100 Ghibli Paintings


Here is a wonderful collection of 100 Studio Ghibli images, collecting some of the best background paintings, and animation stills from their films:


If you like what you see, I highly recommend any of the Studio Ghibli 'Art of' books. They are all fantastic, and they release these books consistently for each film, which makes for a wonderful collection:



I would also highly recommend the book, 'Studio Ghibli Layout Designs', which collects a TON of layouts from a multitude of films. This book is a little harder to find, but well worth the time and expense. It's a lot of book.

  1. Some of my favorite art books in my home library are from Studio Ghibli! :)
    I wasn't familiar with the layout book you mentioned, so I will have to try and check that one out...
    Did pick up Hayao Miyazaki's "Nausicaä Of The Valley Of The Wind" Box Set (Viz) this past summer based on his manga series. Beautiful work.

  2. Those are just gorgeous. I wonder what type of paint they're using to execute them. My first thought is gouache for its traditional anti-glare properties. Guess I'll have to put a couple of those books on my Amazon radar.
