White Light Majesty by starshock12 White Light Majesty by starshock12
"Ah... Amaterasu. Origin of all that is good and mother to us all..."
-Celestial brush Gods

So... I worked on this almost 15 days straight. Right now I'm 2 hours away from the deadline and I just threw the towel XD Soooo much worrrk. So the concept in this is pretty simple: Okami Amaterasu (okami is wolf in japanese) stands firm under a deity of darkness and despair, yet somehow shines brightly through the evil veil. That's my take of the game. XD

I would like to edit this someday, to add more details and to fix anatomy but as of right now I don't want to look at it LOL
But thank you DeviantART for finally giving me a reason to devote some time to draw fanart of this glorious game title!!

BE SURE TO DOWNLOAD PLEASE!!! I WORKED MY BUTT OFF ON THE DETAILS. THIS IS THE ORIGINAL SIZE!

Original size: 2550x3300 with 100dpi

The lighting is incredible. Orochi and the clouds looks amazing. Watch out, Ammy. :P
Just noticing all the detail on Ammy's fur... very beautiful. You've established a powerful contrast between the two sides.

Beautiful~ :) I love the combo of the Ninetails with Orochi together XD
Fantastic job! 15 days paid off :)

Oooh, I also used that same sword and beads together when I fight~ xD It's very convenient to shoot those beads at the enemy, lol, fun stuff~ I miss the game already ;A;

That's so amazing! *-* Downloading shows a looot of otherwise unnoticeable detail. :heart: Love the heads on Orochimaru (I think that's the correct spelling o-o), the clouds, and of course, Amaterasu. =D Brilliant work!

By the way, why won the contest?

Wow, Starry! This looks absolutely amazing. *__* Your digitial and traditional painting has really come a long way, and its so great to see that you've gotten so skilled at drawing and using photoshop and such. It definitely beats what we were drawing years ago. All of us and our crazy Sonic drawings. :)

Sadly, I still have much to learn in the ways of digital painting, but maybe someday i'll be as talented as you are!

Whoa. O:

What really stood out for me when I hit the full-view was the background with the red shape definition and the way you did the fur on the wolf. It's so cool! The red gives it this warm, unreal, maybe even ethereal glow, and it works so well on the black. The whole background is so unified with its color scheme, and it really holds together.

The fur looks great, too. I like how, up close, you can see the texture of it, but it's not blown out of proportion and you didn't waste all your time overdetailing it. It looks better like it is. C:

The whole ground-swirly thing is cool, too!

Epic work!

I have to say, the contrast in the reds and blacks at the top with Amaterasu down there at the bottom is wonderful. She's so much more colorful and yet every bit as vivid. I love looking at this and I haven't even played the games. It's an artwork before it's an homage to a beautiful game. Incredible piece of work, Starry.

Now THIS is the brilliance that is you. :D When I first saw the thumbnail version, I automatically :+fav:'d it...but on Full View? Holy steak sauce. :O It's no wonder you were such a favorite back on NSider--your work is absolute pure eye candy. You've got such a riveting style and a skill for knowing what goes best with what. Honestly, I can't believe what my eyes are seeing. You are the BEST. If this doesn't knock the socks off the judges, I don't know what will. This is definitely the best entry of the entire contest, and I love it so much. XP

WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN!!!!!
