The Okami Brush Gods.

I started this piece well over a year ago. I sketched it out and put down the base colours, but then got completely stumped on how to handle the painting! I've never done a piece with this many characters before and I really was intimidated by the complexity.

Fast forward to now and I happened to come across the piece buried at the bottom of my art folder and rose to the challenge of finishing it.

I'm really happy with the lighting, although I didn't use references so there's definitely gonna be some issues in places!!

I haven't actually played Okami myself, but this is undeniably epic artwork. If the game is as visually stunning as this fanart, then I'll be certain to give it a go.
The attention to outlining for every creature is visibly clean. Perfection on the smoothness side.
Lighting is rather well done too, especially the glowing rays given off from the 'rising sun' in the background. Very reminiscent of Japanese iconography.

Shading is spectacular, one of the most detailed I've ever seen. With the picture resolution, I can make out every circular(?) brush stroke coating each and every spot of the piece. I can actually feel the effort poured into the art.

Though you mention 'issues', I can't actually fault the drawing: if this was drawn by memory or imagination, then it was done brilliantly.

Anyway I'm going to wrap it up since I have an endless river of compliments gushing out after seeing this, which I probably couldn't fit here. I am in awe.

Keep up the art, Louise!

I love how much effort and detail was put into this piece. It turned out great!
The thick black outlines are a nice touch and echo the game's visual style, and each character looks consistent in terms of brush strokes and overall technique. I think the only thing that bugs me compositionally is that the top of the dragon was cut off at the top right, when everything else is so beautifully framed. I feel like it could have been used more effectively in that sense, but aesthetically it doesn't hurt the piece much.

Keep up the amazing work!

Thank you so much for your kind words and for featuring it, I really, really appreciate it!!!

I cropped the image as I felt otherwise the gods at the bottom were too far to the bottom of the piece. I understand what you mean though, I could have positioned the dragon's body a bit better to help with framing. Thank you for the critique!!
