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.
