Full view is definitely recommended to see the shoddy details XD.
Originally for the Okami contest. I'm slightly disappointed with the winners that the DA staff picked -_-.
I tried to show what Amaterasu's Bloom might look like after the brush technique. Dead land suddenly sprouts grass where she stands (and glowing yellow Praise
) and the celestial cherry blossom petals glow and start becoming part of the tree from the top. The clean water ebbs towards the tree as well.
I added in the kanji because I thought the white border too plain. Read from top down:
O - kami (wolf/god) (haha pun!)
For the record, I don't actually know how to read or write kanji and just copied some things online, so my strokes may not make any sense .
I'm really inept with the sumi-e style, but I tried to add this "painted" feel with black "ink' by outlining a few things. For the ground texture, I skewed the parchment background provided in the resources pack. For the water, I layered the cloud/swirl parts of the same parchment background.
