No Country for Weak Men by skipaway No Country for Weak Men by skipaway
EDIT 4/7/10 Replaced with the fixed version used as a print at AB2010 :D

(dude, what's up with the categories all of a sudden?)

An overly belated gift to the wonderful Merimask for her birthday! We were over the moon about Okami earlier this summer and we both have a penchant for pretty men, and so Waka was shamelessly pimped out to us hopeless fangirls. I do hope she likes it :3 Honestly, I'm still obsessed with the game, drawing it at least, so this should be no real shock...

His last fight with Yami, determined to continue fighting to redeem himself right ot the end. At least that's what it was going for.

Thank you so much!
And I know, I really need to re-do the linework or fix up the shading or *something* to fix that....but that's what summer is for! *plots artwork correction time*

Waka! You look oh so fab here. :love: I love the red lining on his eye area. It kinda gives the game feel to it! :+fav:

So glad you like it! It was fun trying to pull the details from his design and using them - the red liner was definitely a fave :)

Waka: A pretty man with a LIGHTSABER.

*Ahem* My first thought when I saw him ^^; lol

That's a really snazzy piece though, the coloring looks so very clean, and almost marker-like despite being done on Photoshop. - thumbs up!-

Pretty men with lightsabers can only be topped by one thing. Pretty men with lightsabers who also cook! That would be all sorts of incredible :D

And thankies so much!

Wow. Just wow!

I cannot fave this because I'm waiting for my twisted fangirl of a friend to finish Okami because I told her that there is a super special awesome "Fangirl" surprise at the end. She's a Kingdom Hearts fan and is being lax-a-daisy on finishing. If I were to fave it right now, she will see it on my account and I will be ruined.

I cant wait to see her face during the final showdown on the Ark of Yamato 'cause I will enjoy EVERY second of it and rub it in her face!:plotting:


Just know that I have faved it in my heart.
