I love Nausicaa. It’s my favorite manga of all time.
I learned some things about Miyazaki’s art while studying the hell out of Nausicaa in order to make my costume.
Lesson #1 - Miyazaki does not like to draw feet. Nausicaa’s boots are crazy. They have no soles. They change shape constantly. Their most common form is lumpy potato.
Lesson #2 - Nausicaa’s hair is the most fictional thing in this whole book. I took several reference photos to my hair stylist and she was baffled. She informed me that Nausicaa has at least 3 different haircuts, depending on which way the wind is blowing.
Lesson #3 - That symbol on Nausicaa’s chest? I went through about 10 drafts of it trying to normalize a single design from a group of about 5 that I selected out of the dozens of reference photos I took directly of the manga. I’m pretty sure that thing is alive, cause it changes shape all the time.

Baseel was hoping to pick up some stout from the bar for her elders at the valley of spirits, when an orc came in calling trolls “tusk-apes” and goblins “lesser beings”, and so Baseel exited the bar and cried from fear and frustration at being too afraid to finish her task
Croix found her and was a good friend, escorting her back to troll territory
the reason male comic book fans work themselves into a frenzied rage over “fake geek girls" is because they think they can’t get a girlfriend because of their love for comic books (a.k.a nerdiness). if they accept that geek girls genuinely love…
