Ariduka55, also known as Monokubo in social media circles, is a 24-year-old Japanese artist. Finding her inspiration in natural landscapes and the illustrations of a variety of other artists, she got the idea to include giant animals living beside their human counterparts from Studio Ghibli.

Studio Ghibli has produced such anime masterpieces as “Princess Mononoke,” “Totoro,” and “Howl’s Moving Castle,” among many others. The studio is especially known for featuring large-sized animals in its films, many of which have become a favorite of anime lovers worldwide.

With this inspiration in mind, Arikuda55 has created a world where her giant-sized animals live right alongside their human companions. The ethereal and peaceful atmosphere of her compositions makes them a favorite among her fans.

Here is a selection of Arikuda55’s artwork featuring giant animals in a magical, fantasy world.
