The Okami Brush Gods by FleetingEmber The Okami Brush Gods by FleetingEmber

The Okami Brush Gods.

I started this piece well over a year ago. I sketched it out and put down the base colours, but then got completely stumped on how to handle the painting! I've never done a piece with this many characters before and I really was intimidated by the complexity.

Fast forward to now and I happened to come across the piece buried at the bottom of my art folder and rose to the challenge of finishing it.

I'm really happy with the lighting, although I didn't use references so there's definitely gonna be some issues in places!!

Amazing! Okami is one of the best games I"ve ever played, and this is one of it's best fanarts. Pat yourself on the back = ).

Really nice. I like how, although all the characters are so diverse, they match each other.

there is a chinese story about how there was suppose to be 13 animals of the zodiac but the rat played a trick on the cat so the cat missed his chance and isn't included

Well done! This is a most certain visually impressive composition taking flight. :) There's beauty to be found throughout the canvas from corner to corner, thanks to your careful eye and attention to detail. Love the designs unfold and show of such interesting distinction per individual subject despite what approach to aesthetics they might have in common. Outstanding indeed, and plenty worth the effort. :)

Keep it up!

You should definitely do it! It would look awesome in your style!!!

I found the idea of doing so many characters in one piece and having multiple light sources extremely mind-boggling, but I'm really glad I dug this piece and gave it my best shot!!
