Well everyone, I know I was supposed to go live today but unfortunately there was a humongous thunderstorm that took out the lights and left me with no power, hence no Livestream. Anyway, now that I am back on, I am about to show you guys "how to draw Sophie Hatter". This female character is from a British novel which was written from Diana Wynne Jones, named “Howl's Moving Castle”. The novel was first published back in 1986, and went on to win a Boston Globe-Horn Book Award. As a matter of fact the book did so well, that Japanese manga artist Hayao Miyazaki adapted the novel into an animated series. The anime series was also well recognized and was eventually nominated for an Academy Award. Anyway now that you know something about the novel, let's talk about the main character Sophie Hatter. She comes from a place called Market Chipping located in a magical kingdom named “Ingary”. She is best known for her needle creations as she makes nifty looking hats and dresses. She is certain that her life will never hold any purpose because she believes that she will whined up running the family business which is a hat shop. Sophie also believes that she will be cursed one day by the hands of the Witch of the Waste. This powerful witch is determined to turn Sophie into an old hag because she is mistakenly identifying her with Sophie's sister. In the story she is an eighteen year old girl that has red colored hair. She is also considered to be pretty even if she doesn't believe that to be true. In the tale, Sophie leaves the hat shop because Witch of the Waste turned Sophie into an old maid. Once that happens, she becomes a cleaning lady at Howl's castle, and she is determined to find a way to left the evil curse that the witch so wrongly bestowed onto her. Even though I have never read the novel, I am fortunate that my fifteen year old brother has. He is the one that gave me the 411 on not only the storyline, but the character as well. I think I will pick up this novel because it sounds rather interesting to me. For now though, I will teach you all who know of the story, "how to draw Sophie", step by step. I will be back with some really fun, exciting, and cool tutorials momentarily so stick around to see what they will be. Peace out people!
