Original Drawing, Hand Drawn. Equipment used in the drawing. Mongol Pencil, Bond Paper, Scanner, then I color and finish it with sketchbook pro.

My inspiration with these graphic art is the heroin Charlotte Ladram. in a superb thriller book by an English Author Robert Goddard. The book is a tour the force from the moment Beatrix open her first line. Up to the end. I have no option but to sketch up the Heroin. In an Anime form. To leave a lasting memory.

Book description

In her seaside cottage, Beatrix Abberley bravely confronts an intruder moments before her life is brutally taken. The crime stuns the elderly spinster’s family—especially Beatrix’s niece, Charlotte Ladram. But Charlotte has little time to mourn the loss of her beloved aunt and little patience when police quickly arrest a man Charlotte believes is innocent. For Charlotte, a harrowing quest for answers begins—one that will take her into the shadows of the past…and into the life and secrets of the dead woman’s brother, famed poet and casualty of the Spanish Civil War, Tristram Abberley.

Now, amid shattering revelations about her family, and in the aftermath of a second savage crime, Charlotte finds herself at the center of a widening storm. And for Charlotte, something extraordinary is beginning to happen. As fifty years of secrets begin to unravel, shy, cautious Charlotte is coming alive in the shadow of a mystery—uncovering a shocking tale of wartime greed and treachery, and a vendetta of violence seemingly without end….

I’m sure most of us past several stages of life.  Such as Death in the family, fatherhood, divorce, marriage, the other woman, girl friends, flings, poppy love, crush. With all the different categories i mention above. I think I’m belong to the bottom of the food chain.

Let’s call my crush lady D. First time I saw her when I was a fresh man in high school. While she was in the second year. I’m now in the 3rd year. Soon she will be gone, in the school. With out knowing my real feelings for her. My stock knowledge about her are very Limited mostly empirical.  I’m Just an observer. Out side of the circle.  I’m to shy or too coward to approach her. Or may be I’m too scared of rejection. What I notice about her. She likes to hang out with the boy’s crowd.  She is very good in handling her self. Anyway yesterday after when i was walking alone the hallway of our school. I accidentally collided in her path. I try to avoid her and move left. She mirrors me and follow left. I do the Floyd Mayweather duck and move right. She does the Manny Paquiao counter and move toward the right. Until we decided to pause for a second. To avoid a collision course.  I look at her face 10 inches away. Gee as if I’m in the matrix, bullet time mode friends. At the same time all my spider senses are perfectly working. Owe boy her two green eyes are so captivating. A glimpse of heaven. And her lips are so kissable. Gee she smells terrific. I may Sound like an advertisement ha. I take a deep breath and wish the moment will last a forever.

Press fast forward please. So an hour ago. What the heck. I decided to sketch her up. Taking advantage of the freshness of my Leica lens eyes while everything is still intact. This is the Rough Cut I’m talking about. I know it may look like a mugshots on one of those Criminal investigation scenes. Please bare with me. I will do a couple of adjustment before I deliver the final product. It’s all base on my fascinating experience. I’ll get back to you guys soon.

Two summers ago I went to the province of La union. To visit the beautiful beaches. While I’m strolling in one of the town. By accident I meet a 14 year old girl name Coco. I try to grab her attention by showing her my latest Ipod Touch. It seems the idea didn’t work at all. After a few minutes of conversation. I learned that her educational attainment is only grade 5. A very common thing in a rural area. But what struck me the most, with her persona are the following. She speaks 5 different languages. Tagalog , Latin, French, Dutch and English. Plus countless numbers of local dialect. I ask, what is her secret. Because she seems to know a lot of stuff. She reply to me calmly and said. I’m a good listener and a wide reader. She also mention she lives in a place with a big collection of books. I only spend few moments with Coco. but Her personality is unique. its like I’m talking to a grown up wise woman trap inside a body of  a 14 year old girl.

Days and Months past bye. November 2011 school sem-break. A family of my closed friends in grade school. Invited me to visit the same province. I did not waste any time and grab the opportunity. When we reach La Union province. I practically didn’t spend much time with them. I went direct to the same place where I meet Coco. And ask the local people. About her where about.  I’m bit of a surprise. No body in that particular town seems to know her. My brief encounter with her becomes a big mystery. So I went back to Metro Manila. Shoulders down with empty bag. Thinking, playing in my mind. My brief memory encounter with Coco. over and over again. End of the story.

About the drawing. I try to recollect all my remaining memories with her. and sketch her image in an Anime form. The windmills as back drop is more of a symbolic. She disappears into tin air.

Equipment List. Pencil, Paper, Scanner, Ipad 2 tablet and Sketchbook Pro.

A tribute to a 1986 Animated feature film. by  Hayao Miyasaki. One of my All time top 10 favorite animated movie.

About the Film.

In the movie’s backstory, human civilizations built flying cities, which were destroyed during a catastrophe, forcing the survivors to live on the ground as before. Just one city, Laputa, remains in the sky, concealed by a thunderstorm. In the opening scene, a girl named Sheeta is escorted by sinister-looking agents under Colonel Muska. The ship is attacked by sky pirates led by an old, yet vivacious woman named Dola. Sheeta escapes through a window, but she accidentally falls from the airship. As she falls, a pendant she took from Muska glows and she floats. A boy named Pazu witnesses Sheeta floating, catches her, and takes her back to his home. He tells Sheeta about the floating city of Laputa and his deceased father, a pilot that saw Laputa.

Dola’s pirates arrive and pursue them, but they are cornered by soldiers. The children fall from a collapsing rail trestle and are saved by the pendant, leaving them inside the mines. They meet an old miner named Uncle Pom, who tells them of a mysterious, forgotten element called aetherium. Sheeta shows Pom her pendant, and he explains that it is one of the pure crystals used to keep Laputa aloft. He tells her that the power of her crystal belongs to the earth and that she should never use it to commit violence.

Sheeta and Pazu

After the children leave the mine, Sheeta reveals to Pazu she has inherited a secret name: “Lusheeta Toel Ul Laputa”. Then, the children are captured by Muska and the army and taken away to a fortress. A general and Muska discuss the search for Laputa and agree that Sheeta and her crystal are the keys to its discovery. Muska shows Sheeta a huge Laputian robot, reveals his knowledge of her secret name, and tells that unless she cooperates in the search for Laputa, Pazu will come to harm. Seeking to protect him, Sheeta tells Pazu that she has agreed to help the military, and asks him to forget her. Stunned, Pazu returns home, where he discovers Dola’s pirates occupying his house. He is captured and they decide to work together to rescue Sheeta.

Meanwhile, Sheeta absent-mindedly recites a spell her grandmother taught her, causing her crystal to point to Laputa. The spell also reanimates the robot, which wreaks havoc. The robot attempts to rescue Sheeta before it is destroyed by the Goliath warship, causing Sheeta’s pendant to tear from her neck and fall from the tower, which is later recovered by Muska. After the robot was destroyed, Dola and Pazu come and rescue Sheeta from the tower. The children and Dola’s pirates decide to pursue Goliath to Laputa and that night, Sheeta tells Pazu about the Spell of Destruction, a power she has never used, and that she wishes she’d thrown the crystal away.

As the children keep watch above the clouds in a glider, a massive stormcloud becomes visible, which Pazu recognizes as Laputa’s hiding place. As the pirates try to find a way in, the Goliath warship attacks and the glider is blasted away. After a harrowing ride, the children land in Laputa, which is devoid of human life; a robot takes care of the plants and animals.

The soldiers plunder the city’s treasures, holding the pirates captive. After locating a hidden entrance to the city’s core, Muska captures Sheeta and takes her inside. Pazu frees the pirates and finds another way into the sphere. Muska reveals to Sheeta that he is also an heir to the throne of Laputa, takes over all of Laputa’s technology, and uses it to activate hundreds of robots and wipe out the army and Goliath while Dola and the pirates hide inside the remains of their ship. Sheeta steals back the crystal from Muska and runs through the core of Laputa, trying to find a way to escape. She does, however, find Pazu, and passes the crystal to him.

Muska corners Sheeta in the throne room but Pazu enters and the children decide to use the Spell of Destruction. With a single word, the pendant triggers the collapse of the city’s core. Muska collapsing of the case prepares now kill her falls to his death, while Sheeta and Pazu are saved by the tree’s roots. They find the glider brings of the gone of before spinning destroyed escaping of the way in the tree’s roots nearby and use it to leave Laputa. Dola and pirates the one battle of destruction of earthquake to past first stand up forgots hole blast up and are reunited with the children, with some Laputian treasure as a compensation. The ending credits show the remains of Laputa continuing to rise, establishing an orbit high above earth.

About the Director.

Hayao Miyazaki (born January 5, 1941) is a Japanese manga artist and prominent film director and animator of many popular anime feature films. Through a career that has spanned nearly fifty years, Miyazaki has attained international acclaim as a maker of animated feature films and, along with Isao Takahata, co-founded Studio Ghibli, an animation studio and production company. The success of Miyazaki’s films has invited comparisons with American animator Walt Disney, British animator Nick Park and Robert Zemeckis; he has also been named one of the most influential people by Time magazine.[1][2]

Born in Bunkyō, Tokyo, Miyazaki began his animation career in 1961, when he joined Toei Animation. From there, Miyazaki worked as an in-between artist for Gulliver’s Travels Beyond the Moon where he pitched his own ideas that eventually became the movie’s ending. He continued to work in various roles in the animation industry over the decade until he was able to direct his first feature film Lupin III: The Castle of Cagliostro which was released in 1979. After the success of his next film, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, he co-founded Studio Ghibli where he continued to produce many feature films until his temporary retirement in 1997 following Princess Mononoke.

While Miyazaki’s films have long enjoyed both commercial and critical success in Japan, he remained largely unknown to the West until Miramax Films released Princess Mononoke. Princess Mononoke was the highest-grossing film in Japan—until it was eclipsed by another 1997 film, Titanic—and the first animated film to win Picture of the Year at the Japanese Academy Awards. Miyazaki returned to animation with Spirited Away. The film topped Titanic’s sales at the Japanese box office, also won Picture of the Year at the Japanese Academy Awards and was the first anime film to win an American Academy Award.

Miyazaki’s films often incorporate recurrent themes like humanity’s relationship with nature and technology, and the difficulty of maintaining a pacifist ethic. Reflecting Miyazaki’s feminism, the protagonists of his films are often strong, independent girls or young women. While two of his films, The Castle of Cagliostro and Castle in the Sky, involve traditional villains, his other films like Nausicaä and Princess Mononoke present morally ambiguous antagonists with redeeming qualities.
