Amaterasu, the Sun goddess of Japanese mythology and main character of.. Okami! :la:

I've been playing it lately, and this is a GREAT GREAT GREAT game, from the story to the gameplay and all. Furthermore, it's damn inspiring since Ammy is such a beautiful white wolf and the other characters are awesome as well. I want to draw them aaaall! :iconblushingplz:

Well, I painted Ammy howling first, then I wanted her to call for the sun in the middle of a bunch of nasty imps or a cursed zone, but I didn't really know how to do the background, so lurking Okami fanarts on dA I found :icongrypwolf: 's profile , which inspired me with her beautiful work: [link] . Check it out! :D

I was bored making the fur, so it's not really perfect.. But I hope that's good anyway ^^;
- P.S. God, to upload files of >49 MB is a pain. o_o

Thank you :3
It actually brings a tear to my eye because of how beautiful this is. It will forever be my. Favorite, Desktop Background, facebook profile picture, twitter profile picture, tumblr background, and pretty much anything else I can use it for.... I'm joking of corse (other than the desktop) but what you have created is just perfect

Oh my, this is flattering :blush: I'm very, very happy to hear you like my work, and it's always a pleasure to meet other evaluators of "little-known" but amazing videogames like Okami (I guess you played it, right? ...Right??) :D
Thank you again, and please feel free to use it wherever you want (joking or not)!
Of course I've played Okami ;), the reason I was looking at fan arts was for inspiration for my own fan art of the game (witch is now finished) but still this piece is by far the best fan art I came across
