loads nearer to the original than Ghibli's movie (I love Ghibli, but I also love the book. I love them both!)
Seriously, his EXPRESSION!
