I have some pretty special tutorials going up today and I know most of you will recognize the first three. To start the day off I just had to go ahead and show you guys how to draw Arrietty, step by step. She is the main character in the Japanese anime fantasy movie ‘The Secret World of Arrietty’. One of the reasons why I am so excited to be doing these lessons is because the new film release is by the same individual that brought us ‘Ponyo’, Spirited Away’, and others. Disney is presenting the new release which is by Studio Ghurli and it should be in theaters February 17 of this year. Anyways, let me talk about who this lesson is based on. Arrietty is a little person that lives in a secret world under the floorboards of home in a suburban area. The reason why there is a lot of forest and foliage in her world is because the house that they live under is a garden home. The folks that live or own the house have no idea that there is a family of little people in existence. Once and a while they will emerge from their hiding to borrow things like sugar, or anything else they need. Arrietty is a fourteen year old girl that who literally puts her family at risk of being discovered when she becomes friends with a twelve year old human boy that comes to stay in the home. I loved making this tutorial on drawing Arrietty and I think you will too. The film is actually based on a very popular children’s book series called ‘The Borrowers’ wrote by Mary Norton. I have yet to pick up the series to read it for myself. Have fun folks and be sure to rate and comment.
