Howell and Megan Jenkins by Rozefire Howell and Megan Jenkins by Rozefire
Some wizards go to Hogwarts... others go Cwmtawe Comprehensive. Probably.

Howl's Moving Castle fanart featuring Howl and his sister Megan, before they were famous, as it were. They have what you'd call a hate/ok-going-now-kthnxbye kind of relationship. Since Calcifer described Howl as 'terribly vain for such a plain man with mud-coloured hair' I'm assuming he's naturally a brunette like Megan. (Who knows for sure?)

And no, I don't think any Welsh school would dream of having the national flag for a tie. That would be kind of silly. :D But they were beginning to look like Slytherins so I had to do something! :p

Texture from [link]

Tools: sketched in Painter 8, coloured in Painter 8, resized, texted and textured in Photoshop 7.

Time: Most of the night....

*is dead* :faint:

I love this! You don't see much HMC book art; just from the movie (which I loved, but only if I think of it as a separate story)

Very good
Tymiko Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2012
Aww! But at least Howl would actually /be/ a Slytherin, don't you think? XD He's ambitious, (was) generally selfish, and an expert 'slither-outer'. Love your depiction, by the way.
Hatterandahare Featured By Owner May 24, 2012

I love their expressions and their attitudes, even if I didn't know who it was I'd still know they were brother and sister ^^ And I like Howl's hand, it's very flamboyant almost XD Suits him ^^
Sun-Chips Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2009
......I LOVE YOU!
Salty-Fish Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
I really like how you did the expressions. Yay for book Howl!
overoncloud9 Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2009   Writer
i like their expressions. they'd make interesting characters
mousesandwich Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2009
I love it!!! My favourite part of the book is that Howl is welsh (i just generally love welsh people) and Megan is always forgotton. Thank you!!!
8na3hey1gbye Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2008
I love the expressions on their faces and the way you portrayed them. In my opinion, Howl's pretty fine...very nice...*cough* anyway, love it.
anna-becca7 Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2008
wonderful illustrations... that book is so inspiring ^^
everbliss Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2008
I love love love Howl's Moving Castle, and the fact that there actually is non-movie art (nothing against the movie, because I adore that too, but... the novel! the words on paper!) out there makes me squee with joy. Definitely :+fav:!
childofdarkness15 Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2008
These are very nice. You captured both of their personalities very well. It's refreshing to see an original interpretation of Howl/Howell, not just what he looks like in the movie.
mjvictoriano Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
Howell looks pretty handsome...
Always-Plotting Featured By Owner May 31, 2008
wow, i love the book and the film but they are both so stand alone when compared with each other. great immage
Gabonri Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2008
i love this! that is such a cute idea with the school uniforms. and youre one of the first people ive seen who's portrayed howl as i imagined him--esp the hair. the faces are absolutely brilliant!
Rinnbaku Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2008  Hobbyist Writer
The first thing I thought when I saw the title was "Moving Castle for teh Win!"

Howell had to have learned somewhere, and it makes sense if you've ever read the book...

Rinn ^_^
Aideko Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2008
I love the idea of Howl as a Slytherin, but I love him with brown hair even more. ^^
Your portrayal of them is very nice; the expressions fit their personalities, which are so different, very well.
nickyeo Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2008
da iawn! chwarae teg :)
i love this

nah i think a dragon on the tie is great!

the white and green its a great colour for a tie in Wales,
because of the leek (which is why the colours are white and green on the flag)
are you Welsh yourself?

this is a great piece :)
JuliAngelFace Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2007
I LOVE how you made Howl/Howell look like young Christian Bale Newsies era, put a red bandanna on him and he'd be Jack Kelly.
TaxiOnna Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2007
mah name's megan...>__>;; lol. this is such a cute fanart...(also definitely a face I would make...)

Awesome HMC book fanart! Instant :+fav:

I really am amazed at how well you captured their personalities. Fantastic work!

thats really cool!
kyodainahera Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2007  Student Artist
This is amazing in an incredible number of ways, of which there are way too many to list here. Let me just say the idea makes me giggle with fangirlish glee and the execution is fantastic. Howl looks absolutely incredible and I have to say he's still adorable even with mud-coloured hair. Also, Megan gets no love ever, so it's fabulous you included her. All in all, I love it. ^_^
chicachubb Featured By Owner May 5, 2007
Wonderful! First drawing of Megan I've ever seen, and it's great. If Howl had gone to Hogwarts, he'd be a natural Slytherin since he's described in the book as a "slitherer-outer."
blackmaze Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2007
Haha! I love this. It's quite funny. And it's very nice to see book fanart in addition to movie ;)

I love the idea of it, it make me giggle :giggle: Very well done. I love your coloring, it's very soft.
rescaelum Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2007
WOW! the most accurate ( in my humble opinion) picture of howl and meagan that i've EVER seen! it really captures the essence of the book, not just the movie!

my-daroga Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2007
This is really cute. I love her expression.

And thank goodness for some book fanart.
demonpanda Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2007
I love that book! The movie was good too but the book was way better!!...and i say this after i saw the movie then read the book not the other way around.

I think nothing captures Megan better than that picture ^_^ I really like how you are doing book Howl's Moving Castle as opposed to movie. It is very original and lovely.

Cool! At first I thought it was HP fanart, but this is even better! I love that movie! ^___^

Howell is way sexy...nice. And I love Megan's expression! =D
The know what I'm gonna say!! hehe, lovely colors make me happy!! And the hair is wonderful!!! 8)

HA!! I remember who Megan reminds me of!! Diana from Martin Mystery...(kid crap, i know. but life is boring sometimes!!) The look on her face reminds me of how Diana looks when Martin's being stupid and annoying. Pardon my outburst. It was quite uncalled for...but it was uncanny, the resemblance!

Howl and his sis, so cool! I love that book.
