The Forest Spirit by kalambo The Forest Spirit by kalambo
I am embarrassed by how little Ghibli fanart i have posted here considering Hayao Miyazaki's films are probably my biggest inspiration.
I have been in love with Studio Ghibli movies since i saw Spirited Away in the cinema when i was 7 ;w;

sagfdahdkajdkad i don't have time for a full background since i'm working on commissions too but there will be more ghibli fanart yes <33

But have a forest spirit. Princess Mononoke is one of my all time favs, plus it has an important environmental message for us all. As does Nausicaa, another favourite, and the Nausicaa manga is the best manga i have ever read *___*

Me: Wait, what? I thought you died!
Spirit: Ah, it was nothing to lose my head over.
Me: ...Really?
Spirit: Yeah, I went there. :D

When my brother and I were four, we used to have a ton of videos that we kept in a video cabinet. Princess Mononoke and the 1st Pokémon movie were the only manga/anime videos that we had. I first watched Princess Mononoke when I was five, and found the deer fascinating (though the black goo creeped my out a little, I was only five XD) thankyou for this.

Yeah, it was one of my first Ghiblis too. I fell in love with it right away x)
My dad took us to see Spirited Away when it came out in the cinema when i was 7 and since then I've been Ghibli crazy!
No problem! :)

Spirited Away is ridiculously beautiful ;w;
I highly recommend it. It's about a young girl who ends up trapped in a bathhouse for spirits and has to gather the courage to sort out her situation. Strong female characters, great story and beautiful animation, it's an amazing film : D
