Interlude créatif – Spirited Away

** Cliquez ici pour la version française **

Today’s fan art project is one that has been on my list for a while… yep, a new Ghibli fan art project joins my Ponyo, Kiki and Ni no Kuni projects! And this time we fly into the universe of Spirited away!

The first character I tackled is the famous Kaonashi (No face) character! I mean, we see the character knitting during the movie… I couldn’t pass that up!

While the character itself was not very hard to put together, once I got to its face I hesitated between painting on felt or embroidery…

It was not a very long hesitation since I suck am not very good at embroidery, so I put my acrylic paint pens to work!

Then I decided to crochet little Chihiro; the principal character of the movie! It was mostly a simple play on colors to get this little one done.

Still, I had a bit more difficulty with her hair, but overall it was a quick doll to work up.

It was equally easy to get the next character crocheted up… tiny Haku!

Of course these fan art project are quite easy when the characters have simple lines and bright colors!

This is also a reason why these Ghibli fan arts are so much fun for me… not too hard to figure out, a great excuse to watch fun movies and in the end a bunch of adorable collector dolls!

It had been a while since I’d worked on a fan art project that got done that quickly and during which I had such a good time!

The most challenging aspect of this project was, in the end, giving Kaonashi a little knitting project. I said earlier that I couldn’t pass it up so I had to get to it!

Let me tell you, knitting on toothpicks is not very fun… but one must make sacrifices in the name of art!

Aren’t they just adorable? My only regret is that maybe I should have also made Haku in his dragon form… but since it would have required a bit more mental gymnastics and I do like « mindless » creative breaks…

Still, I might revisit Spirited away sometime and well… who knows what will end up on my crochet hook!? 😉
