In Studio Ghibli’s Movie “Howl’s Moving Castle” there’s a dream sequence where Sophie is looking for Howl, and while she is she finds him at the end of his room which has been changed to be this overfilled hallway. That’s where I got the inspiration for this picture.
In the picture itself there are a lot of references to my own life (the saxophone, books, ect.) but there are also a lot of references to media I like (major’s mask, ect.) I don’t expect anyone other than me to understand all the references, but I put them in there anyway. It was pretty fun.
I’m thinking about doing a colored version, but I’m not sure yet.
I am beautiful. Not because I have perfect make-up, because I don’t (I don’t even know how to apply make-up) and not because I have the cutest, most fashionable clothes, because I don’t. It’s not because I’m super skinny or have clear skin, because I’m don’t. Not because my hair is never out of place because it always is (I love it anyway). These aren’t the things that make people beautiful.
I’m beautiful because I’ve tried my best. I’m beautiful because I try to help others. I’m beautiful because I smile. I’m beautiful because it’s hard, and I do it anyway. I’m beautiful for times I haven’t received recognition, and I’m beautiful for every time I proved I deserved it anyway.
I’m beautiful because I try my hardest to make others beautiful as well.
Even if sometimes I fail.
