A Witch by the Sea by MissDarling23 A Witch by the Sea by MissDarling23
I actually had some free time today now that midterms are over (thank the GODS)! I've been looking through all the great Ghibli fanart there is on here and I was totally inspired to do something with a Miyazaki character. It took me forever to decide, and then this idea popped in my head with Kiki and Jiji. I've had Kiki's Delivery Service on the brain the last couple of days anyway, so I thought I'd go with it. :meow: I just love the Paris-esque 1950's feel the town has in that movie. And of course I love the whole witch part too. :D
And just want to point out, Jiji was super fun to draw. :la:

Kiki's Delivery Service is copyright Studio Ghibli, Hayao Miyazaki :heart:

When I first saw this I thought you had been inspired by this painting by Dali [link] either way, this is lovely =] x

You're the second person to tell me that. :XD: It's funny because I didn't see the painting until after I drew it, and then I was like, "Oh my god it looks just like it!" Haha. :D Thanks so much!

Aww, how lovely! I like it too, but I think it's more of a German town. XD

I like how you drew her feet.

Thank you! :meow: Apparently it's a mix of a ton of towns all over Europe and even some in America according to Miyazaki. I just thought of Parisian because of the bread. :XD:
