Ghibli Guitar by vivsters Ghibli Guitar by vivsters

Studio Ghibli! Ponyo, Spirited Away, Laputa, Princess Mononoke, Howl's Moving Castle



Gift for my friend! (not the guitar, I just drew on her guitar :P)

Drawn only using sharpie markers! You can watch the process here: [link] :D

Many people have asked me about my 'washing' technique - it's really not anything special, just smudging the ink while it's still dry. Another thing I do is blend light colors with dark colors. Basically, just a lot of experimentation with Sharpie markers. They're not as permanent as you think, so feel free to be creative with them!

I've also had some requests for guitar designs. I would love to do them, but there are many technical problems involved (shipping, storage, payment, etc.) that I really can't handle, so at the moment, requests are really only open to friends or people I know! Sorry!



check out my other guitar:

Gorgeous! Very nice how you smudge the wet ink to get that watercolor effect. Have you done any electric guitars?

You used nothing but sharpie? No sanding or puting clear coats on it?
Also, has it started to rub off at all?
I want to do something slightly similar for my boyfriends guitar but I'm afraid of ruining it or having it rub off.

Very nice artwork, I like the flow of the work and the elements of the 6 films as they work very well together! I'm a fan of Studio Ghibli.

I did a similar thing to an old guitar that we couldn't put strings back on,
mine wasn't a color drawing though
