Okay, the title is something of a joke, but I finally managed to get her head onto her body. I decided to keep the realistic inspired textures on her tail, thanks to the input on my previous post. (thanks everyone who contributed) Anyway, this is a representation of Nuregami, one of the brush gods from Okami. Nuregami represents the snake in the east Asian zodiac and she grants Amaterasu the brush technique "watersprout".
In Nuregami's design, she's submerged in a flask of water, which I do plan on making. Once I'm satisfied with Nuregami's textures, physics and overall rigging when she's posed, I will make a spherical flask like the one in her design. I plan on making a large one that can fit her inside and a small one that could fit in her palm.
Hope everyone likes her progress so far. Full part credits will come upon model completion.
