Howl and Sophie by DaEviliges Howl and Sophie by DaEviliges
She arrived on the landing and found Howl standing in the doorway of his bedroom. He was leaning lazily on one handm completely blocking her way.
"No you don´t," he said quite pleasantly. "I want it dirty, thank you."
Sophie gaped at him. ,,Where did you come from? I saw you go out."
"I meant you to," said Howl.
"You´d done your worst with Calcifer and poor Michael. It stood to reason you´d descend on me today. And whatever Calcifer told you, I am a wizard, you know. Didn´t you think I could do magic?"



Howl´s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones, page 73.


Lovelovelovelovelove!
Just a sketch I did in school. Will colour it this time because I think this is worth it ♥
Howl and Sophie are charackters of the best book in this whole wide world *__* <~fangirl mode
If you don´t know it, read it! And if you know the movie..READ THE BOOK!

The End.

I read the books like thousand times, so I really tried to capture Sophie
and not just copy the version of the Ghibli movie!

I just read the other two sequels Castle in the Air and House of many Ways~
But HMC is still my favorite, the other two are good but nothing got me
so much inspiration as this book :heart:
(and sorry for bad english and grammar :/ )

I agree HMC is the best one in the Wizards Castle series. You should read the Chrestomanci books(my favorite is the second one the lives of Christopher Chant), Fire and Hemlock, and the Dalemark Quartet and the Dark Lord of Derkholm(and Year of the griffin, I read this one first but I guess it is actually the second one). actually, I just love all of her books :D

Awww thats nice to hear.
Sure, I tried just yesterday to draw the scene where Micheal was trying to catch
the star, but I don´t think it turned out that good :/

Stimme zu; Bishi!Howl ist bishi :D Seine Pose und der Blick gefallen auch ;D
Aber ich kann gar nicht audrücken, wie sehr mir erst Sophies Gesicht gefällt *0* Hast die Züge und Falten super gesetzt, das bringt das Alter richtig schön natürlich rüber~
Bin mal auf die kolorierte Version gespannt :3
