Arrietty: New World by YoukaiYume Arrietty: New World by YoukaiYume
Arrietty fanart! Arrietty and Spiller! post movie. (which is why she doesn't have her hair clip)

I know that Mary Norton, the original author of "The Borrowers" intended for these two to eventually end up together. I always loved how wild and unkempt Spiller was in the Ghibli version. Does anyone else think of Tarzan and Jane when they see these two? lol.

I do have a mild complaint that the English dub made him sound more caveman-like than he really is. In the Japanese version he just seemed the more crude but silent type. Instead of all... grunty.

But I DO like the voice for Sho (Shawn) a ton more in the dub! He sounded way less creepy.



WHERE DID I FIND THE TIME TO DO THIS?! D8

Sketched this last year, but never put on colors until... last night. It might not be too clean, but whatever. Right in time for Sakura Con 2012! See you guys there!

Love this!!! A very cute but subtle moment between the two, and I particularly love your 'splodgey?' style. I totally agree about the dubbed vs non-dubbed voice acting as well. I really didn't like that they made Spiller sound like a dumb cave-man. But yes, Sho's voice I felt was much more natural. :D Keep up the great work!

So I totally just watched this movie after seeing this picture... how did I not even know about this movie before!? I wish it had shown a bit more between Arrietty and Spiller though, he was hardly in the movie at all and I think it would have been nice if he got just a bit more screen time.

I saw the movie myself, and I'm glad I'm not the only person who is thought to be a moron by people now. (People in Japan liked it. Get Japanese, then get with the program, PEOPLE!!)

Heh, I love this pairing <3 But I thought in the books she and Spiller had a fight and then she started hanging out with that guy from the church in the last book. Peagreen, I think?

I was so sad when Arriety came out; mainly cuz I was so stoked about seeing it, then it didn't even come to the theater in my town, nor the neighboring ones. TT_TT needless to say I was heartbroken.

BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN I WON'T LOVE IT WHEN I SEE IT!!! I LOVE ALL OF MIYAZAKI-SANS MOVIES!!! XD
