Okami - We Who Cannot See by Ill-wovenElm Okami - We Who Cannot See by Ill-wovenElm
Amaterasu in white wolf form, as the world sees her.

Someone in one of my art classes this term was using ink on glossy paper to create a very unusual and interesting effect. This is, vaguely, an attempt to recreate that in digital format, combined with the Okami style.

Really, I'm just trying to force myself to be more loose. Only half worked in that regard, but I did manage to make something pretty in only a couple of hours, which is good enough for me. :3

-Kim

Edit: Moving this to the Okami Contest just for the hell of it. I might fix it up a bit (finally), but not until after I finish the new submission I'm working on for it...

Larger size available on request, I suppose...

You should do more of Okami like this! You're really good at drawing her without her disk :)

This is amazing, I think you've captured the Okami style perfectly here <3
This has inspired me to do some 'nonbeliever' Ammy fanart.

Well, what I did was paint a big black line, then erase smaller lines from that, then and smaller black over that, until it looked like it had been made using a brush. It's mostly just going over the line multiple times until it looks like you want it to.

I hope that helps at least some. ^^;

Wow. D: That is a -beautiful piece of art.- I love the color gradient from the sun to the rest of the piece, the richness of the colors and the starkness of the contrast of that beautiful white wolf against the crimson background. Especially with Ammy, the color is so crisp and bright; she reminds me of snow. <3

What I didn't notice on my first look was that the tree she's leaning against is the same ink she's been trailing, a wonderful little detail in my opinion. XD The difference in the texture is startling, contrasting sharply enough that they don't seem to be connected at first.

The brushstrokes, the colors, the detail...this is really a gorgeous piece. Lovely! <3
