My entry for the Okami contest >>;... I hope it's not too big =__=; The contest required it to be huge and I've never uploaded something this big >>; Taking awhile to upload...
It didn't turn out as nicely as I liked, mainly with the color. Okami kinda has 2 styles: Sumi painting and Japanese Woodcut. I was aiming for the traditional Sumi brush paintings with the basic lines and colors, but I also had a lot of detailed things like in a woodcut I didn't want to generalize too much, so... i tried to balance it
And over all, I like the out come of the lines. I'm not so sure about the colors though >>;... hm.. but the fire turned out nice
I also used the parchment bg they provided us with (I hope I used it the right way >>;...) but I wish I could do more with the bg, I just don't know what >>; lol. I guess I didn't give myself enough time again. I've been working on this design for ages and finally got around to using it. Before this contest, I had planned to make Okami wallpapers of each god in a human form
But I'd like to work alittle more on this one before it's wallpaper debut x3
Ammy as a human is still the mother of all and would do anything to protect her children, so I made her strong, holding up the sun disk, and mature. Her kimono is traditional and formal, but loose around her legs so she can run (and you do a lot of it in the game x3 ) and move freely, as any mother can tell you you'll be needing it to look after your kids. She's still beautiful but ready to fight for what she loves.
Anyway, I love Okami and hope I can get it for the Wii!
It's the perfect console for it x3 I hope I win x3 lol Since it's really expensive right now and I'm a poor college student.
