A drawing of the the Sun Goddess from me? i guess you never expected that! hehe :rofl:
But it is Okami! i love that marvelous game! i don't have the game i only played a bit on my friend's house :la: i plan to get it as a christmas gift :D my family always asks me: what do you want for christmas? then i say: just give me games and will be happy for my entire life with them :XD: and it is truth lol :dummy:
Okami for me is a unique game i adore games that you play as a non human/humanoid character :dummy: playing with a wolf is surely very cool! and all the nature and stuff that you must restore in the game.. :D (and there is a button just to bark! i love that hahahaha :rofl: ) the art style of the game is also unique some people dislike it but i find it very interesting and pretty and even more pretty with the HD version for ps3 which i want for christmas :XD:
Drawing this was very fun! and i used something new: real brushes! i'm very satisfied with the result and i'm surely gonna use the brushes in others traditional arts! the reason why i tried brushes is because in the game you use the celestial brushes... then i though it would be a interesting idea :)
Amaterasu is very cool i adore her! she deserved a little fan art C:
(i hope i got all her marks right lol XD)

uhh finally I've sat down with a working computer and give comments ! :iconanimefaceplz:

indeed ! I didn't expect a drawing of Amerterasu XD

oew indeed, brushes can give nice effects 8D and they turned out great here !
the pose is really wel done, and very dynamic, the effects around the wolf really add to the dynamic feel :D she really seems in motion, and powerful in a true way \m/ also adored how you drew the flame thingie on the back, and the curving fur :love:

I only think there are a lot of bugs in the anatomy, the body, head and tail look good though 8D ofcourse you barely draw canines XD maybe ths can help O3o
its mainly the length of the neck and the legs; I think the head should be a bit bigger and the neck a bit shorter. the back leg's muscles look a lit too human to me, the fibula is too big, it should be a bit more slender I think. also, the paws look a little too slender. and they only have four fingers. these might help; whole
body; [link] [link] [link]
paws; [link] [link]

but its just my opinion O.o

anyways., awesome drawing ! :headbang:

wuuuu :XD:

uhh thank you a lot for the nice comment buddy! :la:

ahh and yes..i know i made some pretty anatomical fails there..sadly only when i began to color the drawing i realized the problem with the head and neck XD but i finished the drawing anyway O3o
must the motive that i rarely draw canines as you said D: then i tend to make neck and head longer huh phail..
let's see next time i really should take a look at some refs or else maybe my wolfs and canines will end as the fail canines we see around DA

you're welcome ! :hug:

nah just gave the tips so it may can help when you draw a canine in the future ^^

uh I bet however it goes the wolves you draw won't end up like the sparkle abominations that appear on this site O.o

we should get a steve erwin on da
":iconsteveirwinplz:WoaW! look over there ! RIGHT there, that's a sparkle dog! one of the most failing sparkling creatures in oall the planet ! these critters can sparkle even more then twilight vampires, and there sparkles can blind yu. this creatures are actually very sick canines, who caught a terrible disease, called Sparklytyfus. it's brought ovah by teens who think they can draw. now I'm gonna catch one, and put it out of his misery, and make a nice coat"

uhhh... I don't know where that came from.
Svartya Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2013  Student General Artist
ah yes those photos you sent me were a nice ref :) damn me i tend to draw everything longer too XD

uhhh no Steve! they are more dangerous than Australian snakes,crocs and sharks together! the sparkling is mortal! don't get close to them!
they are threading many others species! we will have to hunt them down to save the endangered species! :ohnoes:
It will be a glorious battle but..
you have my sword and my bow and THE POWER OF DARKNESS! :iconblackbangplz:
