this is the best howl picture that i have found on this sight thus far... it saddens me that this isnt a more popular picture and the ONLY thing that i wish was different was that you did the blonde howl instead xD (black howl is fine though just a personal preference with the blonde xDD)
It truly is beautiful. People often forget that Howl, with his child's smile and bright eyes, is not as bright as he seems. Probably why he dyes his hair, though his vanity has a lot to do with that.
Howl is like an onion, so many layers you'd get lost in them. I think you did an amazing job bringing that to the surface. (Sophie is the only woman who can handle him. XD Unlike others who try peeling each layer back, Sophie solved the problem with a knife, slicing clean to the heart of the matter. HAR HAR.)
This is amazing! Your style is beautiful and the coloring is fabulous! Why would we feel offended? I mean...I don't know about the others but I don't feel offended at all. In the movie sometimes he's a little hard to deal with but they show him way better than he trully his...you know, when I was reading the book, sometimes I though "I hope Sophie slaps him" or "OMG! I can't believe she didn't yell at him!!!" ...he has a dark side so don't worry. This is really really gorgeous and you made a fantastic job
