Okami - Tachigami by arrowcrafter Okami - Tachigami by arrowcrafter
My entry for the Okami contest 2008.

Character featured is Tachigami (my favourite character in the game, a rat with a huuuge sword.. who could ask for more? ;3)

Had lot's of fun doing this and it's the first piece in a long time that I've finished before turning to something else half way through only to turn back a week later.

Referenced a lot of in-game screenshots and official art to try and do my best in recreating the look okami uses so beautifully, im not 100% happy with every aspect of it but I don't think thats possible with me >.>

Anyways hope you guys like it, any crit/comments are welcome.

<3

P.S - hit download for the full res version (2550 x 3300, 300 dpi)

Heh, I love it, and since I have a huge screen, it's going as my background. I must say I loved Tachigami and the huge sword. I also love the way how you managed to make such a simple thing as Sakuya's tree as the background, and yet manage to also focus on the brush god, great work.

Fantastic job! This is so, so beautiful! You've totally recreated the feel of the game. I love Okami, but haven't got time to enter ;__;, I'm already up to my neck trying to finish a picture for a stupid deadline in May. I really hope you do well! Sorry I missed you the other day, I hope I see you soon ^__^.

Haha! It's all about the fanart! And that's what I'm doing too, some slashy Harry Potter thing for a community on LiveJournal *rolls eyes.* It has to be done by May 6th and I only started it last night. I'm just not into drawing it right now, but it's a competition thing with teams, so I can't really back out! Ahh well.

I love seeing your work. I'm always astounded. Take care :) x
