Castle in the Air by Strawberrybay26 Castle in the Air by Strawberrybay26
Did this for my portfolio class, my own version of a book cover for "Castle in the Air" by Diana Wynne Jones. It's the sequel to one of my favorite books; "Howl's Moving Castle."

Ah, you're style is so amazing and I love your rendition of all the characters!!! Not to mention all the details. You have a lovely, amazing style.
I was wondering if you might mind me possibly using this piece on my Youtube channel? (This is it: [link] ) I'm just about to finish up reading Howl's Moving Castle aloud and, naturally, Castle in the Air has to be read next since I can't leave an awesome set of books unread. I would just use this on the background of the videos and total credit would be given, of course, so you would get a sort of publicity. ^^
I just really love this piece; I think I'll go check out the rest of your gallery. :)

This is really beautiful. The composition drew my eye even as a thumbnail. The value patterns help hold interest. Nicely done; thanks for sharing!

The actual sequel to HMC is The House of Many Ways.

Chronologically Castle in the Air comes right after HMC, but Howl and Sophie are minor characters. They are more prominent in The House of Many Ways. So you can start wherever you want.
