White Sun Rising by blazheirio889 White Sun Rising by blazheirio889
And I am donnneeee~ Well, I'd like to change the background... But I had a brainfart when it came to what exactly I should draw in the background. So I scribbled that up. If anyone has any suggestions, they're very, very welcome. Seriously. I want the background to actually have some relevance to the foreground D:

I'm actually not too satisfied with this... How the hell do you draw those white streamer thingies coming from Shiranui's back properly D: I'll probably change it sooner or later. Though I do like how the Divine Reflector came out.

Anyway, I'm pretty sure I have other stuff to ramble about, but... Anyway, I'd like critique, and chances are I'll change whatever errors you guys can spot, and make improvements ;D Especially the background, heh.

Lineart: 3-pixel brush
Colouring: Photoshop CS4
Paper: Digital paper lulz
Time Taken: Estimated... 4 to 5 hours? Not that long.

Okami (c) Clover Studios

Edit: Derp, almost insta-edit lulz. Just as I uploaded this I noticed some jerky fur stuff, so I fixed it and yeah. Yay~

Edit again: Why didn't anyone tell me I forgot to un-transparentize Shiranui's hind leg OTL

Christ, this is probably one of my favourites of your pics. You have magical colouring skills, seriously.
(And I'm not sure whether I've already commented on this...?)
Anyway, the reflector looks super awesome as well as the fur.

I've always liked Shiranui, haha. And the theme "The Sun Rises" from the game is great too XD

... yay thanks 8D; Not so much with digital I think, but eh!

I know :3 The entire soundtrack is great actually.

=D No problem.

I like the Dragon Palace theme and "Inside the Water Dragon" along with a lot of the Kamui music, actually. The Ezo Fuji shrine is pretty creepy with that music.
I'm actually trying to learn some of the soundtrack on the piano; I think you might know there are official piano arrangements and sheet music for them out there...?

And have you actually played the game recently? XD

Shiranui is female because she's Amaterasu from 100 years ago
Reply
:iconblazheirio889:
blazheirio889 Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2009
Yeah, I thought so ;] Though Shiranui seems a bit more of a masculine name to me... Ah, well.

:iconhawkfire45:
Hawkfire45 Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
And in my opinion, Shiranui seems more like a girls name and I think it means " Unkown Fire" or something. I don't know, I keep forgetting ^^;

:iconblazheirio889:
blazheirio889 Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2009
Ah, really? I don't know why, but I've always thought of the word 'silent' when I heard Shiranui. I have no idea what it actually means, though ^^;

Is Shiranui a guy or a girl, though? o.o I've always wondered, since Amaterasu is female, and she's the incarnation of Shiranui... But Shiranui seems more masculine than anything. (haha ignore me I ramble)

I don't know, I think Shiranui is a Male and Amaterasu is a female... (amaterasu is a female, sure)

Shiranui is so much cooler than Ammy. ><
Awesome job with the reflector, its the best part definitely. The lighting and shading is fantastic as well.
For the BG, perhaps a simple sunrise? Even the gradient tool would work. It would fit the title.

Of course! All those swirly markings and that kick-ass reflector... 8D Not that I mean Amaterasu isn't awesome, 'course.

Thank you =] And I was thinking of a sunrise, but then according to that lighting Shiranui would be sillouetted more and then I'd have to redo the shading :/ See, this is why I need to plan pictures in advance.

Thanks for the comment and input anyway =]
