"One of my favourites, and I worked very hard on it. I never liked drawing standard heroine pictures of Nausicaa looking cheerful. I couldn’t draw her disconnected from the story. Nausicaa looking out of the picture and smiling just seemed wrong to me. When she’s alone, I always imagined her looking very unapproachable. Not because she was intimidating, but because of a quiet isolation, like she wasn’t part of her surroundings at all."
