My Personal Scan

Here's the wizard "Howl" Jenkins, and his new cleaning lady Sophie Hatter. The continuity problem with this is that Sophie would never have worn such a bright dress before she was transformed into an old woman, and after the spell was broken her hair remained silver (in the film, at least). But anyway, I am absolutely enchanted with the detail in her dress and hair...

The absolutely gorgeous black and white image on the reverse of Howl sulking in his hybrid man-monster incarnation can now be found in it's full glory here; the aptly named 'Howl'.

    I was going to point out that she would never wear such a dress when I read what you wrote... -_-
    I was quite surprised that her hair remained silver in the end... but when he said ''Sophie! Your hair has the same color as the stars!'' I thought ''Whoa! Then, that's ok! ^_^''
    The dress is very cute tought, and he looks as handsome as always! >_< KYA! *_*
    The reverse side looks great, he seems more stable than in the movie... black wings are the perfect accessory! ;)
    Thanks for sharing! ;D

    Colourful and very intricate. Still done by Tukiji Nao? It sure looks like it since there are lots of elements crammed in the pic & in his/her case, 'crammed' certainly doesn't mean that it is a bad thing.

    Very good scan here.

    As far as I can recall, her hair (along with everything else) returns to normal in the book. Granted, the movie was a huge departure, story-wise, but I'm not complaining. Mmm, Howl.

    This so pretty! I loved this one! Sophie's hairstyle is so pretty and elaborated! Her dress is gorgeous too! I liked the gems, they seem so real and Howls is looking so handsome here! calcifer is cool to in a kind of boy form...
    The black border really highlights the content and adds a sense of light very interesting.
