    With luck those measures won't be needed, honestly. I'd prefer not to live on Tuchanka Mk.2, you know?

    Ah, that film. I'll be seeing it with a friend when it releases here in Oz.

    Was it good?

    Yes. Very much.

    If you're familiar with Shinkai Makoto's works like Byousoku 5 Centimeter, Koto no ha no niwa and Child Who Chases Lost Voice (Hoshi wo ou kodomo), you won't be disappointed with Kimi no na wa. Art is 100/10 as expected. Shinkai managed to turn your typical youth film genre (seishun eiga) into a quality artistic film that leave you with a warm, fuzzy and lingering feeling in your heart after it ended.

    I'll already ordered the novel version, the scores, and will buy a DVD/Blu-ray copy of it when it's available; I like collecting wonderful anime films like Ghibli's and Oshii's.

    ...I'll probably go and watch Kimi no na wa in theatre again.

    Only a day? Could have fooled me :V

    Looks great though! I'm getting a real miyazaki feel from this piece. From all of your pieces, in fact. I take it you're a fan?
    As for critique it looks pretty good so far. Some parts are a bit flat, like the telephone pole and there seems to be a lack of shadows in general. Since its a WIP ill just assume you haven't gotten to that but its something to keep in mind I guess.
    Otherwise it looks great~ Can't wait to see the finished piece!

    Yes, I'm a fan of Miyazaki and Ghibli's films, and other notable directors like Shinkai, and Hosoda.

    Yeah, some parts are flat, and I'm trying to unflat them. Let's see if I can finish this piece.

    Usually adding dramatic shadows and working around a light source is a good way to add depth to a piece. I'd suggest figuring out where you want the light to come from, draw it on your canvas in another layer, and use that to determine where the shadows and highlights are. This will add depth to your piece and hopefully unflatten it!

    Like the cell shading in that other piece you posted. Can definitely see the influence of all of those directors you named.

    Congrats! That must feel pretty good~

    Also progress on the landscape is going well. Still looking a bit flat, particularly the telephone pole, but I really like the bit you added.

    Ok so since I feel in a rambling mood imma explain a little more of what I'm talking about. When doing backgrounds, the interplay of light and shadow are really important in making your background look 3D. If you look at the backgrounds artists like Miyazaki, you can see how bold shadows give the landscape a feeling of depth. They always look like they exist in real space, as opposed to a flat piece of paper.

    [​IMG]

    In particular I'd like to point out how the telephone pole is shaded, the shadows different objects in the scene cast, and how objects in the middleground and background are colored lighter to give the illusion that they are farther away. Another thing that might be useful is noticing the bold shading on the plants and trees, and how the dark shadows make the lighter parts pop out and once again make the tree look like it exists in 3D space. In general, I suggest you experiment with using bolder shadows in your piece and seeing how it goes.

    If you are having trouble with backgrounds in general I would suggest going out and taking pictures of landscapes or getting them off the internet and practicing painting those. Pay attention to how light and shadow interact and the way all of the elements in the scene are placed in space.

    Hopefully you find this helpful! I still think the piece looks lovely, and it's going to be great once its done!

    More artwork from Your Name? Did you end up seeing the film twice after all? I'll be catching it at 4PM on the day it releases here in Oz, also known as next Thursday/the 24th November.
