Okami by yuumei Okami by yuumei

This is a drawing for :iconjitterdoodles: who wanted Okami as her prize for winning the Knite Caption contest hosted by :iconknite-fliers: :D I hope you like it and congrats!

Speaking of Knite contests, :iconknite-fliers: is hosting a new contest! :D It's actually less of a contest and more of a fun for all activity where you can post prompts like "Knite beach party" or "Young Kai meets young Sen" in the comments, and someone else might draw your prompt or you can choose to draw someone else's prompt! :D I will draw a few of the chosen prompts myself~ You can read more about the contest details here…

Drawn in Paint tool SAI, texture added in Photoshop.

I'll try to comment here again in the hope that you'll see it amongst all the other comments.
I love this illustration of Okami so much, I've tattooed it onto my entire back. I was hoping you would want to see it!
Here's the link to a photo of the tattoo: Okami tattoo

Keep up the good work!

I never played Okami, but your illustration is great. It shows that you really understand and were able to perfectly replicate the ancient Japanese artwork that inspired the game. It definitely gives an excellent blend between ancient and modern art

You draw goats so well.. The way you draw their fur makes it seem so soft and fluffy. I guess they're your favourite animal?

Also, I've kind of been copying and pasting this around but there is this amazing artist I found a few months ago who I can't seem to find again. I believe she's female, she does digital art and she often paints fairies and female demons. her paintings often have a dark theme, her style is incredibly sophisticated and she is considerably famous on this site - but not like sakimichan-level fame. I also remember that she does quite a lot of speedpaints and concept art. if you happen to have found someone who meets that admittedly vague criteria, I would love to know.

Goats? what am i saying.. I mean wolves lol. I should probably just go to sleep mow..

You sold me a print of this at the Cherry Blossom Festival in SF today. I've had this image in my favorites for so long; I never thought I'd get to see it in person! Thanks for your amazing art!
mackalexda Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Really amazing art of a beautiful game. I absolutely love it. <3

However, I was just letting you know that someone seems to be selling this on at the moment. I was actually juuuust about to buy it on a t shirt when I noticed your watermark on the image. I wouldn't want to buy it if it's someone else trying to make money from your work.…

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room
