Amaterasu by kittifox Amaterasu by kittifox

So DeviantArt is having a contest for Okami fanart, if you haven't heard. I love this game, and I've never won anything before, but it didn't hurt to try it, aye? In fact this was rather fun, I've been working on it off and on for the past week or two when I took breaks from final exams and projects.

I did my best to make it look like a painting, using fairly rough-looking brushes in photoshop and re-drawing lines over and over to get the right look for the pressure of the brush. It's a fairly simple illustration but I think the pose is pleasantly 'active' and Ammy looks as close to her in-game self as I could manage.

Probably the best fanart I've done in ages, so if I don't win, at least I have a neat new desktop background!

And yes, in the lower left, that's a very rough approximation of my first name in katakana. I apologize in advance to anyone who can read and write katakana fluently - my handwriting is probably atrocious. I merely thought it would be a neat visual touch for a piece based on a game that emulates Japanese painting and calligraphy is all. I tried my best, but if it's inaccurate, well, then there's my signature in English right next to it. ;)

After finals, I swear I'm going to be sitting and playing this game to death, because doing this made me miss it.
