Group Info


This is (surprisingly) the first group dedicated to the amazing author Diana Wynne Jones and her work.
Her most famous work would probably be "Howl's Moving Castle" since it has been adapted as an animation movie by Ghibli Studios and the fantastic Hayao Miyazaki. However, she has written over 30 books and has been awarded innumerous times.
This group, however, is for fans of all of her books and series. We know there aren’t a lot of fan arts out there so let’s us work together and make this an active group for all types of fans of her work.

We're about to reach the mark of 100 members and we already past that on the watchers numbers! I can't tell you how happy I am because - when it comes to DWJ - this has nothing to do with having a big group or "being popular". I just love that we are finally aware of who we are, that we can provide feedback to other fans and get to know each other. This makes me honestly happy.
Meanwhile, I'd like to point out some things.

:bulletblue: I will now create a folder for Diana Portraits since we're getting a lot of those.
:bulletblue: I'm taking suggestions as to what folders you people think need to be created.
:bulletblue: I'll be adding the fanfiction folder so feel free to submit stories as well.

Also, every now and then I receive messages from you guys pointing out glitches or something that I let slip, please don't stop sending me those. I always try to fix them right away but sometimes I read the message while at school and forget about it later because, hey, I'm not the cleverest of girls. So, please, whatever it is that you've seen. Send me a message about it!

Meanwhile, I'm considering a themed contest for some time soon but 'till then, I'd be willing to get suggestions from any of you. It might still be a while 'till we have our first contest (because I'd like to offer some decent prizes as to promote DWJ fanart from outsiders too).

Last, but not least, I'd love to know if any of you has blogs or websites dedicated to Diana either it's a fanfiction dot net account or a tumblr blog...We'd love to promote it here.

For today, I'll be leaving you with this:… - A Chrestomanci Tumblr.
Let me know of other sites.

And, for now, this is it.

P.S.: PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU SUBMIT YOUR ART TO THE RIGHT FOLDER! We get a lot of submissions to the "FEATURED" folder and that's just not fair. I usually fix it right away but it's better if you just check if there's a right folder for the art you're submitting!

Why is it that it seems rare to draw howl and Christopher chant with curly hair? that is the way they are described in the books
Thatu Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Well, I believe it happens for moostly two reasons (though I don't recall Howl's curly hair). For Howl, people happen to draw him with straight hair because that's how he's portrayed in the Miyazaki movie, so I guess people went for it. As for Christopher, though he's described to have naturally curly hair as a child, once grown, his vanity made him straighten up his hair every morning by magic. Diana said so in an interview. A good example that Christopher's hair is still curly but that he straightens it every morning is when he saves Cat in Charmed Life by throwing him in the bathtub. Because he gets wet, his hair starts to curl again.
Point being, though I can't be sure on Howl, adult Christopher is to be portrayed with straight hair. :)

Well Howl's hair was described as having curly hair in House of Many Ways, but his hair is not described very often.
But I didn't know that about Christopher. So thank you for that.

I thought he only had golden curly hair when he was posing as Twinkle, reliving his childhood? XD

I think he's amazing regardless of his current hair situation. lol
Thatu Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I didn't get around to House of Many Ways yet but I'll make sure to look for the curly hair thing then x)!

Is it OK to submit a collage (drawn by someone else, partially at my request) with stuff from a bunch of different fandoms, only one of which is DWJ?
Thatu Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
It's ok - submit to the feature folder and then I'll find its real place. :)
