Still working on art cards for Otakon 2012. This one's for a Studio Ghibli set and features Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind.
This was not only my first anime, but the first character I ever idolized. Yup, before He-Man, Superman, and Scrooge McDuck, my hero was Nausicaa (or Princess Zandra in the version I watched as a kid.) Even today, she's still one of my favorites, so drawing this one was a real treat.
