Princess Mononoke- The forest guardian

Author Comments

I created this piece for the draw with jazza challenge of the month. I chose princess mononoke and tried to stick to more natural forms of leveling her up. By utilising skulls and teeth it better fits the style of the film, rather than traditional armour.
I was very out of my depth for this piece as i never normally draw backgrounds or complex poses but i pushed myself for this challenge

The link below is to wip shots of this piece :


This is a really ambitious piece. I can really tell you pushed yourself and it has paid off. The princess is stylized very well and you not only captured her at level 99, you captured a very well executed action shot in fantastic detail.

I knocked a star and a half for the wolf. The faces is good not great and the fur is detailed enough but flat. However, where it really falls short is in the proportions and posing. The rear legs appear short in comparison to the body and the forelegs are tucked unnaturally under the Princess. In fact, so much so that it makes her look like she is mounted on the side of the beast instead of on its back. That is a serious distraction for me as I ponder the piece.

I don't say this to slam the art or the artist, but I know how easy it can be to become so immersed in a piece that you lose track of parts of it. Good job overall and good luck in the contest!

Oh no I completely understand thank you for your critique. I was a constant battle and I just couldn't get it quite right so I decided to leave it where I was happiest in the overall concept. Have a lovely day ~ x
