Sketch Journal and Earthsea

well! i could tell you about all the exciting things i have done lately but oops, i just did. that was it. but wait, i did actually watch a good movie yesterday. Miyazaki's Tales from Earthsea. It's a beautiful film. No one does backgrounds like Miyazaki. I was also impressed that they captured a feeling of different types of light in animation. However if you are a fan of Ursula Le Guin's Earthsea series it is probably to think of this film as a relative to them - perhaps a distant cousin. There is some resemblance but not that much. The movie is more enjoyable as a stand-alone work than part of the Earthsea series.

This is a page scanned from my art journal. I appear not to have dated it - it's from sometime last week.
