Baron's Return - Sketches by vegechan Baron's Return - Sketches by vegechan
La la la la BARON FOR THE WIN!

..because I still haven't gotten Baron out of my head yet and I damn I really like drawing him in this particular style... <3 Love 

I'm a total shipper for Baron Humbert von Gikkingen and Haru Yoshioka from Studio Ghibli's  "The Cat Returns" and I decided I needed to draw more fanart of them because there's just not enough of it in the world!

So here this latest piece is, where I imagine many years have passed and Haru is now a grown woman and yearns for her past adventure with Baron, Toto, and Muta, but most of all, she still holds hope that her heart will eventually lead her back to Baron and wonders if he has forgotten her. Somehow or other, Baron (who has definitely NOT forgotten Haru) is able to make himself human sized and he goes into the human world in a desperate search of her, hoping that he's not too late and that she still remains single. As you can see, they are eventually reunited because love is awesome! Hee...they're blushing! :P (Lick) I know, terrible synopsis...maybe I'll write a fanfiction some day.. Heh.

As opposed to my previous attempt at drawing Baron, I've anthropomorphized him a bit more by giving him eyebrows, which allow him to be a bit more expressive.

I maintain that his wife, Louise, is still out there somewhere and therefore struggle to ship. But these are lovely sketches, you should do a comic.

Baron (and his matching companion statue) also appears in Whispers Of The Heart, so you might want to check that film out (it's also by Ghibli).

There are very few Ghibli films I haven't seen; mostly the older, hard-to-find ones. My favorites are Ponyo, Howl's Moving Castle, Spirited Away, and Kiki's Delivery Service.^^
