I couldn’t sleep last night so I made a plush of Tobi from Okami.  Tobi is currently relaxing on my couch.

Eyyy, guess who’s been watching Cry play Okami?

I really like the art style and music for this game, but I still don’t think I’ll end up playing it myself. So I caved and decided to draw a human Amaterasu with sort of my own take on her design. (Ammy is female, right? Because on one hand she’s called a God rather than a Goddess, but she’s also called “mother”…? I dunno man.)

I’ve seen so many pretty designs for a human Amaterasu, but it kind of bothered me how she’s portrayed in a lot of fanart wearing kimonos and dresses. I wanted her to look less like a cutesy priestess and more like a fierce holy warrior—not that there’s anything wrong with the former. Just my opinion and my interpretation.

Also, I’m really hoping people aren’t going to gripe at me for making fanart of a game I haven’t actually played myself… ._.

And why the hell do pictures look way better on a text post than on a photoset? Is it something with the resolution or is it just me?

OH MY GOD
I just found this deep within one of my old art folders
I forgot I ever even made this
that must’ve been long before I ever had a tablet…

So I took this poopoo drawing I made 2 years ago and went over and spiffed it up a lot since the original I just whipped up in an hour for a convention, I want to sell it as a print again but it needed to meet my current standards so I essentially traced over the whole thing but recolored and changed it quite a bit overall aside from the pose.
