.:MMD:. Yomigami [Okami] by Miku-Nyan02 .:MMD:. Yomigami [Okami] by Miku-Nyan02
Yomigami (「蘇神」) is the Celestial Brush god of Rejuvenation. Taking the form of a dragon over a parchment, he is encountered by completing a constellation in the River of the Heavens. He is the Dragon in the East Asia zodiac. He carries four yellow orbs in his claws, though their purpose is unknown.
Rejuvenation is used to fill in missing or broken parts of things. Ink used for Rejuvenation appears lighter than usual, like smoke. If the Celestial Brush is moved over an area where Rejuvenation can be used, greyish Holy smoke will appear. As long as the broken part is filled in, the object will restore itself.

"Yomi" refers to the underworld (a neutral realm, unlike "heaven" or "hell" in Western beliefs).  However, "yomigaeru" (「蘇る」), which is also the kanji used to write Yomigami's name, means "to be resurrected"

Dragons throughout Eastern Asia, and without exception in Japan, are revered as great and honoured beasts of divinity. One characteristic they depict is carrying an orb-shaped jewel, or pearl, in one or more of their claws; while also representing prosperity, luck, and wealth, the orbs are said to be blessed with the abilities of omnipotence and creation at will, and powers over the phenomena of weather and the seas.

UUUUURRRRRRGGGGGGHHHH. He is finally pretty much done.
I had a lot of trouble with his sleeves. This was my first time dealing with "magic" bones. (basically, a complicated IK rig) Took me near enough three days to stop his sleeves going all noodly when his arms are moved. I spent too many nights staying up late trying to figure that out....

I initially intended him to wear a traditional formal coat called a happi, with the patterning you can see on the front of his sleeves. With the lack of happi out there, I had to improvise a plan B. It took longer than I wanted to draw out the design on the textures and then try to blend it with the shading.

The armour around his waist is there to represent dragon scales.... And to give him more of a warrior look. I wanted him to look tough, yet elegant. I'm not overly keen on his default forever angry brow. I might adjust the default position of his eyebrows later, but here he I for now. Pretty happy with him as is right now.

Looks awesome! Thanks for using my base/face! :D
(If you only don't like the default stern/angry position, you could save each expression (happy, sad, etc) as its own model, change the default expression into something else with sliders or manually moving vertices, and then repair the brow morphs using the saved expressions! There are tutorials that explain this, or I can explain it too.)

Thank you and you're welcome. :)
(I actually learned that a few weeks ago, its a pretty good method for editing default expressions. I discovered it purely by accident, haha.)

Nice one! You can just instantly tell he's a dragon just from a glance.

Only 11 more to go! :D Or are you not doing the complete set? That's fine if you're not, just curious.

Thanks! That's what I aimed for~

I plan on making the whole set. I've already made Amaterasu herself and Tachigami, so my ultimate goal is to have the whole set of brush gods made.

I like how this turned out. Even by looking at this one, I can tell that it's a dragon.
