Okami: the journey by zeldacw Okami: the journey by zeldacw
Original size is 8.5x11 300 dpi. (not made available for download) BUT PLEASE FULL VIEW for more detail.

Here is my first entry for OKAMI...^^
90% ORIGINAL ARTWORK, 5% being the texture, another 5% being the parchment bkgd resource...(a very rough breakdown...my math sucks...XD)
I also made the okami logo, because I thought the kanji logo would fit better on the image.

although I never did any fanart for Okami, I fell in love with the game ever since I saw its E3 trailer, but I never get to play it because I can't buy it....$
although I know the chance is very slim...I still want to give it a try!
(and I won't refrain from telling the truth....who doesn't want a Wii...?)

Absolutely beautiful. :heart: This is a winning piece of artwork here, and I wouldn't be surprised in the slightest to see you get a prize package for this one. :) Good luck, and I hope you win!

P.S. I own Okami for the PS2, but I haven't even started playing it yet. XD

aww...how come you don't play it? no free time?
it seems to be a really nice game..^__^

I don't play it because, err.... I have a LOT of games, and I just don't have time to get to them all at once. So a lot of my games I haven't even played yet, even though I've owned them for years. XDDDD I know that's just sad.

oh...sounds like you're spoiled with too many games...XD
the first video game that I bought on my own (with my own money) was Kingdom Hearts. (couldn't resiste seeing Disney and Square together...) it's also the first one I completed on my own...^^
and then I bought Xenosaga (for $ 14.99) ...which...to this day...I still have not finished playing...

(because my brother took the console with him when he moved out...lll)

I own both those games, but I haven't finished either of them yet. XDDD I'm really bad at finishing games, because I keep starting new ones. It's a rare treat to see the credits at the end of the game. I'm really a huge gamer (It's the biggest hobby for me besides artwork), so I tend to spend a little too much money on gaming stuff. XD

Wow! The picture is amazing! I've played the game and the picture fits it really well!
Well, you don't need a Wii to play it, there's a version for PS2.
However, i can imagine the differnce of using the brush withh a Wii and with those PS2 simple analog things *_*

ahahaha....I don't have a PS2 either....XD lll
I don't have any game consoles...
there used to be a PS2, N64, and a NGC in the house...but they all belong to my brother (lucky him)
and when he moved out, those moved out with him....OxQ

but Amaterasu was done by photoshop...^__^
you just need to play with the brushes. try all of the standard ones and adjust their settings in "brush".
I acutally JUST found out about this style for photoshop too...XD lll

Thank you very much~~~>w< !!

I learned photoshop all by myself...and I remember a professor once said, "even after years of using photoshop, you can STILL discover something new about photoshop"...it just has too many functions...XD lll

Oh but you know, Okami was originally released on PS2. It's the same game.

zeldacw Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2008  Professional Artist
I know...^^
that's when I saw the E3 trailer...(PS2 release)
but I never bought it because of $$$...lll
my brother has his own PS2 and he moved out a few years ago...and so logically he took the PS2 with him...XD
and so I haven't touched any game console for a long...long.. time...

(the last time I was playing Xenosage I....is still not finished...and probably never will....lll)

Oh I see ... Well I began Okami because of my boyfriend because he practically fell in love with the game (Who wouldn't, seriously?) and I couldn't find it anywhere ... but one day I found it for 20$ I think.
But today I think that you can find PS2s for not too much money. Maybe if you search in stores (or if you beg your brother XD)

I never feel the "urge" to buy a game console....because I know I need to save my money for a greater purpose...
Last time I "almost" bought a DS Lite (the Gold Zelda limited edition)....well...almost...^__^lll

I guess...it's because I don't have the free time to play them anyway....because when I have free time, I am drawing....XD
