I chose Hayao Miyazaki. Obviously I didn't even come close. I love his character development sketches, especially of small children. So for my project, I decided to do a charcter based on my older sister, Iwa. I asked my mom to send me a bunch of pictures of her as a kid for inspiration.
Here is the result.
And just for fun, here are my favorite pictures of kid-Iwa! ^_^
This one served as the inspiration for my storyboard project:
Love this one. Could be little Kiki!
And last but not least, my all-time favorite picture. This one describes quintessentially our childhood relationship. Iwa did something evil, and made me cry, but is looking like a little angel of innocence!
