Running of the Boars by herringbonnes Running of the Boars by herringbonnes
secret santa for :iconsantasbonnet: in which I got to draw San from Princess Mononoke for :iconsho-kun:
nothing's greater than getting asked to draw a character you love!

I like how you drew the wolf, especially its face. It has a sort of woodblock feel almost. Like an old Japanese painting of an oni, which is very appropriate.

Wow, the Japanese Print style looks amazing and I'm especially lovin' the wolf! The colors too... they hold together perfectly! How awesome would it be to see an entire Ghibli movie in this style? @w@

ffffffffft ffft fffftttttttt nothing more epic than getting to draw San, indeed!! Gosh it feels like a gift for ME, seeing San in your gorgeous gorgeous style. I love the delicate way you painted her face (and her LIPS :heart: ) and just, gosh, your lines and the boars and the way you drew the wolf, damn, I love that so much~ :heart:

Amazing. Absolutely love seeing artists illustrate characters that are not theirs... get to see it in another style.

Yeah! The use of colour, the pose (a little), and the line art... Also the way in which the wolf's head is drawn.
You're welcome! (:

OMG this is just awesome, I couldn't have asked for a better santa <3
The wolf's expression is just so insane it drives me crazy :iconcryforeverplz:
And San is just fierce and wild as I love her. This is just jaw dropping... Everything is perfect in my opinion, the composition with the boars and San and the wolf stand out of the mass... this is perfect ! Thank you so muuuuuuuch, you've made me a real happy girl on Xmas day :'D

Thank you x 1000 :iconallmyloveplz:
