Someone to Protect by nikaworks Someone to Protect by nikaworks
I finally found someone I want to protect... You.

From Hayao Miyazaki's "Howl's Moving Castle".  Watched the movie again tonight.  Even though I love the original book to pieces, there is something undeniably beautiful about Miyazaki's rendition of the story...

Sophie looks very powerful in this piece. More powerful than this moment in the movie. You can see the strength that she's grown.

Aww, thank you for the comment!  Yes, I tried to depict a different kind strength—something maybe a little more visceral. I'm glad you like it!
