Orochi vs Okami by FleetingEmber Orochi vs Okami by FleetingEmber
Orochi vs Amaterasu: The Final Showdown

(With Oki of course :) )

The other 7 heads aren't in this piece, they're out of frame preoccupied fighting Nagi/Susano :)

Finally revisited this piece and finished it. I really had no idea was I was doing with value before, so I instantly grey scaled what I had and painted from there, which really helped. So glad I started reading Loomis’ books. They’re such a help. Need to keep pushing and learning more!


See my process on my Tumblr!

Ahh, the finished version looks absolutely fabulous!~ 
All the textures look amazing, and I love the why Orochi's mouth has teeth packed in everywhere, not to mention the realistic slobber all over them xD It's fantastic~

This is awesome, but the name of the wolf/sun god is Amaterasu, not Okami...?

I always thought that Ami was called Okami Amaterasu for some reason. Not sure where I got that idea from!

I believe when Ami goes back in time and fights Orochi 100 years ago, Oki tries to attack Orochi to ;)

Haha thank you :) Is there anything you feel I could improve on? I know it's a bit sketchy in place and could do with refining a little bit, but is there anything else you notice that might have looked better if I had done it in a different way?

Besides being slightly sketchy, I'm not so keen on the wolf in the background carrying a sword in its mouth. Just seems a little out of place to me. Also, the wolves could have stronger shadows on the ground like the dragon. The shading on the dragon head closest to the front of the picture is pretty good - makes it look pissed off. :)

Very beautiful. :)  The perspective is very well played out and the fact you utilized brush strokes so vividly definitely adds a lot to the visual aesthetic of this composition.  I love that you added a little action in the background as well. :D

Keep it up!

Thank you! I really was pushing with perspective when I originally drew the piece, although my knowledge was lacking. Since then I've been studying loads so there are a few perspective issues with it, like the angle of Orochi's jaw but I decided to leave it. I wanted to really focus on value with this piece, and making sure contrast was high on parts close to the viewer and low on those further away. It's really good putting these techniques into practice and being aware of it. ^^

It's a lot better at times to use color to your advantage when working with creating perspective and depth, rather than outright using a blur filter which can be quite dizzying and distracting on the viewer's eyes. :) I'm glad you went with that approach instead.

Thank you!! That's what I was going for with the original sketch, although I've been looking at it so long now it looks static to me =P
