Okami: Celestial Mirror by Risachantag Okami: Celestial Mirror by Risachantag
More post-con inspiration! With this design, at first I was thinking it'd be neat to have an Okami pin badge of some sort, but then I remembered that the place I usually get pins made also does designs on the back of pocket mirrors.

That would work pretty well for Okami, huh? Especially seeing as one of Ammy's weapons is a mirror... So I suddenly really wanted to make an Okami mirror! ...not that I really need an excuse to do more Okami fanart. =P

The coloring of this picture is available as a recording on my livestream account: [link]

Time: About 3-4 hours
Tools: Photoshop CS3 & Wacom Intuos tablet

I love the colors used in this work. The tones of reds, greens, and golds bring the wolf into focus nicely. The maroon border is an interesting color I'm still deciding whether I like or not. Compositionally it's very pleasing, and the style is consistent throughout.

However...there are a few anatomy issues with your wolf. Particularly the front leg on the left. It looks broken, because the bone and muscles arent connected properly. The head is a bit blocky shaped, but still visually pleasing.

I suppose my only suggestion really would be to use a few more real life references for your foundation sketches. This reminds me of those beautiful plates some people collect.

Keep up the beautiful work!

Love the colours and love the composition. Plus the overall vibrancy of the piece is just amazing, and Ammy herself looks delightfully huggable. ^^

I love the playful pose and you really made bright, complementary colors work. :D I'd more than gladly have this on the back of a compact mirror.

The design is very interesting. It looks so intricate and precise, yet expressive and random. As in, I can't tell whether you just let this design spill right from your mind onto the paper, or if you sat there and slowly worked on it. I love the burgundy border (probably spelled "burgundy" wrong), it compliments the overall design really well, more than I would've expected it to. The colors are beautiful, and they don't take up too much attention, which is a great thing. Beautiful and majestic.

i dont think that the right front leg can do that, horses can but i dont think dogs, cause right now to me that leg looks pretty much broken, but other than that epic colours and everythin'

Cool. That is a good idea. ^_^ That should be made into an actual window or at least a plate.

Nice work! Nice brisk coloring really nabs those greens and reds. C:

Though the vid says you used CS4 (for some reason it says CS3 here), so did you use both programs or what?
