To Tamagahara by skipaway To Tamagahara by skipaway
EDIT 4/7/10 Practically re-drew the whole damn thing for printing for AB2010 since it was such a wonky size and wouldn't scale to tabloid size T_T Worth it in the end though!
Going to be selling off the surplus prints to make room in my place as well :P

First: AAAAAHHHH, NEVER AGAIN

Second: I apologize in advance for epic imagesize. Also, who chose that goddamn palatte for the solar flare?! Talk about painful to work with ;__;

Hah, in with an hour left to go! Thank you Pacific states. For the DA/Capcom Okami contest in case you couldn't tell. I am a procrastinator of the worst kind, and I learned a painful lesson about that tonight. Sketched at work on Sunday and banged out yesterday/tonight in two sittings.

I wanted to try a group of some sort and it was a close call between the brush gods and the fave characters...this won out because it worked better with the tall banner idea. And Ammy has her traditional markings since it's my favorite form to play her in :3

Final notes: The gods are in Zodiac, not game, order. Just fyi. Scanning leaf paper to overlay on the background was really hard for some reason - it just did not want to come out right on the screen the first 4 times...

Okami and resources (logo and map background) (c) a lot of people who aren't me
- - - - - - - - - -
pencil sketch
photoshop ink and color
7 hours total
- - - - - - - - - -
edit: after a good nights sleep, slightly tweaked some small things. Theme song for the whole thing was "Ain't No Sunshine When She's Gone" which is perfect for Ammy

son of edit: progress! If you're interested and all [link]

return of the edit: fullsize (300dpi, 2550x5667 minimum reqired) for download is still being grumpy about being uploaded ;_;

the edit strikes back: feb2010 completely reformatted the entire image to fit 11x17 for print size for con thingie. It sucked doing it. A LOT. But it's done *phew*

Thankya! The flare was so much fun to do but OMG so many clashing colors...staring at them too long burned my brain a little bit XD

Just came back from the parlor :) its not done yet, will be back next week for the 2nd session. Btw sorry if its not the same as your design, the artist suggest to use a darker color than white.

Here's the pic: [link]

Holy shit, that looks amazing! Your artist is really talented, and definitely right about white (plus, white hurts so much, I can't imagine trying to do that to your whole arm XD)

Ugh, sadly, I'm not, but my sister is! What can I have her look out for? (Booth number, etc.?) I may have to send her on a mission! :D
Reply
:iconskipaway:
skipaway Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2013
Mission accepted! if she does swing by, our studio is called HighWireCats and I believe the AB site has a map of all the tables - we're in a corner next to a hallway methinks...

For the first time, we'll be doing Otakon as well (scary and exciting) in case you go to a bunch of different cons! Either way, I'll also keep an eye out for any purty Okami art to let people know about :3
