Artist Comment

It's been a while, but I'm still here and walling. There was Anime Expo, and then work took hold, and then I went and spent nearly 2 weeks traipsing around Vancouver. Anyways, I finished this wallpaper in time to be a slightly early birthday present to myself, because I give myself the best gifts evar. As you can see, I still love Okami artwork. The image of a napping Amaterasu was too sweet to pass up. She looks so relaxed and cozy. That's what I'd like to be doing all day! The background was composited from a different Okami scan. Originally traced in Illustrator in order to put all the elements together in a single image - I removed a lot of stuff from the original waterfall image, preserving just the cherry tree, island, waterfall and surrounding mountains. Then I smudged and painted the image in Painter. Add some textures I always use on Okami walls to give it that aged ukiyo-e feel, and at last! A wall! After 4 months! It's time for me to take a nap just like Amaterasu!
My J-E dictionary lists an idiom in Japanese that means the same as "let sleeping dogs lie" but literally translated it deals with snakes... so I figured the Japanese title of the wall could be a bit simpler.

    oh i love this, it reminds me very much of japanese woodblocking! i wish that you textured the lines and colors separately, i think it would make it look better, but i'm not sure.

    other than that this will be elite for sure! its so amazingly painted

    Absolutely wonderful! I love this so much, Perfect capturing of the game's art style.
    Kind of reminds me of how I would let Ammy just lie down and sleep just to look at the world. ^_^ Good work.

    So calm and full of harmony.. what i love the most about the wallpaper is probably the composition, makes the whole scenery look like a hidden place for ..."the nice white wolf" (<noob never played okami), where he can remain protected *sets as desktop*. The texture fits pretty well in, wouldnt have tought that when i saw the wallpaper loading from the top - the colors give the wallpaper an additional old paper look, also nice work on that. and and, *looks shy*..i like the pretty colorful flowers /cry
