Okami VS orochi by weshoyot Okami VS orochi by weshoyot
here's my entry for the contest. It's mostly hand-drawn, with a few digital tweaks. Done in Pentel Zebra mechanical pencil, prisma markers and colored pencils, uniball pen on strathmore bristol board. Tweaked the colors and texture in PS2

My goal in the piece was to try and use fine whispy lines to mimic the graceful qualities of sumi and then tone it so it would appear like an old parchment or scroll. I added my OCD nature of detail and voila! I think it works...enjoy!

judges: a larger version is available on request in the required size.

Wow, I just realized, that this is the picture that Lucahjin(famous youtube let's player) has tattooed on her arm.

I absolutely love this pic, except for ammy's face. I don't know why, but her face remindes me more of the face or a rat, than a wolf.

I think you accomplished your goal. I like how you used the aura of Okami to bring Orochi into the piece. Nicely done!

I love how I can look at this, and still find new things to look at each time!

Also, your style of drawing makes the scene appear more... wild, and more realistic in its own right. I like it; its a different take on the Okami theme than what I usually see online. Its like something you would see on a tapestry in a temple somewhere, depicting a legendary encounter. It makes the world of Okami seem more real! Great work weshoyot!

Dude, that's one awesome piece of art there !

Say, can I use it for a school project of mine ? I would credit you for the image in the project.

In short, I need to make a poster of a game or movie released after 2004, but in the style of the Golden Age (1976-1989). I have plans to make a poster about a 8-bit NES version of Okami, and your image would make a nice addition to it. If you want, I can send you the final image for you to approve it. [I could also add links to your accounts, like DeviantArt, in the credits.]

Thank you for your time, and keep up the good work.

Cheers,

WebJiCi

P.S. OKAMI ROCKS ! ESPECIALLY IN MARVEL VS CAPCOM 3 ! AMMY FTW !

This is such a beautiful picture. I don't understand why artists use that stupid huge water mark in the middle of the picture? Ruins the tranquility and power of it.

THIS IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. The details are particularily amazing, they make this so intricate and my eyes a virtually exploding ha~ I love the expressions, from ammy's to the individuality you gave each of lord orochi's heads... the energy just radiates from them, it feels like I'm watching them battle before me!
great work, I can see your skill and dedication :)

...If this is real, then I can say that without doubt you do honor to the genre of art that is Sumi-E, so many talented artists are this sight that I hear myself saything that alot ;)
Your attention to detail is divine, your actions are dynamic and alive, your choice of scene angle presents the heart of an epic waiting to be sung by Calliope herself.
Excellent work, keep it up.

I forgot what we were talking about...ha, this is still fun to talk to you about.
So, what kind of work are you focused on doing now? Paint, pencil? Ink brush? Tell it's ink brush! :D
