I have really been enjoying doing Okami style arts. They are quick and easy, a nice warm up exercise before I really get into something.
Done freehand with a brushpen, so things look a little wonky.
The first completed drawing of a friend’s character drawn to look like the gods in the game, with his own weapon, a reflector with the fursona’s usual weapon of chouce, baseball bats, attched. The guy also likes dragons, so I did a goofy one on the reflector disk too. AND I used Puffin the cat for a live model. The cats in this house get turned into so much art!
And a gift for Thornwolf. Her australian german shepherd mix character with a glaive weapon, rust and gears for her love of steampunk industrial things, and the iron cross that she wears around her neck, and green tassels because she decorates her place with green everything. I couldn’t find my usual brushpen for this one, so the inking isn’t as nice as I’d like.
More to come! Thanks for looking.February 5, 2007 at 11:48 pm #536044
Sweet. I actually like the cat one the best, and I don’t like cats that much.February 6, 2007 at 12:37 am #536045
You’ve captured the flowing, sumi-e quality of Okami excellently in your work, and adapted it flawlessly to others’ creations. Very well done.February 6, 2007 at 4:32 am #536046RustiParticipant
I love the art in Okami, just haven’t gotten around to doing any fanart myself.
These are gorgeous, even if they are simple.February 6, 2007 at 7:51 pm #536047
I like teh cat the best, too. I think it’s because he’s infused with Puffin Power.February 6, 2007 at 9:42 pm #536048MariaParticipant
Very pretty. I like Thornwolf-s best.February 7, 2007 at 5:44 pm #536049NinaParticipant
I love the artwork I just have to ask what’s Okami? Is it the style of artwork because I love it. I’ve done a few sumi-e style painting and it has kind of the same look.February 7, 2007 at 10:29 pm #536050enchantments wrote:

It’s a Playstation 2 game with a sumi-e feel–the environments, the characters, all are done in that style and fluidly animated. It’s beautifully mesmerizing and very much ‘traditional’ Japan in its quirks and cultural references.February 8, 2007 at 3:37 am #536051NinaParticipant
thanks I’ll have to look for that game. I have a PS2 but I never play it any moreFebruary 8, 2007 at 4:13 am #536052
Yes, you should drag it out again just to play! ^_^ And luckily, it’s a relatively inexpensive buy (might even be a Greatest Hit already).
Sadly, Clover Studio (the game’s maker) is already dissolved and no longer producing games. The members have all gone on to other game projects though.February 8, 2007 at 9:36 pm #536053
If you do find it, expect to pay around $40 new for it or I think around $35 used. My friend bought it for me.February 9, 2007 at 5:42 pm #536054
Just some incomplete sketches.
I Haven’t seen many drawings of the enemies. The design and story behind each one is amazing. Many are really creepy! This is a wierd multi eyed samurai tengu with fans for wings.February 9, 2007 at 8:58 pm #536055
And the last one for a while, one for my friend Balaa (see her awesome art at http://balaa.deviantart.com/).February 10, 2007 at 8:52 pm #536056
I like the last pic the best. Your friends pics are really good also. I like the clover patch.
