Morning Sun by evelmiina Morning Sun by evelmiina
After playing Okami for days I can't help but feel inspired.
So pardon the nippon overdose.

I wanted to paint a rooster because I particularly liked the rooster zodiac in the game, although my version hopefully doesn't look like the same :'3 if really like rooster at all, who needs references anyway...

I'm quite satisfied, considering I was about to give up in the beginning because every step felt like a huge mistake :D stupid inks. In the end, it turned out all good~

~muhvu scanned it for me and this needed to be scanned in 3-4 parts, so there's still some blurry spots but it can't be helped.

watercolor, gouache, ink, original size A3

It's no particular character from any mythology, but here I think she is some Sun goddess of a sort, summoning the rising Sun. And thanks!

OooooOOOooh... so pretty and flowy and feathery... I like how you draw the flowy parts so similar to the feathers on the bird, it's really nice continuity.

Very cool, but does that blur in the center of artwork was intended?

The scan wasn't very good, so original is clean on that part. I should probably photograph it, or use larger scanner, as this is slightly larger than A3 and therefore doesn't fit very well on any scanner of mine. I tried scanning it as multiple parts, but it kept getting blurry argh...

Try to scan A3 in few (3-4) not too distant parts, then take them on a different layers in PS and cut the blurry edges of every one of them, finally stick them back togeather into one piece. You must be very careful to scan every piece equally stright, or you'll be havin' some problems later. The best way is to buy A3 scanner. ;p

A3 scanner would be the finest buy, I'm rather annoyed that they tend to sell scanners only with printer in here. I'm only interested in buying a decent scanner rather than so-so scanner & printer :'3
But thanks, I should try that, my last computer was also really slow when processing with photoshop and scanner, this one should work better.

I like this very much. The colours are in good balance and the kimono the girl is wearing is so cute! I also like her hair, the way it goes back looking like it´s been swimming in terva. Also the tail of the rooster looks great.

Great colours, it looks like candy!! *licks the screen*

Took me a while to figure out where the bird's head is..! Then again it might indeed be because of the blur caused by the scanning.. I think a clearer view of the bird's head would've helped to add more to the weightpoint and the composition. I love the round shapes forming it eitherway, you could've played even more with the weight/height of the wings though to add more to the conquering circles in the top right.

..baww didn't mean to come off as so negative, this is a gorgeous piece. Her head-dress is my favourite.

no nyt pääsit pelaa Okamia :3 eikö olekkin ihana peli? <3 mä jäin kans pahasti koukkuun, tosin eläimien piirtäminen ei oo mun vahvuus, niin en ole onnistunut fanarttia väsäämään :<

upeaa työtä, kuten aina : D sä oot hyvä käyttää vesivärejä. inspiroiva kuva x3

Oikeen hyvin uppoo, pelimekaniikka on jotenkin...zeldamainen :--D tyyli tosin on aivan uniikki ja tenhoava, ihastuin siihen jo kauan ennenkuin pelasin pelii kunnolla.

Alotin Okamin kyl joskus viime vuoden puolella mut Wii kapula ja sensorilätty telkkarin päällä ei tuntunu millään_toimivan, otti päähän jäädä jumiin jossain 'vedä suora viiva'-kohdissa kun ei vaan tuntunut ottavan ja peli oli melko alkuvaiheessa niin oli helppo jättää sikseen.
Nyt tosin kun on päässy vauhtiin ni en varmaan muuta tekiskään kuin pelais sitä ellei ois pakko tehdä ennakkotehtäviäki haha x3;;

muistuttaa TP:stä, juu |3 tosiaan, grafiikasta pisteet tekijöille! : D ja kaikkihan toivoisivat jatko-osaa sillekkin, mutta tällä hetkellä näyttää siltä että varsin ainutlaatuinen tuollainen yhden pelin tarina :3

aa ymmärrettävä ongelma, itse omistan kyllä PS2-version, mutta oon pelannu sitä Wiilläkin, eikä ees suoran viivan piirtäminen onnistunu D8< ja sit kun kaveri vieressä (kokenut Wii-pelaaja) ottaa ohjat ja homma luistaa, niin itseäni rupeaa heti ihan nolottaa, kun pleikka-versiolla osaan ihan leikiten -_-;
