Miki Falls Autumn p. 58-59 by markcrilley Miki Falls Autumn p. 58-59 by markcrilley
One of my personal favorite illustrations from the whole series. I was trying very hard to do something worthy of a Miyazaki film, as if Miki and Hiro were just about to stumble upon the den of Totoro. ^_^

Though it looks rather romanticized, I've come upon beautiful places like this in Japan very often, almost without even looking for them...

Sole-Reverie Featured By Owner May 29, 2010
SO beautiful! Fall is my favorite season! ^___^ i love how the leaves are blowing 'towards me' and how one of them is blurred. The perspective is awesome because it feels like i am at the top of the path standing there waiting for the other two to catch up with me. Love this! >w<

What a beautiful place, Japan is. That's why I wanna go there so bad! (I also wanna speak with Japanese people, since I'm taking my time to learn the language. o wo )
unsure2love Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2009
this is truely one of my favorite pictures of your series even though i never read them, yet:) but i would very like to becuase i find your art work extremely magical and inspirational. not only to other people out there but to me as well you have become an inspiration and a good role model to follow in foot steps.

This is one of your best pieces I find...the perspective is great as well a nice attention detail...even noticed a blurred out falling leaf which gives the illusion of motion in the picture...

ashtrayxx Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2008
i love how some parts of the drawing are completely still, yet some others depict movement (the leaves!).

very nice.
akaiichigo Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2008
I actually saw your little "music video" about Miki Falls on youtube and this particular piece caught my eye (moreso than all the other pics, of course ;3 ) It's just simply amazing!

wow really nice, was this coloured with watercolour paints or photoshop?
Daantei Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2008
all of those probably, from watching his Youtube vids, he draws the basic stuff in a light pencil, watercolours it, then adds the lines with his Prismacolour pencil (ive never seen one in my life).. he then edits it on photoshop to add cool effects (like teh slightly blurred leave I think)
Perfect-Chaos7 Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2008
