Arrietty the Borrower

Newer Older

From the 2010 Studio Ghibli movie Arrietty, which finally opened in the US this weekend. The Jelly family heartily recommends this movie to all Ghibli and Miyazaki fans!

It was dark and dismal in Seattle this weekend, so this wasn't shot under the best of possible lighting conditions (hence the shopped background). But the hand is a fully three-dimensional Lego creation, the palm rising several inches above table level. The ivy leaf is based on one plucked from the wall outside my Lego room. It all looks much more impressive "in the flesh"!

    Just saw this over the weekend, and you captured it wonderfully. That hand is utterly terrific - can't wait to see this under favorable lighting.

    The textures of the hand and the leaf is quite ingenious. Just the right amount of studs.
