I just couldn't let it lie! I had to give it one last push.
This is my 2nd, and last entry to the Okami contest. I have seen the other entries, and bloody hell, I don't stand a chance, but I still wanted to enter just one last time :3
This be Amaterasu (And Issun), rejuvenating a guardian tree with a brush technique.
One of my favourite things in the game is when you bring life back to a village. It's just beautiful! The game really is art, but in computer game format.
The cherry blossom here is real cherry blossom. I went out, collected some, and pressed them over night.
Ugh, still working on assignments, but... as you can probably tell by the theme of this piece, I'm feeling more optimistic about it! And my laryngitus (which was what I fell ill with) is clearing up! This week in college to go, and it's all finished with for the year! It's looking a lot more brighter :3
So I'll be back after this week, and thank you everyone for your support on my last picture! I'll be back soon to reply to things!
Hope you like! :3
