This is wonderful! I love the realism. You were really able to capture the essence and passion of Nausicaa. That is her, no doubt. I love it. The fallen warrior in the distance was a nice touch also. Great work!

I love that movie. :) It's neat to see Nausicaa portrayed in a realistic style (not that there's anything wrong with Miyazaki's.)

She looks awesome! She also looks like the sexy girl for the 5th element.

incidentally, because of a childhood accident that involved a washing machine and the curse from a voodoo preistess, i've been blessed, or cursed, with that said ocean breeze scent. it's my gift, and my curse.

I wouldn't have been able to tell you ho'ed unless you told me. The final result looks great. I like her hair and the Ohm exoskeleton turned out very well.

I really like this picture, especially that you've made her look realistic. I like her face and the expression she has too. This picture almost makes her come to life.
It's great that you did something different, instead of trying to copy Miyazaki's style like many would do, or draw her, as people so ignorantly call it, in "manga style".

I think I know who you're talking about, but...maybe not because of the lack of plaited tresses.

Anyway, it's beautiful. She reminds me of Jean Grey from X-Men. It's the hair....

You are probably not enjoying any of this comment. I THINK IT'S WONDERFUL ANYWAY.

Wrong Nausicaa, lol. This one is from an anime by Miyazaki, called Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind- awesome movie, by the way.

Because that chick from the Fifth Element is HOT.

Haha, I dunno. I disagree that she looks like Milla Jovovich.

That's a very sensitive interpretation of Princess Nausicaa , very nice. It feels very much like a movie poster , so much so it got my imagination going... I like the brushwork , none of that over- rendered look so common to digital paint. Nice job.
