:iconsanguisgelidus: Watch me for more! :D :la: :iconsanguisgelidus:

This is a commissioned piece of Amaterasu from Okami. I never played this game, but I always loved this character!! :D So I was really happy, when :iconmacalaniaa: asked me to draw her! ^^ I reaaally hope you like this, I spent countless hours on it! But it was real fun!! :D


I am still open for commissions!! Here is the info: [link]


Favs, comments and critiques are highly appreciated!! :heart:

wow. i like the- everything, but ill start with the shading. the shading looks very realistic, and you see the difference between each texture you shaded. the coloring looks calm and soft, i mean, its fun looking at it. the colors themselves are calm and soft ^^
the background is very detailed, so if the wolf XD but in the background you payed attention even to the smallest details, such as the 3 birds next to the moon X3
plus the wols is realy cute XD

in total i really liked it! ^^ *fave*

Ahhhhh, brother!! This is so awesome, I cant describe it!! I love the wolf so much, he looks a bit cute and also magical! The fire on his back looks so real! And I abselutely loove the background.. :heart: The atmosphere is so magical and not from this world! The water also look really really realistic and nice! The cherry blossoms or petals that fly in the air give the picture much dynamic and make it really interesting! I also love the sun and the sky with the clouds and the birds! The colors are really balanced and well choosen, I love it so much I cant describe it!! :heart:

OH MY DOG! This is clearly one of the most beautiful fan Art of Okami I've ever seen! It's just a crazy thing! You have talent.

All these details, these harmonious colors.
It's almost as beautiful as the game itself!
