Well, I've decided to try and go for the Okami contest. I love the art style of the game, so I decided to see what I can do with using a variant of the style. Now, I admit that it is not exactly like the style of the game, it has my own twist to it. However, I did attempt to capture the feel.

Please note, this image is only inspired by the game and its themes. I also used a color selection that is similar to what can be found in the game. This image is no attempt to capture a character in the game.

I started this as soon as I found out about the Okami contest. To be honest, this image partially drew itself, for I had little idea of what I was going to create when I started. I just put my pencil to my sketchbook and allowed the image to develop as I drew. Within a few short hours, I don't think more than three, I completely finished the sketch.

From there, I scanned it in and spent several hours on photoshop to create this. While painting, I insured that my original pencil marks were maintained, without utilizing the pen tool. The original sketch was cleaned up slightly, and edited in a few ways. However, it is quite visible despite all the work to paint this.

I am quite content in my finished product.

Thank you for viewing.
