Ponyo On the Cliff By The Sea by lord-phillock Ponyo On the Cliff By The Sea by lord-phillock
One of the rare occasions in which the picture looks almost exactly the way I thought it would... well, almost.

Insanely Zany Artist Notes-----------------------

This is less a "DVD-Release-style" as it is a movie-poster style advertisement. Sorry, that's just how I think: being a movie-making-sort-of-person.
The intention was to give a unique and "grand" look at the basic premise behind the movie. Obviously the majestic score is what made it look so "epic".

Seriously! Listen to the soundtrack and look at this painting! I think it works!

I also drew the characters as on-model as I could: because of course its the movie that's being promoted, and its best to stay as true to the idea, concept, and "look" at least of the main characters as possible.

Actually I think this would be better as the music album cover, as it more accurately reflects the epic scope of the music, rather than the playful almost child-created world of the film's visual style!

----------------------- End of Zany Artisti Comment

Thanks to Joe Hisaishi's very lovely work on the soundtrack of the film of the same name, which inspired this "poster" 100%.

I enjoyed painting this (from scratch) and will upload a bigger version sometime soon!

*UPDATE* Thanks for faving, guys. I lost to a screencap. :( Sucks.

also, please de-fave this, and FAVE THIS INSTEAD: [link]

I still can't believe you lost to screen cap. I can't believe how many people lost to a screen cap! I'm ashamed at DA for this.

I loved your entry. Hell, I wasn't even expecting to win because of this one! :D but can you believe it? being defeated by a screenshot :( what has the world come to?

regardless, I liked yours most out of all of the other ones submitted for this category :heart:

yup, that's why I'm very upset. So they get 500 for... what... pressing the prnt screen button?

Thanks, kumagoro. I don't usually enter these contests because I know I won't win thanks to great artists such as you! Seriously! But this time, I had a good feeling as it was "right up my alley". I was wrong.

actually I just found out that the picture was not a screencap... but still, it looks exactly like the still frame it was traced/copied from. Embarassing for all of us who actually did something creative...

WOW, Phil. Brilliant job, once again. What I love about this piece is that you paid so much attention to details, and yet the message is soooo clear. For example, the fish eye in the bottom right corner....It doesn't steal the attention of the main characters, but it causes the piece to interest the viewer. Whoever told you it was too complex was incredibly wrong. Every time I look at the painting, even when I'm trying to find something wrong, my eyes go straight to the two characters and the boy's facial expression. Bottom Line: LOVE it.

Forgot to say below

The land/water world and the ripples really add to the mystery of the movie and its story.

The lighting and fish also add to the mystery and provide very nice eye candy, it really portrays the idea :D

I know I'm horrible for just commenting, but I got so much in such a short amount of time, its hard to reply personally to you all! Especially if its just "thank you" over and over again! :) but rest assured, thanks!

I'm pretty proud of it because, as you know I love making films, so because there was a contest about designing a promotional piece for a movie I saw... I was instantly glued.
