Farewell, Old Friend by Shiroiyuki3 Farewell, Old Friend by Shiroiyuki3

A fond farewell to a dear friend. I thought it would be a sweet way to pay tribute to his last work by his newest characters sending off a little paper airplane, a childlike image which captures the man's childlike wonder and creativity. I hope you like it ^_^.

I can't wait to see this movie! It looks so gorgeous, just like all of Miyazaki-san's work.


Drawn by hand with ink and copic marker, edited together with background in GIMP.



I would be honored if my artwork could be on display at Studio Ghibli ^_^

I'm not sure if...you're genuinely being kind or if you are being sarcastic?

But thank you ^_^.

I thought he changed his mind about retiring?

Shiroiyuki3 Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
OMG...I hope so. Last I had heard this was going to be his last film. But I would be ecstatic to hear otherwise!

*goes to look into it*

I guess nothing official has been said, but he could always change his mind

Yeah, I really hope you're right. Honestly, I can see why he'd want to retire and start taking it easy, enjoying his life, etc. , but I still selfishly wish he'll change his mind and keep going. His films have inspired countless people ALL across the world :heart: .
