okami: Hold Back the Night by Ill-wovenElm okami: Hold Back the Night by Ill-wovenElm
The sun shines in the land of cherry blossoms.





For the Okami contest.

I've always loved sumi-e landscapes, so I decided to put my emphasis on that, rather than the character art. Based, as such, primarily on various styles of traditional sumi-e.

Edit: tweaked the colors; added frame; redid Sakuya.

wow I love sumi-e. Especially the importance of negative space, which you did so beautifully. The picture is seimple and elegance with beautiful pale colors. I would have this as a scroll hanging on my wall.

Well I think it's awesome. :D I absolutely love the tree. It looks so soft and fluffy and pretty!

But... wasn't the resolution supposed to be 2550 x 3300 or something?

This is really beautiful. I'm just beginning sumi-e and ink wash studies, and really liked your interpretation of it. I think the placement of the tree in the background was great and it reminded me a little bit of the lighting of the beacons from the Lord of the Rings movies.

I also just finished a study of trees and think your values and tree forms are really excellently done, even on the whimsical tree skeleton.

Very nice! ^_^
