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!

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!
