Amaterasu mother of us all by JocelynAda Amaterasu mother of us all by JocelynAda
Holycrapcuttingitclose. I hope I got it in on time.

Okami entry, sorry for freakin hugeness, but it's what DA required. Fanart of Okami, probably the greatest game ever made. Amaterasu vs. Orochi. He's a Total BAMF. Oh Painter, I love your sum-i brush oh-so much.

All assets in this piece were hand painted by ME. The texture was scanned in, nothing was borrowed or stolen.

Okami © Clover Studios/Capcom

EDIT// AHH fixed the size to be more monitor friendly. Just download for fullsize <3

You don't know the irony I've been in with this game. I watched Chugga's LP of it,and ages later,got the sequel. Okamiden. Even MORE ages later,I find the original here for rent or so at my local library,and I COULDN'T GET IT. You wanna know why? The previous winter break before,a robber broke into my house through my window while me and my mom were at the bookstore,and stole my Wii,17 games,both Wii and Gamecube,some of the accessories,and my sister's TV. So I couldn't get the copy of Okami BECAUSE OF A BLOODY THIEF.

Yeah,it's really that bad.

cool composition.

its funny though, they did used stole art.. at least what I heard lol
kitty-ko Featured By Owner May 2, 2008
(lol, from the cosfu thread)

Um, the lineart looks more like blurred/damaged felt-tip pen/photoshop brushes than sumi-e type strokes. And, I'm not sure what program you used for this, but the colouring looks more like it's blurred than watercolour.

Then again, sumi-e and watercolours are hard to simulate on a computer. For a more realistic blur between colours, I'd try out openCanvas. :3

Otherwise, I really like the composition, and your textures are really nice. =w=

the coloring is "tinting", but the brushstrokes are sumi-e. I can't exactly color with sumi-e yet hehe.

I used painter.

Thanks for the input though, I'll try and make the strokes bigger.

Its funny because in the myth, it was actually Susanoo (Her brother) that killed Orochi XD.

Wonderful picture btw, hope you win 8D
JocelynAda Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2008  Professional Digital Artist
No actually it was Shiranui and the "hero" Nagi, Susano's ancestor :P
Then 100 years later Susano and Amaterasu team up again to fight Orochi again.

*Le gasp* I need to re-read my myths, I'm getting forgetful =P

Once again, best of luck to you Chico!
