So before I begin: please check the art blog if you haven’t already cuz I posted some of my newer drawings! I think I will post a lot of my sketches in little dumps like that- you can follow me on Instagram if you want to see them fastly! :P
Anyway I kinda wanted to devote this blog to animated movies cuz yeah I love animated movies. And not just Disney, Dreamworks, etc. There’s actually some movies that I feel are underrated that I really love because they’re just so unique and beautiful! I feel like you guys should definitely know about ‘em!!
GHIBLI MOVIES!!! Ever since I discovered anime I was really inspired by the style, so I went on a hunt to find an appropriate, God-honoring anime to watch… but I haven’t found anything (if you know of a fine-for-me-to-watch anime please let me know J) until I found the Studio Ghibli movies. You guys probz know about them but if you don’t go check them out! Take a look at My Neighbor Totoro or Spirited Away. You can also look at The Wind Rises but it was a little grown-up-y for me. :P I have a couple other Ghibli movies on DVD that I haven’t watched yet; I’ll keep ya guys posted when I watch them!
The Secret of Kells (this one à https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Secret_of_Kells) Once upon a time I was browsing Amazon Prime and I stumbled upon this movie. It looked kinda interesting, and I thought “hopefully this will take up the next hour or so!” So I watched it. And I was AWESTRUCK! I started screaming because THOSE GRAPHICS ARE SO AMAZING YOU NEED TO WATCH IT TO UNDERSTAND!!! It’s kind of like a kid’s book that came to life, I guess. I think there’s another movie made by the same guys called Song of the Sea; I haven’t watched it yet but it is also available on Prime so I will watch it sometime this week and let you guys know what I think!
Houdini (this one à http://www.redbox.com/movies/houdini-2015 and this --> http://www.wildabouthoudini.com/2015/06/animated-houdini-coming-to-dvd.html ) Last Friday I was at Jewel with my mom searching for shtuff on Redbox (we were actually trying to find The Fault In Our Stars but failed) when I found this movie. I was kinda shocked cuz the cover art looked similar to how I draw… but then I thought it looked cute! And when I watched it, I started screaming AGAIN because the backgrounds were SO COOL AND PAINTERLY AND DO I HAVE TO MENTION HOW WONDERFUL THE STYLE THE PEOPLE DREW THE CHARACTERS IS??? I’m kind of sad though. It’s pretty hard to find this movie in America because I’m pretty sure it was French-ish. But besides Redbox I think you can find it on Amazon.
Okay I will stop screaming about movies and I am going to watch some good ole Gravity Falls—no wait, I think I need to do my reading assignment… Well whatever I’m going to do, I have to go now. BAIIIII!!!!!
